Easter is over and I'm ready for some Margaritas and some good Tex-Mex! How about you? If you are then you need to find time over the week-end to try a restaurant that has become a downtown staple in our neighboring town of Georgetown. It's a hop, skip and a jump from NW Austin.    DOS SALSAS                                    http://www.dossalsas.com/Dos Salsas has been a family owned and operated Tex-Mex restaurant in Georgetown since 1999.  Owned by the Plata family, they have a tradition of combining delicious food with excellent service creating the kind of family atmosphere diners want.  The food is prepared and served fresh every day with top ingredients and a secret spice or two from owner Memo Plata. When dining at Dos Salsas you can rest assured you will have the best experien...

It's going to be hot..hot..hot in Austin this week-end! How about something casual for dining..no fuss..no muss? School is out but think you’re finished with your education?  Think again...Take a short 15-20 minute ride to Georgetown, and when you leave this destination you will have graduated with honors! You might even have a new Alma Mater!  BURGER UNIVERSITY                   http://burgeruniversity.net/Alan Grimsley had a vision for super fresh hand-made food.  He paired that with Rob May’s desire to have a family-oriented and fun environment. The Lockett Building where Burger University is located provides the character and charm. Combine all that and the 3 pillars of service of Burger University were created: quality, excellence and service.  Burger University is committed to pre...

No matter the weather this weekend (and we are expecting rain, let's see if it materializes), take a short ride to neighboring Georgetown for some delicious home-style Mexican food and check out their Memorial Day celebrations. Thinking margaritas? This is the place you'll want to put on your list for dining out this week-end!     EL MONUMENTO                  http://elmonumentogeorgetown.comMexican traditions are the basis for the architecture of El Monumento; the grounds showcase the plants of rural South Texas and Mexico.  The restaurant is a modern design with 4 separate dining areas – an open kitchen, an interior courtyard, a terrace that overlooks the Blue Hole Lagoon and a dining pavilion with glass walls that overlooks the courtyard.  Texas Monthly says that “when you stroll thr...

This week’s Foodie Friday takes us to neighboring Georgetown, about 30 minutes outside of Austin.  A lovely city with Victorian era downtown storefronts, antique street lights, brick walks lining the shaded downtown streets with more than 180 National Register historic homes and buildings.  It is also the home of the oldest university in Texas, Southwestern University.  And, while you’re visiting Georgetown – I’ve got a great restaurant for you to try. WILDFIRE TEXAS                           http://www.wildfiretexas.comThere are 2 buildings that house the Wildfire constructed in 1920 where the City Hotel used to stand in the late 1890s. The restaurant has received many awards and exceptional reviews.  Southern Living says “Wildfire puts spice in dining”…Time Magazine says “The Wildfire...

Sun City Texas Floor Plans Provided Courtesy of Rugg Realty Sun City Texas has been around for  20 years and during that time, there have been dozens of different floor plans built.  It makes sense when you think about it, that the tastes of buyers change over time and builders need to offer product people want to buy. When buyers look at resale homes they frequently want to see the floor plan. Than can be a little tricky is a home has been out of production for a decade or more,  The  answer however, is really pretty simple. Rugg Realty has assembled a list of virtually all the floor plans ever used and posted them on our web site, Rugg Realty.com.  Floor plans are organized by name in alphabetical order, and include the square footage for reference. The can easily be found clicking th...

"Transfarencysm"  What can Real Estate pros learn from Southwest Airlines Marketing? On a recent flight Southwest Airlines handed out the complimentary beverage and peanuts, along with napkins that read:“Transfarencysm.1. Philosophy created by Southwest Airlines in which customers are treated honestly and fairly, and low fares actually stay low--no unexpected bag fees, change fees or hidden fees. Created and practiced exclusively by Southwest Airlines.”That stuck with me.  The napkin doubled as effective, concise and creative marketing.  So I naturally began to ponder coming up with an equally memorable description of why Rugg Realty provides the best value for services in the Georgetown, TX real estate market.  We have great testimonials and receive an increasing number of referrals fr...

Traditional Italian Trattorias are small, cozy places to eat and I personally love their ambiance. The weather is going to be gorgeous this week-end so why not take a short skip and a jump from Austin to the city of Georgetown and find this gem in the Wolf Ranch Shopping Center! I think you'll be glad you made the effort.    MILANO TRATTORIA                     https://www.milanotrattoria.com/Owner and head chef of Milano Trattoria, John Braga, was born in Brazil and raised in Italy.  His passion for authentic Italian food started at a very young age watching his mother cook.  Eventually he moved to NJ, working his way to sous-chef at some of the finest NJ and NY restaurants.  He has cooked for such celebrities as Lady Bird Johnson, Frank Sinatra, John Travolta, the Dallas Cowboys footb...
