http://www.waxys.com/

The pub was established in March 2006 on the ground floor of the elaborate San Antonio Loan and Trust Building, in the heart of San  Antonio’s historic and renowned Riverwalk.

The building, designed by G. Voorhees, was built in 1901-1903. It was built to house San Antonio’s first trust company, which was founded by prominent businessman George Brackenridge in 1892 and was moved into this building upon its completion in 1903.
OUR PUB
The pub was built at the Truwood Joinery Shop in County Monaghan, Ireland. Irish craftsmen used painstaking care and attention to every detail when designing and building the pub. Upon its completion, it was very carefully crated and shipped to the port of Galveston.

The pubs arrival in Galveston was unexpectedly delayed when Hurricane Rita threatened the city of Galveston and mandatory evacuations were ordered. Since the container ship carrying the pub was well on it’s way, there was no other choice but for the ship [...]

Dick’s Last Resort

www.dickslastresort.com

 

Dick’s Last Resort is a small bar and restaurant chain in the United States, known for its intentional employment of an obnoxious staff. The name consists of seven restaurants, including one near Petco Park, California and another in Las Vegas. The restaurant, which uses picnic-style tables and no tablecloths, has its origins in the owners’ original opening of a “fine-dining” establishment. The establishment was a failure, which resulted in bankruptcy. Rather than continue with the upscale restaurant motif, the owners retooled their efforts and decided to “go sloppy”.The end result was a success, leading to the creation of six additional locations.
