Upcoming Events

Don’t miss the big dance at Anhalt Hall tomorrow. Should be a blast.

If you are wanting to do something outside, today and tomorrow would be your best bet. A cold front is heading this way and the highs will be only in the 50s over the weekend. Have fun.

When is the last time you went to Luckenbach? Well, that’s too long. Saturday would be a great time to head out that way because that is when they will be holding their annual Blues Festival. Music, food, drinks, and of course the world renowned Luckenbach chickens will be there for you to enjoy. Do not fret, NFL playoff games are on Sunday. Have fun.

More trout stocking by TPWD happens tomorrow in Brady at Richards Park, and Kerrville at Louise Hays Park. Opportunity is at hand, fish on. Remember, Wednesday is always a good day to skip work. Just sayin.

Shout, lout, pout, kraut, no it’s trout, trout, trout, Those fine folks at TPWD are going to be stocking trout tomorrow at Lost Maples and at South Llano River State park. Skip work, call in sick, tell somebody you have to get a wart removed, do whatever is necessary. You only get a few opportunities each year for the TPWD to stock the flappers in two state parks in the middle of the week on the same day. Excelsior!

Looks like Saturday morning would be a great time to go out for a hike. There are plenty of places to go hiking such as the Hike and Bike Trail in Austin, the Purgatory Creek Area in San Marcos, and the Panther Canyon Trail in New Braunfels. Another option would be to head over to the Guadalupe River State Park for their guided hike on Saturday morning. Doesn’t matter where you go, just get out, stretch your legs, and then watch football for the rest of the day if you desire.

Trout, trout, trout. The good folks at the TPWD are going to be stocking those delicious flappers at Blanco State Park tomorrow and on the Guadalupe River around the 4th Crossing on River Road down from Canyon Lake the following day. Should be a great opportunity to catch some fish, but be sure to check on the forecast because it could be chilly in the mornings.

If your team isn’t playing until Sunday and you are looking for something to do on Saturday, you might want to consider heading over to Pedernales Falls State Park. You can go for a hike, take lessons in building a campfire, learn all about atlatl hunting, and then go on a stargazing party. All that is for just the regular price of admission. Check with park staff for details. That or you can sit around the house and listen to all those gifts that make noise the grandparents gave to your kids recently. Have fun.

If you want to get in some exercise at a gorgeous location and learn how floods and grass fires influence the landscape, then you might want to head over to Inks Lake State Park Saturday morning. That is when park staff will lead a 2.5 hour guided hike of just under 2 miles to tell you about how the park has been shaped by those two naturally occurring phenomena. Don’t worry, the football game doesn’t start until 3:30. Have fun.

Hard to beat this one, tonight there is a free show at the historic Gruene Hall featuring the Georges.  Now that is a good way to start out the new year — free band at a world famous dance hall.  Have fun.
