My next mission, after seeing the Alamo at night, was going to Esquire Tavern on the San Antonio Riverwalk for deep-fried pickles. I had heard about frickles, but had never partook. It was time to change that.

Though I went to this establishment solely for the dill delicacy, what I also got was a stinky pig.

Established in 1933, this speakeasy is the oldest bar on the Riverwalk. They also claim to have the longest bar in Texas and, at 100 feet, I wasn’t going to argue.
