‘Lu’ and Ken Wusterhausen, owners of Ingleside on the Bay’s ‘Sunset Hideaway’, retired to Ingleside from the Austin area and looked for ‘something to do’ that was also fun. The seaside business in Bahia Marina will close for the first time this winter and re-open next spring. Ingleside Index

Ken Wusterhausen built his own smokehouse onto the ‘Hideaway’ where he uses coastal oak to cook meats like these briskets for a full 24-hours. He shared that his secret recipe BBQ sauce is so popular, he and his wife are negotiating with the H-E-B grocery chain to start selling it. Ingleside Index

A sample of the many BBQ standards the Wusterhausen’s offer at ‘Sunset Hideaway’ include baby back ribs, chicken, or brisket. The first Thursday of each month has also become ‘meatloaf’ night and their homemade offering sells out quickly. Ingleside Index

Besides the food, patrons can’t get over the incredible vistas of their waterfront location at the end of Bayshore Drive. As night comes, the seaside venue is all lit up as are many parts of the coastline along Ingleside Cove and the La Quinta Channel. Ingleside Index

Husband and wife team love their ‘getaway’ after retiring

They don’t have to work, but they do. In what was once a dock shop, supplying local boaters and offering very little in the range of food options, retirees Luhannah (everyone calls her ‘Lu’) and Ken Wusterhausen opened ‘Sunset Hideaway’ in January 2020, what may be Ingleside on the Bay’s best kept secret smack dab on the edge of Ingleside Cove and the La Quinta Channel.

On the corner of Avenue B and 4th street

On the corner of Avenue B and 4th street in Ingleside, you won’t miss the spectacular display of homemade Christmas decorations. The creator of these unique decorations is William Holmes, a 77-year-old ingleside resident, who has been decorating and adding to his yard for more than 40 years. However, all good things must come to an end. Over the years, Holmes has become older and frail, and it has been difficult to decorate his yard. He has decided this year to be his last year setting up his display. Sometime during this holiday season, you can stop and admire the creativity and hard work Holmes has put into his decorations.

Every little bit helps:

Every little bit helps: A trailer sits outside Ingleside on the Bay City Hall where anyone can drop off aluminum cans that are taken to a recycling center in Gregory. Money collected is used to supplement the budget for the city’s volunteer fire department. Please, no glass bottles or other debris, though. Funds help pay for supplies and materials used by the department and the can drive is now in its 25th year. Residents of IOB also have the option to add financial contributions each time they receive their water bill. Look for the boxes to check off if you would like to donate to the fire department or Tri-County EMS that provides emergency medical services, and the amount you wish to give. Ingleside Index

Santa’s helpers:

Santa’s helpers: With the elves working overtime this time of year, Ingleside on the Bay’s Parks and Recreation Department needs your help to supply toys to some needy children for Christmas. These are just some of the donations left inside City Hall, destined for the CASA program in San Patricio County. You can drop off an unwrapped toy for a little boy, girl, or teenager Monday through Friday between the hours of 9 a.m. and 1 p.m. Ingleside Index
