- Rhode Island-style dogs from Mash'D
In case you did not make it out by the Canyon Lake, Port A, the pool, or you plain ol' forgot to tie your barbecue pit to a tree at Woodlawn Lake, here are a few last-minute Fourth of July parties to attend.
Bexar Pub: The party starts at 3 p.m. with day-long happy hour specials and a pig roast by chef Luis Colon using the Caja China. The day will include DJ sets and more. 114 Brooklyn Ave., (210) 236-7828.
Lowcountry: The staff at this Southtown cocktail bar will fire up a pig of their own with a portion of sales going toward Planned Parenthood "because access to healthcare makes autonomy possible." Stop by for tunes from DJ Big Tex, sparklers and plenty of beer. 4pm, 318 Martinez St., (210) 560-2224.
Jazz, TX: Freedom at the Pearl's underground music venue means no cover all night long. Stop by starting at 5 p.m. for music by The Doc Watkins Trio
and The Dirty River Dixie Band. 312 Pearl Pkwy., Building 6, (210) 332-9386.
Mash'D at the Rim: Half-price RI-style dogs — topped with meat sauce and — will be the snack to enjoy. Pair it with day-long happy hour specials for a real dose of patriotic pride. 17623 La Cantera Pkwy., Suite 107, (210) 538-5833.
