Friday, May 22 – Friday Night Music with Rick Matillo!

Start the Memorial Day weekend off with the comfortable, laid back style of singer/guitarist Rick Matillo. He will be in the biergarten to entertain us from 6 to 9 pm! The Edelweiß’ fabulous fried chicken will be the Friday night special and it’s also Franziskaner Weißbier Friday!

Saturday, May 23

Saturday is looking to be a beautiful day. Get out and enjoy the sunshine or head downtown for the parade. Then stop by the Edelweiß for dinner in the biergarten. The full menu will be available plus over 40 German and Austrian biers in bottles and on tap! We do have a wedding/reception in the banquet room so don’t let a full parking lot deter you from enjoying some great German food.

Looking ahead…
