You won’t believe what Cryptomundo has discovered about M. K. Davis! Amazing images support our claims.
Okay, you thought I was going to check-in at noon and keep going on about Bigfoot massacres and such things forever, I bet.
Nope, I thought I’d lighten this up and report on a real-life strange coincidence: “M. K. Davis” is an eating joint in San Antonio, Texas, known for its rather “Bigfoot” portions.
Dave Stone, on his Silver Creek blog (Silver Creek is a neighborhood in San Antonio), actually has a recent posting entitled “Lunch Report: M.K. Davis on North Flores and Poplar.”
It’s not about Bigfooter M. K. Davis exploring new hominoid finds from Flores Island of Homo floresiensis (“Flores Man”; nicknamed Hobbit). Not at all.
Dave points out that “M.K. Davis Restaurant and Bar has been around since 1956,” and is well-known for its “1/3 pound cheese burger” and “huge 32 ounce schooner.”
Now as far as conspiracy theories go, I don’t even want to think about how San Antonio was ground-zero for the funding for 1950s’ Yeti research and critical to the beginnings of the first expeditions into the Bluff Creek area in search of Bigfoot. This was all thanks to the sponsorship of Tom Slick and his friends living in San Antonio. Slick even used as one of his early covers to get entry into Nepal, the San Antonio Zoological Society.
What if records indicate someday that the early planning sessions of those Slick expeditions happened at that new restaurant in the 1950s, just right down the street, M. K. Davis?
How bizarre would that be?

Loren Coleman is one of the world’s leading cryptozoologists, some say “the” leading living cryptozoologist. Certainly, he is acknowledged as the current living American researcher and writer who has most popularized cryptozoology in the late 20th and early 21st centuries. Starting his fieldwork and investigations in 1960, after traveling and trekking extensively in pursuit of cryptozoological mysteries, Coleman began writing to share his experiences in 1969. An honorary member of Ivan T. Sanderson’s Society for the Investigation of the Unexplained in the 1970s, Coleman has been bestowed with similar honorary memberships of the North Idaho College Cryptozoology Club in 1983, and in subsequent years, that of the British Columbia Scientific Cryptozoology Club, CryptoSafari International, and other international organizations. He was also a Life Member and Benefactor of the International Society of Cryptozoology (now-defunct). Loren Coleman’s daily blog, as a member of the Cryptomundo Team, served as an ongoing avenue of communication for the ever-growing body of cryptozoo news from 2005 through 2013. He returned as an infrequent contributor beginning Halloween week of 2015. Coleman is the founder in 2003, and current director of the International Cryptozoology Museum in Portland, Maine.
