Saturday was the big final day in Frankfurt. Not only the spectacular DFB Cup final was on the agenda. This year's Green Sauce Festival also came to an end after a successful week with the big closing event. A total of 49 catering establishments competed for the title of “Best Green Sauce 2018“. In the final, the Gasthaus „Zum Einhorn“ beat off the competition and convinced the palates of the 650 guests in the completely sold out festival tent the most. In seven exciting preliminary evenings, Zum Lahmen Esel, Maingau, Apfelwein Wagner, Waldgasthof Gundelhard, Restaurant Kastanie and the SG Bockenheim made it to the finals in addition to Gasthaus Zum Einhorn.
On the last evening, visitors were also presented with a varied stage programme, which represented a perfect contrast to König Fußball. Among others, the subway control choirs in frozen women's clothes were on stage, there was comedy with Woody Feldmann and musical accompaniment by the Frankfurt Saxophone Orchestra “Band in the Bembel“. Moderators were Anton Le Goff, Timo Becker and Hilde from Bornheim, who guided the audience in a spectacular way through the evening show. Of course, the victory of Eintracht also played a big role here: The program always became a jubilation as soon as Eintracht had scored a goal and the present artists offered the audience an excellent improvised festival soccer show.
When it was clear around 11pm that the cup was coming to Frankfurt, the tent raged and celebrated football as well as the winner of the Green Sauce Festival 2018.
The football fans were thrilled and a non-soccer fan in the tent commented on the evening as follows: „That was the greatest football match I have ever experienced“. And quite clearly: the love of Grie Sooß unites people just as much as the love of football. Such a double final evening couldn't be nicer!
