The predecessor of Odesa, a small Tatar settlement, was founded by Hacı I Giray, the Khan of Crimea, in 1240 and originally named after him as “Hacıbey”. After a period of Lithuanian control, it passed into the domain of the Ottoman Sultan in 1529 and remained in Ottoman hands until the Ottoman Empire’s defeat in the Russo-Turkish War of 1792. The city of Odesa was founded by a decree of the Empress Catherine the Great in 1794. From 1819–1858 Odesa was a free port. During the Soviet occupation it was the most important port of trade in the Soviet Union and a Soviet naval base. On January 1, 2000 the Quarantine Pier of Odesa trade sea port was declared a free port and free economic zone for a term of 25 years.

Later on, those four became instrumental in the city’s success: the first one convinced the Empress to found Odesa, the second made it the fourth largest city in Russia in just eleven years, the third one made it free economic zone and the fourth one created the city plan used to build Odesa, which was considered the most advanced city plan at that time.
Odessa is essentially the principal city of Ector County. It has a large population, around 160,000. In 2014, Forbes Magazine called it the third fastest-growing city in the entire United States of America. Like many cities in Texas, Odessa was founded early, in 1881, as a water stop and cattle shipping point on the Texas and Pacific Railway. The city has seen its fair share of fortune and woe, and has several historic sites to prove it. One of its most intriguing attractions, though, is the Presidential Archives and Leadership Library located at 4919 East University Blvd.
After dinner we trundled back upstairs to the rooftop bar, where we partied away the night with the DJ throwing out the tunes. There was lots of dancing done. And again the two guys behind the bar were on hand to keep us with drinks in hand. They were both very pleasant and friendly.

Brunching is one of my top 5 life skills, and I wanted to get in some practice while in Dublin, so we headed here on a Sunday afternoon.

This space is very cool – a casual, classy lounge/bar with lots of armchairs, couches and dividers between tables so that you’re not too close anyone except your beloved.

Last night I got charged for each individual ingredient in my cocktail (had I known that would happen , I wouldn’t have ordered it). The bar tender followed me to my table to ask for the extra money f…or the drink, I had given him 12 thinking it would be enough . I was so embarrassed. As a person who worked as a cocktail waitress previously, it is so unprofessional to charge per ingredient (it was a classic cocktail, a negroni) Especially without any for warning. Really disappointed. See More

When it comes time to choose a lawyer, you should start by searching close to home. If you do have attorneys you are familiar with, ask who they believe would be best for you. After going through personal references – especially from individuals who had similar needs – you should broaden your search through public information resources. You can call your area’s attorney referral service or check legal organizations like Martindale-Hubbell. There are other resources available online, such as yellowpages.com. You can check websites for client reviews and other third-party forms of approval.
If you are suing someone or being sued, you need a civil lawyer. Civil attorneys – and criminal lawyers – are the legal representatives who argue on your behalf in a courtroom setting. Civil lawyers may represent you on matters of business, finance or a wide variety of other specialized needs.
