Date Night at Battalion


Restaurants

There’s a new Italian kid on the block and he’ll give your Nonna a run for her money. Located in the old Fire Station No. 7 building in San Antonio’s Southtown, Battalion serves fresh Italian favorites in a space more reminiscent of a swanky club than grandma’s kitchen. Andrew Goodman (of Feast and Rebelle) excelled […]

Bohanan’s Bests The Steakhouse Scene


Restaurants

Some believe that the American steakhouse is an archaic restaurant model from a bygone era. A boys’ club. A high dollar gathering place exclusive to celebrating business deals with overpriced bourbon and overcooked steak.

Best Brunch at Vaudeville’s Basement Bistro


Restaurants

If you search Instagram for #brunch, you’ll see more than 13 million mouth-watering photos of carefully curated croissants, cappuccinos, Eggs Benedict, and of course the star of the […]

Peggy’s On The Green Is On The Mark


Restaurants

What defines an exceptional dining experience? Our weekend visit to Peggy’s On The Green in Boerne, Texas provided just that definition. It was a rainy day and we had spent most of it fighting the retail crowds and running errands. Nothing sounded better than an early dinner of comfort food and a great cocktail. Peggy’s accommodated […]

9 Amazing Things You Have to See and Do in Santiago


Travel

When it comes to international travel, my husband and I have spent most of our time in Europe. So when the opportunity to go to South America presented itself last month, we said yes right away. Going to South America in January means a nice break from wintery temperatures here in the States. It was […]

Have the Best Date Night at Signature


Lifestyle, Restaurants

Is it just me, or is this week flying by? I can’t believe tomorrow is already Friday and it’ll be a week since we tried Signature, a new restaurant in San Antonio. We had a little Valentine’s celebration at home but also made reservations with some friends for a fun night out. I already know that […]
