Reise Nach Düsseldorf: Altbier!
Like I’ve mentioned before, 2011 will mark my first official in-person Eurovision experience. I’m incredibly excited to be working with my OGAE chapter (Rest of the World) and the chapter’s official site, www.esckaz.com!
Anyway, as I’m preparing for my ESC trip, I thought I’d share the moment with you all. Starting today, and going through my trip to Germany, I’ll be occasionally putting up videos of my own personal “Reise Nach Düsseldorf”. It’s nothing fancy or high tech at this point (what can I say…my experience with video editing is less than copious!), but I’m looking forward to being able to interact with my readers on a whole new level.
If you’re either from Düsseldorf or will be joining me at Eurovision this year, let me know! How should I prepare myself for the trip? What are some of the local sights that I should take in? How about the best local restaurants to check out, or places to see and be seen? I’ve got two full weeks in North-Rhine-Westphalia…let’s make it fantastic together!
Here’s my first entry, where I test out the local brew…Altbier!
Again, major thanks go out to the Ale Jail in St. Paul (and their vinicultural counterpart next door, the Wine Thief), my local go-to-spot for hard-to-find beers from all over the world! If you’re anywhere near the area, check them out! http://winethief.net/
