When there is not a concierge…

Spring break is next week and many people will be drinking it up in South Padre, partying like there ain’t a damn thing to worry about or scourging around Sixth Street in Austin in search of new bands at South by Southwest.
But what if you can’t go to either of those places?
Never fear! Because Corpus Christi’s just as fun.
Downtown you can find just about anything to accommodate your alcoholic or musical needs.
Threads (423 William St) will have bands performing on March 11 from 10 p.m. to 2 a.m. It’s BYOB, but you have to have to be 21 to drink.
If you are not that age, it’s okay, you can still enjoy the music and good company. It’s definitely a college student hang out.
In addition, the House of Rock (511 Starr St) always has bands playing on Tuesday and Thursday for open mic night, definitely a good way to find out what’s new in the music scene.
Also on Tuesdays, musician Clarissa Serna has Acoustic Tuesday jams at Revolution on 2306 Airline Rd.
Another place worth checking out is Cassidy’s Irish Pub (601 N. Water St.).
The bar almost always has live music to enjoy while you hang out with buddies. It also has a very welcoming atmosphere, but it is a crowded joint.
However, if you don’t mind being around a lot of people, it’s totally worth it. Be sure to check out the Apple Pie Shot if you’re 21.
During the week Flanigin’s Bar (413 Starr St.) usually has a drink special on shots, and it’s also a pretty hopping’ place to hang at downtown.
If you’re more into the classy scene, Club Aria (326 N. Chaparral) is the place for you, especially if you just want to dance.
It’s located right beside the ever-popular sushi bar conveniently named Sushi Bar.
The Executive Surf Club (309 N. Water St.) is also worth checking out.
Bands are always playing in the patio and they have a large variety of beers to pick from.
If you’re a pool hall junkie, check out Paradise Pool and Billiards on 5141 Oakhurst Dr. The pool tables are professional size, and very classy.
Play is a little pricey, but if you pitch in with your friends it isn’t too bad of a deal. The bar is full and there’s a patio for smoking out back.
As for the beach, Malaquite is always a good choice beach. It’s clean and cozy in Mustang Island
There’s a fee to get in, but compared to the free beaches it’s totally worth it. As usual, pitch in with friends and it isn’t a bad deal.
