Oktoberfest in Gettysburg

Melody and I decided a quick getaway was necessary now that the Fall has hit us right in the face. This is my favorite time of year, and we are in search of a corn maze to entertain and challenge us. So we've found ourselves in Gettysburg, PA, where we are experiencing a steady rain. We're hopeful it will drift out of here by late morning, but doesn't look good.  We're trying to think of a worthwhile Plan B.

We're staying at the really nice Quality Inn General Lee Headquarters, however I found out today they are closing their doors permanently at the end of the year. The property is being given back to the battlefield and the building will be razed.

We were told the Appalachian Brewing Company, right next door, was great, so we stopped in for their Oktoberfest menu.  I had the jaegerschnitzel and mashed potatoes, which, while excellent for most of the meal, came back to haunt me.  Melody had the Brewers Mac & Cheese, which she really enjoyed. We skipped dessert. It's a really neat little place, but it's due to get torn down, as well.

While typing this up, I literally fell asleep in mid sentence. And instead of saving it, I published it. Talk about tired! It's Saturday morning now and I'm finishing it up.

Have a great weekend, everyone!
