    Hey guys- I have a really long layover Friday night into Saturday in San Antonio and I was wondering if anyone had any advice on places to go, party, get a few drinks, etc... Never been there before so I am looking forward to it. Any suggestions are welcome. Thanks icon_smile.gif

    Go to the Bonham Exchange (locals call it the Bottom Exch...oh, you get it).

    Kitty corner from the back left of the Alamo.

    Things start picking up around 11 PM. If you get there earlier take a tour. It's a beautiful, historic building.

    Ruth's Chris in Sunset Station if you want to be classy about it.

    Chris Madrid's for a greasy hamburger and beers.

    Lulu's for a three pound cinnamon roll.

    The original Taco Cabana.

    Probably not what you are looking for, but still worth noting ... even if most of it is drunkfood and in the suburbs.

    Yep. This place is fun. They have go-go boys (the last time that I went) that were hot.

    There is a certain nostalgia for visiting the "original" anything, especially something housed in a pink and tacky building that provides both greasy breakfast tacos in the morning to cure a hangover as well as a greasy shrimp tampico quesadilla in the evening after the bars.

    You are making me hungry. Mexican breakfast, yum. Chorizo con heuvos, migas ... Sometimes I really miss Central Texas.
