Texas RenFest 2011: Yes, They Had No Wildfires; Go! It’s Great…

We didn’t make opening weekend of the Texas Renaissance Festival this year, but we got there as quick as we could. Only to run into a big ol’ batch of pirates. It was Pirate Adventure Weekend! The opening show was stuffed with silliness, and the only thing missing was a crowd. Attendance was down, […]

It’s That Time of Year Again: Texas RenFest Date Set…

After mind-altering, tough negotiations that lasted less than 30 seconds we now have set the date for our annual family outing to the Texas Renaissance Festival: We’re going on October 22. It’s a long day, starting before 5 A.M. and ending sometime short of midnight; at least it’s traditionally that. I do the driving […]

It's Wurstfest Time!

Last night was the kickoff of the 2010 edition of the Wurstfest, in one of my all-time favorite towns, New Braunfels, Texas. Even more special, this year is the 50th anniversary of the Celebration of Sausage! Plenty to do, with dancing, drinking, eating, drinking, polkas, drinking, melodramas (Harry Potwurst and Order of the Opas; […]

A Wintry Time Was Had By All: The Texas Renaissance Festival

We made opening day (October 10) at the Texas Renaissance Festival this year. We hadn’t done that in a decade or more! We went prepared fore wet weather, as a cold front passed by during the night. We didn’t have any rain all day, though. There was quite a bit of water in the […]

We're Off to the Texas Renaissance Festival Today

A major portion of the Clan is making its annual pilgrimage today to the Texas Renaissance Festival near Plantersville. It’s opening day, and rain is expected; we know it’ll be slippy-slidy crazy good fun! Period music (Cantiga, The Burly Minstrel Jim Hancock, Wine and Alchemy, Istanpitta, The Bilge Pumps, The Gypsy Guerrilla Band, Tartanic) […]

Texas Renaissance Festival: Hot, Cool, Spicy

Yesterday the family and a select group of friends traveled to Plantersville, TX to visit the 34th Annual Texas Renaissance Festival. (That’s 35 years continuous running, every Fall!) This year the Festival runs every weekend from Oct. 11th through Nov. 30th. The RenFest is held in a large, private park about six miles south of […]

Turnabout’s Fair: German Food in India?

I recently mentioned that I had eaten a nice curry dish while flying to India on Lufthansa, the German airline. Well, it seems turnabout’s fair play. Last evening I enjoyed an authentic German meal here in Hyderabad, with a hint of Oktoberfest provided, and in the company of a truly international cast of characters.

It was […]
