Need suggestion help Feb 8th-10th

I will be in San Antonio staying at the Marriott Riverwalk in Feb. I plan to do the usual downtown things such as touring the riverwalk, market square, alamo. I do need to know if Bourdreauxs (I think) is worth dining at? If the Tower of Americas is still under construction? and What things outside of downtown are worth renting a car for? I don't plan on going to six flags, the zoo or sea world though. Any suggestions would be appreciated.

Boudro's is definitely worth dining at - try the guacamole salad made right at your table - probably some of the best I've ever had. The Tower will more than likely still be under construction, but you might get lucky. Renting a car for out of town things is good idea. Check out these web sites for ideas:

If you like shopping, then Main Street in Fredericksburg would be fun.

Authentic Texan Music is cool also.

Casbeers is a soulful little (about 100 seats) spot with great enchiladas and burgers a short cab ride up Blanco Rd. Check them out at www.casbeers.com

A quick drive to Helotes about 20 miles north towards Bandera gets you to John T Floores Country Store http://www.liveatfloores.com an authentic Texas dance hall.

Another great dance hall is Gruene Hall, about a 30 minute drive up I-35 just past New Braunfels www.gruenehall.com It's Texas’ oldest dance hall.

Luna is a nice listening room with a romantic ambiance. Music tends to be on the jazz side of things, but they book all kinds so check them out at http://www.lunalive.com/
