I spent my day off on July 3rd working the food table in the reception hall for this.
Area same-sex couples recently walked the aisle First Unitarian Universalist Church of San Antonio as the church opened it doors to perform free wedding ceremonies on Friday for the city's LGBT community following U.S. Supreme Court legalized gay marriage.

GUI's are a lie, they're just front-ends to the shell.
Through the shell, I gain sudo.
Through sudo, I gain power.
Through power, I gain root.
Through root, my chains are broken.
uid=0 shall free me.

So I have spent part of my weekend migrating from an old and worn out MacBook to a refurbished Lenovo T410 running Kubuntu. Yes, I have gone back to Linux. I'm done with Apple for several reasons <rantage excised>. This machine has double the RAM, 2.5 times the HD space, more USB ports, and it's running Linux.

Ten dollar cash only entry fee to Pride. Didn't have it and wouldn't have paid if I did. Way to be inclusive, San Antonio. Pride is only for the well off.

Whoa. Ours has always been "suggested donation" and much of it goes to charity.

Not accommodating of food allergies. Half the buffet is unlabeled. No salsa, No hot sauce at the table. Not worth the price.

It takes 6 minutes to walk from the store to where I live. It took 40 minutes for my food to arrive. It was cold. The spinach bread was burned. Never again.

For the type of urban food place this is, Crown Chicken is excellent. Beside fried chicken, which they move a lot of, they do fish sandwiches and falafel wraps and a broad array of sides and desserts. Most of it is assembled from prepackaged components, but they've chosen their suppliers well. The wraps and sandwiches are the size of monster burritos and have to be eaten the same way, peeling down the foil and paper as you go. It's not fancy, but the food is good and the portions are massive.

This is a small Chinese restaurant in a strip mall. It is as you would expect it to be, no better, no worse. The staff are friendly, and understanding of special diets (I can't have beef or pork). The prices are reasonable and the portion size is reasonable. I would not go out of my way to eat here, but I would not avoid it either. It's convenient to where I live, which makes it a decent option.
