If the $10 surcharge has deterred you from taking in all religious splendor and gilded extravagance of the San Antonio Museum of Art’s “Highest Heaven: Spanish and Portuguese Colonial Art of the Roberta and Richard Huber Collection,” take a look at the bells and whistles of this summer date night. Besides two-for-one admission and enlightening tours of the exhibition, the evening includes live acoustic world music from local husband-and-wife duo Jorge & Nicole, a cash bar stocked with sangria, gourmet tacos for purchase from the Mr. Meximum food truck and an outdoor screening of Brazilian director Walter Salles’ Ernesto “Che” Guevara biopic The Motorcycle Diaries. Based on a memoir that’s been likened to a cross between Karl Marx’s seminal work Das Kapital and Dennis Hopper’s road-trip classic Easy Rider, the 2004 film stars Gael García Bernal as Guevera in the midst of the pivotal 1952 journey that transformed him from medical student to Marxist revolutionary.

$15-$20 per couple, 7-11pm Fri, Jul. 29, San Antonio Museum of Art, 200 W. Jones Ave., (210) 978-8100,
