World Heritage Festival

This collaborative five-day festival takes place across the city in celebration of the San Antonio Missions and to raise money for nonprofit organizations and projects that “preserve, maintain, promote and connect” the city to its world heritage. Although some events have already sold out (like Thursday’s Sunset Dinner at Mission San Juan), there’s still plenty to do. The festival kicks off Wednesday with an opening reception for “Entre la Sombra: Life Along the Missions,” an exhibition of contemporary works inspired by “oral histories, cultural mapping, photographs, and maps” (6-9pm, Plaza de Armas Gallery, 115 Plaza de Armas). On Friday, join fellow San Antonians at Mission Concepción for the free event Restored by Light, where attendees can enjoy tours and activities for the kids, a concert by the USAA Band and Chorus, food trucks and a projection light show (6-10pm, 807 Mission Road). Grab your bicycle for Saturday’s Tour de las Misiones Bike Ride & Walk at the Mission Park Pavilion ($25-$45, registration from 6-7:30pm, ride & walk at 8am, 6030 Padre Drive). After getting some exercise, hang back at the pavilion for Mission Pachanga (9am-5pm), a free, family-friendly festival with arts and crafts, food and live music by Piñata Protest, Chulita Vinyl Club, Grupo Frakaso, Eva Ybarra and Los De Esta Noche. There’s also a Celebratory Mass on Sunday at at Mission Concepción (10am), so try not to drink too many Lone Stars.

Dad's Karaoke
2615 Mossrock Dr., (210) 267-5703, facebook.com/dadskaraoke
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.
