Events in San Antonio This Weekend

Summer is almost over, how dramatic! 😫 Wouldn’t a movie under the stars with friends and family be just perfect to enjoy with some frozen paletas before it’s too cold out?

The Tobin Center has got you covered with a night of FREE entertainment and encourages you to bring your face masks, chairs, and blankets! No outside food, unfortunately, but there will be a full bar and concession stand available to purchase some yummy goodies before the show starts.

This month they’ll be featuring “Julie Taymor’s A Midsummer Night’s Dream,” a live theater performance that brings Shakespeare’s classic to life with a twist. We know that you’ll be able to feel the emotions, comedy, and drama better through the huge 32 foot LED wall!

You can view the future schedule HERE.

Worried about the parking situation? Don’t! Parking is available at the Tobin Center Parking Garage for $15: 227 4th Street, 78205.

You can also check out general information on downtown San Antonio parking, here!

“The dog days are over?” Not quite, Florence + the Machine. Sorry! Around here, we adore our pups! As we should. 

Before summer is over, we’ll let our fur babies have a last hurrah at the Pickrell Park Pool to enjoy a dip at the “Paws in the Pool” party!

Please keep this in mind:

  • The entrance fee is $3 per person and allows 2 dogs.
  • Dog vaccination proof must be shown at the entrance.
  • Pre-registration is required, so sign up!
  • Max people allowed in the park are 60 with an hour and a half session starting at 10am, 12pm and 2pm.
  • All fur friends must wear a collar they can swim on and must be on leash outside if they’re outside of the pool.

To keep the environment clean and safe for everyone, including your pups, please make sure to clean up after your four-legged friends.

Plus! Everyone wants to have fun, so doggy toys and doggy snacks are allowed. Sounds like a great time to us! 🐶

Don’t forget that there’s plenty of Dog-Friendly Restaurants in San Antonio!

“Lions and tigers and bears, oh my!” 

We’re hoping this is our reaction at this year’s Alzafar Shrine Circus and not in a frightening way, but definitely an excited one! 

It’ll be a great way to enjoy some great, affordable family fun thanks to Alzafar Shrine. Plus, it’ll give the kids a break from working so hard since school started again. 

Bring on the silly clowns, exotic animals, yummy popcorn, and pink cotton candy! 🍭

Join us with friends and family for special occasions or just because, and enjoy great taste and elegance. It’ll make for amazing memories that’ll last a lifetime.

There will be loads of delicious teas, yummy tea sandwiches, freshly baked scones that will go perfectly with clotted cream, and scrumptious jams. As well as beautiful plates of tea pastries and cakes.

Daydreaming of Rome Italy and its mouthwatering food on the regular, but due to COVID-19, your traveling restrictions have been limited? 

Don’t worry. We’ve got an awesome alternative, so turn that frown upside down and head on over to Central Market for a cooking class like no other. Bringing the delicious tastes of Italy right to you!

What’s cooking good lookin’:

  • Delicious Pasta alla Gricia with Italian sausage (Guanciale) and Italian cheese (Pecorino)
  • Pork Tenderloin Saltimbocca cooked to perfection with Artichokes (because we’ve got to get our greens in. 🥬)

Reminder: Make sure to turn in the signed copy of the waiver for each attendant on the day of class. Time is limited in the classroom so make sure to arrive at least 5 minutes before. Also, safety precautions will continue to take place in order to keep everyone safe.
