Brunch: Rosella at the Rand

Rosella's at the Rand

Ready for another San Antonio brunch recommendation???

This time we are moving a little deeper into Downtown San Antonio with Rosella at the Rand. If you live in San Antonio, you might have heard of this little café, since they have a few locations. And while all the locations are pretty good, today I’m going to focus on their newest location in the historic Rand building.

Class Axe San Antonio

Class Axe San Antonio

A few weeks ago, I got invited to a Social Media Night to check out a new place in San Antonio called Class Axe. I looked the place up online and was immediately intimidated. This place was all about axe throwing! Um, what?!? Crazy, I know!

I have very bad balance and hand-eye coordination! So I was very worried that I would hurt myself, or worse, someone else! Nonetheless, I went! What a surprise! Yes there was a lot of axe throwing, but the experience itself was amazing!

Dia de los Muertos

Today is Dia de los Muertos, or the Day of the Dead, the rich traditional Mexican holiday that remembers family and friends who have passed away, with altars (ofrendas), music, food, art, and more. It spans over two days, one day dedicated to the children (All Saints Day) and one for all that have passed (All Souls Day). Dia de los Muertos is not to be mistaken as a “Mexican Halloween”, but rather as cultural celebration of the living and dead. During this time you will see sugar skulls and marigolds all over the place! It’s absolutely stunning!

Have you seen Coco? It revolves around this holiday! To read more about how this tradition got started and how it’s celebrated, check out this article by NatGeo! Read More

Wicked

To say that I love musicals is an understatement. I dream of having a masquerade ball like in Phantom of the Opera, I know every word to Chicago, and I listen to The Greatest Showman instrumental when I study. Oh, and when Mamma Mia! 2 came out, that’s all I listened to for WEEKS! I might be a little obsessed…

So naturally, when I saw Wicked was coming to San Antonio I freaked out! I got access to pre-sale tickets and I sent them to bae with a little hint hint, it falls on our anniversary week, winky face, heart face emoji! And guess who got to see Wicked last night? THIS GIRL!!! Read More
