St. Patrick's Day...

The day started off by leaving Stuttgart and driving to Crailsheim (about 150 km). We arrived around noon and met up with a old friend of Mikey's named Sterling (aka Meatball). Meatball's wife in is in military stationed over in Germany (he is retired Army).

We started by going down to the Post Farber Hotel and getting rooms. We then found our way to McKee Barracks and driving all over it and trying to identify what was were since its been leveled and they have started building what looks like a subdivision over it.

You can see the pictures with descriptions below:

We then wandered around town walking all over the "Foosganger Zonen" (pedestrian zone) and found an Imbiss to grab a bite to eat at. From there back to the hotel to get cleaned up for our night out on St. Patty's day.

We went down to the Irish Pub in town called the Dew Drop Inn and its owned and run buy a couple of Irish guys. Go figure in Crailsheim who would of thought it?

A good time was had by all. Mikey as usual was up singing with the one man band, and talking to every one. We met some folks that used to work on McKee Barracks so hearing stories from them was fun.

All in all an early night. We left around 11:30 and stopped by the Frankengrill, or I should say what used to be the "grill" its now a Chinese Bistro. I got some stuff that had 4 little red peppers next to it on the menu. I still have no idea what it was, but damn it was hot.

Once in the hotel it was quick work of getting to sleep, then Amber called. Talked to her for a few min then back to sleep..

Tomorrow? Prague...
