So…I finally decided to start a blog. Over the last few years, I’ve realized that I really like to eat and drink. No seriously, I really like to try new restaurants and bars in my city because we’ve been lucky enough to have some of the most amazing places opening over the last few years. This city has gone from a sleepy town with national chain restaurants everywhere to a place with a very happening food and drink scene. Simultaneously, I also realized that I hated living in SA’s suburban neighborhoods (can you say Stone Oak?). Mostly because of the horrendous traffic but also because there were very few unique and special places to visit to enjoy really good food and cocktails. I convinced my husband to sell our house and move to the center of the city- and we haven’t looked back. That move sparked my interest in trying different restaurants and bars since there is always something new popping up.
I also realized that I kept getting asked by my family, friends an co-workers for recommendations of where to eat and drink. They’d ask things like “where are some good happy hour spots?” or “What’s a good kid and adult friendly spot by the Zoo?”. And I’d immediately spout off 4 or 5 of my best recommendations. So that’s where this idea came from. You want to know a good place to go or thinking about trying out that new spot? I’ll try it for you and let you know what I think.
I’ll be honest- I have a special love affair going on with anything in the central core of the city like the Pearl, Tobin Hills, Downtown, Southtown and Olmos Park so you’ll see that the places I tend to hit up are all in those areas. But- I will also venture out every where. Give me a good reason to go outside 1604 and I’ll make it happen! Also, I try to support local businesses as much as possible, so expect a lot of that too.
From time to time, you may also see me write about other things like traveling to other awesome cities (I LOVE NYC!) and other fun things going on in and around San Antonio.
So, that’s it. Let’s see how this goes and let’s have fun!
