Top 10 Student Discounts
Published: August 20, 2013
7. Paciugo Gelato
Described as “smooth, creamy, aromatic” and “rich and silky,” Paciugo is downright delicious. It’s even more delectable when purchased at a 10 percent student discount. Stop by this cute shop for two college essentials—coffee and gelato. 999 E Basse, (210) 832-8820, paciugo.com.
8. Get Your Museum On
If you’re looking to impress your significant other, here’s some crucial advice: Branch out from that God-awful-but-you-think-it’s-romantic Chili’s date and do something different to broaden your horizons. Two of SA’s most notable museums offer discounts. The McNay Art Museum has a $10 admission with student ID. San Antonio Museum of Art is $5 with student ID. McNay Art Museum, 6000 N New Braunfels, (210) 824-5368, mcnayart.org; San Antonio Museum of Art, 200 W Jones, (210) 978-8100, samuseum.org.
9. San Antonio Symphony
Oh, you weren’t aware of the great cultural benefits your city has to offer? The first step is to put down the Solo cup—yes you heard me, this is not a drill. Set the red cup down, leave that sweaty frat party and call the Symphony ticket office to purchase a seat for the SA Symphony. Through the Student Single Ticket Discount Program, all college students can purchase tickets to any Classics, Pops or Family subscription series concert for half-off. (210) 554-1010.
10. The Raven Hookah Lounge
Dark Victorian with a creepy, steampunk, I-want-to-drink-your-blood vibe, The Raven is a true gem in the hookah bar rough (don’t let the vampire feel faze you). You will encounter an eclectic group of people—college kids, couples, hipsters, intense punks, possible strippers—and a commitment to local entertainment with live DJs, poets and musicians. On Thursday nights a student discount of 20 percent is offered, and on all other days there is a 10 percent discount. Don’t forget to ask for soap bubbles to blow smoke into—a great Instagram moment if you can master it. 1255 SW Loop 410, #133, (210) 673-3650, ravenhookah.com.
