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.
29 Brix is no longer open. It has been recast as an upscale Mexican cantina.

A Tempo is the fourth iteration of this restaurant in search of an identity. Talented chefs have come and gone, leaving a few dishes in their wake—some of which work. Most of the restaurant space does not.
Ácenar is not Mi Tierra with a snazzier paint job. With the exception of some slick color photos of nibbled galletas, paletas, and dulces - and maybe the noise level - there's not much at all in the highly charged interior that suggests Tex-Mex, classic or contemporary. In fact, the clever use of a molcajete grid on the patio takes us back to a much earlier era.
The same might be said for the menu: It's divided into San Antonio Tex-Mex Favorites and Ácenar Specialties, and it's not clear at first glance whether the SA favorites are alleged to be updated, or if all the tweaking took place in the specialties section. An appetizer such as the house-smoked salmon nachos with discrete black beans and dill crema looks much like the classic cosa, but the taste is altogether otra. And it works, despite the rarity of both dill and smoked salmon in any Mexican kitchen, traditional or Tex. - Ron Bechtol
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)
Award-winning Mediterranean-Lebanese-American franchise offering falaffel, fresh soups daily, hummos, baba, salads, shiskebobs, rolled pitas, large selection of vegetarian menu.
Good food, cold beer, reasonable prices and portions. Food trailers have finally come to Southtown, and it was worth the wait.
Aldaco's Stone Oak outpost remains true to its downtown roots with fresh, flavorful Mex and signature treats, including the avocado margarita and pastel tres leches. -- Ron Bechtol (02/09)
Well, OK. It's a strip club. But it does have a damn tasty buffet.
Beautiful garden setting with peacocks and Asain phesants roaming the grounds. Diverse menu apealing to all tastes with an array of desserts and specialty drinks.
Great seafood at moderate prices.

With the opening of Athens Greek Xpress, City Hall employees (and others) may have to get used to paying a little more, but they will also be getting far healthier food in a shiny-bright environment with pleasant, quick service.
With oysters on the menu and a wine bar out back, Augie's is not your average "Q" joint. Go for the pork ribs and brisket, and stay for the rest.
Finally, a bona fide Moroccan restaurant has arrived, bringing the sophisticated tastes of Casablanca to the North Side. Try the savory harira soup, meat-filled brewat rolls, and seafood bastilla- wrapped in delicate pastry leaves. A house specialty — the Meshoui, roast lamb shanks braised in a rich eggplant, tomato, and zucchini.

More than a decade after its Broadway debut, the Tony-winning musical Wicked is still riding a wave of hype soon to play out in a film adaptation reportedly starring Lea Michele (Glee) and Harry Styles (One Direction). Based not on L. Frank Baum’s The Wonderful Wizard of Oz but Gregory Maguire’s loaded remix Wicked: The Life and Times of the Wicked Witch of the West, the box office record-breaker explores the backstories of sharp, green-skinned Elphaba and bubbly blonde Glinda—polar opposite roommates at Shiz University. In a story for The New York Times, Daniel Handler (aka Lemony Snicket) noted civil rights violations in Munchkinland, yellow bricks laid by slave labor and flying monkeys (subjects of a disastrous experiment) as hallmarks of this “two-act flashback of radical reinterpretation.”
Likened to Patsy Cline by producer Gordon Raphael, 17-year-old, Texas-based French singer-songwriter Victoria Celestine celebrates the release of her new CD Back Home in San Antone with a concert featuring Juanito Castillo and an after-party with Zydeco Blanco.
For a 17 year-old, Texas-born French singer-songwriter Victoria Celestine has already racked up some impressive credits. Back in 2010, Celestine caught the attention of producer Gordon Raphael (the Strokes, Regina Spektor), who later worked with her on seven acoustic tracks. While still 14, Celestine mixed elements of country, pop and folk on her debut From the Outside. Reviewing the album for the Current, Enrique Lopetegui applauded the pianist/guitarist’s songwriting chops, likening her voice to “Norah Jones on chamomile tea.” (Raphael commented on the review: “I totally think she is a super talent, and as musically ambitious as anyone I have met!”). In celebration of her sophomore effort Back Home in San Antone, Celestine performs at Sam’s with a full band featuring Juanito Castillo, Randy Reinhart and Ron Knuth. Zydeco Blanco plays the after-party.
Among the recent (alleged) highlights from the Sun Sentinel’s weird-news blog FloriDUH: a woman who called 911 to sexually proposition a cop, a man arrested for smoking marijuana in a maternity ward and a man who made a bomb threat while being transported in an ambulance. What is going on with the state Patton Oswalt calls “America’s drooping nut sack”? Maybe this Contemporary Art Month event at High Wire can help explain. Following a feast of the traditional stewed-palm-heart delicacy swamp cabbage, High Wire will present two other Sunshine State treats named after the dish: a short-subject documentary on Florida “crackers” (the actual name for the state’s first European settlers) and a performance by a Jacksonville-based blues-rock band with songs such as “Purdy Mouth,” “Poontang” and “More Booty With Buddha.” BYOBS (Bring Your Own Bath Salts).
If B-movie star Bruce Campbell had his own late night talk show, Calabrese would be the house band (and I’d totally watch that over Fallon’s Tonight Show). The Italian-American brothers Calabrese funnel their fascination with horror flicks, comic books and the occult into straightforward punk rock that’s sometimes called Gothabilly, and more generally known as horror rock. Calabrese seems perfectly content to be pigeon-holed—though their musical talent hints at broader potential—with album titles like 13 Halloweens, The Traveling Vampire Show, Dayglo Necros and their latest, 2013’s Born with a Scorpion’s Touch. Like Campbell, they seem at once to be in on the joke and to embrace it fully, one early song’s lyrics were entirely comprised of 1950s “creepshow” film taglines. And for a band that sings almost exclusively about vampires, motorcycles, zombies and vigilante justice, they’re weirdly wholesome. Typically, my first reaction to the lyrics “I’ll smash in your teeth and your mouth will explode,” isn’t “aw, how sweet!”
