You heard us Mom and Dad – it’s a cocktail hunt. Bet you haven’t been this excited about a scavenger hunt since you were about seven years old, right? Come on down to the Botanical Gardens and forage for your cocktails! Discover the botanical flavors of edible plants hidden in the Garden. Hunt for plants that will be used in a garden cocktail, snap a photo of them (no plant collecting, please) and share on social media. A hidden pop-up bar in the Garden hosted by the San Antonio Cocktail Conference will provide refreshing cocktail samples utilizing the essence of edible plants. Hunt, snap, sip! This event is, of course, a 21 and over soiree. ID will be required. Admission is $20.00 which includes general admission.
Saturday, November 18th, 2017 from 12:00 pm to 2:00 pm at the San Antonio Botanical Garden, 555 Funston Pl, San Antonio.

The Magik Theatre, San Antonio’s professional family theatre, presents Shakespeare on the River – a free event celebrating all things Shakespeare. Theatre-goers can come early to enjoy food trucks along Villita Way and short Shakespeare performances by local performers. The highlight of this event is Arkansas Shakespeare Theatre’s The Taming of the Shrew. The company returns to San Antonio for a second year, having performed Twelfth Night at last year’s Shakespeare in the Park. Performances of The Taming of the Shrew are November 17th and 18th at 7:30 p.m. “Grab a seat close to the stage as AST transports you back to the lively and colorful days of old world Italy, where embracing adventure, music, and above all, the passion was a way of life. Through a flurry of song and spectacle, join the rambunctious and arrogant Petruchio in his quest to woo the unimpressed and headstrong “Kate the Cursed.” Inspired by Italian traditions of puppetry and commedia dell’arte, our players bring the audience right into the middle of the action. So come ready to play–they can’t tell the story without you!”
Friday, November 17th, 2017 and Saturday, November 18th, 2017 at 7:30 pm at Arneson River Theater at the Shops of La Villita, 418 Villita St, San Antonio.
