When you should slow your roll …
You can drive 55 Sammy Hagar. And that’s what TxDOT wants you to do on Highway 71 from the Bee Cave city limits to the Pedernales River. This does not change the “left lane for passing only” sign for being known as the most ignored sign in Texas.
When you get a chilly slap …
Enjoy your last day of spring-like weather. You’ll see a 30-degree temperature drop in the Lake Travis area with a low around 36 degrees before dawn on Friday.
When you want to blame someone for that chilly slap …
It’s this armadillos fault. Bee Cave Bob said spring in Texas was coming early. Way to go Bob.
When you have 13.5 million dollars …
You can say that with your pinky on your lip Dr. Evil, but you’re not alone. More than one person wanted to buy the Belle Hill Estate at 3312 Bee Cave Road. The property went under contract with multiple offers on the very first day.
When you hit the pause button …
Do I get a t-shirt with that? Residents of the Homestead neighborhood donned red t-shirts and showed up in court. They want the city of Bee Cave to determine a solution to the low water crossing in their community, and the Travis County Commissioner seems to agree with the plan.
When you’re located in a strip mall …
Take care of your dry cleaning and hangry feeling. La Bodega Gourmet in Bee Cave is on the list of restaurants that deserve more hype. Chef Eric Paz cooks up a new variety of paella every day.
When you want to keep playing …
Wednesday morning was National Signing Day. These three Lake Travis Cavaliers committed to a future in college football.
And playing …
It’s what happens when you’re raised in a quarterback factory. Remember the wild ride with this former LT high school quarterback. On Saturday, Garrett Gilbert will be the starting quarterback of the Orlando Apollos during the grand opening for the Alliance of American Football.
When you want a view from atop a telephone pole …
Take the Quantum Leap at the Miraval. The 220-acre property overlooking Lake Travis is now open. Plan a visit and improve your wellbeing with yoga, healthy eating, body treatments, and outdoor activities like climbing and standing on top of a 30-foot telephone pole.
