Bratfest III, Colorado, September 2010

As per the actual citation of Asteroid 7887 Bratfest (Discovered 1993 Sept. 18 by C. W. Hergenrother at Catalina Station): "Bratfest, which celebrates its 25th anniversary in 2003, is an annual Oktoberfest-style party organized by graduate students of the University of Arizona's Lunar and Planetary Laboratory."

Bratfest has now expanded northward, and was celebrated for the third time in Boulder in September 2010 at the home of Marc & Joni Buie. Featured were plenty of fresh Wisconsin brats, tasty brews, fresh grilled corn, extremely local green beans, the famous Bratfest cheesecakes, and plenty of live music. The organizers and cooks did an awesome job: Marc & Joni, Diane Miller, Bill Merline, Constantine Tsang, Erika Barth, Nick Schneider, John & Jane Spencer, Norm Heinen, Pamela Batchelor, John Stansberry, and Chas Miller.
