An Authentic Taste of Mexico at Twilight in the Park

Dine under the stars and savor the flavors of Mexico with real recipes from the newly-released cookbook “Enchiladas: Aztec to Tex-Mex”


Tuesday, Nov. 17 |


Save the date for the al fresco dining event of the season! Twilight in the Park is back on Tuesday, Nov. 17 in Travis Park from 6 to 9 pm and promises to be an evening of culinary celebration and authentic Mexican cuisine.

Hosted by the City of San Antonio in partnership with the San Antonio Parks Foundation and Centro San Antonio, Twilight in the Park is a seated dinner under the stars that raises funds necessary to further activities and developments of Travis Park.

With a cocktail hour, appetizers and a three-course dinner under the stars, accompanied by live music, Twilight in the Park will highlight the flavors of Mexico prepared by Executive Chef Michael Mata of The St. Anthony Hotel featuring recipes from the newly-released cookbook Enchiladas: Aztec to Tex-Mex. Authored by restaurateur Cappy Lawton and food writer Chris Waters Dunn and published by Trinity University Press, this cookbook provides an authentic look at the evolution of the beloved enchilada and the many mouthwatering recipes that incorporate this storied Mexican dish. The evening will conclude with a special sneak peek of 250,000 holiday lights that will be on display at Travis Park throughout the holiday season, made possible by the Public Improvement District and Centro San Antonio.

“We are delighted to be part of Twilight in the Park in such a special way,” said Lawton and Dunn. “Enchiladas Norteñas, filled with Allen Bros. Prime beef, Enchiladas Langosta, featuring lobster covered in a luxurious poblano cream sauce, and a spectacular ice cream dessert with Oaxacan chocolate and a caramel mole sauce, will make this Twilight in the Park event one to remember.”

Tickets are now available for purchase at $150 per person, which includes a signed copy of the cookbook ($40 value). Event attire is business casual and valet parking will be available at The St. Anthony Hotel for $5. To purchase tickets or to sponsor a table, visit or call 210-207-3914.
