QUESTION | How did you celebrate Oktoberfest?

ANSWER | Working.

How many Fest Biers do you think you served that day?

I know at least 200...at least.

What is your favorite festival held along the Grand Strand?

I would say St. Patty's Day. I typically go out to Broadway at the Beach.

If there was a festival in your honor, what would be the festival's special food dish and drink?

The signature food would be wings. I'm a wings girl. The signature drink would be Marzen - our beer here.

What establishment has the best wings?

I like the wings here.

How often do you spend your hard-earned money at the stores here at The Market Common?

I actually go to Bijuju quite a bit.

What else do you spend your money on?

Food and wine.

What's the last wish you made while throwing a coin into a fountain?

I think I probably wished for a horse or something. My dad was supposed to buy me a horse and never did.

Are you going to save up to buy your own horse?

Maybe when I have children and when I have time to ride.
