15. Whataburger
What-a-medal! Whataburger is back with another fantastic 2017 Fiesta medal that features sparkly fries and both varieties of ketchup (that's Fancy and Spicy for all you non-Whatafans). The medal has already sold out in their online shop, so you better have something good to trade to get one.
16. St. Arnold Brewing
While not located in San Antonio, I know that plenty of people enjoy the brews of St. Arnold's. This year's medal features their eponymous Saint with a classic 8-bit feel. St. Arnold's is giving these medals away, but you have to sign up for their local newsletter to find out where they'll be.

17. Fideo Medal by Gorda Fabulosa
Roxanne Quintero, the woman behind Gorda Fabulosa, decided to make a handmade medal that was Puro San Antonio. The medal is created on a tile and has the Vermicelli logo on the front. But the true festiveness of the medal was how it was packaged with confetti colored fideo. She sold it for $8 and it's sold out now, but hopefully she will make more soon.

18. Bakery Lorraine
When you think of Bakery Lorraine, the first two things that come to mind are macarons and classy design. The bakery combined both of these things with their 2017 Fiesta medal by artist Jamie Stolarski. It's available at each of the bakeries for $10.

19. San Antonio Cocktail Conference Medal
If you're looking to score some highfalutin cocktails AND medals, look no further than the Got Medal event coming up on April 18. Stroll the bars of Houston Street (Bohanan's Bar, Esquire Tavern, Dorregos at Hotel Valencia Riverwalk, The Palm) and get a Fiesta medal to boot! Bohanan's will be giving away this medal from the Cocktail Conference that showcases the official drink of their 2017 event, the High-Jinx.

20. Big Red Fiesta Medal
Big Red, the "official" soft drink of San Antonio had a glittery Lotería inspired medal for 2017. Designed by high school student Joely Montoya, the card features a can of the soda with "Rojo Grande" underneath. The number 37 symbolizes the year that the drink was first made. Only 250 were made and given away in an online contest at the beginning of April, making this medal another hard-to-find for maniacs out there.
