Good, Clean Fun
From karaoke to pool to comedy, there are so many options for those of us unable to kill our brain cells with alcohol (yet).
1. Laugh Out Loud Comedy Club
With most of their shows geared toward those 18 and older, the Laugh Out Loud Comedy Club is a really fun(ny) entertainment alternative for minors. You can avoid annoying pre-teens and even try out your own comedy skills at one of the regular open mic nights. 618 NW Loop 410, (210) 541-8805, lolsanantonio.com.
2. Fast Eddie’s Billiards:
After 7pm, Fast Eddie’s becomes an 18+ establishment. Let the party begin! Eddie’s provides an opportunity to hone your pool skills, meet some new people and enjoy a low-key night of bank shots. Multiple locations, fasteddiesbilliards.com.
3. Asiana/Big Bang Karaoke
With space to accommodate around 10 people, and a wide variety of English and Korean karaoke songs, Big Bang Karaoke rooms can be rented for parties with friends. Although the food is pricey, the disco ball decor makes up for this shortcoming. 4408 Walzem, (210) 501-9448.
4. Kantina Karaoke Bar
On Friday and Saturday, there is a $10 cover charge for those under 21. Sing your heart out. 2512 SW Loop 410, (210) 344-4400, kantinakaraokebar.com.
LATE NIGHT BITES:
While our elders consume alcohol at night, we consume delicious queso, cinnamon rolls and s’mores, so at least we can keep up, calorically speaking.
A combination of bar, coffee shop and boutique eatery, there is something for everyone at this unique joint. Open until 2 a.m. every night and known for their tableside s’mores—they literally bring over sticks, marshmallows, graham crackers, chocolate and a small open flame—Halcyon is a welcome new Southtown spot. 1414 S Alamo, (210) 277-7045, halcyonsouthtown.com.
2. Lulu’s Bakery and Cafe
Featured on Man vs. Food, Lulu’s is home to the 3-pound cinnamon roll. Open 24/7, consider going around 3 a.m. on a Friday or Saturday. Why? You might get to witness a table full of drag queens from the neighboring clubs enjoying a bite to eat—a free show in it’s own way. 918 N Main, (210) 224-5001, luluscafeinsa.com.
3. Mi Tierra Café y Panadería
Despite being a staple San Antonio tourist restaurant, Mi Tierra is the perfect spot for locals in need of late night queso and tacos. Few tourists will be there past the witching hour, so enjoy the flashy décor and mariachi music without those annoying fanny packers taking over the joint. Open 24/7. 218 Produce Row, (210) 225-1262, mitierracafe.com.
