The Bank gets a new sign. Hand made by Bob Morris and his crew.  Bob built the achways into Old Town and many other incredible buildings and other wonderful things that visitors look at everyday without realizing they are looking at the work of a Master.

 The Outdoor Patio Bar was added in March of 2008 to accomodate the full liquor license.  This bar was hand made in Mexico and adds a definite feel of actually being in Mexico.  Enjoy a Margarita, Pina Colada or any number of refreshing drinks at the outdoor patio bar.
