I consider LondonHIM my personal Renaissance man. At home in an Antique store (he worked in them during college years), a museum (former assistant curator) or on a quest for vintage Volkswagens or Vespas (real junking) to fix. Aside: He can easily understand a decor obsession as a guy with a few of his own.
So for our holiday dinner, LondonHIM's brother and girlfriend trekked down to the Liberty Bar in his 1961 Volkswagen Westfalia and we took the TV repair bus. Needless to say the buses garnered a lot of attention. I had no idea it would be such fun to ride in the rusty old box on wheels!

The Liberty Bar has been described as an engineering marvel. While structurally sound the restaurant leans drastically and has crooked floors. It also serves some of the best food in San Antonio. Their motto is "Liberty Bar: Serious Food." Check out the menu. Some great dining is done here. It's a favorite for us.

LondonHIM and I. It's too cold to be outside! (And camera phone's stink.)
