Hotels >Hausfrau Haven In German Vlg
This combination wine shop and novelty gift store is a local favorite. Where else can you find boxing nun puppets?.
The major reason to visit Hausfrau Haven is the wine: All wines are sold at state minimum, the selection is incredible and the owners will help if you need advice. They have a cheapie fave--Vielle Ferme for $6.99, a mixture of red grapes and a real honey of a drink--and then lots of the good stuff, like a 1970 Chateau Mouton Rothschild for $400. Its tag reads, "Intense aromas of vanilla, honey pears and fruit. Great now."
Lifestyles of the Drunk and Famous
There's even a bottle called "Marilyn Merlot" and one called "Norma Jeane (a young Merlot)." If you're a Bordeux fan, they have lots of the 1995 and 1996 specimens.
Who Needs Spencer's?
For gifts, Hausfrau Haven has some antiques, plus weird, funny, sometimes crass cards and a whole regalia of gag gifts. As if zapped out of the mall and into German Village, two adolescent boys were huddled in the corner when I visited the store, giggling over "Large Toilet Paper for a Big Asshole," fanny floss and the "Over-the-Hill Condom--One Year Supply, Contents One." Stop in for punching nun puppets and glow-in-the-dark finger paints.
