There are only 12 days left until school starts in the Lake Travis area, so get out there and make the most of it, friends.
Go day trippin’ in the Texas Hill Country, get out on the lake, visit a Lake Travis swimming hole, or just sleep late. Whatever floats your boat!
Before we dive into weekend activities, let’s take a quick look back at what’s buzzing in Lake Travis …
On Thursday, Cathy gave us the scoop on a new beer garden coming to the Lake Travis area called Hops & Thyme, Beansprout Pediatrics new office in Dripping Springs, and why The Backyard site plan keeps getting stalled.
What else is going on? Lake Travis is the best high school football program in the state and this new restaurant is a little ways out of the area, but may be worth a stop when you’re headed down 360.
For next week, we’ve got even more craft beer news to share because another local brewery is headed way out west. Have you tried Taiwanese snow ice yet? We’ll introduce you to it and have more to chat about next week.
Until then, have a great weekend!
