Mexican President Felipe Calderon has one non-urgent item pending on his agenda in the dying days of his presidency - he wants to change his country's name. Calderon sent a bill to Congress on Thursday to change the constitution to tweak his nation's official name from Estados Unidos Mexicanos, or United States of Mexico, to plain old Mexico - as the country is already known the world over. Mexico was given its name of Estados Unidos Mexicanos in the 19th century, when the country's post-revolutionary founders harked to the United States of America as an example of democracy and freedom to follow. The country's name is derived from the nomadic Mexica tribe that in 1325 settled present-day Mexico City, which later grew into the imperial Aztec capital before succumbing to Spanish conquerors two centuries later.
Calderon staked his presidency on the much larger issue of fighting the country's drug cartels, and about 60,000 people have died in drug violence during his term.
He hands Mexico's reins to president-elect Enrique Pena Nieto of the Institutional Revolutionary Party on Dec.

CAPTAIN JOSE DE URRUTIA DISCOVERED BANDERA PASS IN 1739 WHILE CAMPAIGNING AGAINST THE APACHES WHO HAD BEEN THREATENING SPANISH SETTLEMENTS AT san antonio de BEXAR. THE EARLIEST MAP SHOWING BANDERA AS A PLACE IS AN ANONYMOUS ONE, DATED AROUND 1815 TO 1819, THAT INDICATES AN APACHE VILLAGE JUST OF NORTH OF a€?PUERTA DE LA BANDERA.a€? BANDERA PASS IS INDICATED AS THE TERMINAL POINT OF AN OLD COMANCHE TRAIL FROM NACOGDOCHES. Lehman reported that he was captured by the apache indians in 1870 when he was 11 years old and again later by the comanche indians. Lehman was later taken by the comanches and adopted into their tribe and remained with the comanches until the United states government put them on a reservation in oklahoma. When Lehman was with the Apache tribe, he heard the apaches talk about a battle in 1732 at Bandera Pass. Lehman told of a battle at bandera pass in 1841 which was also recorded in Wikipedia (the online encyclopediC) a€?battle of Bandera Passa€?. Lehman reported that after the battle with the Texas Rangers the comanches named the town of bandera.
The town of bandera, Texas was founded in 1853 by Charles De Montel, john james and John Herndon. In 1856 after Bandera County was created, the first commissioners court was held on January 26th. John James was born in 1819 in Gorleston Suffolk, England while his parents were visiting England. In 1851 James married Annie Milby, daughter of William Polk MILBY of Maryland, who came to indianola, texas in 1840. On August 27, 1839, Herndon married Barbara Makall Wilkinson Calvit, the only daughter of Alexander Calvit, and the heir to the Calvit sugar plantation in Brazoria County, texas. It is believed that montel and james recruited Herndon to help finance the development of the town of Bandera.
In 1852, a venture into the Texas hill country brought explorer and surveyor Charles de montel to an area now called bandera county.
On April 13, the Las Vegas Planning Commission will consider new plans to convert the Piccadilly Pizza space at 322 Fremont to a bar named 322 Tavern. Longtime Fremont Street pizzeria Piccadilly Circus Pizza won’t be around much longer if the city approves plans for a new bar. Recently, under pressure from the casinos operating the Fremont Street Experience, the city has placed significant restrictions on packaged liquor sales and consumption under the canopy. Since Future Restaurant Group announced in April that it was pulling out of Downtown Container Park, I’ve been wondering what will become of The Boozery. The Downtown Project is operating Oak and Ivy along with another new Downtown Container Park bar, The Perch, which will open later this year. Future Restaurant Group has been expanding quickly in the past year, opening Inspire Theater and its soon-to-be three bars, preparing to open Scullery at The Ogden, and continuing to operate Downtown Cocktail Room, The Beat Coffeehouse and Oscar’s. I’d like to think I’ve had some pretty solid alcohol-related adventures in my 25+ years of consumption. Thanks to a recent trip to Downtown Container Park, I now have a decent answer—even if it sounds more adventurous than it really was.
When pressed for details, the inquisitor need not know the shipping container has been converted to a cozy little bar with super friendly bartenders. Visiting The Boozery, you’ll find about eight bar seats and plenty of outdoor patio seating overlooking The Treehouse, the container park’s bad-ass kiddie playground. Having heard that Fremont Street’s newest bar specializes in classic cocktails with a focus on bourbon and scotch, we absolutely had to visit. After two unsuccessful visits finding Wayfarer Bar packed, we returned shortly after the 7 p.m. Both offer amazing cocktails, a warm design and great bartenders. Where DCR excels at complex, original cocktails, Wayfarer is all about classic cocktails. Our bartenders, Trey and Eddie, were friendly and knowledgable, even suggesting we try a Bobby Burns because, after all, it was his birthday that day. Much-needed updates to the site are now underway, with several new pages added this weekend and more refreshes on the way throughout February. The latest Fremont Street bar plans working their way through City Hall come to us from the Downtown Project, the folks behind recent projects including the Downtown Container Park and the what-the-fuckified Gold Spike. DTP proposes turning 1031 Fremont and part of 1023 Fremont into Wheelhouse Neighborhood Bar and Stage, featuring a restaurant and two bars and an outdoor entertainment space between the two buildings.

The shipping containers are stacked, the immersion dome is in place and the fire-breathing mantis is ready to greet you.
Pork and Beans: Offering a variety of sausages and bean dishes, Pork and Beans serves wine by the glass, and bottled, canned and tap beer.
Following the recent national exposure generated by Anthony Bourdain’s live broadcast on CNN a few weeks ago, Atomic Liquors is now open nightly.
Atomic Liquors has quickly become one of our favorite Fremont Street bars for a relaxing drink, so knowing that it’s there for us every night is happy happy news. Mob Bar: One of our favorite downtown bars, Mob Bar is moving from its current location next to Triple George to its new home in the Downtown Grand building, directly across from the Mob Museum late next week.
The Ninth Island: In addition to serving Hawaiian Shave Ice, this small bar on the edge of the casino floor will also offer daiquiris. Downtown Project was reportedly purchasing Krave Massive when the club shut down in August.
The Sun also reports that partial owner Downtown Project is in negotiations to become full owner of the nightclub. Before visiting the recently reopened Atomic Liquors, we hadn’t realized that the area was missing one rather obvious style of watering hole—the neighborhood bar.
At its heart, Atomic Liquors feels like any small-town or neighborhood corner bar in America. Restoring a piece of Las Vegas history made Atomic Liquors’ reopening a noteworthy achievement, but offering an unpretentious, friendly neighborhood feel is what will lead us to return many times. With most of the Fremont East storefronts now occupied, there has been a bit of a lull for new bars on and around Fremont Street.
Nearby, Downtown Grand is scheduled to open sometime in October (exact grand opening date to be announced), adding eight new casino bars to the downtown Las Vegas lineup.
A couple existing Golden Nugget bars are undergoing renovations, according to our friends at Vital Vegas. On March 6, 2013, Fremont Country Club opened, touted by its owners as downtown’s premier live music venue. Pre-opening reports had the venue playing host to local and national acts four or five nights each week. At least three other shows (Escape the Fate, The Neighbourhood and Anberlin) were cancelled or moved to competing venues. Just weeks after Downtown Project bought and shut down Gold Spike, it reopened with a new look and without a hotel or casino.
Oh yeah… board games too, although there was nobody working the desk when we were there. Nearly one year after announcing Krave would be moving from The Strip to Downtown Las Vegas and changing its name to Krave Massive, the first phase of the gay nightclub has finally opened.
After several announced and delayed opening dates over the past six months or so, Atomic Liquors is finally ready to open. Long rumored to be heading to the Fremont East area, Mexi-American bar and grill Nacho Daddy has a future home. Plans call for a square 38-seat bar and dining capacity of 84, including an outdoor patio on 4th.
Nacho Daddy’s existing location in Henderson has a respectable beer menu, a decent happy hour and a variety of mexican fare, burgers, sandwiches and salads. Even though we learned long ago never to be surprised by change in this town, it’s hard not to be bummed when two of our favorite happy hours go the way of the eight-track tape.
The bloodshed hurt his National Action Party's candidate in a presidential election in July. The bar is currently under construction inside the Fremont Street entrance closest to The D. They argue that problems on Fremont stem from visitors getting loaded on cheap booze from area convenience stores. In the next few weeks, the cozy, little bar will be converted from The Boozery to Oak and Ivy. Las Vegas Sun reports that Future Restaurant Group is closing its three container park businesses—Pork & Beans, The Beatnik and The Boozery.
Perhaps FRG grew too fast and needed to refocus, but its quick exit from Downtown Container Park raises concerns about the project. But when a friend recently asked about the most unusual place I ever got liquored up, I couldn’t come up with dick.
He doesn’t need to know it is nestled amongst several other shipping containers selling jewelry, artwork, haircuts and tacos.
I’m going to plead the fifth on any details, shake my head and say something like, “It was pretty crazy. The bar offers a small selection of specialty cocktails, half a dozen beers on tap and a full bar to meet most alcohol-related needs. No, but definitely a worthwhile stop to make your Downtown Container Park visit a happy one.
It means a lot that you find the site a useful resource for your drunken downtown Las Vegas debauchery. 1023 Fremont would include a gift shop, large restrooms (presumably for outdoor events) and a longer, 17-seat L shaped bar. I suggest they carry this whole secret alcohol theme even further and serve beer in canteens and wine in wineskins.

The Boozery is Downtown Container Park’s only full-service bar, offering mixed drinks, wine by the glass, and bottled, canned and tap beer.
No word on the status of that transaction, but today’s developments seem to indicate the deal is dead. In February, the Review Journal reported on issues that appeared to put the club’s opening in jeopardy. It’s a welcoming spot to belly up to the bar, carry on a conversation and have a cold beer or cocktail. That is about to end thanks to several new drinking options opening in the next couple months. In addition to retail shops and several restaurants, it will include at least two bars, The Boozery and Bin 702 wine bar.
The rarely used walkup window, The Bar, is currently walled off with an ad for the upcoming One Bar.
Michael Chugg, a tour booker for major acts including Radiohead and Coldplay was said to be lining up acts for FCC. Following the grand opening show by Louis Prima Jr., the club hosted a sold-out concert by Alkaline Trio (April 27), three shows as part of the Punk Rock Bowling and Music Festival (May 24-26) and little else. Lucero, another band mentioned by employees as one of the scheduled acts for Fremont Country Club, is playing the smaller sister venue, Backstage Bar & Billiards. In the past few months, that club has hosted a variety of known, diverse acts, including Jello Biafra, Murder by Death, Molly Hatchet, Helmet, Fear Factory and Tone Loc.
We really hope not, but based on the first four months the club seems like it’s on a path to becoming the next Azul Tequila. For now, only the lobby and main dance room are open, but country, Latin, EDM and hip hop rooms will follow, along with theaters, a comedy club and, eventually, a swimming pool.
With the assistance of an iPad, he will scour the club, seeking the perfect match based on your criteria. The long-shuttered and legendary boozery will reopen its doors at noon on June 22 after Mayor Goodman cuts the ribbon with a ceremonial nuke. According to documents filed with the city and reported by Eater, the margarita and nacho joint will take over the former Mini-Mart space on 4th Street, around the corner from the Fremont Street Experience canopy and across from Neonopolis. If approved by the commission and the city council, the new bar would include seating for 141 patrons, and a DJ at least two nights a week. Critics suggest the casino operators are more concerned with competition than with curbing problems. With 10 clothing and accessory vendors, four art galleries, nine specialty shops and five home decor outlets—all operating out of converted shipping containers—there’s plenty to check out. Billed as the country’s largest gay nightclub, the Neonopolis bar has only been open in its current location since June. This name, however, is unlikely to stick since Golden Gate has had its own One Bar for the past couple years. Employees even claimed Coldplay had been booked for a rare club show to give the place some early notoriety and name recognition.
With Downtown Project seeking to build a community for Zappos employees, I guess Gold Spike is intended as a place to hang out and blow off some steam. This will be a great place to load up your gut for strategic target yacking from Slotzilla.
El Cortez has not yet introduced any new happy hour specials but confirmed to us that something new is in the works.
Their reaction to plans for 322 Bar & Bakery and any future non-casino bars under the Fremont Street canopy will speak volumes about their motivations.
We quickly found that Wayfarer had captured much of what we love about its sister bar, Downtown Cocktail Room (both are owned by Future Restaurant Group), in a smaller, more subdued package. This development comes as a result of the city of Las Vegas denying tavern licenses to the clubs, according to the Review Journal. Much of the space intended for Krave Massive had still been undergoing renovations and had not opened. Sometimes it seems like Fremont might be getting close to tapping every possible bar concept, but different ideas keep coming to life. The video poker is gone and a new bartop is in place, but otherwise it hasn’t changed much.
Your favorite cocktail waitress will eventually move to Los Angeles because her boyfriend was cast in a sitcom.
Located across from the valet entrance on Jackie Gaughan Plaza, The Wineyard will serve charcuterie and cheese in addition to wine. Plus, it has an exclamation point to really drive home the point that you should have a drink.
With Bin 702 at Downtown Container Park being the only other area bar catering specifically to wine drinkers, The Wineyard seems like a useful addition to Fremont Street. ELY SHOWS THE OLD COMANCHE TRAIL INTERSECTING THE a€?TRAIL TO MISSION SAN SABAa€? BUT DOES NOT SPECIFICALLY SHOW THE PASS.
