The Northern River Walk
Following the River Walk north (that is, from the Hyatt, past Dick's Last Resort, and beyond the stone footbridge), you soon find the crowd starting to thin out. Farther on, the place becomes almost deserted. And here, amid the bridges, sculptured gardens and downtown buildings, it's very quiet and peaceful. No restaurants, shops, or clubs are here.
So if the hustle and bustle of the city gets to you, here is a getaway. It's a gorgeous green belt.
Good time out!
Stone Werks is a great place for dinner and a show. Set across from the Alamo Quarry shopping center offering live music on certain nights. A good place to hangout and people watch.
They just opened a another store off 1604 and Blanco Rd area, near the Super Target. Relaxed casual
Skip this restaurant
We read great reviews on this Thai restaurant and could hardly wait to try it for ourselves.
They have a lunch buffet and we had hoped to get there for that but it didn't work out so we went early evening.
The decor appeared to be Thai but the food tasted more like chinese.
It was very expensive for a non-impressive dinner.
The service was good but the food was a big disappointment.

Ok, a little Texas...
Ok, a little Texas history: Texas was originally part of the Spanish empire, then became part of Mexico. Well, in the 1830's the Texans rebelled against the oppresive Mexicans. During the war, some 200 Texans defended a missionary against some 5000 Mexicans. All the Texans were killed along with a lot Mexicans, and it bought time for the Texan army to maneuver and eventually defeat the Mexicans. So today there is a memorial
For about 10-15 years in the mid 1800s, Texas was its own country, a fact that Texans are quite proud of.
