The Birth of The Margarita

As you would expect, there are many who claim to have invented the iconic lime and tequila drink, the Margarita. While many of the stories seem valid, the majority of the credit goes to Margaret “Margarita” Sames. Margarita Sames was originally from Miranda City. She married Bill Sames, who was working in the Sames car dealership in Laredo. Shortly after they married, they decided to move to tropical Acapulco and Bill sold his interest in the dealership to his brother, Harry Sames.

As the story goes, Mrs. Sames concocted the drink for her guest at her Acapulco vacation home over the Christmas holiday in 1948. Her husband Bill had cocktail glasses made with “Margarita” etched on them and the name caught on. The cocktail was popular and was shared among some of Sames’ guests and friends, including movie stars Lana Turner and John Wayne, hoteliers Joseph Down and Nick Hilton, and other travelers who subsequently added the drink to restaurant and hotel menus across the world.

The Future of Downtown Laredo

LAREDO, TEXAS (KGNS) – On Sunday night, we told you about the state of affairs when it comes to downtown Laredo.

There is a lack of stores right now, and where does the area stand right now?

Now, we tell you about a local family who is trying to change the image of downtown by investing in one area.

They have bought an old recognizable building, and transformed it into a restaurant/bar.

Hank and Elizabeth Sames are the proud owners of Siete Banderas. You may know it as the old Jitney Jungle.

“It seemed to me like the perfect area to create an entertainment district, and so we started buying this district”, says Hank.

A district that needs a lot of attention and TLC, which the owners of Siete Banderas did with the property.

“We wanted to retain and preserve the beautiful home that was built in the 1870’s, and when we bought it, it was a disaster. This place used to be the old Jitney Jungle. It was boarded up for 30 to 40 years”, says Elizabeth.

Now, it is this beautiful renovated bar/ restaurant.

A different site for downtown, but a place that the Sames hope it can help transform downtown.

“It’s all here, potential is here. You know, we have to concentrate on the local market and there is plenty of business for that”, says Hank.

One other business that is coming downtown is the new outlet mall.

Right now, the demolition is almost complete. But what is expected to come is a lot of stores, and opportunities for a lot of business owners.

Like the Sames, they hope those who visit downtown or the outlet malls will also visit their restaurant and bar.

“I can see the women staying down at the mall shopping and the men are gonna camp out here at the bar. That’s gonna be a given. What makes men want to go shopping? But this is gonna be an added plus for all”, says Elizabeth.

In the meantime, they continue working on the opening of this new gem downtown, hoping it becomes a hit – and an example for other business owners to follow suit.

“I hope that investors will look here and see the opportunity that is available. Lots of opportunity, there is plenty of buildings, plenty of ideas, and I’m hoping we are not the only ones to be investors down here”, says Hank.

The opening of Siete Banderas is scheduled for the month of December.

In the meantime, the City of Laredo is investing over $4 million in improvements to downtown, starting next year.

This money will cover new lighting, street improvements and sidewalks, among others.

Saving Historic Buildings

Laredo is one of the fastest growing cities in the country. Between 2007 and 2012 the city grew by more than 13 percent. Downtown merchants, like Maria Velazquez, have been noticing the change.

“They are moving here from everywhere! – especially from Mexico,” Velasquez says in Spanish.

That’s driving a demand for housing. Subdivisions are popping up around the city and construction is booming, but some old buildings are being torn down to make way.

“I’ve heard they’re so old that if you step in, they’ll collapse on you,” Velasquez says.

Since the 1990s, the city of Laredo has been trying to strike a balance between preservation and development. A 1996 city council resolution cites a study that showed 75 percent of the historic buildings that had been demolished in the United States, up to that point, were replaced by surface parking.

Laredo wants to avoid that.

For Elizabeth Romano-Sames, preservation has become personal. “Old homes? I grew up in old homes, I love stuff like this, I love the architecture, I love the lines, I love the wavy glass,” she says.

We are standing inside an old home that Romano-Sames is renovating into a restaurant and bar. The home was built in 1870. The glass in the building is original – still wavy, because back then, they poured the glass by hand.

Romano-Sames shares her passion for renovation with her husband Hank. A couple of years ago, they started buying historic buildings in Laredo. Some buildings were ornate Victorians, others were Spanish colonials. All were marked for demolition.

“My husband and I are interested in revitalizing downtown Laredo, and we have a bunch of buildings,” Romano-Sames says.

She says they’ve managed to save six or seven historic buildings so far, but it’s been expensive; there are always more slated for destruction. They’ve asked their friends to embrace their mission.

Bill Luft, a 72-year-old architect and designer, is the person with the artistic eye – he sees the potential in a crumbling building. Take the restaurant they’re currently renovating:

“This was just awful,” Luft says. “There was no glass here. No windows. It was all boarded up, it was terrible looking. We found the arches in the wall and put them back to mark where they were.”

He’s done more than that for the old building which they’re transforming into the restaurant and bar.

“The new part – we just kept it kind of contemporary, not to even try to be the same as the old building,” Luft says. “It’s compatible, but it honors the old building.”

The Siete Banderas, or Seven Flags, restaurant and bar opens this weekend.

In Laredo, It’s 7 Flags Over Texas

The name for one of Texas’ popular amusement parks, Six Flags Over Texas, comes from history. The slogan is used to describe the six different countries that, at one time or another, had sovereignty over territory that now falls within Texas borders.

The six flags represent Spain, France, Mexico, the Republic of Texas, the Confederate States of America and the United States.

The border city of Laredo, however, lives under seven flags.

Margarita Araiza leads the Webb County Heritage Foundation, which runs the Republic of the Rio Grande Museum. The museum is dedicated to telling the story behind Laredo’s city flag.

The flag has red and white, like every American flag. There is a red vertical rectangle with three white stars on the left. To the right, there are two horizontal rectangles. One rectangle is white. The other is traditionally black, but some Texans like to change it to a dark blue.

“The three stars were for the three states,” Araiza says. “Texas was included. It was Coahuila, Nuevo Leon and Tamaulipas – but Coahuila y Texas was one province.”

The museum is located in the San Augustín Plaza in downtown Laredo. It was the heart of the Republic of the Rio Grande.

“That building was the capital building – the real building – it’s not a recreation, it’s actually there,” Araiza says. “They had a president, they had a cabinet, they passed laws, they think they had established a couple of banks.”

Unlike other “independent countries” in what’s now the United States, like the Republic of California or Republic of Texas, the Republic of the Rio Grande was never officially recognized by other countries.
