We want to reach out to a bar in EVERY Texas House & Senate district to spread the word of who we are, what we're doing and how people can help! So, what are your favorite bars (or craft-friendly restaurants!). it's important that legislators know that beer reform issues are important to business owners & constituents! So, what are your favorite bars?!

Baker Nissan South
2901 S Loop W Fwy, Houston, TX 77054
I spent two weeks researching and contacting dealerships about the 2012 Altima I wanted to buy, and Chris was the only salesman that took the time and effort to make sure I got exactly what I wanted. No other dealership seemed to even care. After working with the finance department, which was a breeze (unexpectedly), Chris filled the tank up with gas, coated the leather seats, tinted the windows and even threw in all-weather mats for me. I could not ask for better service! I will do all of my maintenance at Baker Nissan South and will buy my next Nissan from Chris (hopefully not anytime soon!) ;). Thanks for everything Chris! He even called th enext day to foolow up and make sure everything was working out okay.
