Here's a place for weekend fun. In 1913, the Lyric Theater began as a winter home for movies and shows. It was known as "The Happy Hour Theatre". In 1930 it became The Lyric Theater and entertained movie-goers until 1967 when it closed down.

50 years later, in 2017, with a new owner and major renovation, The Lyric Theater re-opened. Now, the Theater is again serving popcorn and laughs. Next time you're looking for something to do on the weekend give a look to this beautiful historic theater in downtown Flatonia. Learn more here.

BURGERS, BARBEQUE, B&B’S AND BEER. IT’S ALL HERE!


​It’s summertime and we know you’re ready to get out of town! We’re throwing down some mouthwatering, just-off-the-grill burgers and barbeque so come and get it. Chase it all down with an ice cold brewski and chill in one of our many B&Bs for a short, sweet weekend away. We’re featuring a few restaurants and B&Bs for the very first time and bringing up some we’ve chatted about before in Carmine, West Point, Ledbetter, Round Top, Burton and La Grange, TX.
 
Keep a watch out in our August blog for more places grilling and chilling in Fayetteville, Cistern, Flatonia and Schulenburg!

Eat up, drink up, shop and stay.
 
Burgers are definitely on the menu at the popular JW’s Steakhouse and The Pie Shack in Carmine, Texas. And you'd be crazy not to try the desserts at both! Go exploring and put your boots up for the night before heading back to the big city. And the Stuermer Store is less than seven miles from Carmine in little Ledbetter. They’re slinging a pretty good burger and it’s so worth dropping by.
 
At West Point Crossroads in little West Point, Texas, you can get a burger for less than $6.00. Welcome to the country! Of course Round Top has lots of places to drink and eat up. Royers Caféis awesome sauce. And the fantastic Feed and Firewater has mouthwatering burgers and mouthwatering everything else. The Round Top Area Chamber of Commerce offers this list of eateries and historic B&Bs in and around town. And in Burton, Texas, right down the road, there’s the Burton Roadhouse for burgers, beer and lots of righteous bands!
 
At Texas One Stop in La Grange, indulge in a tender, slow-smoked, 3-meat BBQ plate. Or, check out the burgers at Riverside Café in La Grange – it’s in a little strip mall right off of Hwy 71. Blink and you may miss it. And you can always go back for breakfast.
 
Sammy’s Sports Grill is minutes away from the fabulous town square. B&B it overnight then go back for more. And peeps, Sammy's has wings with ghost peppers. Seriously. My Office Sports Bar and Grill is just down the street from there and it just opened up. We’ve bragged about Prause’s Meat Market, the ultimate country meat market. Everything at Prause’s rocks. Get there early! Also in La Grange, right off of Hwy 77 is Legal Tender Brisket & Brew offering smoky ribs, tangy slaw and ice cold beer. The Back Porch BBQ is an award winner located on N. Jefferson. Sit outdoors. That’s where to nosh and here’s where to stay. Trip Advisor has a few more good ideas.
 
Sunny skies and fireflies.

Summer in the city? Every weekend? With sunny skies and optimal stargazing, it’s time to head here for some fresh air, barbeque, burgers and beer in quaint, friendly, little out-of-the-way places. Final touch: We've got fireflies.
