It's definitely an amusement bar! – Lots of new restaurants and venues have been popping up since my San Marcos exit. As fun as they are, they will never have the San Marcos tone I remember and all of the memories I've accumulated in that town. I have no idea how many hours I spent at Showdown: The Amusement Bar in the duration of my college career and that thought is now making me a little uncomfortable so let's focus in on a more happy nostalgia shall we?
I love that there is an upstairs and two back rooms. I love that there is a jukebox that everyone is constantly slinging quarters into. I love that if someone picks a bad song, the bartenders turn it off and make fun of that person in a microphone. I love all the vintage crap hanging from the walls and ceiling. I love the two pool tables old-school arcade game, and Pacman table. And I certainly love the BLOODY MARYS.
This place is awesome, so yes, run, don't walk.
