Boerne businesses prepare for solar eclipse crowds

One Boerne visitor traveled from Luxembourg and stopped by to take in the sights of what he hopes will be a momentous day on Monday.

SAN ANTONIO — Boerne carries a lot of history… And on Monday even more history will be made with the total solar eclipse. But how are local businesses preparing for an event of this magnitude?

At Richter Tavern, history is ingrained in its mahogany. Owner Guy Sanders says the bar at the business was built in 1869.

“It is technically the second oldest operating bar in Texas,” Sanders said.

The cherrywood and mahogany mix bar has modern out-of-this-world creations.

“We call it the blackhole sun,” Sanders said. “The moon itself is a frozen dish of espresso believe it or not. Our sun cocktail which is basically our own spin on the whiskey sour.”

Sanders is not putting a sour note on the stir surrounding the solar eclipse.

“I think it’s going to be a great day, and we’re just going to have a lot of fun,” he said.

One Boerne visitor, Miguel and his family, traveled all the way from Luxembourg and stopped by to take in the sights of what he hopes will be a momentous day on Monday.

“10 hour flight from Amsterdam to Panama, and then we spent a week in Panama and we came to Austin. We flew in yesterday,” Miguel said.

This will be Miguel’s fifth eclipse.

Abbey Frazier is the owner of Shoppes at 222, and feels a local touch to a global event is a can’t miss.

“So I have about 15+ different vendors in my shop, they’re all local: San Antonio, Bandera, Boerne,” Frazier said. “Just to be able to provide that little nostalgia of ‘Welcome to Boerne thanks for coming and take this home.’”
