Sancho’s | 628 Jackson St.
Popular tacos y cervezas spot Sancho’s is opening up its four outside dining areas — there's no indoor dining offered right now — with tables spaced to keep six feet between groups. Beyond pledging that its staff is committed to health and safety, the bar is setting expectations for diners with a "Promesa to Sancho’s
." The promesa holds diners accountable for managing group size, maintaining social distancing and using face coverings.
The Pigpen | 106 Pershing Ave.
The Pigpen in Alamo Heights has reopened its patio, but regular customers will notice something is missing: the playground. While many adults know the Pigpen for its super-gingery frozen Moscow Mule, its outdoor area's sizable play structure has also become a favorite of SA kiddos. According to the Pigpen’s Facebook page, the structure was removed to make room for more socially distanced tables. However, the kiddie favorite will come back once state and local government officials deem it safe.
