In reality, I'm terrible at accents and envious of people who can do that.

If I had that ability, I'd abuse it every chance I got.

I used to work with a lady who did a fantastic impression of Scotty on Star Trek. Whenever I was having a bad day, I'd ask her to speak like Scotty for the rest of the day for all work-related discussions.

It made everything better.

If you could learn the words in German to "Springtime for Hitler" from "The Producers" I'm sure you'd be a hit. We did not have a great experience at that German restaurant (really just one waitress; wdidn't stick around long enough to eat), but I imagine any resident Germans in the area will know of it.

Queen, there are a few German lunch clubs and meet ups in and around Hendersonville. I may have sent you a name or two before you moved, DM me if you want a contact name in that area. As Samoi said though, Haus Heidleberg seems to have slipped quality-wise in the past few years, not a popular place anymore. (You might also think about putting a blurb in some of the church newsletters in the vicinity.) The www.blueridgenow.com (Times-News) or www.citizenstimes.com (Asheville paper) may have public service free space for free ads about get together groups.

Thanks for your msg. By now have you heard about the small German restaurant in Black Mountain? I've been there, but cannot remember the name of it. Many of their products are direct from Germany, love their bread !

I think it is berliner kindl. well, I have not been IN there, but mixing berliner kindl (that's a speciality drink from Berlin, very north), Edelweiss and the 'lederhosn' (leatherpants) which are popular in bavaria (at least that's what tourists think lol) - very south ... is such an awful combination of all stereotypes .. i did not dare to walk in yet

If we buy a second home in the area maybe we'll meet with you. My wife's grandparents on her mother's side, and my great-grandparents on my father's side, were from Germany. My side from Essen, I think hers from the north.

I'm a "little" late in my response but better late than never as say say.
I was born and raised in Germany and now live about an hour away from Asheville near Blowing Rock.
My husband and I do drive to Asheville a few times a year since I got my art work on display at
one of the galleries at the Grove Arcade. How long have you been here?

funny, i have my artwork at the Grove park Inn (gallery of the mountains) as well (in fact, i need to go there again and restock!) what are you selling?

we moved to Asheville exactly 4 years ago (we live in S. asheville, 15 min. from downtown - 45 minutes between 5 and 7pm ).
we moved to the states 14 years ago. and will move back as soon as Trump has been elected.

check out our facebook page (germans in western north carolina), we are about to plan another meet up some time soon.

bis dann
