The Five-Point Weekend Escape Plan

Go Culture-Hopping in San Antonio


4. Insider’s Tip

The VFW house, which hosts weekly events, was built in 1904.  

Let loose on the lawn of the VFW Post 76, overlooking the River Walk. Originally organized by veterans of the Spanish-American War, the oldest post in Texas invites all of San Antonio to celebrate with outdoor parties (usually Fridays and Saturdays at 8:30 p.m.) that draw more than 100 locals with free live concerts and cold, cheap beers ($2.50 for non-members).
