Texas Renaissance Festival is Great This Year

I caught a last-minute chance to run over to Plantersville (Todd Mission, actually, but who knows where THAT is?) and attend this year’s edition of the Texas Renaissance Festival. Boy, was it fun! Music, shows, food and drink, and lots of shopping…

I was there mostly for the music and the provender, and I thoroughly enjoyed […]

A Few More RenFest Snaps

Faeries and giants; buccaneers and polliwogs; troubadours and gypsies. And that’s just in the first fifty feet! Here’s a few more of our favorite images from the Texas Renaissance Festival:

The gypsy songstress with Wine and Alchemy.

A real hurdy-gurdy!

Working hard at having fun.

Enjoy the (Costumed Pageantry) Heat!

Texas RenFest 2011: Yes, They Had No Wildfires; Go! It’s Great…

We didn’t make opening weekend of the Texas Renaissance Festival this year, but we got there as quick as we could. Only to run into a big ol’ batch of pirates. It was Pirate Adventure Weekend!

After mind-altering, tough negotiations that lasted less than 30 seconds we now have set the date for our annual family outing to the Texas Renaissance Festival: We’re going on October 22. It’s a long day, starting before 5 A.M. and ending sometime short of midnight; at least it’s traditionally that. I do the driving […]

Follies Extra: The OC Fair and Triglycerides OD

Okay, our post of a couple of days ago about croquettes has now been upstaged. There’s a new kid on the block, and it ain’t no fish tale either. No, this one’s much more dangerous, and wacky to boot.

I’m talking fried Kool-Aid. Little deep-fried balls with kids’ drink inside; a croquette, according to the […]

Barbeque, Knick-Knacks and Snow White: Dinner Theater With a Contender

Last evening we went to a special event. The Catholic high school in Seguin has a tradition of delivering great one-act plays; they’ve been to State competition several times, and this year will make three trips in a row. Maybe they have an unfair advantage or two. Like truly engaged teaching and coaching. Parents […]

Everybody, Let's Get Ready for Mardi Gras!

Okay, so you can’t make it to New Orleans for the celebrations. You can still have fun at your place! Tuesday evening you can celebrate in style, as befitting a proper Fat Tuesday. You can go back on your diet the next morning, on Ash Wednesday.

So, what plans have you made? We’re still considering […]
