WINNER: A Night in Old San Antonio

One of the best memes to circulate the interwebs is reflective of the magic that is NIOSA: A Where's Waldo image with the words "I'm at La Villita ... Over by the beer booth." You've gotta commit to an evening of NIOSA, to be sure, but how else can you take in the full scope that is the gloriousness of San Antonio from the fresh-fried puffy tacos at the Mexican Market to sausage samplers inside Sauerkraut Bend to steer on a stick in Frontier Town. And the event comes together with the help of more than 13,000 volunteers, so how much more San Anto can you get? There's nothing quite like the roving mosh pit of thousands of San Antonians from across the city, all dressed in their most festive garb, some navigating their way from beer booth to beer booth, some dodging wooden skewers left over from a medium rare Bongo-k-Bob, all in the spirit of Fiesta. Mmm, we can smell the Maria's Tortillas from here.
