Gruene Hall in Evening

This is Gruene Hall and watertower with a lovely sky. This is said to be the oldest continuously operating dance hall in Texas, apparently still pretty much just as it always was.  Photos of this building are always marred by power lines.  I did remove a few that went right through the sky…

Gristmill Bar

The bar at Gristmill Restaurant in Gruene, Texas. This restaurant is in a very old brick building, the sort of decor you really only see in Texas…  No, AC, heating by radiant heaters and a couple of large fireplaces. Lots of fun!
