    San Antonio?

    In San Antonio for a conference later in the month. My bride may join me for a weekend around the conference. Suggestions (i.e. restaurants..etc)

    awesome. I was there this summer and it was fun. all you need to do is walk down the river walk and you will find all you need.
    probably not Coyote Ugly if its just you two.
    Dicks is good if your in the mood to have the waiter to be ****** to you.
    Joes crab shack.
    Good Piano bar under Pat Obriens.
    There are many good Mexican Resturants on the River Walk. I ate at Casa Rio and it was good.


    Go to the Alamo so you can say you did it.
    Go to the Tower of the Americas. Pretty cool.
    Could catch a Spurs game also.

    There is an Italian restaurant along the Riverwalk next to the Hard Rock that is really good. Don't forget the carmel covered apple at Rocky Mountain Chocolate Factory.

    Just don't go anywhere in San Antonio outside the Riverwalk. Most of the city is a real dump, excluding perhaps the other Spanish missions (besides the Alamo) on the south side of town.

    Come to think of it, even the Riverwalk is overrun with tourists and teenage moms. It is a neat place the first time you are there, but becomes increasingly less interesting with each subsequent visit.

    I'd rather go to Mexico than San Antonio - there's less Mexicans


    read this post quickly - it might not last long

    This is true. I did notice we started to walk just a few blocks away from the River Walk and it got pretty scary. Like I wouldn't want to be there at night scary.

    Thanks all. I have spent a lot of time in Mexico and speak Spanish, so that isn't a problem!
