San Antonio?s bustling urban environs and picturesque natural surroundings both serve as the setting for Adventure Club San Antonio?s organized, jovial group outings for singles and married couples alike. Resident staffers heed suggestions from more than 300 members and 200 fortune cookies to devise a calendar of events that brims with an average of 60 activities every month, most of which are free of charge. After perusing the bevy of activities, participants congregate amid the verdant San Antonio?area wilderness for outdoor recreation such as hiking and canoeing, or within the lively city limits for dinners, sports matches, members-only shindigs, and frequent volunteer sessions for local charities.

Aside from the chance to mingle with new friends and explore the region, members receive discounts at dozens of local businesses, and can swiftly find a companion for unofficial events and shadow-puppet castings via a handy activity partners? forum. Additionally, Adventure Club can connect members to a network of similar groups in Austin and Houston.

Delivering clean, ice-cold water at the touch of a button, the Pure Water 1R system received the WQA Gold Seal for meeting or exceeding industry standards for contaminant reduction, structural integrity, and material safety. Pure Water Technology's water-purification professionals deliver and connect the Pure Water system to your home water source using quarter-inch, flexible, high-grade tubing, before lighting some candles and letting them get to know one another in private. Once acclimated to its new home, the system uses a multistage process to remove common drinking-water contaminants, starting with a 10-micron prefilter that halts dirt and rust, and a carbon block that eliminates toxic chemicals. The water then passes through an ultrafine reverse-osmosis membrane, which forcibly strips away clingy contaminants before an activated oxygen injection blasts away bacteria, keeping water as fresh and tasteful as a pantsuit made entirely of organic kohlrabi.
