Last Weekend of Oktoberfest

One more weekend Oct 19-20.  Come out and join us. YES, we’re open. A little rain this afternoon didn’t stop the party! A cool breeze is even blowing.

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.   The music? Drinking songs,  rock songs redone by a wild accordion, and they’re bringing a fiddler for some polkas.  It’s going to be lots of fun.  (7pm-11pm)

Saturday 3pm there are the Dachshund Races!  And during the afternoon, 2 performances by New Orleans’ own 610 Stompers.  As well as more German music, beer and food, of course.

The New Haus

Construction is finishing up on the new Haus on Moss Street.  From January, when the foundation was finished and the steel started to go up, it progressed until this point, when what’s left is mostly detailing on the inside as well as necessary things like 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 a few hours later, the party came.
