There certainly remains a considerable German influence in Galveston, New Braunfels, and of course, Fredericksburg, but mostly it is the German food that one notices today. Relatively few of the Germans survived the 1900 Galveston Hurricane and those in Fredericksburg didn't fare too well in the Indian Wars. More noticeable today is the Czech influence.

Here is info on two of the more prominent Galveston Germans:

More on their story can be found in Isaac's Storm.

My chili, aka Pray for Death, contains lots of onions, garlic, and tomatoes, as well as a host of other things not discussed in the article. Competition chili does NOT have beans except as served on the side, but when I make Wick Fowler's for plain satin' I put in beans.

Galveston has other haunted restrooms, the most famous of which was in a Mediterranean restaurant on the Strand that featured a male ghost that liked to follow women into the Ladies room. Hurricane Ike ended its reign of terror in 2008.

No bones about it, Miss C, this is a good article, but it begs the question - exactly what is the funnybone?

Due diligence reveals that it is another term for the humorous.
