Christmas in San Antonio, with snowflakes

I'll be visiting San Antonio for the 1st time, from 12/21-26, to attend my son's Air Force BMT graduation, with (adult) family, and would like some suggestions for vegan-friendly restaurants, in general, and possibly for Christmas, plus other activities. [more inside]

24-hour or late night veg-friendly grocery stores in San Antonio, TX?

I'm going to fly into San Antonio, TX, tomorrow night (Saturday) and need to pick up some groceries on my way to a remote residency. I'm a vegetarian, so I'd prefer Whole Foods/Trader Joe's but I'm scheduled to arrive at the airport at 8:50pm with checked luggage and a rental car hire so I think I'm going to miss both closings (10pm/9pm respectively). Any other good stores with natural/vegetarian offerings and a 24 hour grocery in the region (maybe a Super Target)? Ideally on the way or not too far off the route from San Antonio to Medina?

Bed and Breakfast in the Texas Hill Country

My company has offered me a weekend at a B&B in the Texas Hill Country in thanks for 10 years of service. Looking on the web there appear to be thousands of them, with wildly scattered reviews depending on which review site one chooses. Having had mixed experiences with B&B's, I thought I'd turn to the green for suggestions. If you've been to one in that area that you would recommend (or steer us away from), please write below.

Best succulents and exotic houseplants nursery on my route?

I'm driving roundtrip next week from KS to TX, and along the way I'll be passing through these cities: Oklahoma City, OK and Fort Worth, Austin, San Antonio, and Medina, TX. In or nearby any of these cities, do you know about a fabulously awesome and dirt cheap nursery, open on Saturdays, that sells succulents/cacti and potentially other houseplants/exotics as well? I'm not interested in outdoor stock (trees/grasses/annuals/etc). [more inside]

Cool and quirky in San Antonio

Moving to Boerne/San Antonio next week. Looking for two things: cool places/shops/places to visit; and web sites. I want to know about the one cemetery that has the coolest old statues, the park that offers the best secret hideouts, the store that has the weirdest hand made tchotchkes. Two particular items of interest: fabric stores (NOT Joann's - I want the cool, local place); and a place to get very nice wood for woodworking, since the hubby likes to make stuff, including guitars. Music stores would also be welcome. I'm an interior designer, and would love an introduction to the "to the trade" stores/warehouses in the area, too. Web sites that will help me get to know the area. Especially as I'm a stay at home mom, and I'd love to meet other parents and find cool places to take my kids. These could be business web sites, organizations, blogs, you name it. For the record, I'm not religious at all and I lean very liberal, so super conservative stuff is definitely not what I'm after. Thanks, mefites!

Restaurant recommendations in San Antonio

We're a couple of poor students who'll be travelling through San Antonio on our anniversary, and we'd like to get a nice memorable lunch or dinner there without going broke. We don't much care how formal it is — super-fancy and super-casual are both okay, as is anything in between — as long as the atmosphere is basically pleasant and cozy. (Bonus points for friendly neighborhood-ish joints, or places with good people-watching.) But the main thing is we're looking for the sort of restaurant where you sigh happily after the meal and say "man, I haven't had an XYZ that good in a long time." [more inside]

Hot or not?

What was the hottest official temperature measured in San Antonio, Texas each year since the 1950s? Today San Antonio had its 45th day of 100+ degree weather this year. I remember years in the 1970s when SA had no 100 degree days at all, but a friend doesn't believe it.

Headed for Castroville...

Where do people in San Antonio look for furnished, short-term rentals, sublets, or house shares? I am looking for a ten-week rental in western San Antonio or Castroville, TX. Craigslist is crammed full of realtor spam, and there are no separate "by-owner" listings. The San Antonio paper is full of realtor spam as well. Castroville-specific information would be spectacular.
