Happy Friday, friends! It’s warm; it’s cold. It’s warm; it’s cold again. Who’s ready for spring?
We’re loving Bee Cave Bob’s early spring for Lake Travis prediction.
On Thursday, we introduced you to mompreneur and owner of Red Ruby Events, Gina Provolpulos. Let’s just say, business is “blooming!” This Lake Travis mom is elevating floral design at parties, events, and weddings one stem at a time.
In other news …
There’s an Urban Air Adventure Park headed our way! News broke that this 30,000 square foot facility will be opening in Bee Cave this summer. In addition to wall-to-wall trampoline arenas, it will have Dodgeball Courts, Stunt Airbag, Slam Dunk Tracks, Runway Tumble Track, The TUBES Obstacle Course, The Urban Warrior Course™, Warrior Battle Beam and an Urban Air Sky Rider Indoor Coaster.
It’s been a good week for Nick Foles. The Westlake High School graduate — and co-owner of this downtown Austin restaurant — who took his team to the Division I title game in 2006 used an old high school trick for a score that led to a Super Bowl LII victory.
Have a great weekend, Lake Travis!
