You may want to venture out an include the scout bar, Redland Roadhouse, etc. They are still in the area of Stone Oak.

Oh and Eden's Patio, Yacht Club, Coco .... We have so much popping up in the area around 281 and 1604 that are just outside the Stone Oak Area. I can say that I am 41 and I am not old at all. when I was in my 20s though my preference to going out to bars was to dance, dance, dance all night long. Doesn't seem that bars cater to that much anymore. Most people seem to just stand around and if you want to dance there is music but no dedicated dance floor. That was my opinion when I did venture to Ivy Rooftop, Back Porth, etc. awhile back. Glad I grew up in the Washington DC area where dance clubs really do exist.

Might want to call Scout Bar before venturing out.....according to mysa.com they were shut down by TABC for failing to pay their taxes.

Go to the Seagull on Wednesday for dollar beer night, it's a young college crowd. Also, Stone Oak is full of Mexican nationals out partying.

-It was late and I had drank a decent amount my spelling was bound to be off

-If you cannot stand seeing race/class discussed in a realistic form via a certain perspective then you should probably steer clear of a reality-based message board altogether

-Just because you dislike a description doesn't negate the credibility of it

-Alamo Heights is a minuscule minority of a minority within a minority in respect to who resides there. Sure it is white yet numerically speaking it is nothing in comparison to stone oak. The only people that care about Alamo Heights are Alamo Heights residents and there are very few of them, so few that they might as well not be mentioned in comparison to stone oak or anywhere of comparable size/importance.


Yes I know the RIM area is the truly white area in respect to attendance. Notice the fact in my post that I live in stone oak yet had never been to it's bars? Hmmmmm now an intelligent person would conclude he must be somewhere else and for a reason......I'll let those who deemed me "clueless" figure that one out.

It is still the nicest area in town which also includes Terrel Hills. There is also Central Market, by far the best H-E-B in town, the Country Club, Incarnate Word, proximity to downtown and the airport, as well as being in a centralized location.

Typos and grammatical errors are not even relevant to the discussion so should perhaps not even be brought up, everyone understood it fine, and context is more important.

Just because someone points out your views are verging on being a bit too racialist does not mean they cannot stand it and it also really is not an invitation to tell them not to post here.

But basically you just want to hang out in areas that are majority white and if they are not then you find that somehow not being a favorable experience?

While your view is fine, if that is what it is, judging whether a business establishment is good or not based on racial factors is going to be noticed.

Your review was fine I thought and a bit humorous.

You know, Vermont is about 98% white. Perhaps you'd feel more at home there? You wouldn't have to (gasp) rub elbows with those of us who have a tad more melanin.

Na I'll stay in Texas thanks though =)


Witnessing this just affirmed what I had assumed was the case as well as proving true what most my friends who've already moved to Austin/Dallas have been saying in respect to San Antonio for years. Now there is no question in my mind that San Antonio is dying in more ways than one. Already have interests in the Austin area, now just have to get out of the proverbial crumbling cave that is San Antonio in respect to young educated people.

I am just surprised that you are a UTSA alumni and just finding out the racial makeup of the patrons in the bars in the area. Is this your first time in this place called Stone Oak? You sound like you dont go out much.
