The City of San Antonio has just completed renovations on the 1993-era Alamodome.  The 64,000 seat dome with sprawling parking lot sits just the east side of I-37 from downtown. The nearly quarter century old dome was widely seen as being in need of updating, and the city has done that. Mayor Ron Nirenberg noted to the 100-person crowd the kinds of events they targeted the 60 million dollars in renovations to attract.

A fascinating gallery opening, an artful movie and Buddy Guy. There's a lot to do this weekend; this is just a snapshot. First off tonight--a photographer with a curiously titled exhibition.

"Miles per hour" Adam Rodriguez laughed. He and Jim Glasscock did something really unusual last year.

"He and I decided to ride our bikes from the Canadian Border in Montana, back to Rock Springs, where he's from."
