    Octoberfest number is disconnected!? Does this mean there is no room left? What time is it at?

    Hollywood, the last day to buy tickets was the 14th. I saw WSB’s posting of this event the following day on Facebook. I was very disappointed.

      It’s been on the Events calendar for a few weeks – I just put it up the other day as a reminder; most folks set deadlines but have tickets available after that anyway. – TR
