Last Weekend of Oktoberfest

One more weekend Oct 19-20.  Come out and join us.

Closing out the stage on both Friday and Saturday nights is the high energy, Grammy-nominated Alex Meixner band.  Frontman Alex Meixner plays accordion and trumpet, sometimes simultaneously.  His band joins in with guitar, brass and drums.  The music? Drinking songs, old rock songs redone by a wild accordion, polkas.  It’s going to be lots of fun.

Saturday during the day there is the Dachshund Races!  And performances by New Orleans own 610 Stompers.  As well as more German music, beer and food, of course.

Admission is $8 – Children 12 and under free.  *More Info*

The New Haus

Construction is finishing up 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.   By September,  the exterior brickwork was looking complete.  At this point, it is just detailing on the inside as well as inspections and permits.

So above, the Haus is all cleaned up on the outside on a Saturday morning, still fenced in, waiting for the party to start.  And the party came.
