San Antonio hosts an abundance of fun and exciting events throughout the year, but the one starting today in Downtown might be a little more tasty. Bud Light, The Taste is an event that showcases tastings from several restaurants on Houston Street and the River Walk in an effort to acquaint visitors with the area’s vast dining options.

Residents of the SouthSide love being able to drive just a few minutes to downtown to hang out on the RiverWalk and enjoy the array of restaurants. But with the growing options right in the area, from restaurants, to entertainment, to the thriving employment opportunities, it's possible to never leave. 

Several large employers including the San Antonio Toyota Plant, the mixed-use Brooks City Base, the new Texas A&M University campus, and Eagle Ford Shale-related companies including Halliburton and Schlumberger have created a strong local employment base. New SouthSide businesses such as FMC Technologies, nicknamed the “Lowes of Eagle Ford Shale,” the new two-story HEB supermarket, and the Greater Mission Recreational YMCA, coming soon, are also feeding the revitalization of the area. The area’s leading masterplanned community, Mission del Lago, provides needed housing for a variety of buyers with spacious, modern residences from national homebuilders Lennar and D.R. Horton.
