Tired of the same ol' watering holes and Netflix binges? This weekend, San Antonio is dialing up the charm and groove to get those feet moving. For starters, Hermann Sons Rathskeller Bar decks out Thursday night with its Mopin' Mic gig, reeling in none other than Buttercup guitarist Joe Reyes for a session of open mic melodics—one could say, a real treat for the ears.

But why settle for a single musical jaunt when Jazz, TX waits to jazz up your Thursday at 7:30 p.m. with the Larry Fuller Trio straight from the Big Apple? It's sure to be a top-notch night—no Carnegie Hall ticket needed. As reported by the San Antonio Report, these cats promise to serve up "dusky underground club" vibes at the Pearl that you won't wanna miss.

Saturday's agenda screams salsa with a side of bachata, right at the Tobin Center for the Performing Arts. Stretch out at 9 a.m. on the Will Naylor Smith River Walk Plaza and let the Latin rhythms lead. The only prep needed? A pair of kicks for comfort and threads for movement. It's time to shake it like you mean it.

Following the dance-off, saunter on down to Curry Boys BBQ on the St. Mary's Strip. They're marking Asian American Pacific Islander Heritage Month with a bang—or should we say, a CAAPIBARA Party from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. Go for the barbeque, stay for the sweet treats by Ooyoo Pan and Dewdrop Bakeshop, as the San Antonio Report suggests.

And if you've got something cookin' for a future weekend, holler at the Report. Who knows? Your gig just might be the next hot ticket they're gabbing about. This city's always ready to "Go Do That!"
