Night in Old San Antonio
Let me just start by saying that San Anto people love to drink. Rarely do they need a reason but if there is a festival or celebration of any kind, you better believe that alcohol will be involved. I think that’s why events like Night in Old San Antonio (aka NIOSA) are so successful. We got there around 7pm and it was already packed with people sipping on $4 plastic cups of Miller Light. We...
The restaurant that I work at has art exhibitions that rotate every six weeks. It’s cool because the art really changes the atmosphere of the restaurant. We just got a new artist in on Saturday and it’s definitively some of the best stuff I’ve seen [we’ve had some pretty bizarre exhibits including one artist who only drew giant roosters, which prompted the old women who...

Below are some snaps from the day: The evening darkness brought us inside, where we enjoyed freeze pops and ice cream sandwiches. I’ve made...
el puffy taco.
Over the weekend I was informed that outside of Texas, the puffy taco is “totally in”. Here in San Antonio, the puffy taco has always been in; it’s just that I had never ordered it.
