Finally the cold weather seems to have passed on by; I blame it on missing last week’s Quick Bites! The Rodeo has almost come and gone, the Spurs will be back in the Alamo City pretty soon, and you can enjoy a beer on the patio. Life is good.
- The Beverage Bar is turning into a place where I not only do work on Mobile Apps, but also enjoy good food. The inside is something you would expect to find in the Bay Area that is sort of a hodgepodge of a coffee bar, wine bar, meeting place, and kick-back-and-relax place (complete with a Wii). I like the open feel and the people are nice.
- The Dosarita at the Quarry Hofbrau is pretty tasty and packs a punch; I would have never imagined that a Dos Equis mixed with a margarita would have tasted this good.
- If you want a chance to see San Antonio in a different sort of way, check out the Alamo City Ghost Tours. The tour happens nightly and meets across from the Alamo. Everyone is given some ghost hunting equipment (infrared temperature sensors and EMF readers) and the guide, J.R., is incredibly interesting as he gives you some history of our great city. The price is $15/person and you get a group discount of $10/person for groups of ten or more.
- The food link of the week goes to BR Meyers article in The Atlantic called “The Moral Crusade Against Foodies” as it has caused quite an uproar in the foodie community. While not really considering myself a foodie, but rather an average person who likes food, I don’t really have a dog in this hunt and found some of the points interesting. At any rate, controversy is always fun, right?
- Bun ‘n’ Barrel has a great lunch deal for cheeseburger and fries for $6. The burger is pretty good (it would be better with a home baked bun), but the fries are really good. After walking into the restaurant and seeing an older gentleman with an awesome milkshake, I knew I had to get one myself.
- The non food blog of the week is for a new iPad app called Pennant. As a baseball fan, I am salivating to get an iPad just to buy this app; it would be days of fun and I’d love to go back and see some of the games that I attended.
