Happy Friday, Lake Travis friends!
Tonight it’s Cavalette and cheerleader recognition night at the Lake Travis game, so get out there and root for the gals who root for the home team. The Cavs play the Hays Rebels at Lake Travis high school. (Game starts at 7:30pm)
And in other news, happy National Coffee Day!
Today you can guzzle caffeinated deliciousness without the guilt. If you’d like to treat yourself to a free cup of Joe in and around the Lake Travis area, we’ve got the details about who’s offering what.
In Lake Travis, we love our mobile businesses — food trucks, mobile gaming, and mobile vets. Did you know we’ve got mobile tanning?
You never need to feel “tangry” again. (Like hangry but instead of being hungry and mad, your tan is fading and you’re mad.) The Tan Kitty has relocated from sunny California to sunnier and hotter Lakeway offering full-service, safe and custom spray tans.
We also found out that the old Wal-Mart in Four Points is going to be an office building, a “modern” office building. For those of you hoping for another big-box retailer, sorry to dash your hopes.
Enjoy your weekend, friends!
