PAX South

Upon its debut in 2015, PAX South quickly rallied San Antonio’s ravenous gaming community, reportedly attracting “well into the tens of thousands.” Part of a family of gaming expos under the umbrella of Penny Arcade — an “online phenomenon” formed in 1998 by Jerry “Tycho” Holkins and Mike “Gabe” Krahulik — the three-day affair beckons gamers of every imaginable stripe with offerings that run the gamut from video game tournaments and play areas to an arena showcasing the world’s “most talented, brutal, and merciless” competitors, a tabletop indie showcase for analog enthusiasts and even a dedicated Diversity Lounge for attendees who count themselves among the under-represented or simply “want to learn a little more about [their] friends.” Throw in cosplayers galore (we spotted Pikachu, Mario, Boba Fett and a female Riddler among many other colorful characters at last year’s expo), a packed “Pinny Arcade” (an entire “ecosystem” of collectible pins for sale or trade) and a stacked schedule of performances (spanning “the full spectrum of nerdy music”) and even the non-gamer should have plenty of opportunities to get their geek on.

Chicken-on-a-Stick
Fiesta favorite chicken-on-a-stick is basically the supreme food booth snack from all of Fiesta. San Antonians look forward to eating it all year, and usually commemorate their first chicken-on-a-stick of the season with a selfie. It’s inspired chicken-on-a-stick necklaces, earrings, stickers and more from local designers, and has appeared on menus across SA so folks can get their fix. Thank goodness for that.
