Oktoberfest: Eat with Your Eyes! The only thing better than cool decorations are ones you can eat! Make a pretzel garland (thread twine through the top loops or use an upholstery needle) and hang it. Tell guests to tear them off if they're hungry!
For those days when you're feeling a little cheesy, this Oktoberfest Fondue is just right! Step 1: Heat beer and vinegar to simmering for 25-30 minutes. 2: Shred cheeses for 2 cups Gruyére and 1 1/2 cups Cheddar. 3: With whisk gradually stir cream cheese into beer mixture; stir in cheeses. To remove lumps, blend with blender, hand blender, or strain through fine-mesh strain. Transfer to fondue pot to serve.
