Backyard Adventures

Backyard Adventures showcases interactive science displays such as Night Vision, Bee’s Eye View, Giant Pumpkin Bonanza, Critter Calls, Giant Skipping Rope, Backyard Sports, Garden Golf and an Augmented Reality Garden Bed. Engaging visitors with science and technology, this exhibit enables visitors to continue discovering the wonders of our own backyards long after leaving the exhibition. Discover the outdoors from the perspective of a bee, take a walk through a digital garden to see plants grow in super time and investigate creatures that only come out at night. Backyard Adventures, created by Scitech and produced by Imagine Exhibitions, emphasizes the importance of staying healthy and active by showing visitors how much fun awaits outdoors and demonstrating that there is much more to our backyard than we imagine.Learn and experience that the backyard is full of science from the biological interactions between plants and insects, the zoology of nocturnal animals, the horticultural know- how that goes into growing giant vegetables, the mathematical genius needed to lay pavers to the feats of construction that can go on in the shed.

When “karaoke” is in the name, you can expect a venue name to have its shit together. This spot is perfect for times you just wanna get drunk and scream into a microphone. Slightly sleazy, the bar is a solid option for hours of uninhibited fun for just about anyone, especially first-timers trying to get their feet wet in the art of karaoke. Expect a crowd — or shall we say audience?

The White Rabbit
Look, most San Antonio music fans have no complaints with the Paper Tiger, a club that consistently brings tons of great touring acts to town. Even so, some who cut their teeth on the St. Mary's Strip still have fond memories of the White Rabbit, the venue that previously occupied the building. It's understandable that folks of a certain age, whether they played the older club or just caught shows there, would have some nostalgia tied up in the Rabbit.
