First Friday at Rosario’s…

It was like old times. Dana, Christopher and I spending Friday night at Rosario’s. Twenty five years ago it was ritual that we maintained for a really long time – we had to be their most loyal customers. Whenever Christopher is in town we always put Rosario’s on the agenda…

Corner of S. St Marys & S. Presa

The first Friday of every month the area south of downtown (Southtown) has a celebration appropriately called First Friday. Bounded loosely by South Flores and South Presa on the west and east, Durango and Lone Star to the north and south, Southtown is rich with galleries, coffeehouses, hipster dive bars, artists’ compounds, vintage clothing stores, crafts,  family-run taco joints, and chic new bistros.  All draw loyal customers, as do longtime favorites Rosario’s, El Mirador, and the stately Guenther House. The result: a vibrant and eclectic “arts underground” that invites exploration. It is a cultural awakening that calls out the true diversity of  San Antonio…

Wide variety of art...

After enjoying our dinner we walked the length of South Presa exploring the venues and visiting with all the local vendors. What fun! Dana, of course, had her eyes glued on anything that was related to her love of OWLS. She was not disappointed – she discovered an owl bonnet with eyes…

Looking good...
