Kids play while parents rest & have a drink.

My husband & I are flying to San Antonio on Sat - Wed. Have girl 9 yrs, boy 3 yrs, & 7 month-old . Would like to know if there is a place where the kids can do some kid-stuff & the parents to do some adult-stuff at the same time. Is there such a place in San Antonio? If there is, it would probably be very popular for parents who like to have a drink or two but want to continue to participate with there kids. Restuarant, park ..... ?

HMmmm.....how about dave & busters? (intersection of I-10 and 410) there's plenty of video games to keep the kids busy....and you and hubby can have beers/cocktails while you sit or play games with them.....but these video games might be a little too much for a 3 yr old.....perhaps chuck e. cheese would be better?

Ponderosa Bowling Alley on Goliad Rd. They have rails that come up when the kids name come up to bowl.. They have a game room and a child care area. They have a bar to get drinks while you bowl or use the game room. They have a telescore, in other words a computer to keep your score with cartoon pictures appearing on the screen after you bowl, the kids usually enjoy watching what will come up after they bowl. Peter Piper Pizza has a kid area while you sit back and watch.

Thank you for your replies. This information could save the day especially if we have rain while we are there.

No place for parents to drink, but a great place to keep the kids busy on rainy day is the Children's Museum - within walking distance from most downtown hotels. http://www.sakids.org/

I believe the Buckhorn Museum serves beer. Its across the street from the Children's Museum. Lots and lots of stuffed animals (the real kind). www.buckhornmuseum.com

Check out Our Kids Magazine It's a free publication that you can pick up a lots of places or at www.ourkidssanantonio.com
