Yes, Austin, if there is a silver lining to all of our upscale urban development, it’s that many of our beloved touchstones, and their signs, still thrive here. ♣

  1. I love these old signs. My favorite, I think, is the Red Eyed Fly; reminds me of an uncle in San Antonio who used to frequent a bar called The Fractured Fox…only he called it the Wounded Coon after a couple of drinks. And speaking of drinks I did find that Lone Star beer has 4 disbributers in California, 3 of them sort of near, so I’ll just wait until my next Texas visit.
