Another First Friday Fun Evening in Downtown Bryan

By
Real Estate Agent with BCR Realtors 262359

This past Friday was the monthly First Friday event in ever "changing for the better " downtown Bryan, Texas.  My wife and I joined fiends for dinner at the River Bridge Restaurant and it was as good as the last time we dined there! They have a good variety of steak, fish, and burgers.....But what I really like are those good old fashioned homemade southern style  greasy French Fries. You know the kind...They taste like a real potato and not salty slivers of cardboard!

Then we took a walk to.... walk off the fries and visited all the shops that stay open late on First Friday. Neat little antique shops, a handmade glass jewelry shop, a coffee house, and an assortment of other interesting businesses. I notice the old City Barber shop is still open and has a Barbers pole out front! I imagine it has been almost 50 years since I actually had a haircut there. I had a flat top haircut back then. They also used to have a shoe shine man that really put on a show   for a 25 cent shine. He would pop that shine rag to a "Beat" He also had a trick where he would put wax on shoes then light them with lighter fluid to melt the wax in and buff to a "spit shine." Which was necessary for black  "Sunday Shoes" in the late 50's. 

This is what I like so much about the new downtown Bryan. They actually have preserved some of the "old."

Hi Trey... I love evenings like the one you describe.  They almost transport you back to a simpler time.

Trey, I can not go past a good "French Fries" I am addicted. I could skip a meal and just live off FF's sounds like a great place.:))
