„Ausg´steckt is!“ or “The “Heuriger” is open!”
If people go to a “Heuriger” or wine tavern in Vienna, then it is not simply just to drink wine. They expect the typical Viennese convivial atmosphere, dim lighting, a hearty down-to-earth “Heuriger” buffet, a “G’spritzer” (white wine with sparkling water) and some lemonade. By the way, in a traditional Viennese wine tavern you fetch the food yourself from the buffet. And a real “Heuriger” always has a bushy bunch of fir twigs hanging above the door – that is the sign that it is open or “ausgesteckt” (which literally means the twigs are “stuck out”!).
