There’s no better time to focus on the things that make you love where you live than the new year.

That’s why we’re sharing some hot takes for what’s "out" and "in.”

👋 Out (leave it in 2022)

Picky eating | Depriving yourself of the 210’s food scene has to be our first “out” of 2023, no question. Try this: Ladino, Hot Joy, The Jerk Shack.
Fast fashion | This year, we’re shopping local, pre-loved, and sustainable clothing. Try this: Grey Moon Vintage, Hello Tallulah, Worn Out.
Apple snails | The bane of our existence. This highly destructive invasive species to the San Antonio River needs to go. Try this: Read about them, volunteer, take the pledge.
“Wannabe Austin” | Nope. We’re our own, individual city. Try this: Cost of living, the King William Neighborhood, 100+ local events.
Thinking San Antonio is boring | With a total of 242 newsletters, we hope we’ve convinced you that there’s never a dull moment is our beautiful city. Try this: Where to eat, where to shop, what’s coming in 2023.

👏 In (we love to see it)

Actually good coffee | We’re not settling for anything but the best. Try this: Estate Coffee Co., Vice Coffee, and more.
Los Spurs | With the 50th anniversary underway, there’s no better time to be a Spurs fan. Try this: Get tickets, 50th Anniversary game, rep the merch.
Being a nice human | What makes the 210 so great is how willing we are to lend a hand. Try this: Volunteer, give blood, learn about community members.
Saving money | It’s easy to get wrapped up in a spending spree. Save a little money here and there. Try this: cost-friendly parking tips, $10 vs. $100 budget, free museum days.
Doing what makes you happy | With all that said, this year, we’re ditching what anyone else says to do what brings us joy. Try this: Tell us what your plan is for 2023.
