San Antonio Riverwalk

Everyone has heard of the Riverwalk, it has become synonymous with San Antonio. Last night we took a cab to the Riverwalk for dinner and a night out. We stopped and made a reservation at Boudro’s and then walked on to Jim Cullum’s Landing, a jazz cafe further down the walk. The music was great and the margaritas were half price. We got a table on the walkway and people watched for an hour until our table was ready for dinner.

Boudro’s is a very nice restaurant and the prices reflect this. But what the heck, it is the San Antonio Riverwalk! Splurge a little! Norma had the Rib Eye Steak and I had Grilled Tuna. I asked for it medium rare and that is what I got. It was very pink on the inside and was delicious! I have tried cooking tuna myself and have over cooked it every time. This one was very good. With one glass of wine each and no desert the bill was $75 before tip. One whole day's budget in Mexico!

After dinner we walked back to the jazz bar for an Irish Coffee that was also half price. The live music had stopped by this time so after one Irish Coffee we continued on to the Hilton where there was a piano player doing his repertoire of Jim Croce songs. We stopped for a drink and had a great conversation with the waitress who was looking for a good spot in Mexico to hold her wedding. After a nice chat and offering a couple of suggestions we found a cab and made our way back to the hotel. It was a great evening.

The Riverwalk is nice although if pressed, I would have to say the Monterrey N.L. Riverwalk is nicer. Add a few more restaurants to the Mexican version and it would be a hands down winner. Anyway, this one is nice and it is one more thing checked off my “To Do” list.
