New Year's Eve in San Antonio

We celebrated NYE in San Antonio with our friends, the Hoffmans.  We enjoyed a dinner at a great local Mexican restaurant.  We had (I know you all are dying to know what we ate) sweet potato tacos (actually I think they were called something different, but same idea).  Sounds gross, but they were gooood.

We decided to venture out to the Haagen Dazs for ice cream, only to find that they were closed.  :(  But! We found a neat little place that had frozen yogurts/ice cream.  I laughed so hard when my friend Joy told me that she asked if they had mint chocolate chip.  The young guy looked and scraped enough to to give her a sample and then proceeded to tell her that he was out of it. hahaha  Her response "Great.  So, I can taste what I'm NOT having."

We ate dinner New Year's night at a great little Texas BBQ place on the Riverwalk.  You have to understand that this riverwalk is extremely narrow and has no guard rails.  The path is mostly right at the edge of the river, but occassionally winds inward a bit and allows for some restaurant seating right at the river's edge.  So this restaurant had a small seating area right at the river's edge, which is where we sat.  At the end of the meal, we got ready to leave and I pushed my chair back and heard a gasp!  My dining chair fell into the river and was sinking and flowing away.  A nice man helped me pull the chair out of the river.  But oh, my.   Where else would I lose a dining chair in a river?

We were also very lucky that we ended up leaving on Jan 3rd because you know what was happening on Jan 3rd?  They were draining the river and cleaning it.  They get out all of the cameras, cell phones, and I bet some chairs too! LOL  Actually, it would have been pretty darn interesting to see what all was in the bottom of the three foot deep river.
