The Friday Five

Your weekly dose of weekend adventure:

1. Watch a Movie with Live Music: The show will feature the San Antonio Symphony performing on stage as the Pirates of the Caribbean: The Curse of the Black Pearl screens simultaneously behind them. Order something with rum to get into full pirate mode!

2. Go shopping: Local Native American vendors gather at Mission San Juan Capistrano for a market featuring hand-crafted jewelry, paintings, embroidery, traditional medicines and Native American cuisine.

3. Find a New Book: Brought to you by K23 Gallery, Bookworm: a Fair for Book Lovers is an adult version of the book fairs that you remember so fondly from your grade-school years. The fair will include offerings from vendors that include zines, indie booksellers, publishers, and local artists/designers with various swag along with sets from Joshua K. Swenson, DJ Elocuencia (repping Chulita Vinyl Club) and Mr. Glenn.

4. Celebrate Your Mom: San Antonio takes on Madrid, Spain, at this Tricentennial event combining food tastings from area restaurants, Spanish imports, a USPA polo tournament on Saturday and a Mother’s Day Brunch on Sunday. 50% of the ticket sales will go to the Junior League and their community efforts.

5. Listen to Music in the Park: Ruby City will host a night of music in collaboration with KRTU 91.7 FM- Trinity University. Music by indie/soul band The Foreign Arm serves as the ideal backdrop while enjoying complimentary Frozé, wine, beer and food by The Box Street Social food truck. This performance, with a strong female lead, complements the current exhibition, “Reclaimed,” an all-female exhibition featuring works by Laura Aguilar, Judy Dater, Lorraine O’Grady, Linda Pace, Annette Messager and Lara Schnitger, among others.
