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.

SAN ANTONIO – Nothing explains the Texan identity quite like the Texas Folklife Festival. Through its three days, visitors can experience for themselves what it means to be Texans. For a native Texan, it’s a reminder and for a visitor or first-time festival attendee, it’s an explanation.
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…

WRITER’S BLOC: San Antonio Jazz Composer’s Consortium for New Music.

Merriam-Websters defines “Bloc” as “a group of people or countries that are connected by a treaty or agreement or by common goals.” This group of composers has brought it’s collective talent and energy together to present the new music that is being written in the San Antonio region. The goal of this group is to present as much of the music being written by new young composers, as well as the established writing talent of our city to the public.

THIS MONTH’S FEATURED COMPOSERS:

Adrian Ruiz, Aaron Prado, Brian Christiensen, Joe Caploe, Mark Little, and Steve Mohacey

Carmens de la Calle Cafe…320 N Flores St, San Antonio, Texas 78205


 

Soooo, I’ve been a minute or a thousand.  I apologize but the gauntlet has been thrown and I’ve accepted the ASP.Net challenge.  I spent the entire weekend held up in my little home office, mainly debugging.  Stay tuned for tales of the new collaboration widget for musicians and my scalable musician site complete with a MySQL backend that almost looks as good as mine…

…almost.

Those of you who know my love and adoration for anything and everything vegan may scoff at this post.  I just really like the atmosphere at Zombie’s.  It’s swimming in non-pretentiousness.  I like that.  I like that a lot.
