About the photo How much longer can Pete’s Bar hang on? It’s tiny, the beer is cheap and ice cold and the wolves are at the door.
It’s only been a few years ago but used to be you could go east of the freeway and step back into 1950’s Austin and have the time of your life.
The cantinas were bumping with hard working Mexican cats swigging ice cold bottles of Bud Light and dancing with “house girls” in skin tight Corona beer dresses.
You paid 5 bucks for a bottle of beer and chose from a bevy of girls lined up against the wall. Presumably the girl you chose got a little cut from the overpriced beer and you got your dance.
Whatever else happened was up to you.
Those days are long gone.
Go by Pete’s Bar tonight and have a cold one.
