San Antonio's newest coffee shops are here to help you upgrade your life and coffee drinking experiences.

San Antonio Beer Week will end Saturday with a Southtown Brewery Crawl that explores some of the best Southtown breweries around. Join the SABW crew, and hop on the shuttle tour, to learn and enjoy beers along the way.

Fontaine’s Southern Diner & Bar is now open for breakfast, lunch, dinner and pie, anytime. "We’re going to have a rotating number of Southern desserts, so hopefully people are coming in often enough to try them all," Chef Tim Rattray said.

San Antonio's historic downtown Majestic Theatre will celebrate its 90th Birthday over cocktails during its happy hour tours, available June 24 and July 1.

The modern, Dallas-based Southern diner, Ida Claire will open its first San Antonio location this fall. Look forward to weekend brunch at the Alamo Quarry near the restaurant's rose garden, boozy beverages and private dining options inside the restaurant's converted airstream trailers.
