|It'd been about 20 years since Raoul had been to Gruene Hall and he'd forgotten just how great a place it is. The music was great, the beer cold and the girls pretty. What more could you ask for on a beautiful summer evening? Raoul and his party spent most of the time outside in the patio area where they could talk, hear the music and enjoy the crowd.|
Raoul ventured inside several times to check out the dance floor and the band. You'll notice some pictures are mottled, that's from having to pull some detail out of a basically black photo. He used the flash occassionally, but didn't want to blind the dancers or get wacked with a cue stick. But for the most part the pictures came out great and if you were there, especially outside, you'll probably see yourself or a friend.
If you haven't been to Gruene Hall, take the time to make a concert or spend some time after tubing some of the finest Guadalupe River stretches anywhere. Dinner at the Gristmill overlooking the river is a treat anytime and if you can, stay over the night at one of the inns.
You'll notice in the pictures the age range at Gruene Hall is about 5-85, so pack up the family and head on out to Gruene, it's not just for young in years-it's for the young at heart!
There's so much to do in Gruene, you'll never get bored. There is a schedule of events on Gruene Hall's website; the city doesn't have one yet but rumor is it's being considered. Raoul gives Gruene and the Hall 4 Jalepeños!
