Worth Repeating

Roberto Adrian Martinez

 Fifty years ago, the city of San Antonio held the World’s Fair. The event brought the global attention, investment -- resulting in Hemisfair downtown -- and even some royalty. Anastacio Bueno was there.

Mike Sutter is a food writer for the San Antonio Express-News, and his story tonight is all about discovering the City through food. Back in 2016 he quipped that he wanted to replicate a series of taco reports he had done in Austin down here. The project would mean he ate at a different taco joint every day for 365 days.  Be careful what you wish for.

Veronica Davila traces her family line back to the original 16 families that founded San Antonio.  While that sounds like a big deal, she tells us it took a while for her to embrace it.

For years she avoided the Canary Islanders' garb that her mother proudly wore to events, sweating in the heat. It took a couple of decades and a reborn urban center for Veronica to fall back in love with the city of her birth. It wasn't long before she found herself sweating in the sun in full period attire.

Garrett Brnger is a reporter for San Antonio television station KSAT-12. Since our show was all about luck, you could say we were lucky to find him. We came into the show, as we sometimes do, with an eye to our audience to supply our final story of the night. After a half-dozen pitches from our wonderful listeners we found this polished gem of a story.

Yvette Benavides helps run the 1906, an art gallery at 1906 S. Flores with her husband. She wasn't always a small business owner, though. Yvette started out in insurance, and in her story she traces her path out of that line of work towards a life of love and art. The story leads through the Bay Area's tech industry and to San Antonio, a city she admits she had big reservations about.
