Oma Gruene's Secret Garten: Live Music in the "Secret Garten"
It was a December evening, and I was walking in the center of Gruene, beautifully lit for Christmas, when I heard a song by Johnny Cash. I followed the music and reached Oma Gruene's Secret Garten.
A bearded blues singer, armed with his guitar and sound equipment, was sitting on a small stage at the far end of a beer-garden, with picnic-table style wooden tables and benches. The weather was a bit chilly, but it was still possible to sit outside (they also provide heaters).
Junior Nash was singing blues, country and folk, and I greatly enjoyed the music, with a bottle of Alamo beer and a Reuben sandwich. There was no extra charge for the music. On the Biergarten's business card Paul Davis and Tracy Graves promise "live music, cold beer, simple and delicious food", and they keep the promise!
