‘Sent from Kissing Alley’ Valentine deliveries slated

Love is the air in San Marcos, and residents and visitors can now send their love from one of the most romantic spots in the United States.  

Last Valentine’s Day, the city’s downtown was named as one of the most romantic downtowns in America by Main Street America. This year the city’s Main Street office is celebrating by helping people spread the love from one of the most romantic destinations in our love-filled downtown, Kissing Alley.

Top scholars were ‘newcomers’ 4 years ago

Both Jesus Hernandez and Luis Trejo moved to the United States during their 9th grade school year and entered San Marcos High School through the Newcomer program. Now less than four years later, to say they have adjusted would be an understatement, for both young men have earned places in the top 10 percent of the 2017 graduating class of San Marcos High School.

Film shot in San Marcos debuts this week at The Spot

Jordan Buckley - Special to the Record

A new yet already classic San Marcos-shot feature film will screen for a week beginning Monday, thanks to the wise experimentation of theater owner Mitchell Roberts in bringing “Tiramisu for Two” to EVO’s latest concept, The Spot.

The Springtown Center parking lot where the sleek theatre resides actually hosted a scene from the international film, which follows Giorgio, a wayward protagonist in Rome who resolves to pursue his long lost love: Hope, a San Marcos gal he met decades ago.
