No one likes sleet during a picnic.

So, when Sunday’s continue threatened Houston Street Food, eventuality executive Cathy Siegel pulled a annual celebration inside a One Alamo Center building nearby, that authorised a charity-based epicurean cruise in a center of a highway to hurl along.

“It was still really gratifying in there, so a rain’s not going to get us down,” pronounced Siegel, a executive executive for a event’s initial organization, Houston Street Charities. “We were still means to celebrate, and feed someone else during a same time.”


The event, hold on a closed-off area of Houston Street between St. Mary’s and Navarro, is now in a third year. It is partial of a annual San Antonio Cocktail Conference and advantages a S.A. Food Bank’s Summer Food Service Program.

For $50, people can get their choice of baskets packaged with epicurean dishes from a chefs during Bohanan’s, Lüke, Citrus, Market on Houston and a Palm Restaurant. The culinary preference enclosed delicacies like crawfish boil potato salad and steep carnitas tortas, as good as specialty pastas, sandwiches and uninformed fruit. This year, a eventuality sole some-more than 150 baskets. Guests also were treated to drink and booze selections and live music.

Area proprietor Meredith Keller, a cocktail discussion veteran, found out about Houston Street Food during final year’s cocktail eventuality and motionless to give a cruise a shot Sunday.

“It feels good — it’s a fun time, good food, and it’s a concession to a food bank that’s going to be be really well-needed,” she said.

“We’re always looking for fun ways to move a area together, though we have to always consider about giving back,” Siegel said.

While a Houston Street widen of upscale bars, restaurants and other venues competence not elicit a tenure “neighborhood” during initial glance, a annual gift cruise shows how connected this village is, pronounced eventuality proffer Nicholas Cordero, a server during circuitously Bohanan’s Steakhouse.

“I live downtown, my whole lifestyle is formed around a use industry,” Cordero said. “All of a bars in this community, a restaurants, are all one outrageous family.”

So, while Siegel hopes destiny Houston Street Food guest are treated to a intended, outside experience, she pronounced relocating indoors sent a clever summary as well.

“At a least, currently we set a fashion (by relocating indoors) to uncover people that sleet won’t deter us from carrying a good time,” she said. “Again, this is not only about a dollars — it’s about a message: kids out there need food over a summer, and we didn’t have to (come to this) cruise to assistance them out by donating.”
