1604: Market Report for San Antonio 78254 - 10/22/09 06:05 AM
San Antonio 78254
Yet another hot area for builders looking for new areas of town to develop, 78254 faces similar problems to 78251 in that builders rushed to the area, but when the bottom fell out, they were left holding the bag.  Add to this a traffic snarl with this side of the 1604 and you have an area that's destined for greatness, but is now facing some of the holdups that the Stone Oak area has experienced.  If homes continue to come on the market at or nearly at the same rate as they are being bought, expect to see … (0 comments)

1604: Brasserie Pavil - Twitter Specials All Day Long - San Antonio, Texas - 08/06/09 10:44 AM
Brasserie Pavil in San Antonio, Texas
Everyone loves French Fries.  Brasserie Pavil is so French, they even call them Frites.  San Antonio's first true French-style Brasserie is taking over Twitter.  Ask any social media user in San Antonio for a list of the hottest spots for food and drink and you'll hear the name Brasserie Pavil at the top of the list.
I was introduced to the restaurant through the social circles of Twitter and loved what they were doing long before I entered their building.  Brasserie Pavil tweets daily specials, what's fresh today (especially with their oysters and fish), and … (4 comments)

1604: San Antonio's Share Of The Economic Stimulus Money - 03/07/09 08:45 AM
I've always had a fascination with highway interchanges.
When I first moved to San Antonio, I noticed the lack of them at many key intersections.  The highway system here had some problems if you ask me.  If there's one thing that San Antonio takes care of though, its our roads.  Although the constant construction is a nightmare for those of use who travel on our roads, its better to see progress (even slow progress) being made than none at all.  With all the construction, I tend to marvel at the feats of human engineering that are taking place.  Ever driven Eastbound … (11 comments)

1604: San Antonio Camera Phone: Traffic on Loop 1604 at Bandera Road - 02/12/09 12:53 PM

 
San Antonio Camera Phone.
Recently I started uploading some of my random shots of San Antonio taken with my Blackberry to my blog at www.rerockstar.com.  I've found it to be a great way to share some of my jaunts around town and the things I see with a little bit of a story behind what I was seeing.  There's no real rhyme or reason to the photos, they are just images I saw and thought I'd take a quick snap of.  This particular image was taken in my car a few weeks ago as I was heading westbound on … (9 comments)

KB Home's recent announcement of plans to build smaller homes in community stirs up a lot of feelings.
KB Home decided to build some new floorplans in their community at Sundance Trails and Sundance Ridge recently and it has been causing a bit of a stir.  The communities, located off Potranco outside the 1604, started with brick front homes and two or three car garages ranging from $125,000 and went up into the $200,000s.  Now KB Home is moving in with floorplans starting at $93,995 that are smaller and may be built with siding instead of … (7 comments)

1604: First there were werewolves in London, now we've got coyotes in San Antonio. - 11/28/08 04:23 PM

San Antonio is full of wildlife, but I never expected to see a coyote, even though I was sure we had them.  Ok, so there probably were coyotes long before I ever settled in San Antonio and probably ten times as many before anyone really settled here at all.  Nonetheless, I was impressed as I caught this picture a few days ago.  I spotted this one as I was leaving my office, just by the side of the road.  My office is over on Paesanos Parkway (right inside the 1604 between Bitters and NW Military) and as I was driving … (2 comments)
