There’s no school on Friday, so our weekend officially starts early. That’s why we’re giving you an extra day to finalize your weekend plans!
We hope you enjoy our first-ever Easter Edition of Weekend Roundup! It highlights just a few of the wonderful events happening at Lake Travis area churches, as well as local restaurants hosting special Easter brunches.
If you’re looking for something to do tonight, there’s plenty! Check out live music at The Oasis and Poodie’s. Plus, there’s a petting zoo and face-painting for the kiddos at Kid’s Eat Free Night tonight at Table 620 (H-E-B) starting at 6pm. And, Hill Country Galleria is hosting its April Wine Walk from 5pm-9pm.
Before we dive into the holiday weekend, let’s take a look back at what happened this week …
Yesterday, Cathy reminded us to drive Texas friendly. Bad drivers may be frustrating, but trying to snap a pic of one for the purpose of driver-shaming online is not safe for anyone. Come on, people. Stop the nonsense.
In other news, things are buzzing in Lakeway with three items on the ballot for the May 6 election. There’s a City Council election and two propositions. One is for tax bonds that includes the new police facility and the other is for the re-authorization of a 1/4 percent local sales and use tax to maintain and improve streets. We’ll explore these items further in the upcoming weeks.
Enjoy your long weekend and happy Easter, Lake Travis!
