It’s currently an antiques and salvage business, and the $560,000 price tag includes all the inventory inside the store front (except the inventory in the rented-out booths), which is quite a lot:
In addition to the storefront, there’s a recently remodeled private space that can be used as a bed and breakfast, living space or vacation home. According to Moxie Realty Group, the current owners will even consider selling the furnishings inside.
As if that’s not enough for you, there’s more than half an acre of land just waiting to be developed or used as parking.
Protip: If you’re going to be a thief, maybe don’t brag about it on the internet.
That’s the lesson one Texas teenager learned this week when his tweet about “free donuts” at H-E-B stores caught the attention of thousands on Twitter.
“FREE DONUTS AT ANY HEB Just walk into the donut section and grab a free donut of any choice but must be eaten inside and away from employees,” the teen’s now-deleted tweet read, according to the San Antonio Express-News.
According to the Express-News, the teenager grabs a “free” doughnut every time he stops by an H-E-B Plus. But needless to say, H-E-B isn’t giving away any free doughnuts, a spokesperson told the Express-News. The teenager’s sticky fingers are the only reason he got a “free” treat—so maybe don’t try this at your neighborhood H-E-B.
A black San Antonio-based event planner is speaking out against the racial undertones connected with plantation weddings.
According to ATTN, Jordan A. Maney is the owner and founder of All the Days Event Company in San Antonio. Maney said she received a call from a bride recently asking her to plan a wedding at Kendall Plantation in Boerne, just outside of San Antonio. ATTN reports it’s unclear if Kendall Plantation was the former home of slaves, but the venue’s website states it was built “just for weddings” in 2011.
ATTN excerpted a few lines from the website’s “about us” section, some of which appears to have been removed since the article’s publication.
“The name Kendall Plantation represents the county in which it rests (Kendall) and the architecture of a Southern antebellum home,” the website now reads, without mention of the land’s former use as “a plantation for growing cotton and other crops.”
The website still goes on to state that the venue is modeled after “true Southern Louisiana Plantation homes” and says, “The history of the land has been preserved, as we have kept original items used to work the ranch centuries ago; they are on display in unique spots along the property.”
Maney told ATTN having a wedding at a former plantation was like “having a wedding at a grave-site,” saying she didn’t understand why these aspects of history are “glamorized.”
“In the state of Texas we do have a Confederate history day, and it’s still very well practiced,” Maney told ATTN. “The idea of Southern pride tied to the Civil War is still around, but I don’t know why it gets glamorized and fantasized about.”
After Maney received the phone call from the couple requesting the wedding at Kendall Plantation, she wrote on Facebook (in a post that is now not available on her page), “DON’T CALL MY BLACK-OWNED BUSINESS ASKING ME TO PLAN YOUR PLANTATION WEDDING.” In the comments, she later detailed how the conversation with the bride unfolded, according to a screenshot captured by ATTN.
ATTN says it has reached out to Kendall Plantation for comment, but has not yet heard back. However, Kendall Plantation posted the following photo on their Instagram on Tuesday, clarifying the venue was built “from the ground up exclusively for weddings.”
If you’ve ever wished you could live in a Renaissance fair year-round and you have a spare $2,285,000, then pull out your checkbook so you can meander through beautiful secret gardens filled with stone paths, rock walls and lush greenery.
“What is it about a small town that hooks us? Whether they’re waterfront or mountaintop, the great ones all have a few things in common: a thriving downtown with locally owned restaurants, shops, and galleries; a touch of the artsy; loads of character; friendly locals; and, of course, a beautiful location,” the magazine wrote.
It’s easy to see why: The Hill Country town is full of beautiful scenery, and thanks to its ever-growing number of wineries, great food and plenty of bed and breakfasts and guest houses with character (like Starry’s Studio), it’s great for a day trip or a weekend getaway. Visitors can hike Enchanted Rock, enjoy authentic German food and check out the shops in the historic downtown district.
It was gloomy and 40 degrees out Sunday morning, but that didn’t stop people from hitting the surf in Austin.
If you think “surfing” and “Austin” don’t quite go together, well, you’re right, but it’s South by Southwest, which means thinks like geography and weather don’t matter. TNT installed a pop-up beach at Fourth Street and Congress Avenue to promote its show “Animal Kingdom,” which is about a Southern California crime family.
And before you get all “Don’t California my Austin” or whatever, just peep these GIFs of pro FlowRider surfer Sean Silveira and actor Finn Cole (you may know him from Netflix’s “Peaky Blinders”) hitting the waves.
In today’s edition of “Celebrities: They’re just like us!” I present to you Fred Armisen eating Mighty Cone at a surf park in the middle of downtown Austin, which is a sentence I could only type if it was South by Southwest — oh hey, turns out it is.
Anyway, the “Portlandia” star and “Saturday Night Live” veteran was spotted chatting with folks at the Animal Kingdom installation on Fourth Street and Congress Avenue on Sunday while enjoying fare from one of Austin’s most beloved food trucks, Mighty Cone.
It’s hard to tell what he’s eating, but it looks like it could be french fries. Solid choice, but has nobody told Fred how good the hot and crunchy cones are? I mean, you’ve got chicken, you’ve got avocado, you’ve got mango-jalapeno slaw, you’ve got ancho sauce … if anybody sees Fred, advise him to go with the cone next time.
Have you always wanted to be more like Beyonce? Some South by Southwest attendees got the chance Sunday at the Mashable House, which had a backdrop nearly identical to the one in Queen Bey’s now-iconic pregnancy reveal (yeah, she’s having twins, we still can’t get over it).
Update: The giveaway is now closed. Winners have been notified.
