LaLa’s little nugget
However, holiday joy does not only apply to November and December. Lala’s little nugget stays festive and spreads Christmas joy all year round.
The bar was founded in 1972 and is filled with generations of Christmas memorabilia. As stated on its website, it is a “North Pole Oasis in Central Texas”.
One of the fun things the bar is doing for the holidays this year is giving people a chance to have their picture printed on a drink. FOX 7 Austin’s Tierra Neubaum gave it a try while searching for Good Day Austin.
