11th Century fun in Dallas
We have a deal with my son. Every year for his birthday, he gets the choice of a weekend away at his choice of destinations or a birthday party near home. He always chooses the weekend getaway. This year, we found ourselves in Dallas at Medieval Times, a perfect spot for a 10-year-old boy who always dreamed of being a knight and his 4-year-old sister who is convinced that she is a princess.

Loudfest offers look at undiscovered music
BCS Loudfest, the punk, rock, metal music festival held in Bryan, has transformed into an annual road trip for me. Only two hours away, it offers more than 40 bands performing on three different stages over three days for only $5. In the past, I’ve gone just to see some friends play, but the three-stage setup motivated exploration and discovery.

Though I missed the first day, my friend’s band, Mothracide, opened up the second day of Loudfest at Revolution Cafe and Bar. Bill Daniels, or Wil.T on stage, performed songs from their new album. Their set featured the offensive punk metal sound, ...

Across Central Texas
What's going on Across Central Texas
Copperas Cove Bike-Run Central Texas Join the dozens of bicyclists and runners seen each weekend on the roads around Copperas Cove along with miles and miles of deserted roads perfect for avid bikers and runners – or beginners. Taking advantage of the area’s popularity with bicyclists, Copperas Cove has long been recognized and promoted as the bike/run center of Central Texas. On any given weekend in Cove, there are 100-200 bicyclists using Cove as a jumping off spot for bike and run tours on farm-to-market and county roads. Cove is in the middle of miles of scenic, well-maintained, traffic-free paved roads. There are at least 25 bicycle routes ranging in distance from 10 miles to 100 miles, loops that start or end in the Copperas Cove area. For more information on touring the area...
