TOAST TO THE AZTEC

Sunday Muse #108 presents to us the
historic Aztec Theater in San Antonio.
A bit of research left me totally enchanted
and longing to visit.  My reverie of the
stories it might tell left me simply writing a
toast.

********************
A toast to the Aztec!  Six stories tall, in its heyday the Aztec dominated the theater district of downtown San Antonio.  Built at the time the River Walk was being established, with its 2 ton chandelier in the lobby and the ornate pillars and Aztec and Mayan sculptures, surely its storied walls are home to the spirits of those who trod the corridors through the years.  Some say it’s cursed, driving the long succession of owners daft.  What stories might emanate from the famed Tequilla Bar, home of late night assignations.  One wonders if the spirit of Montezuma might wander the floors in the dead of night, passing the spirits of young revelers whose fondest memories feature secluded theater seats where romance flourished.  If only the walls could talk!  Here's to the Aztec.  Long may she grace the River Walk!

  1. This is a nice tribute to the Aztec Theater. I too did a short background study reading from Wikipedia. I don't know how we missed knowing it, we probably passed by many times its Riverwalk shops and the "pub".
    My post is ALL fiction, per my note 2), "Everything in the words of this poem is Fiction goaded by my Muse."
    BTW, I noticed you have not posted with Mr. Linky yet?

  8. If walls could talk, what stories would they tell. I had to google this theater as I didn't know much about it. Haunted perhaps.
