Default Gruene, Tx - things to do?

The woman and I are heading down there this weekend for our 2yr anniversary. Besides seeing Reckless Kelly Saturday night at Gruene Hall and maybe eating at the Gristmill, what should we get ourselves into? I imagine we'll hit a few shops up as well...

Lets hear what we have to see/do!

Edit - I should've mentioned we are staying at the Mansion Inn right next door to the Hall.

Thanks,
Lee

Christmas in Greune is awesome right now and the weather should be good for wandering around (maybe rain Saturday, maybe). Parking maybe in tough if you get there late. Been there several times on a weekend and had struggled to find a parking spot, couple that with Christmas......

Downtown New Braunfels is a pretty nice area.

Go to Gruene Harley Davison. Ask for Paul. Get on a nice 2014 Street glide and take it out for a two-three hour test drive!!!

You will not need an itinerary. Just walk around and soak it all in. Kick back and relax. Slow and easy. Head out west to canyon lake and north to the Devil's Backbone for one of the most scenic drives in Texas.

Go to the fly fishing shop, eat at the Grist Mill, have some ice cream, fudge and drink beer. Sit down and watch the crowds. JMHO

I recommend the Gruene Door for you anniversary dinner. Small, less touristy place with a nice relaxed atmosphere. Mozie's for brunch to knock the hangover off. Try the fish tacos or adult grilled cheese. Happy Anniversary!!!

Myron's steakhouse
Huisache Grill
If you want a burger, go to Freiheit Country store
Gruene River grill is excellent in Gruene
Dosarita from Adobe Verde
Go drive around the landa park area of town and look at all of the big urban deer.
Bottle of wine at the Vineyard
Hang out for some cold ones and live music at Oma's

We live less than 5 miles from the Hall so we are in Gruene several times a week. Wonderful place this time of year

Gristmill is overated.

Tourist trap imo.

Average food for a so called decent view.

Just my $0.02!

Bring a light spinning reel or a fly rod. The river is FULL of rainbow trout

Don't forget to take a drive down river road.
McAdoos Seafood or Myrons Steakhouse for a great meal.
Gristmille, Clear Springs or Mozies are good too.
Union Street Station for breakfast.
For a dessert go to 2 Tarts bakery and then walk around downtown.
Enjoy the anniversary.
