The $8 mini pitchers are where it is at. I went on a trivia night and I was kind of surprised. It doesn't look like much from the outside but it has a really fun atmosphere. I think I had the Georgia Peach, all the mini pitchers are mixed drinks and they are fairly strong

Good food for brunch or lunch/dinner. Try the manhole cover for brunch (you will want to split it, its huge) and the french fries are amazing. The moonshine cocktails are really good as well, there is one with sweet tea that will sneak up on you.

The Pearl is on the edge of downtown and has several restaurants. It is a wonderful place to wander around in the afternoon to soak up some of San Antonio.

This place has amazing burgers and multiple vegetarian options. They have live music on the weekends in the bar and sitting outside is usually very nice even in the summer. There is no indoor seating unless you want to sit in the bar.

Free on Tuesday Afternoons. This place is actually really cool, they have everything from Dinosaurs to Natural History to interactive displays of the Human Body. It is intended to be a kids museum but it is great for adults too.
