This urban wine inspired restaurant is located in the heart of San Antonio just 5 miles north of the River walk, and minutes south of the airport. Highway 29 that runs through Napa Valley inspired the restaurant’s name. The oversized patio with water fountain creates the perfect atmosphere to enjoy wine and appetizers or a four-course dinner. The bar and lounge area offers a trendy, stylish, urban setting for serious wine drinkers to sit back and enjoy a “Road Trip”. All road trips arrive with “wine itineraries” (tasting notes) for the “traveler” to refer to as they are sipping each glass. We specialize in wine country cuisine; Executive Chef Stefan Bowers has created an eclectic menu & makes seasonal changes to showcase fresh fruits, vegetables, and meats.

Bruce Auden continues to be the city's premier apostle of world-wise regional cooking, and there is no better place to get one's gastronomic feet and whistle wet than at the sinuous bar. Here, the noodle menu includes such enticements as chicken fried oysters with squid ink pasta and pancetta, and a red coconut curry with egg noodles, shrimp, and snap peas - which can be paired to appropriate wines by the glass from Biga's ample list. - Ron Bechtol

The entrees are healthier and less Tex than Mex by SA standards, but the chips and salsa outshine the main menu. Don't skip dessert, though, even if the only veggie you ate was salsa. Vegetarian entree options available. -- Clint Hale (11/08)
Paloma Blanca's old location, inherited from another Mexican restaurant with a long history, was low-ceilinged and cozy, with venerable murals and an intimate bar. The new digs, on the other hand, are multi-leveled, expansive, and cool - almost aloof - with a monochromatic color scheme, minimal decor, and dramatic lighting. The old menu has been slipped into this finery without a whisper - very Cinderella. If you liked the nachos rancheros before, you'll still find them here. Ditto the tacos al pastor, the tostadas de ceviche, and the quesadilla al carbon.Among other old favorites on the menu are the always-dependable enchiladas de la casa, the chicken "Divorciadas" with "irreconcilable " rice separating the verde from the ranchera sauces. The enchiladas San Miguel, both filled and topped with mushrooms in pungent guajillo sauce, may be the winners in this category. They reminded us of the emotive power of simple, earthy ingredients treated with respect - and then garnished with just a little bit of luxe, which in this case was some shredded queso cotijo. - Ron Bechtol
The concept of the restaurant is everything old school, using what they had and doing as they did before the break of the industrial revolution: approximately 1850. There are no blenders, mixers, choppers, ice cream machines, deep fryers, burr sticks, nor anything else with a motor or a plug. The menu will move absolutely in lockstep with the seasons. Every perishable ingredient we serve here comes from within 150 miles of this place, was raised in the old way, and has been handled in the old way. We know the rancher, and we know the farmer. We buy from them directly to keep the supply chain small and visible.
We buy whole animals, cut and dry-age them ourselves, and preserve them in the old, tried-and-true ways of the Victorian age, and the traditions that came before them. We smoke our own bacon, grind our own sausage, make our own orange marmalade, and can strawberries in the springtime. All fats used here we either rendered ourselves, or have been naturally crushed from a seed. When possible we will favor Texan products in this also, because money spent in your community stays in your community.
The Drive Bar & Grill is set in one of the most beautifull settings in South Texas. We are surrounded by "Yards Golf", one of the biggest and prettiest public driving ranges to be found. The place is unbelieveable, it's a must see! And, the food is to die for. We are kind of unique being a family oriented, fine dining, live music venue. Come see us and bring the family to our huge 40-acre playground.

It won’t appear in full-performance until the Tobin Center opens in 2014, but The Opera San Antonio will preview its world class talent in a gala performance that promises to be dazzling. Soprano Patricia Racette, a regular performer at the San Francisco and Metropolitan Operas, and Texas-based tenor Jay Hunter Morris headline with the San Antonio Symphony. Pieces to be performed span opera repertoire from Handel to today, with works by American composer Leonard Bernstein and TOSA artistic director Tobias Picker, and classics by Verdi, Puccini, and Wagner. A rendition of Jerome Kern’s “Ol’ Man River,” by renowned bass-baritone Eric Owens, gives the lineup a populist twist. Also included are Dolora Zajick, Daniela Mack, Alek Schrader, Lucas Meachem, and Lisette Oropesa.
Sami Akbari, who records and performs under the cheeky nom de plume sami.the.great, is possessed by a gentle vocal talent that lends tremendous emotional depth to her sweet and searching pop songs. Lyrically sharp and earnest all at once, as on her latest single “Hear Me Now,” sami.the.great calls upon her diverse life experience — having lived in the Middle East, Virginia, and now Brooklyn — to construct songs that effortlessly incorporate electronics, folky strums, piano, and sometimes groovy percussion in a refreshingly natural manner. Still touring on 2012’s well-received self-titled album, she brings her unique reading of contemporary adult pop music to 502 as something of an anomaly — rarely is an artist so adept at provoking such seemingly conflicting responses as empty smiles, emotional gusts, thought-filled stares, and happy feet. $10, 9pm Thursday, 502 Bar, 502 Embassy Oaks, (210) 257-8125, 502bar.com.
At the ripe old age of 10, Chloe Chaidez formed Wild Youth, a band that covered songs by Sigur Rós and David Bowie. Now 18, Chaidez fronts Kitten, a Los Angeles-based five-piece inspired by the synth-driven sounds of the Eurythmics and the Pet Shop Boys. With only the EPs Sunday School (2010) and Cut it Out (2012) to their credit, Kitten have played SXSW, toured with Paramore, opened for No Doubt, and garnered praise from Carson Daly and Teen Vogue. Daughter of Mike Chaidez (former drummer for the punk band Thee Undertakers), Chloe grew up listening to Siouxsie and the Banshees and has cited the late Ian Curtis as a stylistic influence. These dark spirits mesh with others in Kitten’s tracks, which fall somewhere between the ’80s-inspired electronica of Class Actress and the dark drama of Bat for Lashes.
Foreign film buffs might know Chile’s Sebastián Silva from his Sundance Film Festival hits The Maid (which took home two World Cinema Jury Prizes in 2009) and this year’s Crystal Fairy (starring indie fave Michael Cera opposite Gaby Hoffmann). True fans, however, will tell you to start at the beginning. Released in 2007, Silva’s Life Kills Me deftly combines the ironic melancholia of The Smiths, the dark comedy of Harold and Maude, and a bizarre film within a film into a morbid sleeper suggesting death might be smarter to embrace than to fear. Shot almost entirely in black and white, the openly gay director, screenwriter, painter, and musician’s cinematic debut screens at SAMA in conjunction with Global Lens 2013, a touring series launched by the Global Film Initiative in 2003.
Regarded as one of the architects of contemporary R&B, 10-time Grammy winner Kenny “Babyface” Edmonds brings heartfelt and impeccable music for grown folks to the Lila Cockrell stage on Friday. After writing and producing hits for Bobby Brown in the late ’80s, Edmonds joined former bandmate Antonio “L.A.” Reid to create LaFace Records, propelling acts like TLC, Toni Braxton, and Usher into the public consciousness. By the end of the ’90s the young producer was responsible for 42 No. 1 R&B hits and 51 Top 10 Pop hits. A gifted performer in his own right, fans can expect plenty of material from his 11 solo albums, including classics like “Whip Appeal” and “For the Cool in You,” which recall an era of R&B when records didn’t necessarily require 16 bars to make it on the radio.
