My daughter Zoe was born premature at Christus Sphon Hospital 4 days ago. Her mother was incarcerated at the Nueces County Jail when she went into labor and returnd to the jail 2 days after she delivered. I drove from houston to be with our daughter and am here at her bedside now. The wonderful social worker contacted the Ronald McDonald House on my behalf after hearing about our family's situation. Waking up in my truck after a long night I received a call from the soicial worker saying that the Ronald McDonald House Charity had offered me their home for at least the next 5 days. I got to the home and received a very warm welcome and was taken to a comfortable room with an even more comfortable bed where I got some much needed rest after a hot shower. There was food avaliable to myself and all the families in a large communal kitchen. Everything was clean and kept so by all the families and a staff of workers. Every family at the home is there supporting a very sick child fighting for his or her life. This charity makes it possible for these families to do so, myself included. I dont know what I would do without them. My little four pound fighter is in the NIC Unit fighting to live. The wonderful doctors and nurses here at Christus Sphon South are helping her live and thanks to the Ronald McDonald Charity House I am able to be here and bear witness to another of Gods Miracles. If you are able I urge you to donate to this charity so it can continue to help these brave children and their families. Sincerely, Zoe's Daddy
My wife and I are from Leakey and we came to Corpus Christi for vacation. We heard Politics was a good bar so we went on Friday the 22nd of March. There was a live band playing but the bar was not busy. We are assuming the bartenders are entry level. We did not receive help for 20 minutes from any of the 3 or 4 bartenders ( I do not remember how many exactly) As my wife and I were leaving the waitress (I assumed she heard us chatting) approached us and introduced herself and asked us if everything was okay and if we ever got served drinks. We told her no and were considering leaving. She told us if we stuck around she would get our drinks quickly and buy our first round. We took her up on the offer, sure enough, our drinks arrived in less than two minutes! Being as sweet of a girl as she was, continued to help us for the rest of the night. She was the only waitress tonight she said in conversation. It shocked me and my wife how quickly that tiny girl could move! Anyways we ended up staying late and enjoyed our night and the band. We left happy and my wallet empty with a large gratuity to the waitress. I wish we remembered her name. On our next vacation we will be coming back to Politics for a good time.
I have recently gone to House of Rock on Wednesdays and I have to admit I had so much fun. The first wednesday that I went I took my cousin with me and she just turned 21, had her first drink at house of rock. They had a beer pong tournment and needed an extra player so my cousin played. We were there all night the crowd was cool and the beer was great only 2.50 for any beer that they have available. The next wednesday that we went it was for beer school that was awesome too. Free beer and I found one that I liked that I had never even heard of before. It was really cool. House of Rock has definitly put a new twist to hump day. Im so excited to go see the Jimi Hendrix tribute tonight!!! Very laid back place love it!!!!
