Gemütlichkeit, a German term that translates as “a space or state of friendliness, warmth and good cheer,” is the ideal name for the atmosphere of Gartenfest, an official Fiesta event hosted by the Beethoven Maennerchor — Texas’ oldest active singing society, founded in 1867 — in its endlessly pleasant beer garden. Combining live music, some seriously great grub and folk dance performances of the German variety, the three-day shindig fits right in with the Maennerchor’s mission to “preserve German song, music and language.” $3-$5, 5pm-midnight Thu-Fri, Beethoven Halle und Garten, 422 Pereida St., (210) 222-1521, beethovenmaennerchor.com. — James Courtney
