Rudy's Country Store and Bar-B-Que proclaims itself the "Worst Bar-B-Que in Texas." A primitive protest of my own is now in order: Unless the bellwether brisket improves markedly, this tongue-in-cheek claim is in danger of becoming more fact than ad-copy fiction. Dry, boring, and even visually unappealing, the purported pride of Texas "Q," came alive only with liberal lashings of Rudy's famous (and famously sweet-sour) "sause." - Ron Bechtol

Paul Brooks, the proprietor of Snack & Smack Bar-B-Que, formerly Big Mama's Soul Food restaurant, at 820 New Braunfels Ave., cooks barbecue brisket, ribs, sausage, and other local favorites over seasoned mesquite wood six days a week. He rests on Sunday. After he loads up a portable barbecue pit with mesquite wood and lights it, Brooks wraps a rack of marinated pork ribs in aluminum foil and lays it on the grill. He then hitches the pit to a van that bears the Snack & Smack Bar-B-Que sign, and pulls it into the parking lot of the Government Hill restaurant. The smoke attracts loyal customers who come for a barbecue plate with a choice of soul food sides: rice, spinach, beans, mashed potatoes, corn, cabbage, chitterlings, yams, black-eyed peas, homemade macaroni and cheese, and bread, all for $5.50. - Michael Cary

St. Hedwig boasts of nothing that I could see except Texas Pride Barbeque, the only building by the road. And boy howdy, are they proud of that. At night, the neon lights of red and green outine the shack and light up the joint like a Christmas Tree. I didn't get a chance to sample the fare thoroughly on my first excursion, but I sidled up to the bar, sniffed the vittles, and made a friendly inquiry or two. I learned enough to know that it would be worth coming back. I've waited longer for a seat in a San Antonio restaurant than it took us to drive to Texas Pride, and adventure, as much as the meal, was worth the trip. The guy cutting ribs said lots of folks drive out from San Antonio, even for lunch. The draw must be the food, because it isn't St. Hedwig. - Retha Oliver
Tom's is a catholic establishment: There are many vehicles to salvation, some of which never even had feet. The meat sits squarely on the damn-good side of barbecue, and we really got off on the fried catfish. Tom's also features some of the best veggie side dishes available at a mainly meat joint. The sweet potato rules. One might even order a Caesar salad. There are three locations, and an expanded menu, and — while I can't speak directly to it — I am assured by other patrons that the ribs remain the same. - Jonathan Marcus
Sports Bar/Restaurant with large TV, pool tables, foozeball and dodgeball.

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.
