Midnight at the Oasis

I was saddened to learn about the fire at The Oasis on Lake Travis, outside Round Rock. Having lived in the Greater Round Rock Metropolitan Area for 13 years I had occassion to go there once or twice. It was a special place. I wish them luck in rebuilding.

My last trip to The Oasis was in the summer of 1988. I was there with a gorgeous blonde and talk turned to our respective foibles of dating while in high school. She was disgusted that I had dated a freshman during my senior year. That was just too much of an age difference! Unfortunately, a quick check of the calendar revealed that my current date would have been in the 8th grade at that time.

We've been married for 15 years now.

I went to The Oasis once, during a business meeting in Austin, several years ago. Odd thing is that we had to leave because a thunderstorm made it a bit dicey .. and then I heard the place may have caught fire in 2005 due to a lightning strike. Hmmm.

Yeah, it was a great terraced view of the area. Not quite the same as the ScooterBurgers(tm) on Lake Travis (?) but they cater to different crowds. And there weren't any 3-legged dogs.
