Walking around San Antonio

Ivan and I walked to Bill Miller BBQ on March 1, 2010.  Roscoe recommended it for good bbq.  We each got a bbq chicken sandwich.  We thought it was okay.  We didn’t think the bbq sauce tasted that good.

We met our tour guide at The Alamo.

We were headed on a San Antonio Walks tour.  Our tour guide Gary talked pretty much the whole time.  It was so interesting to hear all about The Alamo and also the history of San Antonio.  The weather was weird today.  It started showering for a few minutes and then it was sunny again.  It was a bit cold out as well.  We walked around the downtown area during the tour.

Also, along the Riverwalk and the La Villita area.  We enjoyed the tour.

We walked around San Antonio.  We walked through the shops in La Villita.  We stopped at a shop to get some Blue Bell ice cream.  My friend Amy told me I need to try some.  We had the chocolate and it tasted really good!  I wanted to take pictures of The Alamo.  It’s free to walk inside the Alamo.  You’re not allowed to wear hats since it’s considered a holy place (it used to be a chapel).  It’s crazy to imagine less than 200 people against 4,000 Mexicans.  Those are bad odds!  Those men were definitely brave.

We walked back to the hotel to chill.  Ivan and I did our laundry at the coin-operated machines.

I called Roscoe to see if he was ready to go to dinner.  Ivan, Roscoe and I walked to the Riverwalk.  We were checking out the restaurants.  Ivan wanted to go to Joe’s Crab Shack.  Some of the restaurants on the Riverwalk are too expensive.  Ivan and Roscoe have never been to Joe’s.  I’ve been to one in Las Vegas.  Ivan and I shared a big Shark Bite drink that’s meant for two people.

Ivan and I shared the crab stuffed mushrooms and the seafood platter.  The seafood platter came with tilapia, a crab cake and malibu shrimp.  The food was delicious!

Roscoe walked us to Howl at the Moon.  We said good night to Roscoe.

Howl at the Moon is a bar that has dueling pianos.  The cover charge is $5 per person.  We went inside and found a table near the stage.

It was a guy and a girl on two pianos.  They sounded alright.  They played lots of requests like Santeria by Sublime and I’m Yours by Jason Mraz.
