HISTORICAL HAPPY HOUR - HERITAGE MUSEUM
BROWNSVILLE, July 2010 -The Brownsville Historical Association invites you to relax after work on Friday, July 30, 2010 with Historical Happy Hour! This adult centered event give guests the chance to relax with a drink or two from 5:00pm to 7:00pm while visiting the museum after hours. The newly renovated Heritage Museum sports a working tap in the in-house Crixell Saloon. This program is adult only and is $10.00 for members and $20.00 for non-members. Pre-registration is not needed, but is highly suggested!
This month's Happy Hour is generously sponsored by Jone Liquors of Brownsville, and we will have Texas brewed beers available to taste! In addition to this great mini tour of Texas, Ole Television will be on hand to film parts of Happy Hour for Ole TV, which airs Thursdays on Channel 23.
The original Crixell Saloon was located on Elizabeth and 12th Streets, in the heart of downtown Brownsville. The three brothers - Teofilo, Vincente, and Joseph (Jose) - were successful saloon owners and they eventually expanded to a second location across from Market Square, calling it the White Elephant Saloon. The brothers were involved in local politics, with Teofilo and Vincente both serving as City Commissioners. They continued to work in the saloon business until they were shut down by Prohibition in the 1920s. The recreated Saloon located in the museum is set in 1912 at the original Saloon - the same year Jose was shot and killed by political rivals.
The Brownsville Heritage Complex is located at 1325 E. Washington Street and is managed by the Brownsville Historical Association. For more information on BHA programs and exhibits please call 956-541-5560
