Dang Retox!  I got like three steps in that place and drinks were already being thrown my way!  Y’all know how to treat one of the fairer sex right!  Even the pretty ladies were super friendly.

Thursday night at Retox doesn’t suck.

It starts at 6:30 but you should plan to get there early.  No outside food and they ask that strollers be kept at a minimum or that families use the umbrella types.

The DoSeum is located at 2800 Broadway, 78209.

Want to see a listing of the clubs and bars in the San Antonio area?  Click the new page link above to see the database, all new and sparkly and pretty!  I’m still adding clubs and will be at it until the wee hours of tomorrow morning so don’t fret if you don’t see your favorite waterin’ hole added.  Or fret and send me a heads up at info@bjdesignsit.com and I’ll be sure to update the database accordingly.  That’s my gift to you this fine first day of summer.

What should you do tonight?  Go gaze at that full moon.  It’s the Summer Solstice and tonight’s lunar display is a once in a lifetime viewing as this Strawberry Moon only coincides with the aforementioned beginning of the season once every 70 years.  Pagans and religious folk alike are gathering at Stonehenge and Sweden is celebrating by feasting throughout the day in honor of the symbolism that includes renewal, fertility and harvest.

I’m providing a database and getting a Big Mac so I think I’m set.

Texans from around the state will gather at the UTSA Institute of Texan Cultures for the 45th annual Texas Folklife Festival, June 10 to 12, to celebrate their heritage and pass along their culture to the next generation. more…
