One thing I missed during the lock-down days of the pandemic was traveling. Family vacations, of course, but also work travel. For example, several times I have flown to San Antonio, Texas to speak at a healthcare conference. I love visiting the Alamo and eating lunch at La Panaderia.
The last time I visited San Antonio, while walking from my hotel to La Panaderia, I saw a storefront with a green sign with gold letters that read: “SNACKS / WAX HANDS.”
As an outsider, I was befuddled: What is going on in this building? I am always up for snacks – but what are wax hands? Are wax hands the snacks??? I hope not.
Then someone I met in town explained the concept to me.
