Rick Springfield

Considering it’s been 33 freaking years since Australian power-popper Rick Springfield topped U.S. charts pining over “Jessie’s Girl,” and there’s been no indication of a change in relationship status, “the point is probably moot,” indeed. Whether you’re Rick Springfield’s obsessive songwriting persona or a Springfield fan who’s spent the cost of a utility bill or two to watch Springfield play “stripped-down” solo acoustic versions of his hits and “new songs never played in public before,” it’s probably best not to hold your breath for that single unrequited crush to come through. There’s plenty of fish in Springfield’s discography, after all. How about “Everybody’s Girl”? As a song, it’s a pretty terrible piece of early ‘80s slut-shaming, but the subject at least seems to be keeping her options open. The inspiration for the spacey synths and unexpectedly sincere falsetto in “Inside Silvia” seems like a nice lady, but seeing as it’s 2015, “The Man That Never Was,” Springfield’s collaboration with Foo Fighter Dave Grohl, is the most progressive choice.

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.
