    Better Block Project This Saturday

    Posted by on 12/5/12 at 02:12pm

    It’s time for another city-scale pop-up! This Saturday brings the third (and final?) Better Block project to San Antonio’s Plaza de Armas. Come out to experience a completely revitalized street, if only for a day. I’m most excited to visit the happenings in the  Spanish Governor’s Palace Courtyard (one of my favorite places in the city) and if my dog’s lucky, I’ll bring her to the Annual Blessing of the Animals….
