Anyway....it was a sink hole type gorge in one place that was famous for the jumping and diving. We would walk along the edge and cross over the top of the falls and make our way down a trail to the river below. Lots of big flat boulders to lay out a towel and jump in or just sun on.
My father went to Edge Falls many times. My mother never allowed me to go because it "was too dangerous". I recall my father sleeping on the living room couch with a blistering poison ivy rash over half his body. He was particularly sensitive to poison ivy.

hmmm....was there another location that I didn't know about? The Bun N Barrel on Austin Highway is still there and still going fairly strong. Still looks exactly the same with a few minor changes.

Just a few blocks from there was a place called "The Bean Pot"....I don't remember much about it....but my parents frequented that place.

Rigas could be confusing an old Jim's Frontier with the Bun N Barrel. I liked the Bean Pot!! Two huge cast irons pots of beans..hot or not. Deli style
sandwiches. I still want the horse off the old Mobil (or Conoco) at the corner of Broadway and Austin Hwy.

Mobil...Mercury! Yes...he's highly coveted. I'm sure there would be a lynch mob in 2.5 seconds if anyone messed with it~


I ran across an ad in the San Antonio Express the other day for the Kit Kat Club on Fred Rd in the 40's. It looked like a nice dinner/dance club. It was about the 3600 block. There was a little drawing of the building and it looked like it was in the deco district. They advertised dinner and dancing from 4pm to MIDNIGHT on SUNDAY!!!! Wow...things were hoppin' back then!

Mobil of course ! Don't know why all of a sudden it didn't sound right. Wife's brother tried to swing a deal for it many years ago. I'm not touching it!! Seems like a club by the same name has been around in recent years. You say things were hoppin' back then..!! I think you're right, I've heard of several places where they used to dance on the roofs.Yee Ha!!

Question for someone does anybody remember all the locations of the san antonio savings and travis savings and loan branches? Wondering if anyone has a directory from the early 80's.
