Preview of the New McAllen Public Library

I had an opportunity to tour the new McAllen Public Library prior to the grand opening this weekend. They have done an incredible job. I'll share some details later, thought I'd share some photos for now. Back later to share details about the new library.


The grand opening is this Saturday, December 10th. There will be free tours and giveaways. Lucky winners can walk away with an iPad, Nook, or Kindle; you definitely don't want to miss the grand opening. 

I definitely want to point out that there will be WiFi everywhere on the premises. You simply need to provide your email address for access. Other features include...well books, obviously, and e-books, computer common areas, meeting spaces, a cafe, a teen room, a 180 seat auditorium, and other features you expect from a library, like study rooms. 

The new library covers 123,000 square feet, making it the largest single-story library in the entire United States. The library was converted from an old Wal-Mart building. Despite it appearing to be a "ready structure", the project required a great deal of reengineering. As a testament to the skill of the designers, many of the improvements to harden the building are in plain sight; but not obvious. The new library is built to withstand hurricane winds; but there are no plans to make it a shelter. As it is, people will practically live there already. 

The library will officially open on Satuday December 10 at 10 a.m. Festivities will end at 6 p.m. Visit and for more information.

Give a Little Something, Get a Little Something With Smashburger

This Holiday season, give something you know others will want to use, a $25 Smashburger gift card. For your thoughtfulness, you get $5 back in Smashbucks for your next purchase. Seriously, that sweater you are thinking of giving? Put it back. We have two weeks of winter in South Texas. On the other hand, we have 365.25 days of hunger each year. That special somebody is going to eat one of those days. You can't go wrong with a $25 Smashburger gift card.

Let's not forget that you get $5 in Smashbucks back with your thoughtful purchase. You're probably thinking, "oh, great, what am I going to do with $5 in Smashbucks?" Well, Mr. or Ms. Sarcastic, you can try the limited-time only Cinnamon Spice Shake, made with real Häagen-Dazs ice cream. This special shake will only be available until December 31st or while supplies last.

Where else do YOU get rewarded for giving an awesome gift by getting something awesome in return? It doesn't happen, except when you step through the magical doors of Smashburger. Stop by 1020 W Nolana in McAllen, Texas to get a little something for your friends and a little something for you. Make this the year when everybody wins. With Smashburger gift cards, you can't lose.

Don't wait too long; the longer you wait, the more likely you'll panic and buy a lighted Christmas Tree necktie. Don't be that guy.
