The Riverwalk

It is really admirable what the City of San Antonio did with the Riverwalk area. It is definitely a long-term investment from the part of all who contributed and still contribute, but oh boy, it generates revenue like crazy. Even the Rivercenter Mall is more pleasant then your usual run-of-the-mill shopping center, and when the sun goes down, the restaurants alongside the river (not to mention the clubs) spring to life in literally minutes. We got extremely lucky: despite our little impromptu 2.5 hour afternoon nap after walking all day and thus not making reservations, we got a riverside table at Landry's Seafood by the Riverwalk. Seriously good food for our 5th anniversary dinner, and this from a foodie. The peoplewatching was also fun: the look on some folks' face when they were told that the wait is more than an hour long...Welcome to a true tourist spot, baby...

Next time you guys are going to S.A., drop me a line. We know every piece of that city from the infinite family visits. There's many a good restaurant in a few out of the way places.

Thanks for the offer; we specifically wanted to eat at the Riverwalk this time...you know, once in a lifetime experience what with the anniversary and stuff...:-) We definitely will return though, so we shall take you up on the offer.

hehe. When we went we dined at a little steak place (can't remember the name of it) and we had a new waitress. Who dropped a tray of drinks on my mom's head. It was absolutely hillarious. Poor girl. Most of the drinks hit the floor, but a few drenched my mom and one fell right in her purse. Luckily she had taken everything out of it except for her wallet (which was in her pocket) so her sunglasses and some keys got soaked but nothing was ruined.
