Crestview Bar Keeps Austin's Christmas Spirit Going Year Round

Grand Old Austin Tour: Lala's Little Nugget

Here at Christmastime, it's interesting to think of Lala's Little Nugget in Crestview - for me, it's been bringing the best parts of the Christmas spirit to life since 1972, and in a way has claimed that spirit and made it an integral part of what "Austin Weird" really means. Ask three Austinites for the story of why Lala's is all Christmas all the time, and you'll likely get three different stories - turns out owner Max Moreland was unable to separate fact from legend himself, but in a place like this, that somehow seems perfectly fine.
