Hills and Dales Ice House is one place that’s been in our neighborhood longer’n us. This spot is definitively #HomeinSanAntone:
I walked in yesterday at 101 (that’s degrees F, not hour of the day) planning to capture a little footage of this laid-back, easy-going watering hole on a Sunday. Come to find, a bunch of regulars were taking the ALS Ice Bucket Challenge. So naturally, I filmed them instead!
Here’s Leroy Thompson, Dan Story, Ginger Toy, Brittney Barton and a reluctant Kenny Griffith doing their bit to raise awareness and money to fight the debilitating condition known as Lou Gehrig’s Disease:

Great menus – food and beverage!
I will be back to reshoot soon, but anyway, here you go:
