SAN ANTONIO – Today at 1 p.m., a back-to-school drive with a famous singer, a local Food Network star shares back-to-school meals, some of the best fried chicken in the nation and it’s Thirsty Thursday!

Singer Austin Mahone is coming to see us at Market Square ahead of his back-to-school drive in his hometown of San Antonio with IconTalks. You may remember his rise to fame from YouTube videos.

It’s some of the “best fried chicken” in the country, according to Eater. We’re chowing down with the Jerk Shack.

How about a cocktail to go with that chicken? It’s Thirsty Thursday and we’re shaking things up with Coastal Bend Distilling Co.

Our friend, Erin Chase with 5 Dollar Dinners, is on the Food Network! She shares some budget-friendly back-to-school meal ideas with us.

Plus, San Antonio in a Box has back-to-school gifts and college care packages. We’re going to “unbox” the surprises today.
