Weekend Update

Howdy!  Hope everyone had a nice weekend.
Amy and I went to San Antonio for the weekend for a sort of mini Christmas getaway.  I've been battling what I initially thought was allergies, but which I now think might be a cold, so our trip was kind of slow paced and relaxed, but it was nice.  We visited the San Antonio Museum of Art, which ended up being really cool.  The museum has some really interesting collections, ranging from modern American art to more traditional and contemporary Latin American and Mexican art to some ancient Greek and Egyptian pieces.  The museum itself is housed in a building dating back to 1895, formerly housing the Lonestar Brewery.  Even if it didn't have a bunch of great art in it, it would still be a  really interesting and attractive building. 
We also went to Market Square and had a nice Mexican dinner at Paloma Blanca in Alamo Heights.  We stayed at The Menger.  The Menger was decked out in its holiday decorations, and the place was buzzing with activity, both from guests and the holiday parties that it was hosting.
So we had a nice trip to San Antonio. The city looks particularly festive around Christmastime.
We got home yesterday and did some dashing around to try to take care of some errands before the weekend was over.
The weekend went by quickly, but it was a good one!

I hope everyone is doing well.  The holiday season is building to a fever pitch.  Everyone stay merry! ;-)
