Business trip to San Antonio 8/23-27

Well, the itinerary is official now. Me and my boss's boss (he's not that bad, really) are going to be attending the national VPPA conference in San Antonio, TX Aug 24-27. At the Gonzalez conference center in Hemisfair Park or something like that, next to the Tower of the Americas, and two blocks from the Alamo (not the car rental folks). We'll be getting in around 4 or 5 pm to the hotel on the 23rd.

If anyone's around the area and/or familiar with San Antonio (TX SS has been helpful in the lounge post), just looking for some tourism advice. It'll be conference meetings all day until 4:30, but then free time afterwards. I'll be at the Hilton Palacio del Rio on S. Alamo St. If ya know any great places to go or better yet, places to AVOID, all info would be appreciated.

If by the rare chance anyone happens to be downtown San Anton and wants to stop by the hotel for a "beer summit" or drink of choice, by all means you'd be welcome. PM me for more details.

When I was there on business the best place to go was Dick's on the Riverwalk. It's a fun place to go eat and you'll have a great experience there. Another suggestion I got from locals there is to go to dirty Neil's also on the river walk.
