You know who doesn't have a cocktail conference? Austin. Dallas. Houston. So even if they're a peripheral fan of cocktails, San Antonians should want to check out what exactly makes the San Antonio Cocktail Conference so special.
There's official parties
and seminars to check out (which help support children charities across the city. Past beneficiaries include ChildSafe, The Children's Shelter, Clarity Child Guidance Center, HeartGift San Antonio, TEAMability and Transplants for Children). And then there's the spillover
of brands showcasing their wares in bars across town. Here are a few more of those parties to keep on your radar this week/weekend.
