Life as I see it: work, play and in-between.

King William Fair ~ April 27, 2013
One of my favorite San Antonio events is the offbeat King William Parade in the lovely King William National Historic District (the oldest historic district in Texas). Above is a photograph taken during last year’s event. Some 50,000 are expected this year!
After the parade, one can stroll through the neighborhood fair, which includes arts and crafts by many talented artists, and purveyors of delicious specialty foods and products, many “home grown” in Texas.

Summer in San Antonio, Texas ~ More Random Photos

The 2012 “staycation,” continued.

  • Tre Trattoria (enjoyed a delightful prix fixe supper courtesy of Chef Jason Dady who is pictured above, and I’ll definitely be back)
  • King William National Historic District (I discovered a 1914 inscription in the sidewalk during a warm, early evening stroll through the shady King William District); here’s a link to the National Park Service.
  • Pearl Farmers Market (held each Saturday in an area being rapidly developed at historic Pearl Brewery, which includes a branch of the Culinary Institute of America).
  • Social Media Breakfast (held monthly, I’ve learned so much about what’s going with new technologies and local tech efforts).

 

Summer in San Antonio, Texas ~ “Life” Around Town

I moved to San Antonio in fall, 2010, and I am still a bit of a tourist.

Sharing a few photographs from my travels around town in 2012 … as I enjoyed a “staycation.”

  • Liberty Bar (marvelous food and a great place to camp out if your wireless goes down at home)
  • Tower of the Americas (I live nearby and enjoy this landmark a great deal; Chart House is found at the top, and it has a commanding view of San Antonio)
  • Pearl Brewery (an area being rapidly developed at present which includes a branch of the Culinary Institute of America, and a Saturday farmers market)
  • Auden’s Kitchen (located on the far north side of town in a very nice neighborhood, I love coming here for gourmet hamburgers; chef Bruce Auden is perhaps even better known for BIGA on the Riverwalk ~ either way, you can’t miss)
