Booze at the Alamo
An article in Texas Monthly recently talked about the upcoming change in ownership of the Alamo museum. The Alamo was previously run by Daughters of the Republic of Texas but has changed hands to the General Land Office. Under the GLO, the alcohol would be allowed in certain areas in the compound, but not in the church or fort. Some people have opposed the idea citing that the Alamo complex is sacred and that serving alcohol would be disgraceful. On the other hand, some have said it is like the USS Missouri overlooking Pearl Harbor, on which alcohol is allowed. Personally, as long as the functions themselves are not inappropriate, who cares. It's not a long article and could change our most significant monument in Texas history is viewed, check it out.
