Saturday, October 4 is National Taco Day…which seems a bit silly for San Anto, but any excuse to load up on tacos, amirite? Viva Tacoland (103 W Grayson) will host a mid-day yoga-taco-music sesh. Stop in for a chamoy margarita, get bendy with Mobile Om ($10 donation for session) and of course, chow down on tacos via the onsite taco truck from 11 a.m. to close.
If you’re in the mood for a classier and more charitable affair, on Saturday, the Witte Museum (3801 Broadway) will host the second annual Tango of the Vines from 6:30 to 10:30 p.m. The event will benefit the Amniotic Fluid Embolism Foundation, which raises awareness for this often-fatal maternal health complication. Look forward to food and drinks via Acenar, Becker Vineyards, Boiler House, Catalyst Catering, Charlie Wants a Burger, the SA Chefs Cooperative, Fiesta Winery, Hard Rock Café, Karbach Brewing Co., La Hacienda de Los Barrios, Lick Ice Cream, Max’s Wine Dive, Ocho, Paesanos Riverwalk, TBA Cocktail Lounge, Thai Topaz and more. Get your $60 tickets here.
If you didn’t volunteer to help Robert Irvine and his Restaurant Impossible team revamp Knife & Fork Gastropub (20626 Stone Oak Pkwy, Ste 103) this weekend, you can still put in your reservation for the grand re-opening on Sunday, October 5 at 7 p.m. by calling (210) 497-7111. The makeover marks the second time the beefy English import and his team remodeled a San Antonio eatery (the now-closed Mama Lee’s Soul Food got a facelift a few years ago). Even if you don’t make the reservation list, on-lookers can check out the progress for glimpses of the Restaurant Impossible host and his crew.
Know what goes great with bread? Delicious tejano history.

Call (210) 226-4801 or email email@example.com to reserve your seat.
