Pearl Brewery

Hotel Emma

It's a series of gatherings for those who treasure the spoken and written word.  Sherry Kafka Wagner created the gatherings, and they grew out of her love for literature. Because of that, she spent a lifetime buying and reading books. Recently, she gave them all away.

From theater to Canciones to Joe Ely – TPR's Arts and Culture Reporter Jack Morgan says the weekend is packed with fun.

Friday at the Pearl features Canciones, which is all about "celebrating Texas music and Texas songs with artists that really have a San Antonio connection," Rosie Reyes says about the showcase, which happens every last Friday of the month through September.

Four months ago, pianist and bandleader Brent "Doc" Watkins opened a new club at the Pearl Brewery dedicated to America's music: jazz. But the Texas twist is right there in the name: Jazz, TX. It's the Pearl's first venue dedicated to music, although the menu is tasty enough to lure culinary connoisseurs as well. I sat down earlier this fall for an interview with Doc about the club, the music, and his life in both.

It's a big weekend with outstanding weather predicted. I've found that great music, free trees,  and Kinky Boots are on the horizon. First off, starting tonight, music from some of the biggest black entertainers of the recent past. The Carver Cultural Center's Teresa Vasquez-Romero:

"Etta James, Sarah Vaughn and Dinah Washington."

If you’re looking for something to do this weekend I've been on the prowl, and have some ideas. First off, why be restrained to just staying in San Antonio when you can go interstellar? San Antonio Symphony’s President David Gross explains.

“The Symphony is presenting music from John Williams. Star Wars, Superman, ET, Raiders of the Lost Ark, Schindler’s List—all these great sound tracks.”

I asked "The dress code is going to be a bit lax this weekend?" Gross chuckled.
