Bekah McNeel was born and bred in San Antonio. She said of her story that it's so San Antonio that you could "wrap it up as a taco and eat it for breakfast."

Fundamentally it is a love story, and every great love story has a castle. This castle just happens to be a fixture of one of San Antonio's oldest neighborhoods.

This story was recorded April 3 at Brick for the Worth Repeating show with the theme "Tricentennial."

 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.
