BITE
1012 S. Presa Street
San Antonio, TX 78204

Fiesta! just got a twist of lime behind the bar at Bite this month. Bartender April Cook is the freshest face mixing up fabulous cocktails like the peachy watermelon summer in a glass called The Lotus. Or practice your French, but good luck keeping your flower crown on after you order a Bite Violet (pronounced vee-oh-lay). It’s a grown-up grape cool-aid with grape liqueur, strawberry vodka and a PopRocks rim. Because it’s not a Fiesta! party without a fabulous cocktail from Bite.

It’s almost 5pm, and you and your SO are still not sure if you want to look into each other’s eyes over the open fire and share a bottle of pinot noir or go out with the masses … but wait, you forgot to make reservations a month ago! Either that or you and your gal pals have no dates and want to wine and dine each other, and you have no reservations. Let us help.

Here are 5 things you can do tonight after 5pm without reservations… So go ahead, wine and dine your valentine.

1. Sukeban Sushi is taking first come first serve seating all night long, and it has a paired dinner with rosé. Who needs roses when you have sparkling bottles and sushi flowing like a river.

2. Joyride Texas, get your sweat on at both locations! You can check out Leah’s class at 5:30pm on Broadway or head over to the Alon location- there are 2 classes and your first class is free. Bring your sweetie and try something different together.

3. Kimura: Nothing says I love you like slurping some noodles with your lover. It's free parking today for Downtown Tuesday, so you can spend some extra dough on a specialty cocktail. May we suggest the Ginger Geisha? It’s incredible.

4. Drinks: Just say I love you with a liquid diet at The Last Word, which is hosting a dessert and cocktail tasting starting at 8pm.

5. Il Forno: Go for the pizza and stay for the cozy atmosphere without the hoopla.  You won’t find white tablecloths, but you will find some of the best pizza in town, and the fire will be blazing, that is for sure.
