- This is a San Antonio king. My balls. San Antonio's real fun already. Growing up as a kid all I wanted to do was stay up all night. I wanted to play video games. I wanted to eat. I wanted to drink. Now, I'm a full grown adult. I have a credit card, an ID and I'm gonna stay up all night. Restricted area, contestants only. This is crazy, man. How long have you been doin' this? - [Bull Rider] I've been doin' it for about five years now. - [Host] How'd you get into it? - Actually, my reason was because I watched that movie 8 Seconds, and Lane Frost just inspired me. - Dude, I was actually tryin' to impress some girls at a rodeo and now I do it 'cause I love it. - What are you all doin' back here anyways? - [Host] What do you mean? - I'm just gonna pretend like I know what I'm doin'. Rodeo was dope, the night is young, it's time to get to town and see what else San Antonio has to offer. I love outdoor drinking and eating so this place looks up to snuff. This is dope. All my favorite Mexican inspired dishes are vegan on this menu. It's time to eat! This is so creative, it reminds me of a Mexican falafel, but it's actually just red beans and rice into a deep fried ball. It was so good. - I didn't make this restaurant for vegan people, I made it for my community. I made it for San Antonio people. For people to come in here and have really good food that happened to be vegan. - These tacos, what's making them fish? - [Restaurant Owner] I make them with oyster mushrooms. - Get out of here. This is crazy good. There you go. - People are now like, oh San Antonio's so cool, but San Antonio's always been really cool it was just more underground. The art scene was underground, the music scene was underground, but it all still existed 10, 20, 30 years ago. - I'm gonna keep drinkin' because philosophy comes the more you booze. Plato said that. - Here's your ID. - Thank you man, appreciate it. There's something weird about this building already. That was an armed gunman. This is an office building. What kind of bar is this? Oh shit. Can I get a Fun Bag? Can I actually get two Fun Bags? Two Fun Bags. Do you want a Fun Bag? - [Woman] Excuse me? - It's like a Capri Sun, like an adult Capri Sun. You can't order one Fun Bag, it needs to be plural, Fun Bags. - Yeah, Fun Bags. - Fun Bags need to be plural. - Sure, that's exactly what you needed. Fun Bags. - That's what I thought. This is how you cheers to Fun Bag. - San Antonio has such roots, like, such family, such community that really runs deep. San Antonio just has a lot of heart. - I'm taking notes. Oh my God. - [Man With Sword] This is the fun way to drink. - That was awesome. There you go. Cheers, boom. Why you squirming like that? This is my eye patch, it's a wine patch, bros. - Welcome. - This really is the basement, huh? - This really is the basement. - You guys are not playin' around. Cheers, thank you guys. - We're gonna drink some Mezcal. - I can do some Mezcal, lets do it. - This stuff is all stuff I brought back from travels to Mexico. - How's Mezcal differ from Tequila? - You can think of Tequila as the shittiest version of Mezcal. It has to be a certain plant from a certain place. - [Man With Dark Beard] Hit me with it. - So this one is infused with toasted corn. And it's like 70 percent alcohol. - That's a good night. That's a good night. - Cheers. - You're amazing, doing a good thing down here, drinkin' in a basement. - [Man Behind Bar] Well have a great time in San Antonio, man. - Thanks you guys. Touribo. Hot Joy, I've heard about them all over the internet. These guys do fusion food in San Antonio, so I'm curious what that even means, or looks like, and I'm hungry. - You know, the outside world is a Texas cowboy, but San Antonio is so relaxed. Everyone is really here for the community and to do things to get people out of the house, stay productive, help each other live a more fulfilling life and really be inspired day to day. - To you exploring and discovering how beautiful San Antonio is, and hopefully that you come back. - [Host] To San Antonio. Can I get the chicken wings? Tiger Salad. Tikka Masala Tacos. Can I get the Shrimp and Lychee Goza? Is that enough? - I think a lot of people are coming in from New York, from L.A., from a lot of places, that don't know San Antonio or understand San Antonio, and so they're getting recognition for bringing things to San Antonio, which is great, but they forget us. The people who've been here. I think our opinion and our voice, and our look and style should be valued, before anybody coming in from outside and saying oh this is what San Antonio is to us, versus what it actually is. - I could watch that all day. You better eat that hot dog, girl. I don't know if I'm gonna make it to that side of the table. - We're slacking. - This is a cool bar, this is the best bar. Can I get a shot of Jameson? Alright, so this is a biker bar. The better part of me thinks I should not go in here, but when am I going to go to a biker bar? I see it, it's on the side of the street, it can't be that bad. Alright, lets get a drink. Can I get Alamo please? Lets go make some friends. - [Woman's Voice] He found a possum. - [Man's Voice] Man, look at that tiger. - Lets eat him. Where's the meat? Here you want him? - No, fuck no! - Here you go buddy. All good. - So who are you guys? - We're Iron Order. - The Iron Order? - We're the largest law-abiding motorcycle club in the world. - Here's to ya'll man. - As a young man on a deployment to Iraq, and I was like, well I want a tattoo, right? I'd been toying with the idea of getting a tattoo on my dick. So, I asked the girls, how much for a tattoo on my shit, right? She goes, you might wanna do something simple and black, 'cause it's gonna hurt really bad. And I was like, fine. - Paint my dick black, please. - [Veteran] People say it looks like a lightning bolt. - What's it supposed to mean? - It's a tribal design. - I believe you, I believe you. - Here's a couple of our bikes, here's our ladies. What's up ya'll? Come on in to our home here. Here's our bar. - You ready to play? - Oh shit! - Yes! - [Veteran] Tequila and Jager. - That's the worst shot I've ever had, in my life. - That's the best shot. - What's up ladies? I don't know what I'm gonna do now, it's not gonna be as cool as that, let me tell you that. I'm very drunk. Unanimously, this is where everyone from San Antonio told me to go, at night, after hours, 'cause it's always open. It's a Mexican restaurant and a bakery. It'll never let you down. This is a dream come true right now. Can I get one of these cookies? What has the most sugar in here? - Everything's got sugar. - Can I get a walnut praline? Can I get a orange? Can I get a fig empanada? What is this with the coconut all over it? Yeah, 100% I need that, please, thank you. One's glazed, one's chocolate, yeah I'm gonna need one and one, please. Tres leches, all three leches, all three of 'em. Yeah, let me get a danish, please, and a pink one. This is the perfect bag for me. Do you have a Mexican hot chocolate? Whatever you guys want, I got it. 100% on me, 100%. I hope they don't order a lot 'cause my mom's card will tap out. That shit does have a limit. I don't know where to start. Really good. Oh my God. I'm basically gettin' laid tonight. This is cheaper than a hooker. Oh shit, I said it. Food coma. Street sweeping, just happening in my face. That Mexican hot chocolate from Mi Tierra, super good. We have the tools to make it better. Cafe Tequila, some spiked Mexican hot chocolate. San Antonio was a shit show. The sun is on it's way, man. It's the end of an era. The end of all nighters, forever. Just kidding. We'll get some rest and do it again. I just gotta find a way out of here.
