Drink Specials

Lubricating deconstructionism banter on the cheap


College students are subject to a variety of (often accurate) stereotypes including, but not limited to, proclivities towards pretention, shallow pockets, and borderline alcoholism. While I don't necessarily condone indulging the latter too much, socializing responsibly doesn't have to drain already-low funds. Thankfully, San Antonio's watering holes offer a variety of daily drink specials for the more parched pupils of the Alamo City. So the next time you're looking to discuss Nietzsche's Thus Spoke Zarathustra or Derrida's contributions to deconstructionism between rounds of body shots, check out some of these more student-budget-friendly dealmakers. — Ashley Feinberg
