San Antonio’s telephone area code changes from 512 to 210.
The ordinance banning smoking in the Alamodome takes effect today. Two entrances on both the east and west sides of the dome have been designated smoking exits. Cigarette urns will be set up in the plaza outside those exits. Fans who care to step outside for a quick puff or two will receive fuschia smoking passes, which they must show – along with a ticket stub – to get back inside the building.
Canadian-born Shania Twain performs a sold-out show at the Alamodome in support of her “Come On Over” album. Leahy, a nine-piece, fiddle-playing family band is the opening act.
