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.

Come down and enjoy our late night hours or stop by and pick up your specialty order. Owned, operated, and made with love by Sisters April & Ashley.
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.

Although not normally found under the same roof, Thai and Filipino foodstuffs are like ebony and ivory at this local Asian market.

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.
Screw that cowardly Game of Thrones crap, “King of the Surf Guitar” Dick Dale crowned himself the honest way: He straight-up invented that shit. Incorporating Middle Eastern scales into R&B and playing his flipped-over, reverse-stringed guitar with inhuman speed, Dale recreated the soundtrack he heard riding the waves, first with 1961’s “Let’s Go Tripping” (so early in rock ‘n’ roll history nobody thought to freak out over the title) and most famously with “Miserlou,” the song so entwined in Pulp Fiction’s DNA Tarantino should’ve given him a co-writing credit. In the Age of Heroes (before modern medicine), His Highness would’ve long since passed into legend, but fortunately the 76-year-old has bested cancer twice so he may continue brandishing his battle ax. Loyal local followers King Pelican—whose latest offering The Good, the Bad and the Reverb is well worth a listen—will test the waters first.
Inkwell Studio unveils works by local artists Gilbert Duran, Katherine Rogers, Cindy Palmer, Zag Memar and Roma Sandoval at a Fiesta-inspired reception with performances by flamenco dancer Jackie Rodriguez-Navar and guitarist Steve Arispe, wine, hors d’oeuvres and photography by Daniela ZaaZaa Riojas.
In addition to her work with New York’s “Sistas Doing Comedy” and the LA-based “Hot & Spicy Tamales,” “former Brooklyn project girl” Sara Contreras was showcased by Showtime’s Alma-nominated The Original Latin Divas of Comedy and counts Law & Order: SVU and Third Watch among her acting credits.
Trinity's Department of Philosophy hosts Dr. Jay D. Atlas, professor of philosophy and linguistics at Pomona College, for a free, one-hour public talk in the Chapman Center Auditorium. Atlas' presentation "There Are No Metaphors: Analytic Philosophy and the Literal/Metaphorical Distinction" will shed light on the distinction between metaphorical and literal discourse.
Save for Fashion Week San Antonio and Una Noche en la Gloria’s eccentric Runway en la Calle (which moves this year to coincide with Diez y Seis de Septiembre celebrations), solid fashion shows are pretty scarce in these parts, which makes the official Fiesta event The Cutting Edge all the more enticing. Launched in 1980 and presented by University of the Incarnate Word Fashion Management students, the runway show represents a year of work—including sketching, pattern-making, fittings and critiques. Students handle every aspect of show production, from the booking of models to the lighting design. Highlighting six outfits from each young designer’s collection, The Cutting Edge firstly functions as a showcase of emerging talent but also offers an optional luncheon ($75), a silent auction and a raffle for vacation packages ($50).
At the time of her death in 1995, 23-year-old Grammy-winner Selena Quintanilla-Pérez was at the peak of her success. She had become the first female artist to achieve gold status with a Tejano album, her song “Fotos y Recuerdos” was No. 4 on Billboard’s Latin chart and she was poised to impress the English-speaking world with the crossover album Dreaming of You. In the media blitz surrounding her murder, The New York Times wrote, “With her pouting smile, suggestive clothing and theatrical command of a microphone, Selena was often described as the Madonna of the Mexican-American world and was an idol and heartthrob on both sides of the border.” Two weeks later, George W. Bush, then governor of Texas, declared her birthday (April 16) “Selena Day.” Rising to the bittersweet occasion of what would’ve been her 43rd birthday, Hi-Tones turns its weekly Bring Your Own Vinyl series into a tribute to the undisputed Queen of Tejano. Beyond the records fans bring to play, DJ Adlf will fill in the gaps of an inspiring career that started with Selena y Los Dinos—a relentlessly touring family band whose first recording was a Spanish-language version of Rick James’ funk classic “Super Freak.”
