Opening Morning at Biergarten Haus
For thumbnails (images only, not the full post) check out my flickr stream here.
I'm here right now taking a look at the scene as is unfolds. The first patrons just sat down and ordered. Everyone seems excited. 2 minutes after the doors opened.
They've set up a tent out back to make it easier to see the tvs out back. I'm going to go ahead and throw up the other photos.
I might be sending some updates via cell phone, so bear with me if the formatting looks different.
Talked to a few neighbors. One was checking out the space for the first time, and selecting the perfect seat out back. Another said this was his 4th time in, and his goal is to eventually try every beer on tap.
They're giving away mini-soccer balls out back. Oh, and people are starting to to order breakfast (the menus just arrived).
The first customers toast the occasion. Breakfast arrives, as do the biggest sun umbrellas I've ever seen.
The crowd is really growing now. Great vibe. Sitting next to a man who travels regularly to Germany. He teaches country line dancing, and polka dancing Now he's polka dancing with a friend of mine.
I spent a bit more time chatting outside with friends and watching the game. We saw a couple of small children, and one highchair. I'm headed out, but I think this was a great first morning for these guys. Most of the crowd appeared local (lots of familiar faces), and everyone was in good spirits.
