This weekend, take the extra day off to do something special. Whether you want to do dinner with friends, check out a play, or make time for an event you wouldn't normally go to, we have you covered.


On Friday, combine two of the greatest things in life: San Antonio tacos and literature. Gemini Ink will be hosting a free reading with three authors at Viva Tacoland from 6:30-10 PM--perfect for date night or dinner with friends.
