Ruby Tuesday



These stained glass windows are from Zum Stammtisch, a German cuisine restaurant in Glendale NY.





Stammtisch means "Family table." We had an excellent meal (I had the same thing I ate last time I was here. Veal Cordon Bleu.) They didn't have Potato Pancakes because they don't make them on the weekends. What's that all about?

Hope you'll join us for Ruby Tuesday and post some RED, a lot or a little, in your own photos.

Mr. Linky is below. Please leave a comment and visit your Ruby Tuesday friends.

Love the brilliant red in these pics - not so easy to obtain such a true vermillion red!

Happy Ruby Tuesday to everyone!

No potato pancakes on the weekend? Gah! That's just wrong! I really like the stained glass.

Peggy said...

what fun!

Nora Johnson said...

Had a computer malfunction just as I was completing the RT post's final pics (am now "borrowing" another) - rest assured will be up just as soon as my own computer's fixed.

I got problems seeing the photos, they ain't loading...I'd be back to see what's up in the "cracker barrel"

Robin said...

Mmmm... potato pancakes. I love all the bright colors here. Happy RT Mary.

Like your previous post about delectable German food, spaetzle and Pilsner completes a fine meal. Lovely stained glass!

Yhe windows have such a vibrant array of colours and love the detailed action of the figures!

Carletta said...

Beautiful stained glass and windows!
All this talk of food makes me think I might grab a snack before visiting all these Ruby posts. :)

Rinkly Rimes said...

Red is said to be the colour that stimulates the appetite! So it added to the enjoyment of your palate!

Pagan Sphinx said...

I'm glad you had the opportunity to photograph some great windows AND get a good meal!

I would have been terribly disappointed over the lack of potato pancakes. There are no German restaurants close to us but we ate at one in San Francisco that was excellent!

I'm playing today, Mary. All the girls in the photo are expecting! ;-)

ellen b said...

Hello Mary! Love those stained glass windows! I love potato pancakes...Happy Ruby to you...

Felisol said...

Beautiful stained glasses at the Family Table. If the rest of the restaurant keeps the same standard, it sure must be worth a visit.

Loree said...

Interesting stained glass. Great choice for RT.

nonizamboni said...

Beautiful surroundings but I wonder about those potato pancakes too.
Happy Tuesday, Mary!

Roger said...

Aw those arrr great rubies Lass!

I have mine up Marry it has been a long time sense I joined in and am happy to do so today! :)

Rita said...

Mary, your windows are fantastic. You may remember that stained glass windows have a special place in the lives of the Old Salt and me.

They would be perfect in our town which was founded by German settlers and where over half of the population two hundred years later is still of german extraction.

JunieRose2005 said...

Love your reds, Mary!

I have a RT up this time!
Come see!!! :)

Mama Ko said...

These are beautiful art to see while eating in that restaurant.

Sara Chapman in Seattle, USA said...

Mary, now that's a brilliant red. Who knew that stained glass predated computer monitors for the most brilliant reds ever!

That's strange to see the German gothic writing in New York, lol ! A "Stammtisch" is a table in a Pub, which is reserved for men groups of all kind, from card players to local politicians. There is a sign standing on the table with the name of the group and nobody else is alowed to sit there.
It's well illustrated on the pictures.

Hootin' Anni said...

I love German food. Well, heck any food. LOL

Hope your week is treating you well.....

Here's My R T for the week

Put a Tiger in Your Tank!

Jientje said...

Mmm, veal cordon blue, yummie! ( I must be hungry, it's almost noon where I am!) That's a lovely stained glass window!

Coralie Cederna Johnson said...

Campbell Soup Kids say HAPPY RUBY TUESDAY!

Auntie E said...

Lovely stained glass, great St Patty theme. Happy Ruby Tuesday to you.

Candy said...

Yeah, what's the deal...no potato pancakes on the weekend! So that's why they are wearing RED COATS.
Going to think about taking the Limerick challenge.
Tuesday Blessings ;-)

gemini said...
