Restaurant
“This place is a little hidden in the shopping center by Home Goods, but it has a delicious and casual "california flair" about it. They have homemade gelatto that you can order from the sidewalk without actually going in the restaurant. Lots of great wines and the wood-fired avacado on the appetizer menu is so good!”

Baseball Stadium
“The $24 million Olsen Field at Blue Bell Park opened in February 2012 and gave the Texas A&M Baseball program one of the country's crown jewels of collegiate stadiums to call home. Fans are closer to the action than ever before because designers decreased the distance between home plate and the first seating row. Lawn seating were added along the first- and third-base lines, allowing fans to watch the game from these elevated grassy knolls or take the traditional route of chair seating.”
