Journeys of Discovery: Lubbock rocks with arts, dining, wine and live music scene

Join Visit Lubbock's McKenna Dowdle and Lacie Freelen as they take us on an audio tour of cool things to do and see in Lubbock. Journeys associate producer Jennifer Simonson also visits with Arnis Robbins, owner of Evie Mae’s Pit Barbeque—rated as one of top ten barbeque joints in the state of Texas.

We’ll explore Lubbock’s vibrant Arts District at the Charles Adams Studio Project, followed by a visit with the winemaker and the sommelier at trendy Berklee Hill winery and diner at The Kress in the heart of downtown.

The new 2,200 seat Buddy Holly Hall of Performing Arts & Sciences is just weeks from completion and it will be a game changer for future world-class live performances in Lubbock. We’ll stop in for a hard-hat tour at the $154 million, 220,000 square-foot facility with Tim Collins, Lubbock Entertainment/Performing Arts Association’s board chairman.

Intro music is Buddy Holly's "That'll Be the Day." Underbed/bridge music performed by award-winning Texas Hill Country musician John Arthur Martinez.
