Summer Days


Saturday, July 24, 2010

Event planned by
Allan Gazza

What is better to do on a Hot Summer Saturday in July other than taking a dip in the swimming pool? I would have to say taking a drive during this Texas heat wave weather through the rural parts east of New Braunfels on small farms and opportunities to see deer, and Texas wildlife prior to enjoying our stop at Dry Comal Creek Winery. After the winery we will enjoy the Friesenhaus German restaurant in New Braunfels. See below to join us on this fun event.

About Friesenhaus-

This is the beginning of our "American Dream". Over years we had the idea to immigrate to the United States for almost the same reasons like millions of people before: Searching for a better live for us: Günter and Cornelia Dirks, our sons Peter (20) and Walter (18) and future grandchildren.

It was a family decision to move to United States and after getting our Visa, we bought a one-way-ticket into our new live in March 2005. We decided that New Braunfels in the beautiful Texas Hill country should be our new home. Here just in the center of the historic downtown, we opened up our new German Restaurant & Bakery "Friesenhaus" in the old building of former "Krause's Cafe".

Each day Friesenhaus prepares a variety of different desserts such as old fashioned cakes and tarts, pies and cream puffs, strudel, cheesecakes and other mouthwatering desserts.
