Alianza Latino Americana is back in full force and reading to present “Corridos y Cantares II.”

Its first and most-successful presentation took place in 2012 and now this much-awaited follow-up song-and-dance musical production with a Mexican flavor is almost here.

Among the many performers will be Monterrey-native Héctor Hernández, who from an early age demonstrated an aptitude for music and singing. Although he studied to be an Aeronautical technician, his passion is music. Hence, that is why, as a teenager, he participated as a vocalist with the Harlandale High School’s mariachi group.

Rain ,Rain stay away and it did. For the folks who braved the cool night they were treated to an amazing evening loaded with the sight, sound and the aroma of food lingering in the air. Walking the park grounds I came to a opinion wishing there were  two of me so I can see and enjoy twice as much. There were 6 stages and over 600 artist.

Rudy’s Seafood Rules

We’ve all heard about the “Seven wonders of the world,” and the seven wonders of the ancient world. And if they were to rate seven seafood restaurants among the eatery wonders of San Antonio, Rudy’s Seafood would be at the top of the list because that’s how good it is.

Even the very reasonably priced appetizing daily specials are a force to be reckoned with. Take the special that includes two choice large fish fillets, three nice sized shrimp, Cole slaw, zesty French fries and a Serrano pepper to make the dish even more enjoyable. Even the presentation looks exquisite.




SAN ANTONIO (March 8, 2013) – The Sixth Annual Luminaria will take place Saturday, March 9, 2013 in HemisFair Park and downtown San Antonio from 7 p.m. to midnight.  Luminaria will take place, rain or shine.  However, in the event of rain, music and art installations will be moved inside the Henry B. Gonzalez Convention Center and the indoor venues in HemisFair Park will also be open.

 “We are confident that, rain or shine, San Antonio’s Sixth Annual Luminaria will be a night to remember,” says Richard Rosen, Artistic Director of Luminaria.
