Where can you find an interactive google map of First Friday? Any happy hour specials you should know about off South Alamo? Shane Broussard from Ped-ads bring you the MySouthTown app. A free application downloadable to both iPhone and Android handsets.

Some of the application features include self-guided walking tours, happy hour specials, and currently updated First Friday info. In the spirit of supporting local economy the app also provides information about exclusive deals and discounts from South Town area businesses.

Any drawbacks? Just one. The app doesn't feature information or a map to public restrooms in the South Town area. A frequently asked question both locals and tourists have when they visit the area.
