Looking for an end-of-summer getaway? Need just a quick dose of vacay now that we are in the “dog days” of August? Did you miss Bob Schneider when he performed at Blues on the Green?
If you answered “yes” to any of the questions above, you’ll want to know that a mainstay of the local music scene, Bob Schneider, will be closing out the Barton Creek LIVE Summer Music Series at the Omni Barton Creek Resort and Spa on August 28, 2015 at 9pm. Resort guests and club members can enjoy a free concert featuring tracks off of the second volume of Schneider’s latest album, King Kong, plus a host of other favorites. While parents are enjoying the concert, children ages 5 to 14 can enjoy a campfire cookout, which includes fireside games, stories, songs, roasting S’mores, then heading to a movie in the forum. Reservations are requested for the kids’ cookout.
Schneider has been making music in Austin for decades, and along the way he has been recognized for his efforts with a number of Austin Music Awards, including Band of the Year, Musician of the Year, Male Vocalist of the Year and Songwriter of the Year. The second volume of King Kong was released on June 16 of this year.
In addition to being recognized as the #1 golf resort in Texas, the Omni Barton Creek is a favorite for families. Grab the family and enjoy a scavenger hunt so that you can enjoy some quality time together as you work to solve the clues. Your Jordan Spieths-in-training can hone their skills at the miniature golf course, with 18 unique holes to provide unforgettable memories of your stay. As part of its commitment to environmental preservation, the Omni Barton Creek has a Nature Trail which offers resort visitors and guests the opportunity to explore the unique flora and fauna found in the Texas Hill Country. At only a half a mile long, this leisurely self-guided hiking trail allows all ages to enjoy the natural surroundings.
