1. Women & Whiskey

Interested in growing your drinking palette but not sure what you’re exactly missing out on? Well, our friends at La Cantera Resort & Spa will be showcasing a variety of different whiskeys once a month with Women & Whiskey.

They’re looking for smart, bold, and diverse women to join and complement the selected whiskey brand of the month! In February St. Liberty will take the spotlight and we’re excited to taste and learn more about Bertie’s Bear Gulch and others just like it!

“Deep In The Art Of Gruene” is the new motto and we’re rolling with it all of 2021! 

That being said, you can definitely catch us at the Gruene Market Days come this Saturday because shopping and trying new yummy foods is our favorite, especially when it’s local!

The featured vendor is Carvel Vintage! The creator and artist Jenny Reacer gives extra life to your home or office by recycling vintage items and turning them into something special just for you! The pieces vary from super cool musical lamps to glass insulator lights, the perfect statement pieces! 

The Gruene Market Days provides great quality items and buying local is great for the economy. A reminder that the show goes on whether there’s rain or shine! See you there!

4. Chili Cook-Off

Our tummies are rumbling for something comforting, delicious, and warm.. It could be because we’ve got another 6 more weeks of winter. As declared by Phil, the most famous groundhog of course!

We got the perfect place in mind! Caliente Harley-Davidson is bringing the HEAT, kinda.. This Saturday they’ll be hosting a Chili Cook-Off for everyone to enjoy and it could get spicy! Get ready for some yummy chili AND beer tasting.

There will be 14 participants, first come first serve! So if you’re interested in a cook-off challenge then email:

There will be 1 ultimate winner and a runner up. Plus there’s also a people’s choice, so get creative with your booth ideas too! The chili will be judged on aroma, texture, color, and taste! Bring your A-game for both the cooking or tasting! 21 and older to drink, cheers!
