Better Parking? This Bar needs to be in a stripmall that has actual parking!

I never noticed it before, but I don't drive that route daily during the summer. Still, I don't remember seeing anything at that location when I drove past it daily during the school year...

The City has installed traffic lights at Potranco & Fillmore (which you've probably noticed) and right now they've got them flashing so they will be noticed. That intersection has an occasional major accident every now and then but when those lights go "live" it'll be a regular carmaggedon. Some people in San Antonio have a real hard time stopping for red lights. I say this because the next intersection at Clover Creek has major accidents about twice a month and it has traffic lights. So...if you travel through those intersections on a regular basis be careful.

RainMan,
Don't feel bad...I drive by there every day and didn't notice it until recently. I don't have a problem with microtel inn itself. What I am worried about is the "weekly renters" that will linger around there, not the quick business trip or quick vacationer.

I noticed that today. Wait until school starts. I go Military and completely avoid Potranco in the mornings and after work. Yuck!
