When I am not wearing boots in Hye, you can often find me wearing running shoes at The Trail at Lady Bird Lake. In fact, with help from some special friends, I founded the Town Lake Trail Foundation back in 2002. Today, the organization is called The Trail Foundation and the Trail is now the Ann and Roy Butler Hike and Bike Trail. Whatever you call it, it’s the heart and soul of Austin and my favorite place to run.
The Trail Foundation continues today to introduce exciting landscaping, architectural, restorative and signage improvements at Lady Bird Lake and is always willing to take your money to make it happen. They are doing God’s work.
To that end, we at Garrison Brothers Distillery are going to see if we can raise a little money for The Trail by giving away some bourbon. I’ll be at one of Austin’s finest bourbon bars, TenOak Bourbon House + Lounge, at 404 Colorado on Thursday, November 15 from 5 – 7 p.m. for an evening of fine bourbon, delicious appetizers and stories about the Trail.
The bourbon is on me and TenOak’s providing the appetizers. Tickets are $25 and it goes to a great cause. Please come join us. Space is limited. Make reservations at The Trail Foundation’s website or click here.
