Travel Tips for San Antonio

Yeeehaw!

by Cherie_J

Who, What, When
The San Antonio Stock Show & Rodeo, now in its 54th year, is one of the nation's premier rodeos, featuring some of the world's top cowboys, finest livestock and hottest musical performers. This year's Rodeo runs from Saturday, February 1, through Sunday, February 16. Cowboy terms and lingo

"the well"
The inside of a bull's spin; this is NOT where a cowboy wants to land when exiting a bucking bull.

"top"
The best, most mighty of all; a "top hand" is a damn good cowboy.

"punkin' roller"
A small, non-PRCA run rodeo; often a small-town event tied to a county fair.

"grand entry"
This ritual marks the opening of a rodeo; riders on horseback gallop into the arena wearing colorful outfits and carrying flags; they make figure-8 or cloverleaf patterns as featured contestants are introduced, then all leave the arena to make room for the first event of the rodeo, bareback bronc riding.

"draw"
The animal picked for a contestant to ride in a given event (this used to be drawn from a hat; now it is done by computer). A "good draw" is an animal the bucks with spirit and consistently (or that runs straight and sure for a timed event); a "bad draw" is the opposite or is impossible to ride.

"the barrier"
A spring-loaded rope stretched across the opening of the chute; it is released to give the steer a headstart, but riders are docked 10 points if they cross it before they should (called "breaking the barrier").

"mark out"
Upon leaving the chute, the rider of a bucking bronc or bull must have his feet placed above the break of the horse's shoulder. If the cowboy's feet are not in the correct position when the horse hits the ground on its first jump out of the chute, he is disqualified.

San Antonio Gothique

by lyrael about Communion / Sanctuary

This is a very fun/different place near downtown (just outside of downtown a few miles, near the San Antonio Community College) that offers some great people watching and wonderful music. Go Friday for new Industrial/EBM/Synth Pop and some old classics thrown in for good measure (some 80's and goth). On Saturdays it is primarily 80's music and the crowd is a bit more diverse. The drink are pretty cheap too. $2 well (think vodka tonic) with occasional drink specials (I think they had $1 cherry vodka sours at one point) and $4 or $5 top shelf drinks (SoCo and Lime Baybee!). On Thursdays it is lady's night - women get in free and drink for like $1 all night. Rock on. Black is safe :)

Try a burrito bar

by dtimoske about Habeneros Grill

Everything here is great including the artwork on the walls. The burritos are big so bring an appetite. It's a great place to hangout after watching a movie. There are two locations in town and both are near movie theaters. The atmosphere is laid back, and seating is available both inside and outside. On the weekends, there is typically live music. The white queso (cheese) is absolutely amazing. Definitely try it!

Remember the Alamo!

by barbipez

you gotta visit the Alamo while in San Antonio. i remember visiting as a child, and recently visited again with a friend. and WOW! i remember it being this huge mission and if you've ever seen any of the alamo movies, you might think the same. but after visiting this last time, you realize how small it really is. but the history behind it is amazing! the Alamo is a huge part of texas history.

this visit wont last you long...i would say an hour. and hope you're visiting when a tour guide is giving an elementary school a talk. that's fun to listen in on as well :)

they still sell lots of crap to tourists, but we all love crap i think :-)

beautifully landscaped around the area.

Remember the Alamo!
