I have found the most perfect date place! Depending on where you live it is a bit of a drive but it is totally worth it! The place is called Ancient Ovens. It is located in the very small very quaint town of Saint Jo, TX. This gem of a place is outside Saint Jo about 10 miles.
The first part of the date is simply the beautiful drive. The drive shows off some of Texas’ beautiful country side. In the fall the the drive is surrounded by giant trees with their leaves turning the most beautiful reds, yellows, and browns.
The second part of the date is going to the wineries because Ancient Ovens is BYOB. You have two wineries to choose from the Blue Ostrich or Arch. Before you even get to dinner drop by these places for a wine tasting and to take home the perfect compliment to your dinner.
The last and best part is dinner at Ancient Ovens. This is a four course meal set out on the back porch of a ranch that over looks a draw. You sit outside in lawn furniture surrounded by lights, stars, and the peaceful sounds of the country. The first course is a spinach cheese dip served with homemade brick oven cooked sourdough bread, followed by cream cheese filled wontons, then for the main course brick oven pizza all you can eat! You can go back time after time. For dessert you get a dessert pizza that is to die for.
The whole meal is timed and actually takes about 2 hours. If you are in a hurry this is not the place for you. This place is for the person who likes to slow down and really enjoy the simple things in life.
If you want to get to know someone I highly recommend this date place. I promise you will not be disappointed!
As a top golf first timer I wasn’t sure what to expect. When we got there the place was way bigger than I thought it would be. After checking in, we found out that we had to wait a while to we found one of the many bars and ordered food and drinks. While you are waiting there are so many different things you can do. They have horse shoe pits, corn hole boards, giant connect four, and extreme jinga.
Once we got our bay the real fun started. No one in our group had much experience with golfing so it was quite entertaining watching everyone whiff on at least one to two swings. Once we got warmed up the points started racking up and things got really competitive.
This was when things turned from good to bad. On a swing that was supposed to send my ball to the furthest hole I felt something pull and pop, which was the beginning of my chiropractic experience.
After working through the pain for a day I decided it was time to visit a chiropractor. This was the best decision! After one appointment I was beginning to feel back to normal again. The Dr. and staff really made my visit enjoyable and easy. I am already planning my vengeance on my friends for our next top golf outing. If you aren’t first you are last.
So I really didn’t know what to expect when we attended German Fest for the first time. After driving through the small town of Muenster, Tx for 10 min we finally found a place to park. As we watched someone stumbling from the entrance at 10 o’clock in the morning I knew it was going to be an awesome time.
There were so many different things to see. They had a kids section with rides, games and face painting. A “peddlers” section filled with everything you could imagine from toys to clothes to decor. Then there was the food. It was some of the best German food you can find as well as enough beer and alcohol to keep your whole day going.
Later in the afternoon they had several local bands come followed by one big well known artist. It was one big outdoor concert with dancing and singing. People of all ages were hanging out, socializing, and dancing like fools the whole night .
Who would have thought you could fit ten thousand people into a town that only has a population of one thousand and it be a night you wouldn’t forget. Just watch out for the cops they are always watching.
Check out a few of these West Texas wedding venues. There are many awesome wedding venues nestled in the West Texas country side. These are few of the places I have enjoyed out of the last few weddings I have been to. Granted there are probably fancier upper crust places out there but that not really my style. I am all about the places that facilitate a great time with great memories. A few good looking pictures are bad either.
Caprock Winery- It doesn’t get much better than this beautiful winery for a wedding. Space is limited but it is an amazing place to get hitched. hate have some regulation s about alcohol but they do allow it. Check out there website for mor information.
Ransom Canyon- While West Texas is limited on water, Ransom Canyon can be an awesome destination for a killer outdoor wedding. Space is just short of unlimited depending the place of the ceremony. The only catch is for certain places you have to have a relative and/or know somebody that has a place to rent the primo spots
Old County Line Grill. Nestled in the headwaters of the Brazos River. This place has to be a top consideration for any West Texas wedding. This place would be a perfect destination for a combination indoor and outdoor wedding. It has a small water feature and a beautiful glass build that makes a perfect place to have an awesome reception. The peacocks running around add the perfect ambiance to the location. Easy to access and only a few minutes form town depending on the transportation and other extra curricular activities.
HillCrest Country Club- Not a bad place for a reception but a little small for an indoor wedding. If you are willing to brave the weather and chance it on an outdoor wedding, it could be awesome. Killer view….. if you are looking for a sunset backdrop for an awesome wedding album, this is the place for you. Not to bad on the pocket book either.
Don’t forget about the Baker Building either. I haven;t been there in a few years but it was good the last round. Big and open but I am pretty sure you have to book quite a ways out.
Well thats all I have for know. Just a few suggestions out of the last few I have been to. Hope it helps
