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
SA’s pristine locavore has added a la carte options to their prix-fixe offerings, but we still prefer the daily chef-designed meal of locally sourced organic fare. The early bird special, three courses for $35, makes this elite River Walk treat more pocket-book friendly.
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.

Come see us and bring the family to our huge 40-acre playground.

When Allan Jaffe and his wife Sandra moved from Pennsylvania to New Orleans in the early ’60s, they didn’t initially come for the music. But they ended up staying for the music after they took over a small, dingy art gallery in the French Quarter and turned it into Preservation Hall, a 100-seat concert venue that became the home of many a New Orleans-style jazz jam session and yielded the touring group, the Preservation Hall Jazz Band. The venue is still a hot spot in the city known for live music. The touring Preservation Hall Jazz Band will give San Antonians a taste of its 10th annual “Creole Christmas” on December 11 at the Empire Theatre. The group will perform holiday classics and also material from its previous albums.
The Orlando, Fla.-based quartet Trivium (guitarists/vocalists Matt Heafy and Corey Beaulieu, bassist/vocalist Paolo Gregoletto and drummer Nick Augusto) draws influence from heavyweights like Metallica, Black Sabbath, Judas Priest and Iron Maiden and creates music that’s been pegged as everything from metalcore to melodic death metal. Reminding that the band was “tipped for greatness” upon the surprise success of its 2005 release Ascendancy, only to be “consigned to the metallic dumper after the shambolic dropped clanger of 2006′s The Crusade,” The Guardian summed up this year’s offering Vengeance Falls (produced by Disturbed frontman David Draiman) as a “proud and focused heavy metal album that eschews current trends in favor of great songs, massive grooves, blazing lead breaks and a disarming air of combative euphoria.” Also on the bill: DevilDriver, After the Burial and Thy Will Be Done.
If you read her “official bio,” you’ll learn that New York-based Andrea Pomerantz Lustig is “known around the offices of Glamour as the “Beauty Sleuth,” thanks to the wildly popular beauty advice column and articles she wrote for the magazine for the last decade,” and that she’s “cherished by Glamour readers for her fresh, original beauty tips, ideas and solutions.” A look at her “unofficial bio” reveals that when she’s not appearing on shows like Good Morning America, Today and Entertainment Tonight, the University of Pennsylvania grad is likely juggling her “write-from-home career, three kids, a husband who’s more organized and demanding than Martha Stewart and an at-home beauty stash that takes up two rooms.” In support of her book How to Look Expensive: A Beauty Editor’s Secrets to Getting Gorgeous Without Breaking the Bank, Pomerantz Lustig visits the Barshop Jewish Community Center for a signing, meet-and-greet and presentation enhanced with “mini makeovers, snacks and sips, and a selection of unique items available for purchase from local favorite boutiques and jewelry designers.”
We all know the U.S. Marine Corps Reserve’s Toys for Tots program, which every year collects, well, toys for children in need during the holiday season. Lisa Morales (of Sisters Morales fame, now a well-established solo artist and producer, above) has been doing her own TFT event for 12 of the last 13 years, and the next one’s Wednesday at Sam’s Burger Joint. Morales will perform with Robyn Ludwick and Shelley King (Good Girls With Bad Intentions) and “maybe” with her own band. The rest of the lineup includes Augie Meyers, Ruben V, Patricia Vonne and Michael Martin, Ernie Garibay’s Cats Don’t Sleep and more.
Sutan Amrull learned how to apply makeup from “his 14-year-old friend Eva, who was under house arrest for breaking into a restaurant.” Those lessons paid off: In addition to a client list that includes Dita Von Teese and Adam Lambert, Amrull served as makeup artist for nine cycles of America’s Next Top Model, impersonating Tyra Banks on occasion. Adopting the alter ego Raja Gemini, Amrull competed on the third season of RuPaul’s Drag Race, joining the Heathers (a clique that Gawker noted “perfected the mean girl skill of making others feel like shit”) and becoming the show’s first Asian-American winner. Dubbed the “King of Queens” by LA Weekly, the performer/recording artist lands in SA courtesy of Rey Lopez Entertainment. But be warned: “Stand in her way and Raja will shantay past you like fashion roadkill.”
Venice, Calif., crossover thrash titans Suicidal Tendencies always stood apart. Even after the release of its now-acclaimed, deeply influential self-titled 1983 debut, punks didn’t know what to do with this gangsta-looking bunch of skaters who didn’t sound or dress like anyone else. “All these people told us we needed the proper ‘etiquette’ for the massive punk rock goal being an individual,” founder (and sole remaining original member) Mike Muir quipped in Louder Than Hell: The Definitive Oral History of Metal. “I always thought that was a little strange.” Now Muir is back with the first ST album in 13 years, aptly titled 13 (sorry, Ozzy), and still thrashing while no one dares to argue. With Terror, Trash Talk and the Inspector Cluzo.
