    Need an escape from the mundane routine?!? Cast away your worries and sail over to Delysia Chocolatier for a nautical inspired chocolate tasting.

    Our Sea salt cranberry hazelnut chocolate truffle showcases a unique twist to a classic with sweet cranberries and crunchy hazelnuts complimenting the pink himalayan sea salt. As you nibble on our Spiced seaweed chocolate truffle, feel the monotony of your daily routine fade away as you experience the crunch of the seaweed surrounded by the tanginess of the soy sauce dark chocolate infused center. Lastly, enjoy the blend of caribbean rum, Patron tequila, lime zest and mint in our Malibu lime mojito chocolate truffle as it whisks you away to breath-taking sunsets.

    Treat yourself to a luxurious indulgence at Delysia Chocolatier with our nautical inspired chocolate tasting.

      Music on the Square, a free summer concert series, returns to “The Most Beautiful Town Square in Texas” in Georgetown, just 25 miles north of Austin. These family-friendly, live music shows run Friday nights from June through August, with the exception of June 7, July 5, and August 2. There’s music for everyone including the Wilson String Band playing country rockabilly, Megatune playing reggae & Motown, Mike Hamilton playing saxophone jazz, and Lexxi Garza performing 80’s & 90’s covers.

      The music begins at 6:30 p.m. and wraps up around 8:30 p.m. (weather permitting). Every first Friday of the month, Georgetown also celebrates First Fridays Downtown, when merchants stay open later for evening shopping. Bring your own blanket, folding chair and snacks (no glass permitted), or check out the charming downtown restaurants and relish a relaxing summer evening.

Through film we can show a range of ages and abilities, challenges and triumphs, (however big or small), that living with autism can bring.
