There’s a special celebration on the South Side on Saturday.
“It’s really a way to present the newly-renovated Mission Drive-In," said Gemini Ink’s Ben Tremillo.
The iconic, re-imagined and refurbished Mission Drive-In is hosting an event called Paletas y Poesía — popsicles and poetry.
“It’s a free event, so we’re going to have free paletas, and of course poetry," said Tremillo. "We’re going to have some community poets that are reading out there. And then the San Antonio Poet Laureate Laurie Ann Guerrero is going to be reading as well."
A new stage work by the Jump-Start Performance Co. called "Tales of Lost Southtown" documents one of San Antonio’s legendary neighborhoods. The production has a preview this Sunday, February 23, at 3 p.m.
“An insight into the quirky and funny, and sometimes disturbing, aspects of the strange characters that live in the Southtown neighborhood," said Erik Bosse, who created the work.
