Helen, GA was such a beautiful Alpine village. We checked into our condo and decided to check out the Festhalle. We could walk to the hall from our condo, only about 2 blocks. We could hear the German music when we approached the building. They had a 4 piece German band from Florida, not Germany. There was also an accordion player that would rotate with the band. They served about 6 different bratwursts with sauerkraut, rotkraut and German potato salad. We had dinner and a few German beers. One of their domestic beers was Leinenkugels from Wisconsin. I mentioned that I was familiar with Leinenkugals because I had family in Wisconsin. He was impressed that I knew how to say “Wisconsin” correctly. I guess my northern accent came through.

At the end of the night, the band came over to the only table remaining. We just happen to be at that table. Hee Hee
About 2 or 3:00 am, we had a visitor. A drunk tried to put his key in our door. Dave told him through the door that he was in the wrong place. After getting they both got a little louder, he left.
