Let's go to Schilo's downtown.

How long has it been since you have gone downtown? Well that's too long. The weather is gorgeous for a walk on the riverwalk and if you haven't heard of Schilo's (Pronounced She-Lows), they are a German/American deli with great food, great home-made rootbeer and good prices.

I picked Tuesday night because the city parking lots are free on this night. There is a parking garage right next door on Commerce but please note "IT IS NOT FREE!" The closeset free lot is on Navaro at Houston Street by the downtown Nix. There are several inexpensive lots a little closer by La Villita.

This resturaunt closes at 8:30 and they appreciate us getting out as close to that as possible. You will be ordering off the menu but because it is a large group there will be an automatic tip of 15%. The norm nowadays is 18%, so, if you feel the urge tip a little extra. The food is great, the portions are large and the prices are reasonable. (All meals are less than $10.00.

There were quite a few people that couldn't make it during the week so I am going to try and do this again on Friday or Saturday arround the begining of December so that we can all see the gorgeous Christmas lights on the riverwalk and downtown. Hope to see you at one or the other.

    I had a great time last night at Schilo's. Met some new people and the Pea soup was great.

    Sounds like pea soup is the hit. Would love to go but don't get home from bowling. Till after 4

    I really would like to go, but try not to drive downtown, especially at night. Is there anyone going who lives near 410 and Marbach or 410 and Bandera that I could carpool with?

    I prefer 11/5 over 10/29, if that debate is still open.

    Choir practice on Tuesday nights, so I can't make this one.

    Find out about free parking on Tuesdays after 5 PM at http://www.downtowntuesday.com/ BTW, for those who may not be aware of it, locals pronounce this place as "She-lows" (accent on the first syllable).

    Tuesday nights aren't good for me because I have church choir practice from 7 to 8:30. Most any other night works for me, though.

    Love the riverwalk. For those up to it, I usually walk from Pearl to downtown and explore and then return. There's free parking at Pearl too.

    I love Schilo's split pea soup and frosty-mug root beer!

    Not often I'll RSVP when the time and date haven't been determined, but for Schilo's I ll make an exception. It's getting to be soup weather and they have the best split pea soup in town, with or without brautwurst.
