Conduct important drinking business at the San Antonio Cocktail Conference The cocktails will be flowing like water… strong, alcoholic water.

You may think you don’t need an educational seminar on a Moscow Mule, but you definitely do.

Wear beads and drink beer at the Mardis Gras River Parade and Festival Watch some dudes in masks float down the river on purple river barges and then swing by La Villita for the real reason you should check out the parade: gumbo and jambalaya. Douse it all in Crystal hot sauce and live in peace.

Watch Kawhi Leonard and the Spurs destroy the Golden State Warriors Kawhi is going to come out feisty as hell for this game. Prediction: 35 points, 10 steals, and six blocks. Steph Curry will only hit, like, seven three-pointers. Did I just jinx it?
