Herzlichen Glückwunsch zum Geburtstag!


My birthday isn’t for a few more weeks, but I already got a birthday present. Before seeing who it came from, I thought it was another card M made for me online for Valentines Day that took a wee bit long to arrive (I would post the one he gave me, but it’s not PC… sorry folks). Nope, not M, but Troy Germania Hall.

How did they even know it was my birthday?!?

Oh, there’s a birthday club? Yeah, I probably did sign up for that.


If you sign up, this is what you get – $10 off dinner when you buy another dinner for full price. And considering their dinners are not pricey (the most expensive item, prime rib is $15.95), the birthday discount makes it a steal. And from what I remember of the place, their beers were on the cheap side too.
But here’s the catch. If I go there, I can’t bring M (See?!? Being a vegetarian in upstate New York is a PAIN IN THE YOU KNOW WHAT. Can’t go anywhere) since he’ll have nothing to eat other than some grilled cheese. And all of March is a wash for me since I gave up meat for Lent and this thing goes until the 31st. Yeah, yeah… there’s fish on the menu. But I am not using this card for fish. Pssh… my discount scoffs at the thought.

So April it is. And I’ll have to round up people to go with me. Albany Jane? Professor Fuss? Any other local people, bloggers or not.

It’ll be fun. People in lederhosen. Accordion serenades. And German beer. Ja das ist gut.

If I could sneak away from the family, I'd meet you there. Never heard of the place. Sounds good.

From what I remember it was a fun time. The clientele is on the other end of the spectrum. I got the feeling the people that go there have been going for years.

And there's lederhosen! And dirndls! And other Germany things!

If you're having trouble remembering, I think that qualifies as a good time...
