World's largest free breakfast on Friday

At 4:30 a.m. Friday volunteers at the San Antonio Stock & Rodeo's kickoff Cowboy Breakfast — the world's largest free breakfast, according to the Guinness Book of World Records — will be knee-deep in eggshells and thick-cut bacon. You are invited to join the anticipated 50,000 people expected to attend breakfast from 4:30 to 8:30 a.m. in the parking lot of Cowboys Dance Hall (3030 NE Loop 410). A mechanical bull ride and gunslingers will be entertaining the crowd. If you can't make it to the breakfast, Cowboys is opening at 6 a.m. for an "after party" featuring live music.

If rainy days and Mondays get you down, you're not alone. The Monterey in Southtown closed its Monday dinner service recently after a six-month run. Some diners feared this was a sign of an impending closure, but rest assured: the Monterey is here to stay, according to owner Chad Carey. "Monday was usually our slowest night, and it was more important that we have a day for menu development," Carey said. "Plus, it allows us the flexibility to do special events, beer and wine dinners, things like that." The inventive gastropub is still open for dinner Tuesdays through Saturdays and brunch on Sundays.
