Les Munn, along with partners Joe Gay and Justin Jones, have opened Crossties Entertainment Rail District and already are moving onto the next steps.

One that opened just in time for summer was Frozen Rail, based out of that caboose downtown.

"The caboose is owned by the city of Texarkana, Arkansas," Munn said. "Originally, it was intended to be sort of a museum piece. But for the most part, it has sat there unused. So I talked to Kenny Haskins, city manager, about an idea I had to turn it into a bar with a deck. He really liked the idea and since we had all the licenses necessary to operate it, it did not take long to get it going."

Frozen Rail started off with classic icy drinks, such as margaritas and daiquiris, as well as cans of cold beer. Part of the downtown entertainment district, Frozen Rail will be open year round, changing the menu according to the season.
