It is a dslr camera, with 24-105 mm lens at 40mm focal length. “When I saw the boat carrying tourists from all over the world, their curious eyes, the church in the background, I just loved the view and felt emotionally related­—that was when I took this photo.” RIO Magazine is the official publication of the Paseo Del Rio Association.

EDITOR’S LETTER

Murphy’s St. Patrick’s Day River Parade & Festival, March 17 & 18. TheSanAntonioRiverWalk.com

WOULD YOU TAKE PARENTING ADVICE FROM A JEDI MASTER?

The Official Magazine of the River Walk

PUBLISHER

How about San Antonio advice from RIO Magazine’s writer experts?

Louis Doucette Louis@travelingblender.com

It took Kids & Family feature writer, Carole Miller, to make me understand the fascination with Stars Wars. She penned a compelling story in this month’s issue of RIO about the importance of passing on what you know and learning about the world around us – all from a Jedi wisdom perspective.

EDITOR

Actually, what she wrote was an ingenious story encapsulating what RIO Magazine is all about. Each month we strive to share with you all that San Antonio has to offer. For example, Johnnie de la Garza is a noted local blogger with a big following. Her knowledge of restaurants and bars is unparalleled. Her coverage of Food & Drink is insightful and spot-on. She takes us to iconic eateries and watering holes and to places where the locals hang, and everything in between.

Paula Schechter editor@paseodelrio.com BUSINESS MANAGER

Vicki Schroder Vicki@travelingblender.com ADVERTISING SALES

It’s a coup for all of us that local writing legend Susan Yerkes graces our pages with her beautiful and astute coverage of the Arts & Entertainment scene. This month she demystifies Contemporary Art, and just in time for a month long celebration.

San Antonio:

Shopping enthusiast Angela Rabke covers her monthly beat with a genuine passion that is so convincing it’s hard not to walk in her shopping footsteps as soon as you put the magazine down. Michele Stanush, RIO’s Health & Recreation journalist strives to deliver a dose of recreational wisdom not found in any pharmacy, it’s called fun!

Gerry Lair gerry@travelingblender.com

For this month’s History & Culture feature, we are honored to have noted River Walk historian, Lewis F. Fisher, share insights of the PBS special Ten Parks That Changed America, which of course includes yours truly, the River Walk.

Irish Mule at Landry’s

ST. PATRICK’S DAY IS SYNONYMOUS WITH HAVING A GOOD TIME. IRISH WILL CLAIM BRAGGING RIGHTS TO GOOD FOOD, BEER, SPIRITS AND THEIR LOVE OF FESTIVE MUSIC THAT WILL KEEP TOES TAPPING UNTIL THE WEE HOURS OF THE MORNING. SAN ANTONIO HAS ITS SHARE OF IRISH PUBS AND EATERIES WHERE EVERYONE CAN ENJOY BEING AN HONORARY IRISHMAN FOR AT LEAST A WEEK. THE ST. PATTY’S PARTY GOES NONSTOP ON THE RIVER WALK AND DOWNTOWN. SO, GRAB YOUR LUCKY CHARM AND LET THE GOOD TIMES ROLL ON THE RIVER. The Irish certainly know how to have a good time, and as they say at Durty Nelly’s Irish Pub, “unless you are a stuffed shirt or a prude, you can’t help but have a good time at Durty Nelly’s Pub”. This replica of the original Durty Nelly’s in Ireland has been a River Walk fun zone since 1974. For some of the best authentic pub grub in San Antonio this is the place to be. Here Irish stout brews pair with good stick-to-your-ribs pub dishes like fish & chips and shephard’s pie. For a great St. Patrick’s Day meal, they will be featuring a corned beef and cabbage plate with oven-roasted potatoes and Guinness Chocolate Cupcake with Bailey’s cream cheese frosting available St. Patty’s Day weekend, March 10 RIO Magazine

17-19. Wash it all down with a Blonde Guinness green beer. Irish eyes will certainly be smiling even without a lick of Leprechaun blood in ya! And there is live piano entertainment every afternoon until closing, so come belt out those favorite Irish tunes with friends. Durty Nelly’s will be having a beer garden celebration on St. Patrick’s Day, outside of the pub. There will be lots of green beer and Durty Nelly’s apparel for sale. Another Irish Pub located right on the River Walk is Waxy O’Connor’s. Waxy’s is considered a modern Irish Bar with kitchen fresh food, crafted cocktails and beers.

Redfish with oysters at Landry’s

Waxy’s is authentically Irish from the furniture, artwork and lighting to the stones in the patio. It’s all from the Emerald Isle. Waxy’s is a fun place to hang with friends and family or make new friends over a beer and a story. This is the place to have a good time, eat some modern Irish food like the juicy, fork-tender Corned Beef & Cabbage with creamy parsley sauce and savor a 20-oz. pint of Guinness. There is also a good selection of American bar food, for those who don’t want to venture away from the good old USA. Their new menu offers vegetarian, vegan and gluten selections to keep everyone happy and healthy. At Landry’s Seafood, a Texas Gulf Coast Seafood legend, expect some of the freshest bounty from the warm Gulf waters. Diners get a bird’s eye view of the river from either a patio or inside table. Be assured, at Landry’s, seafood always gets top billing. This St Patrick’s day they are celebrating the Irish with specialty dishes using seasonal fresh seafood alongside Irish drinks. The fried Redfish & Oyster combo topped with their outstanding Pontchartrain sauce made with a lump blue crab and mushrooms in a white wine cream is always a crowd pleaser. This dish will surly scratch the seafood itch. For some Irish flair, order an Irish Mule. This libation’s main ingredient is Jameson Irish Whiskey. Jameson is an award-winning blended true Irish Whiskey. Enjoy this mint garnished liquid refreshment while listening to smooth jazz under the cool breeze of the ceiling fans and start whistling an Irish tune.

And let’s not forget about Mad Dogs British Pub located directly on the River Walk under the Hyatt Regency Hotel They may be British, but they are paying homage to their neighbors to the west for the whole month. There may not be sightings of four leaf clovers here, however there will be some food specials that will have you clicking your heels. The Irish Nachos made with fresh fried potato crisps smothered with Irish corned beef, Guinness beer cheese, sour cream and green onions is definitely not a Mexican cantina version. Also on special is the Ruben Sandwich with that Irish corned beef piled high. Look for regular British pub classics as well like the Bangers and Mash served with three sausages atop a mound of mashed potatoes topped with onions and brown gravy. Or a tribute to the Scots with Scotch Eggs. This starter begins with hard boiled eggs which are wrapped in ground pork then coated with bread crumbs and fried crispy. They come with Mad Dog’s special honey Dijon dressing for dipping. During St Patty’s weekend the Irish drink specials will be stout, green and delicious. Think Irish Harp Lager, green Margaritas and Dublin Slammers, half a Guinness with a drop shot of Bailey’s and Jameson Irish Whiskey...Slainte!

¡Bienvenidos a San Antonio

donde el arte está vivo!

(Welcome to San Antonio where art is life!) By Susan Yerkes

This is the nation’s only month-long celebration of the hottest trends in art, and more than 50 museums, galleries, studios and performing arts spaces join in the creative display.

The Dreaming Aboriginal Art and Culture at SAMA

18 RIO Magazine

Theirs is no better time to explore the culturally rich arts scene in San Antonio than March during the 30th annual Contemporary Arts Month, or CAM. This is the nation’s only month-long celebration of the hottest trends in art, and more than 50 museums, galleries, studios and performing arts spaces join in the creative display. The festivities get started in earnest March 2 with the big CAM Kick-Off bash, from 6-9 p.m. at Blue Star Contemporary Museum, in the ultra-hip Blue Star Complex on the banks of the San Antonio River, just south of the elegant, historic King William District. More than 1,000 art fans are expected at this free public party, where music, food trucks and cool art exhibits in the museum and surrounding galleries set the celebratory stage. The San Antonio Museum of Art (SAMA), housed in a magnificently repurposed old brewery, gets in the swing of CAM on March 10 with one of its popular al fresco cocktail parties, Star Dreaming, a nod to the museum’s current show of contemporary Australian aboriginal art, Of Country and Culture. Live music, gallery tours, art-making activities and creative libations by the iconic Esquire Tavern promise a memorable evening. SAMA’s collection is well worth another visit or two, from the extraordinary collections of Mexican folk art and Modern and Contemporary Latin American art to Asian, classical Greco-Roman, Egyptian and American art. A current exhibit of works by Julian Onderdonk, one of Texas foremost Expressionists, features sweeping Hill

Country landscapes and the iconic Texas bluebonnet. This year’s CAM Perennial show, Reflections of Landscape and Memory, features 15 of the city’s brightest rising art stars. The exhibit is at the Southwest School of Art, housed in and adjacent to a beautifully restored 19th-century Ursuline convent downtown. It opens with a free public reception on March 10. The next night, March 11, marks the opening reception for CAMx, a cooperative exhibit between artist Alex Rubio’s R Space gallery on trendy South Flores (the So-Flo district) and the Laundromat gallery in Miami. These and many more CAM events, including a citywide Open Studio day March 19 and the month’s big finale, the CAMMIE Awards, are all listed online at contemporaryartmonth. com/calendar. If you don’t make it to a single CAM event, there’s plenty of cool contemporary art right on the River Walk and just beyond. Take a tour starting with the bright red, eye-catching Torch of Friendship, smack dab in the middle of the heart of downtown, in front of the Hilton Palacio del Rio Hotel and the Convention Center. Take a stairway down to the cool, dappled shade of the River Walk, and stroll or catch a river taxi to the Museum Reach. Beautiful artist-designed structures grace the bridges over the river, and an amazing selection of art pieces, from light and sound installations to a whimsical grotto and a school of giant, illuminated fish floating on air, turn this stretch of the river into a living contemporary art show. thesanantonioriverwalk.com

If you like your art a little more traditional, there’s a treasure trove to be found at the McNay Art Museum, where Monet to Matisse: A Century of French Moderns opens March 1. This show, from the Brooklyn Museum, is a breath-taking look at the early movements of modern art – Impressionism, Fauvism, and Cubism, from some of the greatest artists of their day. Another show, Klee at the McNay, featuring the wildly imaginative watercolors, drawings and prints of this modern master, opens March 2. March 4 and 5 the McNay hosts its annual Print Fair, the only event of its kind in the Southwest, where dozens of dealers bring watercolors, drawings and photographs, from old master prints to contemporary works, to show and sell. It’s a great opportunity to look, learn – and possible, to start your own collection. The McNay, housed in the splendid mansion of its philanthropic founder, is also one of the most beautiful settings on earth for a stunning selfie. No matter when you visit, you’re sure to see at least a couple of groups in fancy dress or bridal attire posing for formal portraits on the beautifully landscaped grounds.

del Rio Association to transform the San Antonio River to the River Shannon with gallons of eco-friendly green dye. This “performance art” has been “temporarily” going-on since 1969. Finally, if you’re looking for Texas legend and lore, there’s one more place you may enjoy – Under the same roof are the Buckhorn Saloon and Museum and the Texas Ranger Museum on downtown’s Houston Street. The Buckhorn has one of the most impressive – and often weird – collections of mounted and stuffed wild animals anywhere. Included at the Buckhorn is a dubious yet impressive stuffed “Texas Chupacabra.” The legendary creature got its’ name meaning “goat-sucker,” because it preyed on livestock, attacking and drinking their blood, especially goats. So if you believe in the existence of the Loch Ness Monster and Bigfoot then Chupacabras are right up your alley. The question remains, is this manifestation of urban legend or contemporary art? You decide. Art, after all, is in the eye of the beholder.

Celebrations in San Antonio are an art form unto themselves. March 17 and 18, thousands of happy revelers gather downtown to paint the town green in honor of St. Paddy. Besides parades, Irish food and fancy and plenty of good old Irish ale, the city’s venerable Harp and Shamrock Society join with the Paseo

WHAT IS CONTEMPORARY ART? Different folks define “contemporary art” in different ways. To some, it indicates work by living artists. To others, work produced in “our lifetime” – which, of course, varies by individual. One of the first formal uses of the phrase came in 1910, when the Contemporary Art Society was founded in London. Contemporary Art is always on the move. Originally, it developed out of modern, and then post-modern art. Modernism as a movement arose in the 19th and early 20th century, and marked a change from figurative art to art evoking an idea, or essence. Today, many art historians define Contemporary Art as art produced in the 21st Century, but that, too, will eventually change.

Loads of embroidered apparel guarantees that there is something for everyone in your family, including beautiful items in toddler sizes, and knit sweaters and ponchos for cool nights. This is also the perfect spot to pick up a guayabera, the traditional men’s button down shirt, and available in every color and size imaginable. Amol’s, located at 710 S Flores St., also has a dizzying array of Fiesta-themed décor, and the family-owned business is known for its great prices. San Antonio residents delight in colorful door wreaths, and their cornhusk flower wreaths will welcome spring for years to come. Amol’s is also a great spot to prepare for another local spring tradition: cascarone eggs. Locals buy these confetti filled eggs by the dozen for parties, and they are a special treasure for little ones. Packed into traditional egg cartons, these lightweight novelties are a guaranteed hit for travelers looking to bring home a gift for kids. If you are looking to make a more serious investment in your Fiesta-themed apparel, visit the historic Pearl Brewery.

When PBS broadcast its national special “10 Parks That Changed America” last spring, it marked a sort of coming of age for San Antonio’s River Walk. It was as significant, in its own way, as the Spurs winning their first NBA championship. For decades we’ve been used to hearing rave comments on the beauty and uniqueness of our River Walk. We’ve done no small amount of self-congratulating on the subject, sometimes with the nagging feeling that there were those in the outside world who didn’t really think we were all that. Too often the materials and videos we’ve sent out or that outsiders have filmed here were of the gee-whiz variety, long on boat rides and arched bridges and parades on the water and short on meaningful perspectives that would provide the credibility thoughtful outsiders need to make honest assessments.

River Park

The PBS program got it right. Produced by PBS affiliate WTTW in Chicago, the show was more than two years in the making. Most importantly for us, the River Walk made the list. The nation got five minutes of the most carefully filmed, choreographed and balanced production work that, I believe it is safe to say, has ever been devoted to the River Walk. Given the incisive, penetrating selection process and the caliber of parks that were left out, making the list was a big deal. Each park had to have pioneered some significant

History & Culture

The San Antonio River Walk

form of urban design that would be widely emulated. The River Walk ranked with the Squares of Savannah in Georgia; Fairmount Park in Philadelphia; Mt. Auburn Cemetery in Cambridge, Massachusetts; Central Park in New York City; Chicago’s neighborhood parks in Illinois; Overton Park in Memphis, Tennessee; Freeway Park in Seattle; Gas Works Park in Seattle; and the High Line in New York City. I can attest to the care that went into the making of the program. On the strength of my authorship of American Venice: The Epic Story of San Antonio’s River, I was asked to join the TV crew on a chartered boat circling the central River Walk off and on for nearly five hours, all mercifully edited down to maybe a minute and a half of airtime. Putting the River Walk in such national perspective has no doubt been long overdue. One point made in the PBS show is that the River Walk shows how parks can be economically beneficial to a city, which raises the ongoing issue of balancing commercial aspects with the natural charm that makes the River Walk so appealing in the first place.

Design of the new riverboats will add a nice touch. There are other opportunities as well. The distinctive but separate characters of the Museum Reach and the Mission Reach offer the original River Walk an opportunity to position itself even more as architect Robert Hugman’s historic creation, perhaps enhancing its distinctive character by reinstalling features like the colorful gondola tie-up poles, Craftsmanstyle lights and underwater illuminations that have been lost through the years or were never completed. In the meantime, if you missed the landmark PBS program it can still be accessed in whole or in individual park segments by pasting this URL in your browser: http://interactive.wttw.com/ten/parks. You might even want to forward it to friends as proof of the real significance of our River Walk.

Lewis F. Fisher’s book American Venice: The Epic Story of San Antonio’s River, has received the San Antonio Conservation Society Publication Award. He and the other award-winning authors will be honored on Friday, March 24, 2017 at a booksigning and award ceremony, open to the public. His newest book, Unbranded: The Maverick Family and How it Changed the English Language, will be published in the fall by Trinity University Press.

EXERCISE YOUR BIRTHRIGHT By Michele Stanush

TO DANCE

Salsa Night at Jazz

30 RIO Magazine thesanantonioriverwalk.com


Adelle Brewer began studying ballet at age four. “I thought my instructor was the oldest, most beautiful person I had ever seen,” Brewer recalls. “I came home after my first class and announced to my mother, ‘I am going to own a place when I grow up where everybody can dance, no matter how old!” Today, Brewer teaches dance, including Nia, a creative healing movement combining dance, martial arts, and yoga. It’s a centerpiece offering at The Synergy Studio, 300 E. Grayson St. in the Pearl, 5 minutes from downtown. “The word ‘dance’ intimidates many people,” says Brewer. “People think they have two left feet, or they can’t keep a beat. But it’s our birthright to dance.” You see it more and more these days. Entire bodies frozen, with the exception of thumbs and index fingers, which dance with remarkable alacrity around a little handheld screen. In San Antonio it’s easy to exercise your birthright to dance and get your entire self M-O-V-I-N-G! The spirit of dance is celebrated everywhere, from backyards, gyms and community centers to nightclubs, restaurants and parks. With a little sleuthing, you can find cool venues, events, and classes all over. What follows is just a sampler of downtown dancing, plus a salute to historic outlying dance halls. ON THE RIVER WALK At The Republic of Texas restaurant – it’s “Night Club” Fridays and Saturdays with DJ Pete Rendon, who’s been mixing music of many genres there 33 years. Monday evenings there’s a live band.

Dance to the eclectic sounds of Grammy awardwinner Joe Posada and his band Friday and Saturday evenings at Landry’s Seafood Restaurant where Posada’s has played for 17 years. The name says it all: Howl at the Moon is a piano show bar with a live band all week. Dancing encouraged! There are two levels for dancing: first level, the Havana Ultra Lounge has a resident DJ Wednesday through Saturday nights; top level, Kremlin – billed as a local twist on an upscale “Vegas nightclub” – opens late Fridays and Saturdays. DOWNTOWN Hop up and shimmy at this restaurant/bar with a New Orleans vibe: Pat O’Brien’s, 121 Alamo Plaza. There’s a patio with live music; upstairs bar with a DJ; and piano bar. For Latin dancing to a live band late Fridays and Saturdays, check out Azuca Nuevo Latino restaurant, 709 S. Alamo St. In a Motown mood? Tucker’s Kozy Korner, 1338 E. Houston St., is a restaurant/bar with live music and DJs that is popular with locals. Overflowing with energy? The Bonham Exchange – in a historic building at 411 Bonham St. for 35 years -- is a high-energy, three-level club with DJs. Alternative lifestyles welcome.

DANCE YOUR WAY TO BETTER HEALTH & WELL-BEING Brewer references articles in publications such as Berkeley Wellness to cite the many benefits of dance.

A FEW MILES NORTH Famous for swing classes/dances most Monday evenings, Sam’s Burger Joint, 330 E. Grayson St., also hosts danceable acts throughout the week. For top-notch live South Texas music in many genres, the restaurant/club Jazz, TX, in the Pearl, is the popular “new kid on the block.” (So popular, you likely need reservations for evening shows.)

HISTORICAL DANCE SITES Dancing that celebrates Texas’ rural roots is not hard to find locally. But consider whirling across an old wood floor at a historic dance hall – the “real deal.” Martinez Social Club Dance Hall, 7791 FM 1346, is only 15 minutes or so east of downtown. Founded in 1912, mostly by Polish immigrants, the floor is vintage oak. About 45 minutes from downtown, in nearby New Braunfels, is the famous Gruene Hall, built in 1878 and Texas’ oldest continuously operating dance hall. Others are in outlying towns like Helotes, Twin Sisters, or Kendalia.

SAN ANTONIO FOLK DANCE FESTIVAL Friday, March 17-Sunday, March 19, times vary Less than ten minutes west of downtown-this 59th annual festival features workshops taught by world-renowned teachers — ­ plus parties and concerts Our Lady of the Lake University, 411 SW 24th Street http://safdf.org/index.php

Ride the Rio

On A Whole New Level. Imagine a place that towers overhead, even though it’s deep underground. A place filled with delicate formations of solid stone formed by single splashes of water. A place that’s eons old, but feels brand new every time you see it. From giant chambers that echo with mystery to passages with discovery around every bend, come see what makes Natural Bridge Caverns… Naturally AMAZING.

R ESTAU R AN T S

La Villita, south of the River Walk in downtown San Antonio, was originally settled nearly 300 years ago as one of the city’s first neighborhoods. In 1939, La Villita Historic Arts Village was established and the neighborhood was adapted into a center for teaching regional arts and crafts and to serve as an artists market. Today, nearly 30 shops and galleries offer distinct handcrafted items by artists from San Antonio and surrounding areas. You’ll find paintings, folk art, textiles, sculptures, copper wares, jewelry, and more. Plus, in the midst of these tree-lined walkways and plazas, enjoy a savory culinary experience at the area restaurants with options ranging from traditional Mexican flavors to steakhouse favorites.
