This weekend I am in Fredericksburg Texas celebrating my grandparents 60th wedding anniversary. I hope someday to have a marriage just like theirs! They are best friends to the core and have been a shining example for my cousins, sister and me of what it means to really be in love.
Tonight we are throwing them a party of desert and dancing with a 50’s jazz band to celebrate their big milestone. With friends and family coming from all over, it is sure to be a bash to remember!
I have spent my fair share of time in this small German town my grandparents call home, and I love sharing all of it’s gems.
Before we get busy welcoming everyone to town and prepping our party pants, I thought I’d share some of my favorite spots in town. If you are ever in the area be sure to check them out!
On your way into town on HWY 290 you will pass a bunch of local wineries. Becker Vineyards is definitely my favorite!
In the midst of all of the wineries is Chef Rebecca Rather’s new hot spot The Pink Pig. Rebecca’s food is delicious and it’s the perfect place to eat for lunch or dinner, especially if you are out touring the wineries. Also, she has the most incredible dog that lays around in the restaurant.
“Vintage Finds, Modern lines” is a perfect way to decribe Red. Red is full of funky interior design and and home decor.
Of course Der Kutchen Laden for the chef!
There are all kinds of boutiques on Main Street, but Root is definitely one of the best. They have great jewelry and fun clothes.
With some of the best German beers on tap you The Brewery has great German charm.
If beer is not your thing, maybe fudge is!
Stop by Bejas Grill for dinner. Their Chile Relleño will not disappoint.
Then hit up Hondo’s for some live Texas Country Music, dancing, and drinks! If you happen to see any of my cousins or me there at any point, you know it’s about to go down!
I’m off to have a fun family filled weekend!
What are you up to this weekend?
