Hola & Aloha

The Barwalk

Have you seen the movie Giant? If so, you might recognize this painting. 😉

From the Menger we went to a bar named Moses Rose’s, after the only man who chose to leave the besieged Alamo and on our way there we passed the Emily Morgan another historic hotel named after a figure critical to the Texas Revolution.

From there we headed to the Buckhorn Saloon which was established by 17 year old Albert Friedrich in 1881.

We ended our tour at a well known downtown establishment that holds a special place in my heart because my parents went on a date here. 😉

I always learn something new from Emzy, having someone who cares deeply about the city show off and discuss the history of some of its oldest gems, is truly an enchanting experience; I would definitely recommend this tour to anyone interested in learning more about the city, tourist or native. (As I mentioned previously you can find more information on booking a tour at http://www.sabarwlk.com.) On the way back to our car we passed by the Alamo again and another beautiful building downtown the Scottish Rite Cathedral. Hope you enjoyed a brief glimpse into some of the beauty that is San Antonio.
