Some homemade kolaches to get you in the mood...
Fancy a day trip? Head out to East Bernard next Saturday (June 14) for the all-day Kolache-Klobase Festival.
You can get your mitts and mouth on plenty of sausage, barbecue chicken and real kolaches (unlike those silly doughnut things you see at many places around here) and take in more polka music than you ever thought possible.
Be sure to bring a cooler. Vincek’s Smokehouse (Texas 60 at U.S. 90A, 979-335-7921) is a great place to stock up on barbecue and smoked sausage before heading back to the city. – Jay Francis

Producing stories on everything from political scandals to the hottest new bands, with gutsy reporting, stylish writing, and staffers who've won everything from the Society of Professional Journalists' Sigma Delta Chi feature-writing award to the Casey Medal for Meritorious Journalism.
