You can't document Octoberfest without documenting the recreational binge drinking.
Patrick Leonard of Chicago sits on a curb near Division Street and College Avenue in the later hours of Octoberfest in downtown Appleton, Wis., Saturday, Sept. 29, 2007. Leonard, describing himself as 'bored,' said, "I kinda want to go to the bars right now."
This picture alone doesn't tell the whole story. But this was the quirky frame from the day that made me laugh and smile.
