Fredericksburg Farmers Market
Welcome to the Fredericksburg Farmers Market. Our 2013 Season begins Thursday May 2nd and continues through August 29th. Join us from 4-7pm every Thursday! (Except July 4th) Rain or Shine!!! The Fredericksburg Farmers Market is a seasonal, weekly event that brings locally grown food to the community. Our vendors are from farms, ranches and wineries that are located in Gillespie and the adjacent counties. Shop for farm fresh produce, eggs and poultry, grass fed beef and lamb, freshly roasted coffee beans, artisan bread and handcrafted goat cheese. Order a brick oven pizza or lamb slider, grab a glass of local Texas Wine and join the community-farmers-market-picnic! Dine al fresco with friends, old and new, while the band plays on and the sun sinks low on the horizon. Be sure and take a walk through the Marktplatz gardens during this special time; the dimming of the day... the colors of dusk are stunning! See you there!
The Fredericksburg Farmers Market believes that it is important to think and act locally. By this we mean, whenever possible buy locally grown and produced food for your table. When you support your independent, local farms, you not only help our environment, but the planet as a whole. Reducing transportation emissions and excess packaging makes a difference for the environment and our bodies. More importantly, nothing taste quite as good as something picked and prepared fresh the same day.

Welcome to the Fredericksburg Farmers Market. Our 2013 Season begins Thursday May 2nd and continues through August 29th. Join us from 4-7pm every Thursday! (Except July 4th) Rain or Shine!!! The Fredericksburg Farmers Market is a seasonal, weekly event that brings locally grown food to the community. Our vendors are from farms, ranches and wineries that are located in Gillespie and the adjacent counties. Shop for farm fresh produce, eggs and poultry, grass fed beef and lamb, freshly roasted coffee beans, artisan bread and handcrafted goat cheese. Order a brick oven pizza or lamb slider, grab a glass of local Texas Wine and join the community-farmers-market-picnic! Dine al fresco with friends, old and new, while the band plays on and the sun sinks low on the horizon. Be sure and take a walk through the Marktplatz gardens during this special time; the dimming of the day... the colors of dusk are stunning! See you there!
The Fredericksburg Farmers Market believes that it is important to think and act locally. By this we mean, whenever possible buy locally grown and produced food for your table.

Reducing transportation emissions and excess packaging makes a difference for the environment and our bodies. More importantly, nothing taste quite as good as something picked and prepared fresh the same day.

Trail Project Day at Enchanted Rock
TRAIL PROJECT DAYS

JOIN US for one of our TRAIL BUILDING PROJECTS at Enchanted Rock State Natural Area. The projects focus on the severely eroded and impacted trails at the park. Come out and help us rebuild and restore these areas.
The work is strenuous and rewarding. Volunteers may be expected to:
1) Load and haul rock, gravel and sand.
2) Work with hand tools (shovels, hoes, etc)
3) Construct steps, retaining walls, water breaks and check dams.
WHAT TO DO
Meet at the GAZEBO at the start of the Summit Trail at 9:00 am on the designated work day. A crew chief will be present to log you in at that time. The volunteers generally work from 9:00 am to 4:00pm, HOWEVER, you can volunteer as little as 4 hours of your time to receive free camping. If you would like to participate with less volunteer time than 4 hours, please feel free to do so, but do not expect to camp for free at the park. Entrance to the park and camping are provided free of charge to all volunteers. Please identify yourself at the park headquarters as a "Trail Project Volunteer" and you will receive directions from the park staff about camping facilities. Volunteers can expect to get in the park with no entry fee on Friday, Saturday, and Sunday. Camping is available on Friday and Saturday nights only. The trail building work days are held on the 3rd Saturday of each month. No advance registration is required. Please email Barry for details or to let him know about a large group. The work crew tour groups all meet at 9am at the gazebo.
WHAT TO BRING
To have a better volunteer experience and protect yourself from the elements, each individual should bring the following items:

sturdy footwear (like hiking boots)
work gloves for your hands
sack lunch and water
hat and sunscreen

The Friends of Enchanted Rock will provide all necessary hand tools and equipment to perform the volunteer work, plus a portable radio and first aid kit for emergencies.

The best MUSIC in the Texas Hill Country is LIVE at Hondo's on Main. And, you can also enjoy the BEST Gourmet burger in town, plus other delicious offerings from Chef David's EXTREME Texas Cuisine!
Tonight music by Houston Marchman. The driving force behind Houston Marchman is his ability to translate real life into music. Marchman spent his formative years soaking up the sights and sounds of America’s heartland. Marchman received his first guitar at the age of 5. Influenced by his musical grandfather and poetic grandmother, he wrote his first song at the age of 13. Today he continues to produce music both poetically humble and musically complex, creating music that honestly and vividly portrays life mixing the sounds of country, Texas folk, polka, conjunto and blues.

Described as a charming and passionate person, Marchman is filled with humorous accounts and boundless energy. He connects with audiences wherever he plays. His fans love the honesty of his music as well as his smoky character-filled voice. Marchman explains his philosophy of writing this way: "The point is not to be creative but to be accurate in your experience and therefore you will be creative. Don't write what you think listeners want to hear, write what you know." Mark Mundy of KNON in Dallas observes, "It's this type of writing that is drawing attention to Marchman and his music. It's refreshing to hear a singer/songwriter who can paint a picture and make you feel like you are there."

Luckenbach Texas Dance with Sarah Pierce Band
Sarah Pierce returns to the dance hall. Direct from Austin Texas, Sarah always lights up the dance hall and keeps you scootin' around the floor.

Sarah is an amazing singer and entertaining performer, with hundreds of thousands of miles of tours in her rear view mirror. She has recorded several albums and received great reviews and lots and lots of attention throughout her singing career.

Born in Rockford, Illinois, and raised in Rural Texas and Colorado, Sarah Pierce is the daughter of a cowboy who was raised in a family of cattlemen. Her dream of a singing started to take shape around the age of 12, and with the encouragement and support of her step dad, a small town doc by day, and a bass player in a country band by night, Sarah probably didn't stand much of a chance at having a "normal life", thank God, and the stage has become her "big comfortable couch", her home. I guess it's only fair to give her just a little bit of credit for at least trying out the whole "normal life" thing a little bit, I mean she did go to school, but I'm not sure if working her tail off to get a post grad degree in medical science, and then moving to Denver to work as a practicing physicians assistant is everyone's idea of a "normal life". I'd say that sounds pretty exceptional, and I'm just happy to have her back to healing our spirits with her voice from the backside of a microphone. Get out and dance the whole night long, cause if ya dance till ya drop, I'm betting she'll know how to get you back on your feet in no time!

"Her lyrics daze with elegant poetry that carries the listener over wide musical vistas on each soul-bearing turn of her incomparable voice." - Los Angeles Times

Fredericksburg Farmers Market
Welcome to the Fredericksburg Farmers Market. Our 2013 Season begins Thursday May 2nd and continues through August 29th. Join us from 4-7pm every Thursday! (Except July 4th) Rain or Shine!!! The Fredericksburg Farmers Market is a seasonal, weekly event that brings locally grown food to the community. Our vendors are from farms, ranches and wineries that are located in Gillespie and the adjacent counties. Shop for farm fresh produce, eggs and poultry, grass fed beef and lamb, freshly roasted coffee beans, artisan bread and handcrafted goat cheese. Order a brick oven pizza or lamb slider, grab a glass of local Texas Wine and join the community-farmers-market-picnic! Dine al fresco with friends, old and new, while the band plays on and the sun sinks low on the horizon. Be sure and take a walk through the Marktplatz gardens during this special time; the dimming of the day... the colors of dusk are stunning! See you there!
The Fredericksburg Farmers Market believes that it is important to think and act locally. By this we mean, whenever possible buy locally grown and produced food for your table. When you support your independent, local farms, you not only help our environment, but the planet as a whole. Reducing transportation emissions and excess packaging makes a difference for the environment and our bodies. More importantly, nothing taste quite as good as something picked and prepared fresh the same day.

Pacific Combat Living History Re-enactment
On scheduled weekends throughout the year, the Pacific Combat Zone comes alive with the sights and sounds of combat on a Pacific island as American Marine re-enactors move in to capture fortified positions from their Japanese defenders. Employing landing craft, tanks, explosive charges and flame thrower, the Pacific Combat Living History programs explain and illustrate the equipment, weapons and tactics American Army and Marine and Imperial Japanese Army forces employed in the deadly struggles on islands like Tarawa, Peleliu, Saipan and Iwo Jima.

For a schedule of Living History program dates click here. Admission to these 90-minute programs is $7.50 for adults and $5.00 for students. Children under 6 are admitted free. Tickets may be purchased in advance at the George H. W. Bush Gallery or the Admiral Nimitz Museum. Walk-up tickets are normally available at the Pacific Combat Zone prior to the program; however, these shows are subject to sell-outs. Earplugs are provided.
The Pacific Combat Zone is located two blocks northeast of the museum complex on E. Austin Street between Elk and Lee
Three programs on Saturday: 10:30 am, 1:00 pm and 3:30 pm
Only two programs on Sunday: 10:30 am & 1:00 pm

The Pacific Combat Zone is a unique three-acre indoor and outdoor exhibit area and living history venue that offers visitors a deeper understanding of the cruel struggle that took place between Allied and Japanese forces on the Islands of the Pacific. Guided tours, starting every hour on the hour between 10 a.m. and 4 p.m., lead visitors through various combat locations of the Pacific War-- the hangar deck of an aircraft carrier with a TBM Avenger torpedo bomber, wings folded back, being readied for a strike; a South Pacific PT boat base with the world's only combat proven, restored, PT boat about to depart on a night mission; and finally an island battlefield, modeled on the Japanese defenses at Tarawa.

Live Music & Fine Dining Featuring "TWO TONS OF STEEL"

“TWO TONS” Show at Crossroads? Might be a good idea to get here early.

$10 Cover (waived with meal)...

If there’s one thing Texans love, it’s a good party. But if you ask self-respecting Lone Star carousers what turns a bash into a blast, they won’t say beer or barbecue. They know it all comes down to the music. And there’s one band that can rouse revelers like no other: Two Tons of Steel.

Two Tons’ rambunctious brand of country-rooted rock has been inspiring listeners in the great republic — and far beyond — for more than two decades, and with its 10th album, NOT THAT LUCKY, the band is ready to throw its weight around even more.

NOT THAT LUCKY, which reached #4 on the Americana Music Charts in Sept/Oct 2009 is the band’s first studio album since 2005′s VEGAS (which ranked among the top 20 Americana albums for 2006) is its fourth helmed by Lloyd Maines, Texas’ most in-demand producer (the Flatlanders, Dixie Chicks, Pat Green, James McMurtry). Explaining why he always clears his schedule for Two Tons of Steel, Maines simply declares, “They’re one of the best bands in Texas.”

And beyond. Already familiar to fans of the Grand Ole Opry, where Two Tons has performed some eight times, and to visitors at Nashville’s Country Music Hall of Fame, where it appears in a documentary about country music, Two Tons tours Europe regularly and in 1997, became the first U.S. act in 37 years to perform in the national theater of Havana, Cuba. It’s so beloved in its home state that Two Tons of Steel is featured in the IMAX film, “Texas: The Big Picture,” and is considered an institution at the state’s oldest, most revered dance hall, Gruene Hall, where its annual Two Ton Tuesdays summer series has been selling out for 14 years (and can be witnessed via the 2006 CD/DVD release, TWO TON TUESDAY LIVE!).

Lead singer-acoustic guitarist Kevin Geil does the heavy lifting when it comes to describing the San Antonio-based band’s sound. “Two Tons is two tons of steel,” he says. “We’re kind of in your face, almost punk rock at times.”

It’s high-energy, that’s for sure. Inspired equally by Elvis Presley and the Ramones, Two Tons combines the talents of the kinetic Geil with Dennis Fallon on electric guitar, Chris Dodds on drums and harmony vocals, and Chris Rhoades on upright and electric bass, joined in the studio by regular contributor Danny Mathis on pedal and straight steel. B3 player Riley Osborne, fiddler Brian Beken, acoustic guitarist/vocalist Tom Gillam and vocalist Drew Womack also played on NOT THAT LUCKY along with producer Maines, who added some acoustic guitar. Gillam, in fact, wrote the closing track, “Bottom of the Bottle,” and sings the second verse.

The album was recorded over the course of a month at The Zone in Dripping Springs, outside of Austin.

“It was really nice, because VEGAS was done in six days straight, including mixing, so there wasn’t a lot of chance to sit back and listen,” Geil says. Recording a few days at a time gave the band the luxury to change a line here and there, or try new approaches — often based on Maines’ suggestions.

“Lloyd is a master at taking what you have and making it better, but it’s still the same,” says Geil with a laugh, “like on ‘Alcohol and Pills,’ which is a Fred Eaglesmith song. When we went in, we were doing it as almost a train beat, and when Lloyd listened to it, he said, ‘Try this. Boom-chi-chi-dom.’ So that right there changed the whole feel of the song. The train beat was just too busy. It would have been a good song, but when you listen to it — when we listen to it — it’s like, that’s right. It’s all about the feel.

“We push the envelope of our abilities every album,” says Geil, “and this album, Lloyd just really did a great job pushing us even further.”

The new disc also contains the debut recording of “Without Your Love,” a song by hit-making tunesmith Monte Warden (co-writer of George Strait’s “Desperately”) penned with Two Tons of Steel in mind.

Geil, who wrote the other cuts on NOT THAT LUCKY, until recently had a second career as the San Antonio Express-News’ award-winning senior photographer. A massive round of layoffs gave him the opportunity to concentrate on the band fulltime. With the kind of work ethic that already has the band performing 200 dates a year, consistently earning top honors in San Antonio music polls and backing by its new label, Smith Entertainment Records, Two Tons is chomping at the bit. The band is itching to get out and pump up new audiences with its Two Tons cheer and its now-classic countrified version of the Ramones’ “I Wanna Be Sedated” (a take so popular, other bands have covered it), not to mention its new tunes.

“We’re primed right now,” says Geil. “We’re ready to go.” Ready to ladle out some hot molten steel, that is.

Directions to Luckenbach from Fredericksburg:

Take Hwy 290 (Main St.) east for approximately 6 miles - toward Austin. Take a right on RR1376 (KOA Kampgrounds and Stagecoach Stop Shell Gas Station). Continue for 4.6 miles and take a right onto the Luckenbach Town Loop... just before the South Grape Creek Bridge.

HELPFUL HINTS:  When driving on RR 1376 DO NOT turn right onto the “Luckenbach-Cain City” Road – keep going. You will pass the large Feed Mill (Behrends Feed/”Uptown” Luckenbach) on your left. The next two rights after you pass Grapetown Road will be Luckenbach Town Loop. If you cross the South Grape Creek bridge you’ve gone too far.

Physical Address for GPS:

Wine to me is passion. It?s family and friends. It?s warmth of heart and generosity of spirit. Wine is art. It?s culture. It?s the essence of civilization and the art of living. - Robert Mondavi
