Guten Tag! Oktoberfest- NAIOP’s Social Event of the Year, held on September 22nd was a tremendous success. Members and non-members alike came together at Hofbrauhaus Las Vegas for food, drinks, networking, and fun. The party began at 5pm with guests entering the Biergarten while being greeted by members outfitted in Lederhosen. Takeaway gifts provided by Martin-Harris Construction as well as Bavarian checkered and German Alpine hats were handed to guests to get everyone in the spirit. A photo booth sponsored by Design Builders gave guests the opportunity to take a photo in a green pasture with props consisting of steins, accordions, “I HEART BIER!” and “OOM PA PA!” signs.
Food was served buffet style and included giant pretzels, Bavarian potato salad, mashed potatoes, meat and cheese platters, Bavarian sweet and spicy mustards, and of course sausage, upon sausage, upon more sausage. At 5:45pm a Stein Holding Competition sponsored by US Bank and overseen by the Hofbrauhaus regular MC Johann who stole the show as contestants struggled to keep from spilling their “Bier”. Shortly after, a costume contest sponsored by Nigro Construction took place with a runway of Lederhosen and other outfits. The winner, determined by cheers from the crowd was outfitted head to toe in a Bavarian checkered suit.
To wrap things up, NAIOP’s Community Service Committee organized a raffle with all proceeds benefitting the charities NAIOP Southern Nevada supports. Prizes included a drone, 12- and 18-year Glenlivet Scotch, and gift cards, among others. The room didn’t empty until after 8pm and all in attendance were entertained from start to finish. NAIOP’s Oktoberfest definitely left an impression as one of the best events in all of Southern Nevada Commercial Real Estate. We’re looking forward to seeing you again at Oktoberfest 2017! Danke!
