Ace Limos has facilitated comfortable and luxurious transportation around the Austin area for more than 10 years. The drivers are all background checked and tested semi-annually. The fleet—super-stretch Town Car limos with chrome on the outside and complete entertainment systems on the inside, along with polished, jet-black Mercedes with surround sound and extra leg- or stilt-room—is a veritable showroom of luxury vehicles. Put together, the opportunities are plenty for passengers to relax or party as they see fit while being chauffeured to weddings, out-of-town tours, business meetings, and airports.
Since 2007, the Robots-4-U team has been teaching children a program of STEM?science, technology, engineering, and mathematics. Children absorb skills and knowledge through entertaining interactions with instructors, other campers, and robot kits. The camp maintains a 16:1 student to instructor ratio, ensuring children receive the proper amount of individual attention. Campers build robot kits comprising a brain unit and sensory appendages, which replicate seeing, hearing, touching and reading minds. Once the bots are assembled, children enter their creations into racing, dancing, and battle-bot challenges.
Travis Dickey opened Dickey's Barbecue Pit in 1941. To keep things simple but delicious in the early days, he created a minimalistic menu with only seven items such as beef brisket and bottled milk. By the time the '60s rolled up in a Volkswagen van, Dickey's two sons had grown up and taken over the enterprise. Using their father's hickory-smoked recipes, they expanded the business from a single restaurant to a franchise. To this day, each location uses the same tried-and-true barbecue techniques employed by the founder all those years ago. From the original seven items, the menu has grown to include spicy cheddar sausage and complimentary ice cream as well as sides such as macaroni and cheese and jalapeño beans.
