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.

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.
Penned by Harlem Renaissance poet Langston Hughes at the height of the civil rights movement, Black Nativity employs a predominantly (if not entirely) black cast to the reframe the birth of Christ with poetry, dance, gospel songs and folk spirituals. An expression of Hughes’ late-in-life interest in the oral traditions of the African-American church, the musical debuted in 1961 and is now a holiday tradition for roughly a quarter-million annual viewers. Directed by Danielle King, the Renaissance Guild’s 4th annual production offers theater-goers a unique opportunity to experience Black Nativity in its original form before (or after) heading out to see Kasi Lemmon’s modernized new film starring Forest Whitaker, Angela Bassett, Jennifer Hudson and Tyrese.
Created in the vein of rock operas like Jesus Christ Superstar, Green Day’s 2004 concept album American Idiot follows fed-up Jesus of Suburbia out of Jingletown and into a gritty city in search of meaning in the post-September 11 era. Thanks to a collaboration between the SoCal punk trio (led by Billie Joe Armstrong) and Spring Awakening director Michael Mayer, American Idiot is now a loud and irreverent Broadway musical, the touring version of which lands at the Majestic this week. Anchored by a theme of rage versus love, the 2010 Tony winner employs all its namesake album’s tracks (plus minimal dialogue and other Green Day hits) to paint what The New York Times described as “a pulsating portrait of wasted youth ... bring on the sex, drugs and rock ’n’ roll, please!”
Resident DJs Eddie and Danny-D welcome freestyle recording artist Noel in a concert featuring the hit "Silent Morning."
The Wood Brothers band plays blues/Americana as you’ve never heard it before. Brothers Chris (upright bass) and Oliver (guitar), with the recent addition of multi-instrumentalist Jano Rix, are a three-part vocal harmony feast for the ears. The group just released The Muse, its fourth studio album and first as a trio and Nashville-based band. For the first time, they all sang their parts around the same mic, leaving in mistakes and all, which tells you a lot about their aesthetic approach—this is good but muddy stuff. Rix is a show apart: he plays the so-called “shuitar” (pronounced “shitar,” get it?), an old, beat-up guitar turned into a unique drum set. Some classify the Wood Brothers’ music as blues, Americana, folk, etc.; as far as I’m concerned, it’s a top-notch, hip rock ’n’ roll band. Come early to catch Austin bluesman Seth Walker, a master of rootsy subtlety.
