I love the architecture in San Antonio and I also love how the city works to preserve the wonderful architectural assets of the city. The downtown RiverCenter Mall is going through a bit of an update (it was built in the mid-80’s) and the main anchor is the Joske’s department store footprint. The building is a downtown icon.

I went down to San Antonio from Austin to see some works of art at a gallery in Terrell Hills/Alamo Heights and afterwards headed to one of my favorite spots downtown, Mi Tierra. You’d think the long lines and busy bar would mean a long wait time, but a couple of margaritas into it, no one cares. I’ve been going to this restaurant since I was a wee child, and every time I’m there, the nostalgia of my childhood comes back. I just love the place. The food is surprisingly good for the number of people they run through there.
