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!!!!
Me and my wife were looking for some place to eat an anniversary lunch/dinner. We got a brochure at our hotel and decided to try Pier 99. We had decided on the fish sandwich dinners before we got there. When we arrived and started to order we were told that fish sandwiches were not served after 4:00pm. This made no sense so we decided to order something else. We actually almost left but we stayed and it turned out to be a good idea to stay. We ordered the fish platter and I willl say it was wonderful. A little slow on the food getting there but really good. I recommend them and will be back. I do suggest they inform customers better on their brochures though.
