I love Fiesta...every year My family and I have gone to see the Day Parade (only we would have a city holiday to party). Part of my family gets to our spot at unholy hours in the morning to be sure that we get our area, then the other half brings the food, drinks, and other things later. Only twice have I missed it...once when the schools made it the "bad weather make-up day" in '07 and once when I walked in it in '08.
You also know that Barbacoa is delicious with Big Red on Sundays.

Default Ice Houses,

The 7-11 convenience chain got their start in s.a. They were called a U-Tote-Em locally I believe. I can remember these stores as a child, around here...So all are really ice houses, ay ?

I just call all gas stations Valeros. No matter what city I'm in,or if it's a Valero or not. "Oh I need to run to a Valero..." I said it in Wisconsin one day and got the weirdest look. San Antonio much?

When you go to Walmart and you observe 90% of the people are wearing flip flops, shorts, tank tops, etc... even in the so called winter months.

I don't get it. What do people do when they are waiting for hours for a parade to start? Beside eat? I would be incredibly bored.
