4. There’s a toilet seat museum
Possibly one of the most bizarre museums in the country is right off of Broadway in Alamo Heights, a municipality that San Antonio envelops. Barney Smith, the artist and proprietor, has hundreds of toilet seats with his unique art and etchings that can be visited by appointment only.
5. Barbacoa and Big Red is our official hangover cure
Did you have a little too much to drink Saturday night? Stop by a taqueria and pick up some barbacoa (slow-cooked meat from a cow’s head) and Big Red (a cream soda that’s, well, red). This cure is guaranteed to heal what ails you.
6. Beat the heat with paletas...
Paletas are essentially naturally flavored popsicles. In addition to milk-based flavors (vanilla, pecan, chocolate) you can order fruit-based ones (strawberry, mango, cucumber, watermelon, tamarind, or pineapple). Look for a person pushing a paleta cart in the parks downtown or stop at a store like SA Pops.
