I wonder how many of today's "Truely American beers" were in business (illegal) during the prohibition years?

If I am not mistaken, I once read somewhere that there was even a local court judge who owned a chain of boozedrug stores, Dopo.......

Could not find any history regarding this judge but I did find this and recommend it to those interested in local history. In the blog entry we discover that the UT mascot, Bevo, got its name from a Busch family prohibition-era beverage.

Sorry, Merovee.....maybe I sometimes deliberately leave-out certain tidbits of info.....


Interesting about BEVO, though. I did not know that.......

Now whip it! Into shape! Shape it up! Get straight! It's not too late! To whip it! Whip it good!

My thought of the day:
Can I please start a "Only in San Antonio" thread...

Man I have a big load (long list ) that I want to drop:
- Car broken down on the left lane shoulder up on a jack with a guy under it fixing it.
- (Today) Car broken down on I-35 by Thousand Oaks on the left lane shoulder ......... facing the wrong way .
- (Last week) Ambulance forced to drive at least 2 miles on the left lane shoulder on I-35 because people wouldn't get out of the way (no wrecks on the highway, just rush hour traffic)

From television:
- (Weekend) Four firefighers injured in fire truck rollover | WOAI.COM: San Antonio News
- (Weekend) Rock-n-Roll Marathon train delay... really? | WOAI.COM: San Antonio News

Random post #79.

I was giving a Katrina evacuee a ride home here in town. He told me about a love spell they used in New Orleans. I told him I read that I had just read a history book and that they used that same spell in ancient Greece. We are all connected regardless of time or space. Of course we all understood karma can be a pain and what is gained through hex can then be lost through vex.
