items that don't fit elsewhere. Here you can expect to find an eclectic
listing of items that may

Having a Party?
If you are responsible for a gathering up to
perhaps 20 people, then a great idea and one everyone enjoys,
particularly the locals, is to have dinner on the river.
Literally, on the river. Just contact a Riverwalk restaurant
that you wish to cater the meal and they will arrange
river barge for you and
your guests to enjoy dinner. You dine while cruising up and
down the river. This is really great! But you best
plan way ahead, for these barges are normally booked a long while
ahead. P.S., if you are arranging for a dinner party on a
barge let me know. I'll join you. I just love these

|Outlet Malls!!! No, this is not in San Antonio but in
my service to provide you with the best and most complete coverage of
what to do and see in town I feel required to tell you about the outlet
malls in San Marcos. Particularly when I read that these outlet

guests and local residents free afternoon tea from about 3:30 to 5:30.
|Theater If at all possible I recommend seeing a show
or performance at the Majestic
Theater. Check their web page for listing of scheduled events. The theater interior is truly beautiful. And the
only way for you to see it is to attend a performance. Be
cautioned, you want to see the Majestic not its smaller sister
theater, the Empire.|
|A Golfer? Check out the Express-News' 2004
Golf Guide (still listed as of 10/8/08). Lists the best courses, holes, etc. You
may have to go through the hassle of registration to get to this
page. The numbskulls at the newspaper decided to make everyone
register with the thinly veiled pretext of better serving us.
Give us all a break. I've copied the above to a separate Golf
page so you won't have to go through the registration hassle if
you just want to look and not touch. Here's a very good
San Antonio golf
site I recently stumbled upon for those who can't get enough.
They list all the courses, fees and have a map of the locations around
