Get Out there And HONK!
It's Sunday. We're enjoying a long, snoozy and leisurely brunch but then getting our HONK! on. Yes, the HONK! street band festival is back in town this weekend and it has invaded Davis Square, where people are literally dancing in the streets. There are a large number of bands from all over the country. We've already made new friends from Milwaukee and New Orleans but this band was our favorite so far: Detroit Party Marching Band. They seem to be stirring up the most fun and were impressed that I was born in their fair (well, except for the economy, city planning, and loss of Motown) city! Plus, who cannot love a band with a mascot named Whiskey The Fighting Cock? HONK! will parade from Davis, down Mass. Ave., into the heart of Harvard Square today to kick off Oktoberfest 2011 with raucous splendor. Believe me, it's quite the colorfully alternative spectacle one could possibly imagine. Harvard Square's Oktoberfest features some of the best street food anywhere. See you there!
