Or for a party of three, stop by Restoration Wine Bar for a sip of your favorite wine and take a look on their menu to discover your favorite new lunch spot.
There’s just one more place to stop, and it’s just a couple of minutes from downtown Lufkin – Gamer’s Hollow. It’s the perfect place to find gifts for the gamers of all kinds in your life.
“We have a very wide selection of things from generic things like Magic: the Gathering and Yugioh! to niche items like board games and accessories,” General Manager Isaac Barney said.
There’s more to do at Gamer’s Hollow than marking items off your list; you can also bring your family down to play games and make memories during the holiday break and grab a warm cup of coffee or hot cocoa.
