When you want to crack your dessert …
Choose a cup-like crepe, croissant, or brownie pastry shell. Pipe in your choice of pastry creams and top it off with a spherical chocolate shell that is filled with house coulis (a sauce made from fruit or vegetable puree) and meant to be cracked like an egg. FoliePop’s opens in the Hill Country Galleria in spring 2020.
When you have a favorite …

When you’re in, or you’re out …
With the end of the regular season for high school football this weekend, let’s take a look at all of our area districts and see which teams are in contention for a playoff berth.
When you’re not accepted …
The Capital Area Metropolitan Planning Organization’s 2045 Regional Arterials Study was renamed and heavily critiqued by the Transportation Policy Board on Monday. The $1.5 million study is a big-picture transportation modeling exercise that was intended to serve as a kind of connectivity wish list for local governments across the region. The study is particularly attractive for smaller jurisdictions (think Lakeway) that don’t have the resources to create a transportation plan of their own. Austin Mayor Steve Adler also proposed changing the meeting language to reflect that the board “received” rather than “accepted” the briefing on what would now be known as the Regional Arterials Inventory.
When you’re a cut through …
Lakeway residents are very concerned about the prospect of quiet neighborhood streets — like Rolling Green and Clara Van — being opened for connectivity traffic.
When you live in a tinderbox …
River Place and several communities nearby face some of the highest risk of catastrophic wildfires in the Austin area. And the city of Austin released an audit in late October indicating the city isn’t doing enough to prepare.
When someone says you’re overvalued …
Austin’s housing market is “overvalued,” according to CoreLogic. The area ranks in the top 5 nationally for new home sales, but the metro still doesn’t have enough starter homes to meet demand.
When you vote …
Voters across southwestern Travis County approved the Travis County Groundwater Conservation District’s Proposition A, clearing the way for members of the district’s board to regulate groundwater across a wide swath of land in southern and western Travis County.
When Halloween is over …
Merry Christmas, Lake Travis! Uhm, er, well… it’s not technically Christmas, but you know how the holiday time warp goes after Halloween. But no need to panic, because the Lake Travis area will be chock-full of shopping & decor options, just in time for the holidays.
