San Antonio After Dark 2017
56 of us started at the Scout Center at 11PM where we loaded into a school bus and a 15-passenger van.
Our first stop was the 911 call center
No pictures allowed inside the actual working space, but this is an image from their website
Guess which holiday is the busiest for the 911 call center?
Next stop, the San Antonio Zoo. We didn’t just get to hear what it is like at the zoo after dark, we got to tour the entire zoo! Some of the animals, especially the lions, are very active at night.
Next stop: Methodist Hospital in the South Texas Medical Center
Here we are at the Methodist Hospital Emergency Room. We got to tour the ER and see where the doctors and other health care providers work, what the patient’s experience, and where they get their CTs and other studies done.
Only one person threw up, so that’s a plus!
After the ER we headed to Rackspace to see what keeps Rackers up all night long. Rackspace acquired the old Windsor Park Mall and converted into the workspace they call the Castle.
As we left Rackspace, Dawn’s rosy fingers began to spread across the city. Hungry and tired we headed for our last stop…Mi Tierra at the Market Place downtown where they had a warm breakfast and piping hot coffee waiting for us.
SA After Dark 2017 was a great success.
Join with us and help us make our next activity even better!
