Sure, mariachis and their music are nothing new to us in San Antonio. Whether you're enjoying pan dulce or a margarita (or four) at Mi Tierra, strolling along the River Walk or throwing a quince for your prima, the sounds of the trumpets, vihuelas, guitarrons and violins can be heard throughout San Antonio and indeed the Southwest.
