There's a replica of it in the Big Red Museum in downtown Dallas just across the street from the school book depository.

Huh, that's cool. I guess I've never thought once about the backstory of the frozen marg machines in nearly every Mexican restaurant I've been to.

I'm a rocks guy myself, but a frozen one on a hot day on a patio is nice, too.

I would like a margarita. Rocks, with salted rim please. And some tacos al pastor.
