I was too young to go to the real ice house where men drank beer and played dominoes and where curb service was supplied. We went to something that looked for all intents and purposes like a convenience store. But just like Beavis and Butthead (who seem to be modeled on me and my friends) we hung around what we called the ice house, looking for trouble and often finding it. I saw a nice article a couple of years ago in a San Antonio newspaper about famous neighborhood ice houses. They looked like throwbacks to an earlier, more idyllic time.
