    I hope the recent flooding hasn’t affected business! My wife, Megan, and I look forward to closing on our house in Salado in the next couple of weeks. We’ll see you at the Chocolate & Art Festival!

    Hello Christopher! The recent flooding has not affected any businesses. Everyone is open and ready for customers. In fact, Salado Creek looks beautiful and the water is clear and sparkling. The grass is green and the temperatures are cool. Fall is certainly coming early to central Texas.

    We look forward to seeing you. Don’t forget to buy your tickets to “Evening of Chocolate & Wine” and “Fajitas, Folk & Chocolate”. The food has to be ordered ahead of time, so there might not be enough if you don’t buy tickets early.
