Lunch at Alpine Village

lil mikey | Sep 18, 200910:44 AM     2

Who knew Alpine Village has a live band for lunch? It’s not the Octoberfest event, as that’s held in the big tent out back. This is in the regular restaurant for a normal weekday lunch. It’s a 10-piece band with a whole horn section, drums, etc. and they go through old German standards.

They had about 30 tables full of diners, mostly all over 50 years old. And several of the diners got up to waltz after lunch.

The food’s okay, nothing to crow about. They do a tasty weinerschnitzel, but I wish they’d include pickled cabbage with it instead of steamed veggies. The smoked pork shank was fine, but looked and tasted like a thick slice of ham.

This is a hoot, and what a surprise.
