Sunday--Let It Rain
Pop over to Sweetish Hill Bakery for melt-in-your-mouth blueberry croissants, or make reservations for the Sunday gospel brunch at Stubb's Bar-B-Q. Cap off your visit with a trip to the new Bob Bullock Texas State History Museum. Don't miss the Texas Spirit Theater, where the special effects include imaginary grasshoppers and a storm that really rains on the audience. It's all part of the fun of being a Texan--even if it's just for the weekend.
