A world on the brink of war. A shocking murder carried out in a train car. A relentless hacker determined to rob civilians of billions. These are just a few of the scenarios you may encounter at Escapology in Rockwall. The escape-the-room gaming center resides within Shenaniganz, offering an adrenaline-pumping alternative to go karts and laser tag.

You're aboard a U.S. Navy submarine that has suddenly lost power, and you'll only make it back to dry land by solving a series of cryptic clues. Come to Rockwall's Escapology to experience the thrill of escaping a sinking submarine, shutting down a would-be terrorist, or any of its other adrenaline-inducing adventures.

Stock Up on Fresh Food at the Rockwall Farmers’ Market

September 7, 2017 3:01 pm

Summer may be coming to a close in a few short weeks, but the Rockwall Farmers' Market is keeping farm-to-table produce coming until the end of September. Every Saturday morning from 8 a.m. to noon, the Historic Downtown Square of Rockwall transforms into a fresh-air market where city-dwellers have direct access to fruits, veggies, meats, and other items cultivated by local purveyors.

More than 30 vendors come to the market each week, so there's always a large and varied selection. Grab grass-fed meats or farm-fresh eggs from one vendor; check out a colorful array of fruits and veggies from another. Pick up prepared foods like jam, pasta, and tamales. Or simply swing by to enjoy the live music that each Saturday morning promises. The market's last day of the season will be Saturday, September 30th.

Shop, Win Prizes, and Enjoy Refreshments at Downtown Rockwall Night Owls Shop Late Til’ 8

September 5, 2017 2:00 pm

When Rockwall residents asked for more flexible business hours, the boutiques and shops of downtown Rockwall listened. In October of 2013, the first Downtown Rockwall Night Owls Shop Late Til’ 8 unfolded, during which local shops stayed open until 8 p.m. so that customers could make it after work or dinner. The initial night was such a success that the tradition has continued once a month.

The next Night Owl event is scheduled for Monday, September 14th from 6 to 8 p.m. The extended hours are honored at many of the downtown Rockwall shops, and they're just a part of the appeal. The shops that stay open also offer door prizes, refreshments, and often special sales. Just look for the owl outside the door of a business that signifies it's participating in the event.
