Memorial Day is finally here and it is the unofficial start to summer! The weather seems to have got the memo and it looks like we’re going to have 100+ degree heat for the foreseeable future. But don’t fret, fire up those grills, marinate those fajitas, and ice door your beverage of choice.
- I know two things: (1) people love top ten lists and (2) people love sharing their favorite restaurants. So why not go visit Foodspotting and create a Guide to showcase the food that you think makes the Alamo City so great? Have ten favorite places to get burgers? Enchiladas? Country cooking? Desserts? I want to get SA’s food scene noticed, so I want all y’all to go create a guide and on June 3rd, 2011 send out a Tweet with a link to your guide and include “@foodspotting” and “#FoodspotSA” so that they know how awesome SA is. Check out one of my guides and hit me up if you have any questions and let all your friends know!
- If you didn’t see my post yesterday about Rocker Dogz, go read it now. The most amazing hot dog you will have eaten in a long time. Kris Martinez, the chef and entrepreneur, is incredibly friendly and takes great pride in his creations. Be sure to follow them on Twitter and Facebook to find out where they will show up next!
- The non food link of the week goes to San Antonio Street Scene where a local photographer captures many interesting images of San Antonio. Photographing not only street art but also people, the site provides an interesting perspective of life in San Antonio.
- A couple of my friends had everyone out to The Grill at Leon Springs to celebrate their last day of not having children – they were going in to induce the next day. The meal was almost as good as the company, but if you go you have got to get the Walnut Blue Cheese Salad as an appetizer; the blue cheese is plentiful and the salad really sets the tone for your meal. I ended up ordering the pork tenderloin with scalloped potatoes and was impressed. The meat was very tender and the sauce had a nice smokey taste to it. By the way, baby Robert was born the following day at 8.14 pounds and a full head of hair!
