Riverwalk Restaurants get ready for FIESTA!

Your San Antonio RiverWalk Restaurant Knows how to Fiesta!

It has been a long time since we’ve had a river parade!  The Texas Cavaliers are about to change that!

June 21st is the long awaited Fiesta River Parade.  …& we need it!

Interested?  Well we have two ways to enjoy…

 

Dinner & Parade Seat

Dinner in the dining room and a parade seat riverside.

Parade seating along the parade route after dinner.

$140 adults • $80 kids (kids=12 years and under)

Price includes a $50 fee for parade seat, food, tax and gratuity.

This package requires purchase in advance.  To secure your pre-parade dinner with parade seat go to https://www.eventbrite.com/o/biga-on-the-banks-15262307498  

What’s included?  Just about everything!  Our chefs have put together a 3 course menu for parade goers.  The first two courses you will enjoy in our main dining room before the parade.  Close to the start of parade you will take a box of dessert to enjoy at your reserved riverside parade seat.  Coffee, tea, gratuity and tax are also included in the $140 price tag. Any additional drinks or additional items will be billed, based on consumption, before the parade starts.  (Sorry, we cannot guarantee your table will have a view, but your parade seat will!)

Kids 12 and under will choose from the Biga kids menu as well as a box of treats to enjoy riverside.

Timing is important for this package.  The parade starts at 7pm so seating for the pre-parade dinner will be limited to 5pm, 5:15PM and 5:30pm.  All reservations with parade packages purchased will be expected to vacate their dining room table and occupy their parade seats no later than 7pm.

Here’s the menu…

Parade start time expected about 7:00pm.

If you are the kind of person that gets thirsty during parades you may want to bring some cash.  We will have a cash bar available for Biga guests from 6:45-8:00pm.

Go to Pre Parade Dinner w/ Parade Seat to secure your spot!

After the parade starts we have another option…

After 7pm 3 Course Dinner During the Parade

(DOES NOT INCLUDE RIVERSIDE PARADE SEAT)

Biga is normally closed on Mondays but since the river parade is going on we decided to open our dining room for a 3-course fixed price dinner for guests looking for dinner and a little refuge from the parade hub-bub and for those that like the parade but don’t need to see every minute of it.

Tables in the dining room may not have a view of the parade but everyone will have access to our balcony at any time. 

How it works…Seating starts at 7pm.  Once you arrive at the restaurant you will be seated at your table in the main dining room.  Most people use their table as a, kind of, home base.  You will order your drinks, and food at the table and your dinner will be served at the table but at any time you and your guests may want to take your drinks onto our balcony and watch the parade.  Your server will help you time things as you wish.

THIS PACKAGE DOES NOT INCLUDE SEATING ON THE PARADE ROUTE AND WE CANNOT GUARANTEE A TABLE WITH A VIEW.
