THE ROAD LESS TRAVELED

BUSINESS MANAGER

In my many years in the travel biz, I have discovered there are two kinds of travelers. The first, are those who plan a trip down to the smallest detail leaving no minute unaccounted. Tours booked in advance, hotel and restaurant reservations made, even time at the hotel pool is scheduled. The second is the spontaneous, fly-by-the-seat of their pants, come what may, easy-breezy kind of traveler. I am the latter. And I’ve found that the road less planned and traveled, allows for exploration of unimagined possibilities. It’s about coming across a pop-up gift shop downtown, watching street performers, a quiet morning run down a shady path or discovering a 100-year old restaurant that brews its’ root beer. To me, these are the unplanned joys of spontaneous travel. And yes, they all exist in downtown San Antonio. For those new at spontaneous travel, get a little inspiration at TheSanAntonioRiverWalk.com or VisitSA.com. Let this issue of RIO Magazine be your muse along with back copies posted on our website. I would enjoy hearing about your favorite “unplanned discovery” while in San Antonio. Please email editor@paseodelrio.com and include a photo! @TheSanAntonio RiverWalkOfficial @PaseoDelRio

Charlie Wants a Burger’s Nachos and ale

Surf n’ Turf Filet at Ruth’s Chris Steakhouse

Charlie Wants a Burger’s Cheeseburger and fries

They aren’t picky so much as they know what they like; and what they like is meat. It needs to be a man-sized portion and served with the right sides, paired with the adult beverage of choice. Father’s Day is simply not the time to mention waistlines or eating smart. Consider it a splurge day and let the whole family celebrate the big guy!

Is the way to a man’s heart really through his stomach? Yep, and because we also know men love to be celebrated, treat him to a meal he will enjoy. Dining out for dads is usually simple. thesanantonioriverwalk.com

Open for both lunch and dinner seven days a week; The County Line Riverwalk is a great choice to satisfy a man’s craving for reallygood barbecue. The meat choices are almost endless with enough on a plate to fill any guy up and maybe have some leftovers to take home. Maybe! This BBQ place, located on the river, features patio tables so close to the water one can hear riverboat tour guides spinning tales about the city. Pop will probably want to order a little of everything so the

sampler platter will do the trick. With sausage, beef & pork ribs, smoked turkey breast and brisket one can try them all plus two sides. If the whole family is on board, the family style “all you can eat” is a better deal with five types of meat, served with three sides, plus their famous homemade bread and ice cream. County Line has a nice selection of locally bottled beers to compliment all that BBQ. Perhaps pop would prefer a sophisticated meal with his adult children or just his wife? Fine dining on the River Walk doesn’t get much better than Ruth’s Chris Steak House. Ruth’s Chris is quite simply the place to find a serious steak on the River Walk. Selected from the finest USDA Prime beef, their steaks are aged to perfection and cut by hand. Every serving of steak is juicy, tender and sizzling. In fact, if it isn’t sizzling, send it back! Start the evening with a cocktail from the sizzle, swizzle and swirl menu. The Gambler’s Old Fashioned with Knob Creek Bourbon or the Ruth’s Manhattan with Knob Creek Bourbon, sweet vermouth and topped off with an Italian Amerena cherry are both top selections. For

dinner, maybe the five-ounce lobster tail stuffed with succulent crabmeat and garlic herb sauce and Ruth’s famous eight-ounce filet served with a couple of sides like grilled asparagus and potatoes au gratin. Pair his meal with a full-bodied Cabernet Sauvignon like Faust which is a tribute to Napa Valley’s noblest grape. Ruth’s Chris award-winning wine list features over 200 labels from all over the world. This meal is fit for a king and a dad! Charlie Wants a Burger, and so does dear ‘ole dad! Charlie’s Juicy Lucy is one of the top requested burgers on their menu. This burger is a cheese lover’s dream. It’s stuffed with American cheese then topped with both American & Cheddar. Crown it with an egg, and now it’s in manly overdrive, but allow some extra time for this one to cook! For something less exotic, the Classic Cheeseburger with the usual trimmings is also sure to please. All burgers are ½ pound certified fresh Angus beef, never frozen. The Man Cave Nachos comes loaded, but don’t worry, daddy can add more stuff if need be. Pair any of these with a craft beer or a boozy milkshake. Charlie’s menu includes salads and wraps but who are we kidding? The kid-friendly menu will please little ones in the family. If Dad is an early bird, Charlie’s also serves a pretty awesome breakfast starting at 7:30 a.m. Everything from eggs and tacos to old-fashioned waffles with OJ or IPA to sip on. For the ultimate experience, dine on their riverside patio which is canine friendly. After all, dog is man’s best friend. What does a Dad like more than food? Sports of course! Take him to a place where he can catch all the sports imaginable from NASCAR to football. Tex’s Riverwalk Sports Bar has it all, so there’s no missing any game anywhere. And the menu has all his favorites too, like, wings, burgers, and nachos. With a selection of Texas beers and mad margaritas, guys are sure to find something they like to wash it all down. Tex’s is offering Dads a 1 pound bacon cheeseburger with lettuce, tomato, onions and French fries garnished with three black and tan onion rings for Father’s Day. The price for this manly meal will be at the regular burger price of $15.95. If they can eat the whole thing, they get a 50% discount off this special. (This special offer is good only on Father’s Day, June 16, 2017.)

Summertime and Kids & Family

By Carole Miller

Did you know you can go on an enchanted outing, embark on magical rides, take flight with the butterflies and even swim with the dolphins without ever leaving the Alamo City? Simply take some tips from Mary Poppins—the most magical caretaker ever—and enjoy your jolly summer ‘oliday with the whole family. SUPER (CALIFRAGILISTICEXPIALIDOCIOUS) ANIMAL ADVENTURES If the local mice and birds refuse to cooperate by helping you and the kids clean the nursery, there’s plenty of local wildlife just waiting to join your magical, Mary Poppins-style family adventures. Begin your merry animal adventures under-the-sea while swimming with the dolphins in a lush, tropical lagoon. During the new dolphin swim experience at Sea World San Antonio, families can interact with bottlenose dolphins while learning about dolphin behavior and communication as well as SeaWorld’s ongoing local and worldwide dolphin research and rescue efforts. After a brief classroom presentation, the entire family will don their SeaWorld-provided wetsuits and wade into Dolphin Lagoon for an experience with SeaWorld’s expert trainers that no one will ever forget. You can also walk (or use your magic umbrella if you happen to have one) over to Discovery Point, Sea World’s very first underwater viewing area with an unbelievable floor-to-ceiling, panoramic underwater view of the dolphins swimming and playing all around you. But Mary Poppins, as everyone knows, is not one to dilly-dally. And her next magical destination among the animals involves walking amongst giant bugs, being surrounded by billions of butterflies and getting gregarious with lorikeets, of course. Don’t worry—the bugs don’t bite! These larger-than-life animatronic bugs (some as big as 15-feet tall!) will be scattered throughout the San Antonio Zoo for Bug Mania! Or step into the zoo’s spectacular butterfly garden and find yourself surrounded by 30 different species of these beautiful, colorful creatures. You may just find they are just as curious as you! They are also quite approachable

and will rest on your head, arms or maybe even your nose as you stroll through the garden. The next place you will land on your delightful day is Lory Landing, an Australian rainforest full of colorful and gregarious small parrots known as lorikeets. Purchase a cup of nectar, and you will literally have them eating from your hand.

ANYTHING CAN HAPPEN IF YOU LET IT

One of Mary Poppins’ favorite things to do is, of course, ride the enchanted carousel at her favorite park in London. As luck would have it, San Antonio is also the home of a dazzling Mary-go-round. The Zootennial Carousel, located at the San Antonio Zoo, features 60 hand-painted animals native to Texas including the endangered whooping crane, white-tailed deer, Texas horned lizard and jackalope joined by a menagerie of real and imaginary animals. Two chariots, including a spinning “bird’s nest,” complete the kaleidoscopic collection. After your carousel adventures come to an end, hop on board the San Antonio Zoo Eagle, for a remarkable ride along the banks of the San Antonio River through Brackenridge Park. Stop at various points-of-interests in the park, have some lunch at the train depot café and grab a souvenir at the train depot gift shop.

For Mary Poppins more adventuresome charges, you can find some seriously eyePoppin’, jaw-droppin’ adrenaline racin’ action on Wave Breaker: The Rescue Coaster, the newest addition to SeaWorld San Antonio. Lean into a series of banked and serpentine turns and grip the handle bars as you race over air time humps and a pair of high acceleration launches on this unique, jet ski coaster that combines the thrill of the sea with the adrenaline rush of a roller coaster. Reach heights of up to 61-feet directly over the water and feel what it’s like to race alongside SeaWorld’s heroic animal care team as they spring into action at a moment’s notice to help rescue animals in distress.

LET’S GO FLY A KITE! Luckily for Mary Poppins, she can just shake off “swim hair” and continue to look fabulous. For everyone else, she insists everyone go straight to bed after so much excitement. For the next day, an outing to the park is most highly recommended. Naturally, you never know what will happen when Mary Poppins goes on an outing to the park but one thing is for sure—you can always expect the unexpected. Would you believe there are life-sized chess boards, giant visual and sound art displays, big, shady trees and places to splash around right, smack-dab in the middle of downtown? Mary Poppins undoubtedly does. The Yanaguana Garden located at Hemisfair Park includes more than four acres of nothing-but-playground for all ages and “ability levels.” The Pre-K Play has spinning bowls, a rotating net climber and toddler swings. The Games Plaza for older kids has ping pong tables, foosball, chess tables, a bocce ball court and oversized chess and checker pieces. And the Splash Pad is filled with bubbling jets of water and colorful lights and fun for everyone. Climb, crawl, swing, leap and slide your way into a day of fun complete with a picnic under a shady tree. Enjoy the cool evening temperature and take the family for an after-hours stroll through San Antonio Zoo. During Jungle Boogie Nights, the zoo stays open late so Mary Poppins and all the good little children can dance and sing to live music, visit local San Antonio arts and crafts vendors and enjoy food and drink specials throughout the zoo kingdom every Friday night. And after all that fun, it is most definitely time for everyone, even Mary Poppins, herself, to go to bed!

Practically perfect in every way, Carole Miller is a freelance writer who raised her three children (Sydney, 26, Nick, 21 and Faith, 18) right here in San Antonio. Her advice for summer fun involves a spoonful of sugar and a whole lot of sunscreen. thesanantonioriverwalk.com

FAMILY FUN TA K E S C E N T E R S TA GE

“All the world’s a stage” Shakespeare famously wrote in his comedy “As You Like It.” While there’s plenty to do off-stage in San Antonio, this month special stage performances geared to delight the young and young at heart.

Clockwise starting from left: Emperor’s New Threads at the Magik Theater; Harry Potter Film Concert Series; Magical Musical Matilda at the Majestic Theater.

HURRAY FOR HARRY “Harry Potter” creator J.K. Rowling is right up there with Shakespeare in the hearts of die-hard Harry fans. Now, in addition to books, movies, theme parks and even a Broadway play, the bespectacled young wizard and his friends (and enemies) from the Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry are center stage with symphony orchestras around the country. The new Harry Potter Film Concert Series is sure to be box office magic. “Harry Potter and the Sorcerer’s Stone” is in town this month featuring the acclaimed San Antonio Symphony performing every note of John Williams’ unforgettable score as the film plays in hi definition on a 40-foot high screen at the stunningly restored Majestic Theatre in the heart of downtown. Even with three performances, June 2 at 8pm and June 4 at 2 and 7 pm, tickets are a hot item, so don’t delay! Conjure up some magic and check out Ticketmaster quick! MAGICAL, MUSICAL MATILDA More musical delights for kids of all ages are in store at the Majestic this month. Next up comes Matilda Wormwood, another whimsical young character with some very special powers who has rocketed from the beloved books of Roald Dahl to movies and center stage on Broadway in “Matilda the Musical,” winner of four Tony Awards, and Time Magazine’s #1 Show of the Year. June 6-11, the National Broadway Tour of the show comes to the Majestic for eight magical, musical performances, sure to delight young and old alike with its sweet, zany fun. MAGIC AND MAGIK Magik Theatre is San Antonio’s premiere children’s theatre, and this month features two of their lively, colorful shows. June 1-3, check out “The Emperor’s New Threads-A Fashion Statement,” a groovy ‘60s take on the familiar favorite fairy tale. All three shows (at 9:45 am Thursday and Friday and 2 pm Saturday) are on Magik Theatre’s main stage, in downtown’s Hemisfair Park. The park is also home to the new Yanaguana Garden and Playground, which offers activities to warm a parents’ heart and gives kids a romping good time. Yanaguana Garden is open daily, but there are special events, too. June 2, from 7-9pm, there is a special free night of music, movement and culinary creativity at the circus-themed “Under the Big Top” event, starring stilt walkers, unicyclists, carnival games and more. June 3, check out the park for the monthly Super

Fun Saturday from 9-11 am, and then head to Magik next door for “The Emperor” show. And be sure to check Hemisfair’s website for more family fun throughout the month. Magik’s big June show features yet another delightful children’s book character brought to life onstage, straight from the pages of Barbara Parks’ best-selling “Junie B. Jones” book series. “Junie B. Jones: The Musical,” is so much fun, and such a hit that it takes two theatres to hold it all. The show premieres at the dazzling “music-box” gem of a restored theater, the Charline McCombs Empire Theatre, June 16-25. Then June 28-31, Junie and her

whimsical singing, dancing friends stage the show at Magik’s main campus in Hemisfair Park. This month, visitors and locals, especially those with kids who enjoy the wonder of live theater, might well say all San Antonio’s a stage – and all the plays are full of feisty fun! Susan Yerkes is an award-winning San Antonio journalist, freelance writer and world traveler. She treasures her expired Actors’ Equity card, and memories of her first stage appearance as a dancing mushroom. She is not, repeat NOT, a drama queen.

All the plays are full of feisty FUN!

Stages for All Ages

Kids aren’t the only ones with theatrical treats to look forward to in June. There are popular performances a-plenty at the Tobin Center for the Performing Arts, from sell-out entertainers like Patti LaBelle and Melissa Etheridge to Boz Skaggs. But some special “sleeper” shows sure to delight are also on tap at the Tobin this month. Here’s a sampling:

TRAVIS WALL SHAPES SOUND “Shaping Sound “comes to the Tobin Center’s H-E-B Performance Hall on June 6. You may not recognize the dance troupe’s name, but you’ll probably recognize Travis Wall, one of the nation’s top choreographers and an Emmy-winner for his work on “So You Think You Can Dance?” Wall is artistic director for the group, now touring with their brand-new show, “After the Curtain,” a heart-breaking, uplifting and stunningly choreographed story in music and dance.

SYMPHONY JOINS THE CIRCUS The high-flying acrobats of Cirque de la Symphonie are in town June 9-11, joining forces with the acclaimed San Antonio Symphony to put on another spectacular show series at the Tobin Center. Aerialists, dare-devil cyclists, jugglers, contortionists and more stage their dazzling feats of wonder to live classical music performed by the symphony.

MUSIC WITH OMPAH Did you know that San Antonio has deep German roots? At the turn of the century, Germans were the largest segment of the population in town. And this year, the historic San Antonio Liederkranz, the largest and one of the oldest men’s German –language choirs in the U.S., celebrates tradition with a free family 125th Anniversary Concert at the Tobin Center. The New Braunfels Village Brass Band and a pianist will accompany the choir, and translations of all songs will be provided. The concert, set for 3 pm June 25, promises to be a unique and delightful family outing, with German songs from pop to opera and patriotic numbers.

Shopping Special jewelry always has a way of conjuring up old memories and taking us back to precious

HIDDEN GEMS By Angela Rabke

places and times. For this very reason, unique bracelets, earrings, charms and necklaces are perfect items to collect while traveling or commemorating special days. San Antonio is the ideal spot to find beautiful and handcrafted pieces. Artisans and craftspeople are drawn to the lively and warm atmosphere that thrives on the banks of the San Antonio River, and there are hidden gems (pun intended) at every turn. Here are a few of our favorites spots. Leighelena, located at the historic Pearl, offers a fantastic array of items like vintage western snap shirts, funky cowboys boots, and tongue-in-cheek gifts, but the shop is best known for its signature bracelets. Designed by native Texan Leigh Elena Navarro, the jigsaw cuffs and T-bar bracelets have been spotted on celebrities and magazine covers. The use of leather, lizard, and snakeskin in many of the pieces is puro San Antonio, and the modern designs fit with any wardrobe, whether you favor boots and T-shirts or are accessorizing a formal gown.

Wide Jigsaw Cuff at Leighelena

Just down the road, you will find the San Antonio Museum of Art. This San Antonio institution is obviously known for its treasure trove of ancient artifacts and stunning art exhibits. But savvy locals know that it’s also the perfect place to pop in and find rare books, gifts, and amazing jewelry by local and national artists. Moose Pablos Jewelry and Accessories create beautiful silver charms depicting the Alamo and our other World Heritage Missions, and they make a fitting keepsake or gift for travelers. Like all of the jewelry shining on the walls at SAMA, they are created with the attention to detail one expects to find at a world-class museum. San Antonio based artist Lorena Angulo’s work is also featured in the intimate shop. Angula’s specialty is metal clay wearable art, and pieces are also available in fine silver, bronze, and other various media. Outside of the fine jewelry cases, you will find a fun mix of affordable bangles, funky rubber necklaces, and teen and tween appropriate accessories mixed in with other artistic items. San Antonio’s La Villita Historic Arts Village is also renowned for its art, wearable and otherwise. In the late 1930’s, the village was established as a center for teaching arts and crafts, and for cultivating San Antonio’s blossoming art culture. Today, this charming area is home to nearly 30 shops and galleries, including many that specialize in jewelry. B&C Leather Designs and Unique Finds is one such location. The “B&C” stands for Bobby and Claudia Brown, the designers and owners behind the studio. Shopping at

B&C for their handcrafted items is much more than a simple shopping excursion—it’s an experience. The owners love to speak and interact with their customers, learn what they are looking for, and craft the item while they watch and wait. It’s an extremely personal experience for both the artists and the clients, and always results in an unforgettable accessory. The Browns recently opened a second store in La Villita called Villa Tesoros, where they carry clothing as well as an extensive collection of jewelry from all over the world. Angelita, also located in La Villita, is another unique San Antonio treasure. Named one of the ten best places to shop in San Antonio by USA Today, this warm and inviting space is the oldest import boutique in the Alamo city, and the owner and staff are equally charming—ready to chat as you peruse a colorful assortment of clothing, accessories, and jewelry. Their fantastic silver collection is quintessentially Texan, featuring famed Texas designer Dian Malouf’s large sterling pieces and imported jewels from all across the globe.

A visit to one of these sparkling local gems is sure to leave you with a memorable treasure, as well as a new story.

B&C Leather Design

The Equinox Gallery focuses entirely on fine metalwork, with a stunning and upscale collection of serious jewelry curated by owner and artist Alejandro Sifuentes. Featuring the work of over a dozen talented designers, the various collections answer to many different tastes, whether one is looking for a gorgeous strand of potato pearls, a colorful and modern hand made broach, or a delicate diamond and emerald dinner ring.

History & Culture

12,000 Years of Culture When Native Americans, the Payayan Indians, gathered around San Pedro Springs 12,000 years ago in their village they called Yanaguana, little did they know how many different cultures would one day call San Antonio home. By Denise Richter The UTSA Institute of Texan Culture’s Folklife Festival blazed the trail for celebrating these dynamic ethnic groups in the summer of 1972. This annual event features more than 40 cultural organizations from across Texas who proudly share their culture’s food, music, dance, art and customs with attendees. Enjoy sampling Greek baklava, Scottish haggis and Belgian waffles. Learn the ancient game of Chinese Mah Jong, watch Polish dancers, get down to Cajun music, and take in Scottish/Irish bagpipes and drums. The festival is one of the nation’s largest multi-cultural celebrations, embracing the many cultures that call the Lone Star State their home. These include Greek, Belgian, Native American, Wendish, Cajun, German, Scottish, Chinese, Spanish, Lebanese, Czech, Japanese, Indian and more. The three-day, family-friendly event is an extension of what the Institute does all year long. So even if you are not lucky enough to be in San Antonio from June 9-11 for this year’s Folklife Festival, you may still enjoy UTSA’s Institute of Texan Cultures throughout the year. Fiesta Noche del Rio is another summer tradition in San Antonio that serves up a lively dose of culture every Fiesta Noche del Rio courtesy of Alamo Kiwanis Friday and Saturday night at Club Charities, Inc. 8:30 p.m. through August 12. Soak up the performing arts at the beautiful Arneson River Theatre that is nestled on the banks of the San Antonio River in historic La Villita. The hour and a half show features seven acts with one intermission. This year’s family-friendly performances will take you on a virtual vacation via Spanish flamenco, Argentinian tango, romantic Latin music, Caribbean pop, Texas’ country, Mexican mariachi and folklorico dancers. Spanish Flamenco Guitarist Alejandro Antonio is a crowd favorite. He teaches the audience how to do flamenco palmas (hand claps) in a question 26 RIO Magazine

and answer format. Alejandro also plays the guitar while he does flamenco footwork, an incredible sight to see. The Alamo Kiwanis Club has been staging Fiesta Noche del Rio since 1957 to raise money for charities that benefit children in San Antonio. Admission is $20 for adults; $15 for seniors, active and retired military, and groups of 10 or more; $8 for kids ages 6-14; and kids 6 and under are free. Over the past 60 years, more than $2.75 million collected has helped kids at the Santa Rosa Children’s Hospital, the YMCA, Big Brothers Big Sisters, Any Baby Can, The Children’s Shelter and more. So not only will you be enjoying a culturally rich night on the town, you’ll also be helping San Antonio’s children. Speaking of children, Father’s Day falls on June 18, and Historic Market Square is the perfect place to celebrate and shop for dad’s big day from noon to 6 p.m. on June 17 and 18. Market Square, also known as El Mercado, is billed as the largest Mexican market outside of Mexico with more than 100 locally owned restaurants, shops and stalls housed on three city blocks. El Mercado, a favorite destination of locals, has been at this same location since the 1890s. The Father’s Day celebration will include traditional Mexican food favorites, such as gorditas, tripas, funnel cakes, and aguas frescas. DJs and track singers (Saturday) and a live Blues band (Sunday) will give the entire family a good excuse to cut loose. Cariño Cortez, the granddaughter of Mi Tierra Café y Panadería’s founders and a Culinary Institute of America-trained chef who runs Viva Villa, says her dad always worked on Father’s Day because Mi Tierra is 24/7/365. She would meet him at the restaurant for a meal and share the occasion with the many team members who were also fathers. Mi Tierra just celebrated its 75th year of giving San Antonio’s natives and visitors a taste of Mexico. www.thesanantonioriverwalk.com

Since the prevailing culture of the 21st century is a digital culture, The DoSeum’s Summer of Tech is just the thing for those who’d like for their kids to become the next Steve Jobs, Sheryl Sandberg or Mark Zuckerberg.

A Kids Coding Challenge will also take place, giving kids the zeros and ones they need to thrive in this digital age. Attendees will learn how to create mobile apps, multimedia, games, websites and robotics.

In the award-winning digiPlaySpace, children (and parents, grandparents, aunts and uncles) will be able to experience a virtual world, create a painting from their movements, learn about stop-motion animation, and fabricate something high-tech in The DoSeum’s maker space.

Summer Camps for kids interested in science, technology, engineering and math are also available at The DoSeum. Robotics, civil engineering, 3D printing, transportation and more will provide campers with 21st century tools so that they can learn how to use technology to have a positive impact on their community.

CONSIDER, IF YOU WILL, THIS LITHE AND LOVELY LITTLE WORD: “FLOW.” It can describe all kinds of interesting things, like the way blood courses through the body. Or the way dancers glide through space. Or the way yogis link breath with movement. In a bestselling book, “Flow: The Psychology of Optimal Experience,” flow is what happens when a person is so absorbed in an activity – often a challenging one -- that nothing else seems to matter. However you define “flow,” try this easy experiment. Pick out one part of your life­—say, your body or your psyche— and ask yourself: “Is it flowing?” NEED TO UNCLENCH? UNCLOG? UNPLUG? There are all kinds of ways to “find your flow” in the heart of San Antonio. We’ll give just a sampling here – places to help you experience at least one type of flow, or maybe even a combo-flow. (Note: If you’re new to yoga, check class descriptions. Start slow and gentle.) SOUTHTOWN YOGA LOFT: Located in heart of the arts district, just south of downtown, this premier studio has a wide and expanding menu of yoga classes and workshops. Among the regular offerings: Vinyasa, a fluid type of yoga often referred to as “flow”; Yin Yoga, great for a boost in energy flow; and a class called Run Your Asana, yoga melded with running through the streets of Southtown. Beginner classes—which help with basic poses and alignment—are Wednesdays at 6 p.m MOBILE OM: A creative community-minded undertaking that moves yoga “outside the box.” Many of Mobile Om’s classes are held in scenic locations around the center city: from bridges to breweries to rooftops. Class titles are full of flow, like Hip-Hop Flow and Flow & Joe. Mobile Om often partners with community organizations for sponsored events; one not to miss: Saturday, June 3, 9 a.m.-10 a.m., a FREE class at Mission San Jose, the “Queen of the Missions.” 5 POINTS LOCAL: A nourishing mix of yoga/movement studio and gluten-free restaurant/ coffee shop, this enterprise is housed just north of downtown, in a building more than 100 years old. Opened early last year, 5 Points Local offers numerous types of yoga, with an alllevel free “Friday Free Flow” from 6 p.m.-7p.m. Although most classes are beginner-friendly, a beginners yoga workshop will be Saturday, June 17, from noon- 2 p.m. Or, for a different kind of flow, consider the dance offerings: Improv Dance, which explores and plays with the body’s natural movement, and Ecstatic Dance, non-judgmental barefoot movement set to soulful music.

THE SYNERGY STUDIO: Located in The Pearl, a well-established studio hosting more than 150 classes a month in all kinds of movement practices, plus workshops and special events. Offerings include different types of yoga, including gentle/chair; Pilates; JourneyDance;

HoopDance; and more. But the fascinating, flow-inducing centerpiece offering is called “Nia.” Done barefoot, Nia blends aerobics, modern and jazz dance, martial arts, yoga and body integration therapy -- and was created to nourish mind, body and soul. There’s also now a NIA class for girls, ages 9-13. Special Synergy offerings this month include a Nia White Belt (Nia’s first training level) and a Summer Solstice drum/dance celebration.

SALSA LESSONS AT JAZZ, TX: Want to add a partner? Few things are more fun – and potentially flowing -- than partner dancing. Of course, it might take a bit of practice to keep from tangling up – or eliminating a couple of your partner’s toes. (Actually, the pre-flow learning can be part of the fun!) There are countless places in town to take dance classes, but here’s one of the newest and hippest venues: Jazz TX, also located in The Pearl. Check out their Saturday afternoon salsa lessons, hosted by Semeneya Dance Studio and Christopher Cook.

FITNESS IN THE PARK: If you’re on a budget, the City of San Antonio offers a dizzying array of free exercise and fitness classes -- including yoga, dance, and walking groups -- at locations all over the city, from parks to community centers. No registration needed; open to all levels of fitness. Downtown offerings tend to be a bit sparse, but among locations to search: Travis Park and the Commander’s House Adult and Senior Center.

OVERWHELMED BY ALL THE OPTIONS? GET SIMPLE.

Consider a leisurely – flowing -- stroll through Hemisfair, the evolving urban park in the south part of downtown. Ignore the construction zones and find your flow under shady oaks, by stretching out on a grassy lawn, or while whirling around in the Yanaguana Garden, the 4.1-acre play area that’s fun for both children and grown-ups. (Organized fitness events are held at Hemisfair – from yoga to dance to “Camp Gladiator Fitness” – but the schedule is more a smattering than a deluge.) A final idea: Return to the river. As the San Antonio River Walk continues to expand and evolve, there are more and more easily accessible places to gaze

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.

NATURAL BRIDGE CAVERNS: >> ADVENTURE ON A WHOLE NEW LEVEL >> On March 27, 1960, four St. Mary’s University students discovered the largest cave in Texas, located between New Braunfels and San Antonio. As they made their way through a rubble-filled crawlway, they encountered a whole new world – underground. After carefully walking and crawling through two miles of vast cavern passages, they returned to the surface to tell the landowners of their astonishing discovery. Realizing the possibilities, the owners decided to develop what is now the first half-mile of today’s Discovery Tour at Natural Bridge Caverns. Commercial development began almost exactly two years later in 1962. During excavation of the entrance trail, arrowheads and spearheads dating from 5,000 B.C. were found, as well as jawbones of a species of grizzly bear that became extinct over 8,000 years ago. On July 3, 1964, Natural Bridge Caverns opened and soon became one of the most treasured 56 RIO Magazine

natural attractions in Texas, offering adventure on a whole new level. It became a registered U.S. natural landmark in 1971. The Discovery Tour goes 180 feet below ground and is the original, most popular cavern tour, introducing guests to a world of natural beauty. The Hidden Passages tour offers another worldclass cave, where darkness and shadows play upon delicate structures and around every corner is a mystery. Natural Bridge Caverns is constantly growing, as tiny drops of water and the slow passage of time form massive, otherworldly formations. These formations retain a luster that is seen in few caverns. Appearing to be made of wax, they

are actually as hard as limestone, and change from room to room. Maintaining a constant 70 degrees year-round, Natural Bridge Caverns is the perfect summertime entertainment. The Canopy Challenge Zip Lines allow guests to snap into a harness and fly high across the landscape of the Texas Hill Country. Visitors who like testing their balance and fear of heights can visit the Canopy Challenge Explorer Course, where they have 30 minutes to grapple their way to the top of a 60-foot, four-tier ropes course. A different sort of adventure awaits visitors at ground level, in the AMAZEn’ Ranch Roundup, where twists and turns through a 5,000 square foot outdoor, timed maze present endless fun. Navigational skills are challenged to hit each checkpoint and find the way out! Guests shouldn’t miss a visit to the Mining Company for some good old-fashioned fun, where mining for gems, fossils and other treasures is just like when miners panned for gold. After all the adventures, visitors can relax, shop and enjoy refreshments in Discovery Village. There’s more to explore than ever before, right now at Natural Bridge Caverns.
