German Weekend!

It was a fun weekend!! Mom, Jake, Me & our friend Greg headed down on Saturday to Muenster Texas for their yearly Germanfest. We all had a ball!! Greg was our designated driver so that we could enjoy a few German type beers, Although weirdly enough they didn't have German Beer at the actual "Germanfest''' only at the Resturaunt there in town. It's called The Center and that is where we stopped first, I ordered a plate of pork Bratwurst made by Fischers Meat Co. right there in Muenster, it came with Red cabbage salad and of course sourkruat, Yum! So yummy... These are a couple of shots from inside the resturaunt.


Our next stop was at the Local Fischers Grocery store & yes I did buy me some of those yummy brats to bring home, Which we had the very next night for dinner :o) hee!


Then we were off to Germanfest, It was $6 per adult to get in, Children were free, But frankly, I would not take my children to an event where I knew people were going to be drinking. But I was shocked by the number of people who did.

They had a few tents set up with shopping booths underneath, Mostly hand crafted things, They had food stands everywhere of all different kinds, They had a huge tent set up for the German foods and then another huge tent set up for the polka dancers and entertainers, Most interesting to watch.. Then there was the beer truck! You went to one building to buy your beer tickets, they were $3 each, and yes folks one ticket per beer so they were $3 a beer! Then you took your $3 ticket and went to the beer truck to choose your beer, There were taps coming out of the side of the truck... check it out...



So that was our very fun trip to Germanfest, Childfree day which was nice for some adult time and some adult beverage, Here is a photo of the four of us together oh and I promise you all of those cups were NOT mine.. LOL!
