  4. The Fabric of Fulton

    Over the past couple of months, our In Their Words videos have shared the stories of friends and partners who were impacted by Hurricane Harvey. All of us who were in the storm's path—including our Corpus team—will never forget the havoc wrought or the lives changed. One year later, we remain humbled and deeply honored to be a part of Texas' dynamic, strong coastal community. Together, we persevered and continue to rebuild. We hope you've enjoyed watching the videos and have felt inspired by the courage, persistence, and grace of these Texas restaurateurs. Our last video from this segment features a family-run restaurant called Benchwarmers in Fulton, Texas.

  7. Bouncing Back at Black Marlin Bar & Grill Post-Hurricane Harvey

    When Hurricane Harvey made landfall on the Texas gulf coast in August 2017, ocean-front restaurants like Black Marlin Bar & Grill in Port Aransas, Texas, were impaled by high-force winds, torrential rain, and rising tides. Black Marlin, which is a part of the Palmilla Beach Resort & Golf Community, was devastated by the storm as was the property's manicured golf course. Like other businesses across Mustang Island, Black Marlin was forced to re-build post-Harvey, but it has come out of the experience stronger than ever before. Continue reading →

A chalky surfboard displays the day's specials (chicken fried steak on this occasion). Next to it, a mirrored back bar is stocked with spirits and silver taps, the latter of which dispense ice cold beer into frosty mugs. Continue reading →
