I like the idea in theory, but I wouldn't aspire to replicate Houston's Theatre district - apart from the theatres, it has nothing else. Theatre district usually implies places to eat as well as other things to do in the near vicinity. There are a few places in the mega complex, but that's it. The entire area is otherwise dead. We stayed in a hotel near the theatre thinking it'd be convenient and it was awful trying to find a place to eat on a weekend.

At least San Antonio's meagre Theatre District (if you consider Majestic/Empire as a district) has food options that aren't just 2-3 college bars.

Very true! You should try Rudy's if you have some time. Unfortunately the problem with Rudy's is the exact opposite of BMs.

I have been wanting to post this but didn't want to make a big deal out of it. We ate at Rudy's when we first moved here because we heard about how good it was. While we were eating there, a cockroach crawled down the wall, across the floor and over our shoes. It was nasty, now every time I hear someone mention that place I just smile politely and say "oh, yeah we've tried that place". Just had to share our experience!

well, in this case, why not make it better? a few theaters and some restaurants.
