SIP & SAVOR

{THE PERFECT PAIRING } By Edmund Tijerina

You’re at your favorite restaurant; you take a bite out of your dish. Next, a sip from your drink. The perfect combination, and you’ll realize how thrilling and elevated your dining experience is.

Bohanan’s

Fortunately, in and near downtown, several restaurants offer opportunities to enhance dishes with just the right drinks. And we’re talking about more than just the usual rules of thumb like pairing red wine with red meats and white wine with fish or chicken. No, this is about matching flavor notes from sauces with aspects of drinks so the resulting pair brings out tastes that neither of the individual elements could bring. In some places, the chefs and sommeliers offer their pairings on the menu. At others, it’s a beverage expert helping guide diners to make the best choice possible. So when you’re looking for great food and beverage pairings, here are some great options: WINE PAIRINGS AT GWENDOLYN At Restaurant Gwendolyn, one of the most compelling and unique restaurants in Texas, chef/owner Michael Sohocki and his team create five and seven-course tasting menus highlighting ingredients obtained within about 150 miles of San Antonio and utilize handpowered cooking. In other words, no blenders, mixers, sous vide or anything like that. Just a stove, well-sharpened knives and a lot of technique and passion. The menus change nearly every day, and beverage director Jennifer Wade offers specific wine pairings with the different coursed menus. And they are exquisite. BEER PAIRINGS AT SOUTHERLEIGH At Southerleigh Fine Food & Brewery, chef/partner Jeff Balfour and brewmaster Les Locke work together to create beer pairings for specific dishes. Those are listed on the menu and are sure-fire hits. Think of fried chicken with a Southerlite light lager, a mixture of Gulf shrimp and oysters with a sage-infused saison or a Galveston Bay shrimp boil with a glass of Russian stout. Locke always keeps a sense of humor about his dishes. He names the Russian stout “Putin’s Revenge.” Balfour draws upon his childhood in Galveston and combines it with his years of high-level cooking to create a menu that’s both comforting and exacting. Whether you go for the suggested pairing or another of Locke’s creations, it’s hard to go wrong with any choice here. COCKTAIL PAIRINGS AT ESQUIRE TAVERN At the Esquire Tavern, chef Brooke Smith creates a menu that blows away any preconceptions of bar food, and pair wonderfully with the craft cocktails that come from the bar. Her dishes are just plain good. A simple shrimp cocktail features a housemade cocktail sauce with a touch of dried chile spice, with buttered saltines. A grilled rib-eye outperforms many steakhouses, and even the fried pickles are memorable with a panko crust and housemade ranch. Ask your server for cocktail recommendations, and you’ll get some good ones to accentuate the flavors of the dishes. A nice bourbon-based cocktail can bring out just the right notes of that steak, while a tequila-forward cocktail will highlight the shrimp cocktail.

SIP & SAVOR BEVERAGE EXPERIENCE AT BOHANAN’S There’s nothing typical about an evening at Bohanan’s Prime Steaks & Seafood. At the city’s best steakhouse, chef/ owner Mark Bohanan leads his team to consistently high performances in the mesquite-grilled steaks and array of rich sides. Meanwhile, sommelier Fabien Jacob shares his encyclopedic knowledge of wines from throughout the world to create pairings that appeal to a diner’s specific tastes while

honoring the grapes that produce the wines. You’ll want to start with a perfectly crafted cocktail from the bar downstairs -- itself an attraction -- and then enjoy one glass of wine with your appetizer and another glass of wine with your dinner. The time and expense are both well worth it.

MALBEC AND MOREAT DORREGO’S At a restaurant that specializes in inspirations from Argentina, Dorrego’s offers a bountiful selection of Malbec. That’s the grape which is considered a blending grape in France and found a new life as a featured grape in Argentina, and now has a much more elegant reputation. Malbecs go great with grilled meats, so it’s natural for the specialties of Argentina. But Dorrego’s offers more than just bottles and glasses of Malbec. Indeed, they also have an impressive selection of specialty cocktails including a housemade Irish cream liqueur and a Blackberry Bramble with housemade blackberry liqueur.

HUGE WINE LIST AT FIG TREE At the Fig Tree, American classics are prepared with a French-influenced flair, and the encyclopedic wine list includes some truly impressive heavy hitters. Among them, wines from Chateau Lafite Rothchild, Chateau Petrus and Opus One. But there are many more options than just the big and expensive names. Indeed, you can pair your steak, duck confit or seared scallops with other wines on this list that spotlights France and California.

AMERICAN BOUNTY AT LAS CANARIAS

The tasting menu at Las Canarias at the Omni La Mansión del Rio restaurant offers a fourcourse experience with paired wines in a relaxed and elegant setting. If you can, get a table that overlooks the River Walk to enjoy the dishes, service, and ambiance. The ingredients focus on products from the United States, and usually, the wines, do as well.

TASTING MENU AND MORE AT BIGA At Biga on the Banks, chef/partner Bruce Auden leads his team in creating dishes that have become San Antonio classics, such as his chicken-fried oysters and griddled rib-eye topped with Shiner bock onion rings.

WRITER’S BIO: Award-winning food writer Edmund Tijerina is the author of San Antonio’s Best Restaurants. Catch him at SanAntoniosBest Restaurants.com

Take advantage at one of the best fine dining deals around with a three- or four-course chef’s tasting menu, offered either before 6:30 p.m. or after 9 p.m. Ask his staff to suggest pairings, and they’ll steer you right.

Or live large and reserve Table 31 for a group of up to eight people to receive a private tasting menu. It’s a culinary experience you won’t forget.

FAMILY FUN

Who says you have to go to Broadway or Hollywood to become a star? Heck, astronomers say about 400 million stars are born every day! There’s no need to leave home to star in your own blockbuster movie because San Antonio offers endless opportunities for every family to experience eyepopping effects, spectacular scenery, thrills, chills and enough excitement to rival anything on the silver screen.

Ford Holiday River Parade

For a gorgeous, glittering night full of unforgettable sights, the Ford Holiday River Parade can’t be beat. It’s the perfect enchanted start to the holiday season, especially in San Antonio, where November temperatures are famously mild. It’s also a way to recharge your batteries after Thanksgiving’s indoor feasts or hectic Black Friday shopping. The last two years the parade and dinner packages have sold out. Secure your tickets or reserve a table via the River Walk’s website. No matter from what vantage point you choose to watch, it’s an unforgettable event. The parade winds with the river. Starting at the mid-century modern El Tropicano hotel heading south through the Arneson River Theatre (the parade is broadcast live locally at 7 p.m.), through the convention center lagoon and then onto the Shops at Rivercenter and past the rows of restaurants downtown. Twentyeight brilliantly decorated and illuminated floats will pay tribute this year to how San Antonians celebrate the holiday season. From Santa Claus to the magic of the Magi on Mexico’s Dia de Los Reyes (Three Kings Day), from Papa Noel to Germany’s traditional celebrations, this sparkling procession along the gloriously lit river is one of the most popular holiday traditions of the year. Take some time out during the first weekend of November to visit the Hemisfair Park where two special events will be taking place. There’s India’s Diwali celebration on Nov. 3 where the park comes alive with swirling displays of vibrant colors from the handmade attire and the traditional Indian dances that celebrate the triumph of good over evil. Be sure to stay until midnight to watch the fireworks display! On Nov. 10 and 11, the park will host Luminaria, a free after-dark contemporary arts festival, where brilliant displays of artwork draw visitors from around the world. The festival is the cultural connector between artists, audiences and the world. Experience the intimacy of the Arneson River Theater and watch as it transforms into the Renaissance period. On Nov. 15-17, the Magik Theatre presents its annual Shakespeare on the River show in the atmospheric and historic stage of the Arneson River Theater. This year’s show features the acclaimed Arkansas Shakespeare Theatre company in a one-hour, family-friendly production of Bard’s hilarious classic comedy Much Ado About Nothing. It’s an incredible experience getting to sit out under the stars on a cool November night, as laughter echoes on the river. It’s an experience you don’t want to miss. The show opens with a half-hour of live music and is free to all (reserved VIP seating is also available on the Magik’s website). You’ll also find breath-taking beautiful holiday experiences throughout town. SeaWorld San Antonio is decking out the halls for its annual Christmas Celebration, an extraordinary holiday event that begins November 17. The park is festooned with 9 million lights (yes, that’s millions of lights), the largest Christmas light display in Texas. Guests can also meet Rudolph-the-Red-Nosed-Reindeer as he makes his way through the park.

GREAT FINDS

All photos on this page: San Antonio Home and Garden Show

Show-Stopping Shopping By Dawn Robinette If “show shopping” sounds like a strange hobby, you’ve probably never walked the aisles of a show pondering how you’ll carry home all of your great finds. With some terrific shows around San Antonio, show shopping is something to add to your hobby list. After all, there’s no need to scurry from store to store, or showroom to showroom, when a bevy of options and an array of products awaiting discovery are all in one show. So if dinner and a show can be a thing, so can shopping and a show, right? The word show automatically sounds entertaining, and you can’t find more entertainment—and shopping—under one roof than the San Antonio Home and Garden Show. Filling the Alamodome twice a year for fall and spring, the Home and Garden Show is the only place you can discover a new favorite salsa, a fantastic front door, and fabulously 24

on-trend succulents to add to your home, all in one place. Don’t let the show’s name fool you: it’s much more than just home and garden. Yes, you can explore options to update your kitchen, bathroom, garage or patio. You can also learn about solar panels, roofing options, storage systems, and flooring. And you don’t realize how big a backyard pool is until you’re standing next to one towering above you on display. Not in remodel mode? You’ll still find easy décor ideas, accessories for your home and garden and flavors you’ll want to add to your table. It’s impossible to list everything you can discover at the Home and Garden Show, but since it’s all in one place you can save time with one-stop shopping—and save money with show-only discounts. With demonstrations, kids’ activities and celebrity guests, it’s also familyfriendly, something that makes shopping even better. thesanantonioriverwalk.com

latest models. Back inside, the entire family can enjoy checking out automotive works of art: exotic and show cars.

San Antonio Auto Show

If family-friendly show shopping sounds like something you’d enjoy, mark your calendar for the San Antonio Auto and Truck Show. With gleaming, shining, fresh-off-of-the-production-line model vehicles filling what they call “the largest showroom in Texas” each year, you can shop and compare all makes and models of cars and trucks under one roof—and learn about the features, bells, and whistles from knowledgeable product specialists. Manufacturers often use auto shows as a way to introduce new cars, so you can also get a sneak peek at vehicles that haven’t hit dealerships yet. The auto show includes all things automotive, so in addition to new vehicles, you can experience the most current and innovative ways to personalize your ride in the show’s “Marketplace”- its focus on the everexpanding automotive after-market. And who doesn’t love getting behind the wheel to try a car on for size? You can witness the show as it spills out of its home at the Henry B. Gonzales Convention Center to offer exclusive ride-and-drive opportunities, putting you in the driver’s seat to try out the thesanantonioriverwalk.com

For a show that raises shopping to an art form, look no further than the River Walk Museum Reach where the San Antonio Museum of Art hosts its Museum Shop Holiday Fair and San Antonio Potters Guild Clay & Art Festival. With more than 40 vendors, it’s a one-stop shop for handmade artistic creations of local clay, glass, and fiber. You’ll find jewelry, bags, functional pottery, prints and more. The fair is the perfect excuse to spend the day at the Museum—and visit its excellent gift shop—before enjoying the River of Lights official lighting of the Museum Reach. The beauty of the River Walk paired with fantastic shopping? Now that’s a worthy calendar marked event. Another opportunity for a fun-filled shopping day is at the Holiday Artisan Show on the River Walk. Nestled amongst the sparkling lights of the River Walk extension close to the Shops at River Center, the Artisan Show features handmade crafts from many vendors. Objects sold are paintings, photography, glasswork, and woodwork just waiting to be discovered, along with jewelry, clothing, soaps, and candles. There’s something for everyone, and many items can be personalized onsite. Others, such as jewelry featuring tiny micro-roses hand grown and encased lockets, rings, and pendants, are unlike anything you’ll find on your typical shopping RIO Magazine

CULTURE & COMMUNITY

A JOURNEY ON MEMORY LANE By Dan R. Goddard

San Antonio’s older street names often reflect the city’s deep roots in Texas and Spanish colonial history. Destinations provide the names of some of the city’s most-traveled arteries, such as New Braunfels Avenue, Fredericksburg, Seguin, Bulverde, and Castroville roads, while several downtown streets honor Alamo heroes – Travis, Crockett, Bowie, Bonham ­—and roads bear the names of early German settlers, such as Basse, Braun, Guenther, and Huebner. 28 RIO Magazine

Toribio Loyosa Statue

thesanantonioriverwalk.com


Hyatt Regency San Antonio

St, Mary’s University

Loyosa Street at East Commerce

Since the city’s growth, developers have given streets names that range from the blandly unimaginative to the weirdly whimsical, such as the neighborhood behind Douglas MacArthur High School that salutes the 1960s space race with drives named Gemini, Canaveral, Satellite, Missile, Titan and John Glenn. LOSOYA STREET Toribio Losoya, one of several Tejano Alamo defenders, is the dashing figure in bronze brandishing a pistol across from the Hyatt Regency San Antonio River Walk on Losoya Street. His body was found in the Alamo chapel following the 1836 battle, although members of his family who were in the Alamo compound thesanantonioriverwalk.com

during the siege -- his wife, three children, mother, brother, and sister – all survived. The Losoya family home, where he was born in 1808, was near the southwest corner of the mission compound and the Texans used it defending their position. However, David Green in his book, “Place Names of San Antonio,” thinks Losoya Street actually may have been named for Toribio’s brothers, Miguel and Cipriano, who received a Spanish land grant in 1773 on the east side of the San Antonio River where the street is now. The street wasn’t officially named until 1858 when the Losoyas’ property was broken up. But the ownership of the property, site of the downtown post office,

was long disputed before finally being settled by the United States Supreme Court in 1877. Today, Losoya Street, between the Alamo and the San Antonio River, is lined with the streetlevel entrances of some of the River Walk’s most popular bars and restaurants, including Lone Star Café, Café Ole, Dick’s Last Resort and the Rainforest Café. CULEBRA ROAD Culebra means “snake” in Spanish. But there’s some dispute over whether the road was named for its twisty, curvy, sinuous course or because of the many rattlesnakes that existed before the city’s development on the long, empty stretches of the road leading to ranches in Medina and RIO Magazine

northwest Bexar County. Culebra begins off Fredericksburg Road near San Pedro Park, not far from The Cove restaurant, and runs west past Woodlawn Lake Park and St. Mary’s University. Taking a swing past the Southwest Research Institute, Culebra continues its angular, eccentric course through the far West Side to Culebra Creek Park at Loop 1604 until it turns into FM 471 past Galm Road west of the Government Canyon State Natural Area. NACOGDOCHES ROAD While the connection between San Antonio and the East Texas city of Nacogdoches may seem tenuous today, the link proved vital during the Spanish colonial era. Nacogdoches, which originates from the name of a Caddo Indian tribe dating to 1250, is considered the oldest city in Texas and became a vital supply outpost trading with the French in Louisiana by the early 1700s.

SAN PEDRO CREEK CULTURE PARK Spcculturepark.com

The Spanish developed the Camino Real, or King’s Highway, from San Antonio to Nacogdoches to transport supplies between missions in Mexico and East Texas. It became part of the Old Spanish Trail, a system of roads all across the southern United States from Florida to California. When Texas became a republic, many of the new settlers found their way from East to South Texas by traveling the Nacogdoches Road. Nacogdoches takes over from Basse Road at its intersection with Broadway and winds across northeast San Antonio. At Cave Lane, a few blocks south of Loop 410 is the Robber Baron Cave, Bexar County’s largest cave, overseen by the Texas Cave Management Association. Close to Loop 1604 at Judson Road is Comanche Lookout Park: a 96-acre public park with a 1,340-foot summit. It’s the fourth highest point in Bexar County that provides panoramic views of the San Antonio skyline. Apaches and later Comanches used the peak as a lookout for hunting and warfare, and the hill was a prominent landmark for travelers in the 18th and 19th centuries traveling on Nacogdoches. thesanantonioriverwalk.com


Santa Rosa is named for the Santa Rosa Infirmary, founded by the Sisters of Charity of the Incarnate Word, and refers to Saint Rose of Lima, canonized in 1668. Kersey made bright red, three-dimensional rose designs to decorate the bridge. The avenue once defined the western edge of San Antonio and was part of the Chisholm Trail. The Alamo, of course, is an important element of Kersey’s work on Travis Street honoring the Alamo’s 26-year-old commander, William Barret Travis. But she notes the original name of the street was “Obraje,” Spanish for “it’s raining.” The phrase, however, refers to textile workshops and factories established during the New Spain era. Processing wool and linens required a lot of water, which the creek provided. Diana Kersey’s ceramic art.

SANTA ROSA AVENUE, MARTIN AND TRAVIS STREETS As part of the San Pedro Creek Culture Park downtown, San Antonio ceramic artist Diana Kersey created elaborate, brilliantly-colored glazed ceramic embellishments for the bridges at Santa Rosa Avenue, Martin Street, and Travis Street. The city’s newest culture park has lushly-landscaped creekside pathways and public art that illustrate the different streets histories. Take a stroll about four blocks west of the River Walk on Houston or Travis streets to check them out.

It is believed Martin Street was named for another Alamo combatant, Captain Andrew Martin, who was the courier for the letter written by Travis to the presidio in Gonzalez that contains the immortal words, “Victory or Death.”

Had Sam Houston and General Santa Anna sat at a Boudro’s riverside table to share a Blackened Prime Rib and a full-bodied Cabernet Sauvignon, things may have turned out more amicably. So, if you want to write some Texas history for yourself, join us for lunch or dinner.

RECREATION

By Drew Henry

Oh, how the air is getting crisp and the leaves are changing to beautiful colors. It can only mean one thing.

Lost Maples

Fall is finally here in Texas. We begin our journey to Lost

Lost Maples is only two hours northwest of downtown, and you will feel as if you have gotten lost in a fall wonderland. The park protects a rare strand of Uvalde bigtooth maples, which come alive during the fall season with colors of orange, yellow, and red. Prepare to hike through a fall paradise and never want to go back to summer. The park is open daily and is only $6 for adults and free for kids under 12, making it a great family destination. There are over 10 miles of trails through the trees and along a 2,200-foot cliff, 30 campsites, fishing spots along the Sabinal River and Can Creek, bird watching opportunities, and Junior Ranger programs for the kids. You won’t want to leave these leaves!

Maples Park, famous for its fall leaves. Then, we head to Enchanted Rock for a climb with some spectacular Hill Country views. And if you prefer to enjoy your fall season with a warm beverage and spiced treats, we are making a stop at Love Creek Orchard for a slice of homemade apple pie. Grab your jacket, and let’s go! 32 RIO Magazine

Enchanted Rock You guessed it. Enchanted Rock is magical, mystical, and will enchant you. People have been drawn to this giant pink dome of granite for thousands of years. So, the hour and a half drive from downtown is worth it! The park is only $7 for adults and free for kids, and it offers over 11 miles of hiking trails. There are also opportunities to camp, rock climb, picnic, birdwatch, stargaze, and geocache. Geocaching is like a modern-day treasure hunt mapped on your smartphone. Ask a park ranger to help you get started. The park is also home to Sweet Marley’s snack trailer so that you can have a bite after your hike. Prepare for a day of enchanting adventures!

Love Creek Orchard If your version of fall fun consists of pumpkin spice and apple pie, we have you covered. Love Creek Orchard was founded in 1979 by Baxter Adams and was bought by Bryan and Stacie Hutzler in 2013 with big plans to expand it. In addition to apple trees, they are also the biggest producer of Lost Maple trees in Texas. But, let’s get to why we’re really here. The Apple Store on the property is open seven days a week and is home to the best apple pie in Texas! The store makes over 50 different items from fresh apples including cakes, breads, syrups, cookies, candies, jams, and ice cream. Kick back with a mug of apple cider and a warm slice of fresh apple pie and enjoy the breathtaking views.

on Day one:

Bier Garten at the River Walk

Exploring Our German Heritage From 1847 to 1861, more than seven thousand German immigrants moved to San Antonio, comprising one-third of the county’s population at the time. We embrace those roots today with plenty of places to celebrate San Antonio’s German heritage this month.

24 Wurstfest Crowd

Great German eats at Bier Garten at the River Walk

Guten Morgen: Begin your day listening to a German sermon at St. Joseph’s Church, followed by breakfast at the Guenther House. This historic restaurant is the former home of the Guenther family, founders of Pioneer Flour Mills. If the Southern Sweet Cream Waffle consumes you, make sure to pick up a batch of the mix in the gift shop. Guten Tag: San Antonio is surrounded by German roots with town names like Fredericksburg and Gruene (pronounced by locals as “green”). And from November 2 through 11, you can attend the best fest in New Braunfels — Wurst Fest. This 10-day festival is the best of Bavaria with music, food, entertainment and of course — beer. Prefer to stay in town? Check out Beethoven Maennerchor in downtown’s historic King William District. On the first Friday of each month, the Southtown area hosts events to draw in

visitors, and on November 2, Maennerchor will host an evening of traditional German fare, music, and beer. Gute Nacht: If you didn’t get your fill of brats and beer during the day, San Antonio has a few great German dinner options. Schilo’s downtown has a great sausage sampler plate, but the schnitzel and German potato salad should not be missed. Then polish off your evening with pretzel, a pilsner and a rousing accordion sing-a-long at Bier Garten Riverwalk.

on Day two:

DAY 2: HONORING OUR HEROES San Antonio is famous for the battle of the Alamo. However, it’s our current military population and military bases that have earned us the nickname, Military City, U.S.A. There is no shortage of heroes and their families who call San Antonio home, and November 11 is a day for us to remember those who have paid the ultimate price for our freedom.

Vietnam Monument Hill

The Holocaust: The Holocaust Memorial Museum of San Antonio is free and open to the public, with a suggested donation of just a few dollars to fund the incredible work that’s going on to educate and remember the six million Jews who perished and those who sacrificed to save others. Visitors can embark on a self-guided tour, or schedule a tour in advance with a local Holocaust survivor.

Parade: On Saturday, November 10, the San Antonio Veterans Day Parade will kick off with a drill team competition and wreath ceremony at the Vietnam War Memorial. The parade will continue downtown passing the Alamo, the Buckhorn Saloon and Museum, and the Majestic Theatre before crossing the river and ending near Milam Park.

9/11: Not all heroes wear capes or uniforms. The 9/11 memorial in San Antonio is dedicated to those lost in the infamous terrorist attacks — including the heroes behind the badge who dug through the rubble trying to save them.

Vietnam: San Antonio is home to several memorials of the fallen. The Vietnam War Memorial near the Tobin center offers moving tributes to those who fought and died in the Vietnam War. This solemn space features a 10-ton bronze sculpture documenting a moving moment in American history.

Raise a Glass: San Antonio is home to the oldest VFW post in Texas. Right off Broadway downtown, VFW Post 76 is a gorgeous historic building that hosts steak nights on Wednesdays, and Happy Hour Sunday through Thursday. The post is bike and pet-friendly, and it’s the perfect place to raise a domestic draft in honor of the fallen.

Luminaria

72 on day three

DAY 3: SAN ANTONIO’S ART AND SOUL Creative and self-expression is the very “art” and “soul” of this city ART: Luminaria, one of the city’s best late-night shindigs, comes to town in November. What started as a one-night art exhibition has morphed into a weekend-long celebration. From November 9 through 11, Luminaria will light the night at Hemisfair Park and Mission San Jose.

THE GOSPEL: If you have time for a Sunday drive, head outside of town to Gruene for their second Sunday brunch. Every second Sunday of the month, Gruene Hall hosts a lively Gospel Brunch, complete with New Orleans style gospel music and a life-changing buffet from the Grist Mill. Take time to stroll through the antique shops and cute boutiques in the quaint little town before heading back to San Antonio.

SOUL: If you’re looking for some daytime soul searching, try a Sunday sermon in multiple languages at the 155-year-old First Baptist Church in downtown San Antonio. After the service, stop by Tony G’s Soul Food for the hearty Sunday Soulful Brunch.

ingredients

¾ Cup of Tequila ¼ Cup Simple Syrup ¼ Cup of Prickly Pear Cactus Juice ½ Cup of Triple Sec 1 Cup of Fresh Lime Juice 1 Lime (Cut into 6 wedges for garnish) 1 Blender Full of Ice instructions Simple Syrup—bring water to a boil then dissolve in the sugar. Once the sugar is fully dissolved, you remove the pan from the heat and allow it to cool. The resulting liquid can be stored in a plastic squeeze bottle which makes it an easy way to add to cocktails. The ratio of sugar to water can be left to personal preference, although traditionally it is one part water to two parts sugar. Pour all ingredients into the blender. Turn on the blender, add more ice and blend until it has a sorbet-like consistency. Pour into a cocktail glass, pour the prickly pear puree on top and add a lime wedge!

WINNERS Drift & Dine created laughter, new friends and a boat full of great memories for all who attended the first (and soon to be annual) event held in late September on the River Walk. Twelve boats sold-out each night. Guests drifted to seven different restaurants and exited at each stop to go inside and claim their appetizer-sized morsel and return to enjoy while drifting to their next stop. Twenty-one restaurants participated in the three-night culinary showcase for the River Walk. Each guest was asked to vote for their favorite dish at the end of the evening. Every restaurant received votes, which is a testament to the high-caliber culinary scene on the River Walk. Boudro’s Texas Bistro won the first night, amidst fierce competition, with their Housemade Boudin Fritters served on a bed of arugula and topped with a drizzle of chipotle remoulade. The crisp panko exterior concealed the tender white sausage made from smoked pork. Louisiana popcorn long grain rice onion, celery, and poblano pepper combined with the sausage. The chipotle remoulade horseradish contained notes of creole mustard, red onion, chives, and chevre. The second night two restaurants tied for votes; Bier Garten Riverwalk and Zocca Cuisine D’Italia. While the dishes are strikingly different, both excelled in taste and presentation. Bier Garten served a Trio of German sausage along with a delicious warm German pretzel. Sharp mustard and a creamy cheese sauce were the perfect compliments for dipping both. Zocca served a delicate crabcake made with jumbo lump crab meat on a bed of fresh spinach and topped with a dollop of garlic-orange marmalade. Each tasty morsel was made in front of the guests and served on small wooden plates. The final night, Iron Cactus Mexican Restaurant & Margarita Bar outdid themselves with an unparalleled Southwest Paella. Tender cooked jumbo shrimp, mussels, and bay scallops were nestled in a highly flavorful cilantro lime rice and tossed with two different sauces; a lobster cream sauce and a jalapeno Texas sauce. Thanks to each of the twenty-one participating restaurants and to Bud Light as title sponsor of the event. Thank you, also, to Ace Mart for providing the awards, Pottery Barn for welcome reception décor, and to Pepsi, Bud Light, Son Beverage Company and Favorite Brands for welcome reception refreshments. Additional gratitude to Justin’s Ice Cream, and Rita’s on the River for the Sweet Bon Voyage desserts and Joe’s Crab Shack, Dom’s Chop Salsa, and Guillermo ’s for appetizers.

Tickets will go on sale in July for the 2019 Drift & Dine at TheSanAntonioRiverWak.com/events. thesanantonioriverwalk.com
