Spring is Finally Here

The trees and flowers are blooming and Spring is finally here after a very long and harsh winter. Many businesses, including the Klub and Restaurant have suffered financially.

Please support your Klub by regularly visiting the Edelweiß Restaurant and supporting Klub activities.

And…speaking of the Restaurant… join us this week at the Edelweiß:

Everyone is raving about the Hofbräu Delicator Doppelbock. The Edelweiß Restaurant is the only place in the city where you can get it on tap!

Stop in and try a stein of this dark amber colored bier that is lighter than the typical doppelbocks and has a great malty flavor.

Tonight …

Tired of Easter leftovers…then bring the family for dinner and take advantage of tonight’s dinner special – Chicken Schnitzel for $10.00.

Wednesday …

Wednesday night is buffet night and we have a great buffet lined up! This week’s buffet will feature Sausages and Kraut, Goulash, Mustard Chicken, Chicken and Cream, Ham Loaf, German Potato Salad, Green Beans, Cabbage and a variety of Cold Salads. The full menu will also be available.
