On the flip side of posh, get a true San Anto experience and visit Tony's Bar (206 Brooklyn Ave., 210-227-4551). Yes, it's cash only, but the libations are hella cheap and Tony Lopez and his staff will take care of your brood. It's one of the Current's favorite places to watch the Spurs game and will be yours soon, too.

This one's a bit of a two-fer as Freetail technically has two locations. There's the original brewpub with fun brewspirements at 4035 N. Loop 1604 W., Suite 105 that features a legit beer list and even better food menu so you can take hungry visitors to grab a bite. Or take them way south to the brewery's taproom at 2000 S. Presa St. where your guests can learn about Freetail's brewing mantra and enjoy a flight to sample all the offerings.

The St. Mary's Strip is having a bit of a renaissance and leading that charge is Danny Delgado, owner of Faust Tavern (517 E. Woodlawn Ave., 210-257-0628), Hi-Tones, La Botanica, Phantom Room and soon The Squeezebox. Faust edges out sister Hi-Tones (though you should definitely still go there and have a pickle shot) with Crossroads Kitchen, which serves Southern fare until 2 a.m., its spooktastic vibe (there's a ouija board inside!) and laid-back atmosphere.
