Koi Kawa: Make mine Japanese!

It’s 7 o’clock on a Friday, and the sushi bar at Koi Kawa is buzzing with activity, while the dining room is still relatively empty — except for dutiful Dining Companion, of course; she’s always early, and I’ve given up trying to break her of the habit.

More than Fun & Games: Owning a kid-friendly business

Kids love to play, and there are plenty of businesses around the San Antonio area that provide them with the opportunity to do just that in a safe and structured environment. But while it may look like fun and games, there is much more to owning and operating a child-friendly business than meets the eye. Children are fickle, and what is “in” today may be “out” tomorrow. And in a struggling economy, business owners must be able to demonstrate a value to the parents that justifies an activity that could be viewed as frivolous. The following women are tuned...
