Crimes of Munich's Oktoberfest
(1) So far, security officials have seized 92,000 glasses that visitors have tried to heist as souvenirs.
(2) Mulled wine is being served (as a temporary measure), due to cold temperatures putting folks off of the main draw! Well, the cold is not putting too many folks off. After one week of the two-week event, the count stood at 1,800 liters of mulled wine, versus, uh, 2.3 million liters of beer. (So I guess a few Oktoberfest customers did not attempt to steal their glasses -- or didn't get caught.)
Both crime reports come from this Reuters article.
