This year’s pour-off features bartenders from 10 of San Antonio’s top restaurants in a fierce battle to crown the official 2010 RiverTini—an original cocktail that embodies the festive spirit and cultural mélange along the San Antonio River. Your Groupon gets you in the door, where delectable snacks provided by Hotel Contessa abound and guests peruse the libational offerings to the sounds of live music and shaking cocktails. Mixomaniacs from Rosario’s, Pavil Restaurant and Bar, Restaurant Insignia, and more will shake, toss, twirl, and eventually pour fresh cocktails for your sampling or swigging pleasure, on a mission to dethrone last year’s winner, Aldaco’s Stone Oak, and have their unnamed cocktail be christened the 2010 RiverTini. After the tasting has commenced and the limbs and brains of guests are properly be-jelloed, attendees vote on favorite cocktails for the people’s choice prize. Meanwhile, a separate panel of prominent local personalities declares the official winner, and 100 baby pegacorns are released back into the wild to celebrate.

Yoga in Motion helps students of all skill levels and body types to forge limber joints with heat-generating yoga classes. The studio’s Vinyasa-style yoga classes teach attendees to synchronize breath with movement during powerfully flowing pose transitions. Intro to Gentle Yoga Flow sessions begin with floor-based stretches, after which the studio's instructors lead attendees through a slow-paced series of foundational poses while emphasizing proper alignment and seamlessly flowing movement. Intermediate Flow classes challenge students with deeper stretches and a more vigorous sequence of asanas that, much like the legal definition of a vegetable, changes daily. Core Focus sessions strengthen the abdominal muscles and rebar frame that support the body's posture. Students can spread their yoga mats atop the practice space's timbered expanse of wood flooring and use the mirror-lined walls to practice their staring-contest skills.

On Paintball Knights' nine pristine grassy play fields, combatants take cover behind inflatable obstacles and large tin drums while waging good-natured warfare against the opposing team. A referee for every 10 participants keeps things civil and fun by promising to foil cheaters and inaccurate Braveheart reenactments. Between matches, players can hatch master plans in the 50-table gravel staging area or stock up on supplies at the pro shop. The staff supplies biodegradable, easy-break paintballs that leave minimal stains and bruises, as well as complimentary lens cleaner and paper towels to scrub away colorful specks from skin, clothing, and monocles.
