    Heading here next week, will definitely use some of those restaurant tips. Boudros was already on my list and I think the fresh guacamole sold it :-)

    Brings back nice memories of a week I spent once in San Antonio at a convention. The Riverwalk was fairly new then, and we all loved it.

    I hope that you are having the happiest of birthdays and that the coming year is your best yet. I lived in SAT about the time that you started school and Mi Tierra was one of my faves. The Riverwalk was great and not quite as "commercial" as it is now.
