306 Pearl Pkwy., Suite 101, (210) 314-3929
It might not be the prettiest patio at The Pearl complex, but the surrounding view — which often includes frolicking kiddos, puppies and acro-yoga sessions — more than makes up for its simplicity. Happy hour at Cured means half-off house cocktails, select beers and snacks like fried quail legs. Or stick with a charcuterie board. Through Saturday, July 2, Cured will offer a new "Charc Week" board in honor of Discovery Channel's Shark Week. Stop in for shrimp pastrami, smoked salmon rillettes and crawfish sausage and new cocktails such the Blood in the Water, a bottled sharktail made of fresh blueberries and gin.
