Local talent took to the proposal with enthusiasm:

The merchandise opportunities are unbelievable.

"Hey baby, you need that punched?"


Our own city council would be well advised to look at this as an opportunity to co-market with a name change of our own: “Every trip to Pound Town starts in Sausage City!”


A GoFundMe page looking to raise money for the absolutely real “Friends of the Pound House” accompanied the proposal, so we’re thinking it might have been a stunt, which is ok by us. Still, the thought of taking a ride to Pound Town is mighty amusing.

Go Outside

There’s stuff to do! First, head over to Gruene Lake Village every Saturday from 9a to 3p for McNamera’s Farmers Market! It’s both dog and kid friendly, and you can stock up on your hot sauce, baked goods, and gourmet dog treats for the week all while enjoying beautiful Gruene Lake Village!

You know, Gruene Lake Village, where Kora Kora Coffee and the Gruene Door Restaurant are, at the corner of Gruene Lake Dr and World Famous Gruene Rd.


THEN, make plans to head out to Riley’s Tavern from 4 to 7 on April 6 for their annual Crawfish Boil featuring Jean-Pierre and the Zydeco Angels! Fifteen bucks a plate and you: Can’t. Beat. That.
