If sipping a tangy Bloody Mary overlooking the lovely blue shores of Lake Travis sounds good to you, head on over to Lucy’s on the Lake this weekend and enjoy their daily crawfish boil. Besides, isn’t that what weekends are for?
Before you take a look at the upcoming weekend, let’s take a look back at what went on this past week …
On Wednesday, we gave you a stellar Spring Break “To Do” list featuring more than 30 fun things to do in the Lake Travis area. With the lakes so full and the weather so comfortable, it’s the perfect time of year to get out there and discover all of the fun right here in your own backyard.
On Thursday, Cathy introduced us to the new & improved McArthur’s menu and let Lakeway’s little breakfast secret out of the bag. Did you know McArthur’s serves up breakfast seven days a week from 8am-noon. Pancakes, bacon, omelets, biscuits — oh boy!
