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.

    In 2019, a WalletHub.com survey named Houston the most diverse city in the country, ahead of both New York City and Los Angeles. This didn’t come as a shock to Houstonians themselves, because to us, Houston has never been defined by its politicians or industries — Houston has and always will be defined by its people. We are a city with no majority, a city that speaks 140 languages, a city of change and innovation. Much of that change and innovation is due to immigrants like Dr....

    June 3, 2019
    Located in the très chic One Park Place tower, is a quaint French bistro with all the food and fare of Paris, but none of the arrogance. Brasserie du Parc – from the owners of Uptown Park’s Etoile Cuisine et Bar – is on the Northern side of Discovery Green and has an attached creperie for guests on the go.
