Did you know that President Teddy Roosevelt gathered his infamous “Rough Riders” in The Menger Hotel Bar? The Volunteer Cavalry was raised in 1898 in order to aid the Spanish-American War. Other notable guests who have stayed at the Menger include Dwight D. Eisenhower, Mae West, Babe Ruth, and Oscar Wilde. The hotels holds the unofficial title of “Most Haunted Hotel in Texas,” but don’t take our word for it, stay there yourself!
For anyone who complains that this city does not have the same “je ne sais quoi” as say, New York City or Paris, well…I would say, “you’re sadly mistaken!” Over the last few years, our great city has really stepped up its cultural game and we are the benefactors. On any given weekend (especially in the spring), one can find a unique event or upscale festival. In recent years, a group of passionate foodies and winos collaborated on a grand idea to bring the city together to showcase our finest chefs and food patrons. The result? Five days of non-stop, finger-licking cuisine and wine pairings over worth salivating.
If you didn’t catch Culinaria this year, just do yourself a favor and get it on your calendar for 2013. Fortunately for the winners of our first “T Stevens Real Estate Giveaway,” Lindsey & Brian Avestas were able to attend the concluding night of the festival, “Burgers, BBQ & Beer.” Don’t let the unsophisticated title fool you, this event featured chefs from Las Canarias, Ostra, Esquire Tavern, and even Magnolia Pancake Haus. And if you think plain jane cheeseburgers were the only thing served, you would be surprised to learn that chefs featured recipes which included rabbit, sausage, and venison!

Did you know that the first movie to ever win an Academy Award for Best Picture was shot in San Antonio? That’s right, the silent film Wings was shot in 1927 at Kelly Field in San Antonio, Texas. The film went on to play for 63 weeks and launched the career of Gary Cooper. Though the official premiere was held in New York City, the film was previewed at the Texas Theatre on Houston Street.

We’re back with our #2 item on San Antonio Magazine‘s list of 101 Fun Things to do This Summer! Trust me, you won’t want to miss the Andy Warhol collection at the McNay Museum of Art. The collection features some of the pop artist’s all-time great works and May 20 is your last chance to see them.
May 20 marks the date of McNay’s Night in the Limelight Spring Party. Of course you will always find exquisite art at the McNay, you should take advantage of this opportunity. It will be a fantastic conversation starter at your next cocktail party to talk about the effect of Mr. Warhol on contemporary art!
I know what you’re thinking, but it’s a lot more than Tony Parker! Actually, both cities share a deep appreciation for the promotion and preservation of contemporary art. In 2001, Parisians conceived the idea of Nuit Blanche or “White Night,” which would introduce a myriad of artistic disciplines to the masses. With the success of this event, an international movement was born and San Antonio soon followed suit. Their own version of White Night, Luminaria, has just celebrated its fifth consecutive year in the city and shows no signs of going anywhere.
I had the pleasure of volunteering at Luminaria this year at Mayor Julian Catro’s private dinner. Volunteering aside other Phyllis Browning agents, we could directly see the cultural impact that Luminaria has on the citizens of this community. Our city has such a rich artistic heritage and there are so many unique aspects of San Antonio that should be celebrated. I found the schedule of events to be full of such diverse talent, everything from “Jazz Poets of San Antonio” to “Crawling With Monsters.” There were accomplished artists in dance, orchestra, visual arts, theatre, and videography. The best part – it doesn’t cost anyone a dime to attend this event!
I am very proud to be associated with Luminaria and I think it is a fantastic way to showcase the talent of San Antonio, as well as, educate the public about how contemporary art has a strong following and a validated place in our culture. I am excited to participate in Luminaria in the future. If you didn’t get a chance to go this year, please make plans to do so next year!
With the promise of every coming summer, leaves anticipation and excitement concerning the “next weekend getaway” and what to do on a lazy Sunday afternoon. We know that we live in an exceptional city, but do we really know what all there is to do here? San Antonio Magazine has just released its brand new issue which chronicles “101 Fun Things To Do This Summer.” We think this is a fabulous way to check off an unbelievable checklist, so we’ve decided to dig up our favorites, post them for you, then try them out ourselves.
So here’s to an unforgettable summer and getting to know some San Antonio hotspots!
