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!!!!
I frequently go to Politics because it is in a great location. I hate to admit it but I'm there every weekend. They have live music every Friday night; with great band selections if I might add. There is a very cool, brand new bar on a very put-together patio. The bartender outside is the sweetest girl you will ever meet, and the bartenders, although usually busy, are very kind and professional too. I never get served a drink without a smile too. Politics is the place to be! Oh, it's VERY clean too. It doesn't smell sour like most bars in town.
