My trip from Phoenix to San Antonio started off right last Thursday, with a stop at the new Barrio Cafe inside Sky Harbor International Airport. A quick two hour flight later, and Camille and I were safely in the beautiful and humid city of San Antonio, TX. After checking in to our hotel, The Grand Hyatt, we made a night of walking the famous Riverwalk. Our first stop was to Durty Nelly's Irish Pub for a cold beer and jalapeno poppers. Our waiter suggested we head to Dick's Last Resort for good time. For those that have not experienced the pleasure embarrassment of this sarcastically themed restaurant and bar, just know that it is called Dick's for a reason. A perfect example can be seen in the lovely hat made by our waitress for my friend, since it was Camille's first time to the restaurant. 

The next morning, I am proud to say that the first thing we did was work out at the amazing facilities in side our hotel. It was a necessary evil after all the alcohol and bar food calories from the prior evening. The rest of our morning was spent at the Alamo and historic Menger Hotel, which houses a white glove style restaurant and many unique shops. All in all, a great start to a mini girl's vacation. I hope you had a lovely weekend and that your week is starting off well!! Thank you for reading Naked n Hungry:)!
