It’s a Texas tradition to tube the rivers of new Braunfels. SJCC is going to tube(float) the Comal River again this year. There’s lots to do and many good restaurants with a variety of American and German cuisine. Come to make new memories and deepen friendships with fellow SJCC members.
River Run Condos: You must call in advance to reserve your condo. Condo prices are cheaper after Labor Day. They have (2) 1 bedrooms, (21) 2 bedrooms and (2) 3 bedrooms. You may need to get with another couple to share a 2 bedroom. If you need assistance with that, maybe I can help.

It is quite alright if you prefer to travel on your own Friday.
Afternoon activities may include: lounging by the pool, bar hopping downtown (Phoenix Saloon, Downtown Social is a new one, Krause’s Biergarten) shopping in Gruene close by or just taking it easy.
Friday night dinner is on your own. Here are some suggestions:
Los Cucos, Gruene River Grill, Huisache Grill, Krauses Café and Biergarten, (Alpine Haus, Friesenhaus, River Hofbrau are mostly German food)
Saturday: Meet at the tube place at 9:30 Depart at 10:00. Bring sunscreen, hat, river shoes. No disposable containers are allowed so drinks must be put into Tupperware type containers. No plastic, paper, styrofoam or glass allowed this year. Look at website: www.texastubes.com
If you don’t wish to tube, that’s Ok. There’s plenty of shopping in nearby Gruene or just lounge by the pool. Gruene Market Days will be this weekend! There are several Antique Mall (Red Rooster is my favorite)
Saturday night dinner we will eat together at the Grist Mill in Gruene. Meet in condo parking lot by office at 6:30
Sunday: There’s a couple of good bakeries & breakfast restaurants in town. (Buttermilk Café, Naegelins German Bakery)
Return to Houston on your own.
