American Day Festival this weekend!

Looking for something fun to do this weekend?  

     Come out and join the American Day Festival in Erlangen!  This looks like it is going to be a fabulous event, and a fun-filled day of American traditions, food and some great music.  The Ansbach U.S. Army Football team will also be squaring off against FSV-Erlangen Bruck, which should be an exciting show of teamsmanship and friendly competition!  And don't miss the live Jazz concert featuring Jazzband Willetta Carson!

Edamame in Erlangen!!

After 3 years in Germany, I have finally found Edamame in Erlangen!!  I was so excited I bought everything they have... I hope I have enough freezer room!



I found it at Xing Wing on Friedrichstrasse - just another reason to love Friedrichstrasse!!

So now, I'm wondering - have any of you found it in our area?  Please leave me a comment if you know of any other shops, and their location so that I can share on our food page!
