Latest San Marcos, Texas, weather

KnD’s Resale N More hosted Root Cellar beer last Friday night during the Brew Hop. If you are looking for upscale pre-owned clothing, Della Lucio and her daughter, Kristan Alvarez, are who you need to visit at their boutique located on North LBJ Drive.

Seamus Dauter and Martha Ash were all smiles after a taste of Seguin Brewing Co., beer that was poured for them by Adam Kinyicky from Seguin. The Seguin brew was being poured at Junk in the Truck located on LBJ Street during the Brew Hop that took place Friday night in downtown San Marcos.

The Stellar Cafe was hopping but still found time to pass out beer samples. Danielle Garcia is shown serving Michael and Yvonne Richards on Friday night during the Brew Hop that is the latest addition to Swing on the Square in downtown San Marcos.

KurtMen on LBJ Drive was a wonderfully surprising stop during Friday’s Brew Hop. Kristy Kurtz, right, opened her store Dec. 15 after wholesaling her handbags, belts and accessories. KurtMen products are sold throughout the U.S. and Canada, but KurtMen decided they wanted a shop close to home and chose San Marcos. Kristy chose the name, KurtMen, because it combined her and her husband’s last names, Kurtz and Mendoza. Left, Franklin Murrah represents Middleton Brewing.

Good times at Brew Hop

Dear Abby 4/5/16

Co-worker’s tempting offer could have disastrous results

DEAR ABBY: Last week one of my associates asked me out for drinks. I have been working with him for the same length of time that I have been married. I know he’s interested because he has been texting me about unrelated work things and is always flirting.

Exploring Nature with Jerry Hall: Birding festival in Galveston

One of my favorite birding festivals will be held April 14-17 in Galveston.  
It’s called FeatherFest, and this will be the 14th annual edition.
Spring migration will be underway, and more than 200 bird species are possible on trips to the beach, bay, Bolivar Flats, High Island and other area hotspots.  Expect to see egrets and plovers, sandpipers and godwits, plus a wide assortment of warblers at Boy Scout Woods and ubiquitous laughing gulls everywhere.
