This post is going to be picture heavy.
The weekend was a success, y’all. And by success, I mean “bank account emptying, beer coma inducing, day full of riotous laughter.”
We drove up to Helen on Friday as soon as Mike got off work. Naturally, the day full of glorious sunshine turned to torrential rain the minute we got on the interstate. It rained the WHOLE 4 hour drive there and into the morning. But when we got up at 9:00 to go to breakfast, it was gorgeous outside.
Our digs for the weekend – the Hofbrau Riverfront Hotel
Renee, Me and Rachel
Joe and Mike – had they figured out the puzzle, we would have won a free round of put put. They didn’t figure it out.
Jeff and Rachel =)
All in all, a WONDERFUL weekend. =)
I was in picture taking HEAVEN. If you’re planning on visiting Helen, here are some tips –
1. Get a refillable boot or mug.
2. a- Don’t buy your refills at the Bier Garten. Buy them at Paul’s down the street and across the river. They’re $4 cheaper there.
b- they WILL fill your boot/mug with things other than beer. Don’t be afraid to load that baby up with margarita. It’ll be worth your while.
3. Order a hot pretzel with beer cheese. Your mind will be BLOWN.
4. If you want to eat dinner at Old Heidelberg, be prepared for their rude waiters and refusal to substitute items on the menu. Also be prepared for a hefty bill at the end of the meal. ALSO be prepared for the best wiener schnitzel this side of the Alps.
