I can't imagine that place being worth the drive to Kerrville alone.

I used to look forward to Friday nights so much back then just because it meant that it was Shakey's night. It was a sad day in San Antonio when they were eventually shut down. It would be great to see that particular pizza place return.

There was a Shakey's Pizza on Austin Hwy. between Eisenhauer and Vandiver.

Default An Attraction for San Antonio?

I've probably mentioned this in the past,but here I go.How about a replica of San Antonio and the Alamo to scale,as it was in 1836.
Just how Tucson Arizona did."OLD TUCSON",I've there and it was great,alot of movies were made there.This would create jobs,and revenue for the city from Tourists.Just thinking out loud.Just try and Imagine it if it were possible.I would like to hear the pros and cons whether you've lived here all your life or moved here.

ok....I'll bite....

I was curious why you would suggest a replica in San Antonio.
Obviously there must be something lacking in the original that
you feel the need for one. Can you elaborate ?
Would it be something similar to Alamo Village @ Brackettville,Tx. ?
I've never heard of "Old Tucson"...

Pros: I like the idea mainly because I would hope that there would be
less restrictions by the guards. Better parking space. Be able to
take photos anywhere . Have reenactments of events .

Cons: Finding or convincing anyone that it's profitable to have a replica
when there is the original already. And having the $$$$ to do it .
It's like me going south & bringing back the flag that the
Texans had at the battle of 1836 & bring it home to where it belongs
instead of it lying in a dungy basement in Mexico.
It ain't gonna happen...
Cheers & here'e hoping I'm wrong...

Sad to say, but every Uno franchise location is absolutely horrible in comparison to the original, family-owned in downtown Chicago. Even the red-headed-step-child Due, also in Chicago, is eons better than what Unos chained out to be. I'd rather see more home grown deep dish in SA.

I'd love something along the lines of Pinkdot (LA). With that idea would come a truly competitive grocery delivery service, something we don't currently have without a fair amount of upcharging.

Milk delivery would be keen. I had that growing up and a lot of cities are going back to glass bottled milk, delivered fresh daily or weekly. Would love cream-top milk again.

I'll second Cafe Express. That place would kill here.
