The Times-Picayune website recently published an article entitled “The new Deutsches Haus along Bayou St. John in New Orleans coming along like a smooth beer.” It has some lovely pictures of the interior and interesting views of the items in the warehouse waiting for their turn to be used when the new Haus is ready.
Construction is moving along on the new Haus on Moss Street across from City Park. In January, the foundation was finished and the steel started to go up. In late February, the roof trusses were put up and the building took shape. Lately a lot of the work has been on the interior, but in early August, the roof is complete and brickwork is in progress. Some of the brickwork is very intricate.
Our valiant volunteers are moving everything to Moss Street from Ridgewood Drive in Metairie, including the bear. Doesn’t the bear look chill? Ready to parade the streets with his own piano on the trailer. What could be more New Orleans?
Trivia night on Friday July 27 was the last event at the Metairie location. Events will start up at Moss Street with Oktoberfest on October 5. Regular events like Trivia and movies will resume after that.
