From fun at the Guadalupe to political humor to Chubby Checker--the weekend is full of fun.  On Saturday Chubby Checker hits town. Here he explains why the dance he started, The Twist, captivated the country.

That's San Antonio Museum of Art's Kelso Director, Katie Luber. We stood next to several red, steel sculptures that were in the shape of miniature house frames.
