Swilling Brewskis in Ballston Spa (for a good cause)

The Handsome Husband and I headed over to the Brookside Museum  in Ballston Spa Saturday night for their annual Oktoberfest fundraiser. (Hey, it was a civic duty, okay?) 
The crowd was cheerful and the food provided by Rolf’s Pork Store of Albany was good and hearty, if not exactly a veggie lovers dream.

We enjoyed our serendipititous table companions, two pleasant couples with a teacher spouse each.
Lively German music was provided by this fellow, who did a great job looking and sounding the part...
The museum was hoping to raise $10,000 last night for education programs.  This is a tough time for charities and non-profits and Brookside was showing some signs of this. As we strolled about the grounds, HH pointed out that this beautiful old building desperately needs a coat of paint. I hope somebody will come to the rescue for that project.
