Ireland
"Aren’t I adorable? I have a personality that matches. I love people and dogs, so much that sometimes I get excited and jump. But hey, you would too if you had as much love inside as I do! You might notice my back legs are a little odd. That’s caused by my CCL, the dog equivalent of your ACL. The folks here can tell you about it and how to fix it. Does it stop me from being my happy, frisky self? Woof, no! Nothing slows down Ireland. Take me home and I will add great joy to your life."

Taco House

People also brag about the fabulous chile relleno, if you’re into that. Be sure to go for the breakfast and lunch specials.

Have a photoshoot in front of the official Christmas tree at Travis Park
Free, 301 E Travis St, (210) 207-3677, travisparksa.com
It’s Christmas season now that the city’s official Christmas tree has been lit. The official lighting of the tree takes place the day after Thanksgiving, so after that, holiday-themed dates are fair game. If only shopping centers could get the memo and not start playing Christmas music the day after Halloween.
