When Thanksgiving is over …
You won’t believe your eyes when you visit Santa’s Wonderland at the Hill Country Galleria. Jaw-dropping amazing! The queen of Christmas, LT’s Gina Provopulos, worked her festive magic. If you want to get in the Christmas spirit, head over to Hill Country Galleria for photo ops galore, extended shopping hours, a family fun run, a nightly tree show and more.
When you can’t find or keep good help …
Lake Travis business owners, we’re feeling your pain. The Lake Travis area is not served by mass transit, and it’s difficult for working locals to find a decent priced rental. This $30 million affordable housing community is set for the Lakeway area and a step in the right direction. Affordable housing is nonexistent in the western portion of Travis County.
When you need to review and revise …
You are now suspended without pay. Lakeway has some work to do on its ordinances, policies and procedures, and training regarding employees and officials entering private property. It all started when a Lakeway code enforcement officer entered a home without permission.
When you’re penalized for a gesture …
OU still sucks. And you can’t unhook ’em at this sold-out game.
When you get an erroneous Gatorade bath …
It was like football in a space-time continuum last weekend when Texas A&M and LSU played on Saturday night for 4 hours and 53 minutes making it the highest scoring game in FBS history.
When the game against Westlake is a holiday …
Friday Night Lights in Texas. The Lake Travis school district 2019-2020 instructional calendar is out for approval. Next year, the first day of school is August 14 and students will have October 11 off for the Westlake football game.
When you’re craving a steak buffet …
Have some salad with that. You can get it all at this churrascaria that is now open in Lakeway.
When you’re the most-googled recipe …
Guess what, Texas? Here’s that recipe you were looking for.
