At the carnival you see men hitting on women who are pushing a stroller, and all your ashtrays at home say PIZZA Hut on them. SAN ANTO HOLMES!!

No far down West Ave is another bar, called the Texan....that place has not changed in the past 30 years(maybe more?). Anyone know how long that has been around? That always looked like the type of bar that you could get your throat cut ear to ear for saying the wrong thing.
Well.. I'm 41 and I remember going to the Texan with my grandfather when I was a young kid. I would sit at the bar with him while he had a beer.

Primo are you talking about the Outdoorsman?
Across from Columbia.

The Texan changes attitude with owner changes.
Been there as long as I can remember the area,
which would be back to about 1963.

Had to highlight a few of your recollections Blanco Joe.

I took my wife to Captain Jim's on our first date. It was about 15 years past it's prime by then though.

That El Rancho was my first taste of restaurant cooking and I still remember their salsa and chips with fondness.

I am too young to have listened to Science Fiction Theater, but I have found the podcasts of them on Itunes and Tales of the Texas Rangers and Boston Blackie are two of my favorite radio shows.

Yes that was the name. If I remember correctly , I believe they had a big blue marlin on a sign or painted on the place?

I wonder how many bars have continuously operated for 30 years + and are still open? The Esquire is obvious. Mid-night Rodeo has been around almost that long. Casbeers? Hills and Dales?
