    Houston is a big city with over 6 million people in the greater area. In most cities of similar size, the fancy foodie scene is ruled by Michelin Stars and tasting menus. Houston, per usual, does things a little differently. It’s not that we don’t have some of the most diverse and tasty food in the whole world, we do. But the top restaurants in Houston are less caviar and more filet mignon. If you’re coming to Houston then you need to save room for steak. Pappas Bros....
  • Improving With Age: Four Historic Houston Icons
    August 19, 2019
    When Houston was established in 1837 there were about a dozen residents. Over 180 years later that number has grown to 2.3 million and clocks in as the fourth largest city in the country. And although it isn’t the official capital of Texas (even though it was for two years 1837-1839) it is by far the cultural capital of the south. Houston’s stats may be great but nothing beats exploring the history first hand. These days, even historic buildings have taken on new purposes. Where an...

    Bob Morrissey doesn’t fit the mold, regardless of what that mold is for. “I’m a bad gay,” he says. “I don’t get involved in anything gay other than standup and talking about my gay sex life on stage in front of people.” He prefers the slower pace of a coffee shop, scribbling in his ever-present notebook, his flat affect dropping a joke that doesn’t hit you immediately. Unlike the comedians who ham it up and jump around on stage and in...

    More and more, Houston is drawing international attention for its booming food scene. Just this past June, global lifestyle magazine, The Robb Report, named Houston’s own James Beard award-winning chef, Chris Shepherd, the best chef in the world (yes, WORLD). All this buzz adds weight to an idea that Houston’s residents have always known — Houston has some of the best food in the world. From August 1st-September 2nd, over 200 beloved Houston eateries participate in Houston...

Every few blocks, you can find award-winning restaurants and cocktail bars, but Houston is also a gritty underdog of a city that does just fine without all the frills. Sometimes you just need some good
  • Vocal Local: Khaliah Guillory

    Don’t sleep on Khaliah Guillory, even though that is exactly the purpose of her new business venture. The self-proclaimed nap enthusiast is making it snazzy to snooze in the middle of the workday with the opening of Nap Bar, a full-service “bar” – think spa and no alcohol – where patrons can rent pods to rejuvenate with a quick catnap.

  • Strollin' On A Bayou - Best Houston Walks
    July 22, 2019
    There’s a joke that Houston itself is, “just an hour away from Houston.” Visitors always take note of the way Houstonians (and Texans, in general) measure distance through time and not miles because our land is so massive. Oh, Galveston Beach? That’s like, 45 minutes away. Lake Houston? Only a 30 minute drive! Houston’s 669 square miles is vast, but the Greater Houston area is a whopping 1,660 miles. Much of that mileage belongs to Houston’s natural...

The first air-conditioned building in Houston was the cafeteria at The Rice Hotel (now The Rice Lofts) downtown in 1922. Texans of yesteryear would build big, open porches and transoms above every door in the home that kept breezes moving through the house. There were
  • Summer Shows for Theatre Queens
    July 9, 2019
    Houston summers evoke thoughts of pool parties, raspas from refresquerias (snow cones for gringos), and blasting the AC like Lionel Richie - All Night Long. There are, however, more options than just drinking the day away while we wait for cooler temps. The summer theatre scene is always poppin’ in H-town and when the sun goes down the curtain goes up in the city. Miller Outdoor Theatre in Hermann Park offers the largest “always free” programming in the country. Over the...
