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.

Achiote's pan-Latino menu promises more than it delivers, but the roast pork with yellow rice is succulent and the homey rice pudding satisfying. Terrace seating on the River Walk is pleasant. -- Ron Bechtol (08/08)

All right, so it isn't the most glamorous place to chow down. But inside the retro-façade, the men inside Burger Boy churn out the damn tastiest burgers in San Antonio. They aren't particularly thick, or enormously big, but there is a world of flavor in each mouthful: a potent beefiness that the likes of McDonald's have made us all forget. Complementing the old-fashioned burger are french fries that look like they came out of your childhood cafeteria, but these Ore-Ida knockoffs are crunchy, salty, and guiltily addictive. - Laura Fries

The weekends feature live music that can be enjoyed on the patio directly across from the Witte Museum.
Eat, drink and be barry.
The best coffeehouse is Candlelight Coffeehouse, which stands out not only for its divine java, but also for its couches, cats, and wine. Its only drawback is that it doesn't open until 4 p.m., which in coffee terms, is about the time to drink decaf unless it's the weekend. On the other hand, it's the perfect time for wine.
Canyon Cafe has a great atmosphere and is a fun place to drink.
After serving home-cooked Italian food at their Nacadoches location for 30 years, Gay Capparelli closed the doors when the building was condemned. But the very next day, Capparelli's on Broadway opened and is still run by Gay's father. She is now the sole owner of Capparelli's on Main (which opened May 1, 2001), and she thought it appropriate to ask some of her most faith-ful patrons to add their art to the new establishment. Gay Capparelli's gracious attitude and the restaurant's fine food encourage return visits. The highly affordable lunch specials are perfect not only for the penny pincher but also the late luncher. - Xelena Gonzalez
Tasty dishes, good service.
Tex-Mex soul food for the hungry and despondent. Cha Cha's brags on one of the most extensive margarita lists in Texas and an indoor grotto. The Aqui! Sports Cantina caters to Spurs fans while Scrubs Night favors the Zach Braff crowd with $5 margaritas, which will help you rock out the bilingual karaoke.
Sports bar with anything-but-small TVs and descent, affordable food.
Archaically named, yes. But the folks behind the Macho knew what they were doing when they named their infamous burger. Arteries of steel are needed to tackle the enormous beef and cheddar fusion. Whether man or woman, you need a healthy dose of can-eat machismo to stare down that much meat and cheese, and tell yourself, "I'm going to eat it all." Sissies and mama's boys need not apply. - Laura Fries
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.
