Gruene Hall

Saturday we went to Gruene Texas with friends for the ceremonial Christmas lighting and the arrival of Santa Claus. Gruene Hall is a famous honky tonk in the tiny town with the same name. It's a cute historical district not far from San Antonio basicly in New Braunfels. Gift shops, antique shops and great restuarants make up the street that is Gruene Texas. There's not mush else to it.
Texas has a lot of famous honky tonks but Gruene's claim to fame is a portion of "Michael" was filmed in the dance hall. I loved John Travolta in this movie. He played Michael the Archangel. I think this movie and Pulp Fiction really propelled him along in his career. Really cute movie to rent if you have not seen it.
The Christmas panic is starting to set in. I have so much shopping to do. I know, I know, I need to make lists and stay focused. I try every year to start early but some how it does not matter. I always panic. This year I'm making a promise to not get my panties in a wad, not worry. It does not have to be perfect. Ha! We will see how long this last!
Good Luck Y'all!
