Around Town: Critic's Pick

Best Place to Get High in Public

Vacant Building
Anywhere (but mainly Downtown)

We’ll level with you, this was a toughie because being high in public can be kind of a nightmare for some folks, present company included. But, it struck us that there’s a place where you’re unlikely to run into anyone else, yet which lacks the heavily policed vibe even the most expansive public parks or grimiest bars seem to boast. This is a secret druggies have been using FOR YEARS—the vacant building. Best part: They’re everywhere in San Antonio! If there’s not one in your ’hood, take your pipe downtown, since nearly a third of property there is uninhabited day and night. Second best part: You’ll actually be doing the City of San Antonio a favor. Currently, it’s much easier for the City to take care of these pockets of blight if they can be proved habitually dangerous. Say, if the wrong kind of element was caught repeatedly loitering in the vicinity getting high. While you’re toking, snorting, shooting or what have you, cast your glazed, red eyes around and take note of any potential structural dangers too; that can help strengthen the case against negligent property owners who are likely sitting on the bummer buildings waiting for SA’s seller’s market to get hot enough to unload the pile of crap for a pile of cash. Though the SAPD is unlikely to appreciate your civic service if they bust you, at least you’ll know you’re not a total drain on society.
