The Mt. Lavinia Hotel's Oktoberfest event page  has pictures and updates of the event, which is where we got that ^ picture from. Meanwhile, we also called nearly all the hotels and half the pubs in Colombo trying to figure out where else Oktoberfest would be celebrated, and found like four (or five) places which have plans.
