    1929 was a significant year in The United States. Wall Street crashes, The Museum of Modern Art (MoMA) is created in New York City, and the Academy Awards debuts for the first time. That same year, Anne Frank, Barbara Walters, and Martin Luther King Jr. were born. These three well-known figures all seem to come from entirely different eras, but time is a tricky thing. The fact that Barbara Walters is still kickin’ highlights the fact that we are not terribly far from the civil rights era...

    The holidays are hectic. Social hangovers are real, family hangovers are real, regular hangovers are extremely real, and financial hangovers are totally a thing. While recuperating from the holiday rush, everyone should spend at least one full day in pajamas, abandon all diet plans, and find something to do that is free or at least super cheap. Of course, a huge, bubbling city like Houston is full of hidden, free gems to experience while you and your wallet recover. View this post on

Houston’s Midtown neighborhood was home to “Little Saigon,” bustling with businesses like tailors, markets, and restaurants. Though current-day Midtown is in a bit of a shift, remnants of that cultural evolution can be found on the street signs in the area,

    One of Houston’s many nicknames is “The Energy Capital of the World” because we have over 5,000 energy-related businesses in operation across our greater metro area. While Houston is known as a titan of the oil industry, our renowned diversity heralds constant creativity and innovation. We have so many new enterprises in a myriad of industries, and it’s basically impossible to leave empty-handed when celebrating Small Business Saturday in Houston. Whether...

  • Holiday Shows and Events Around Houston
    November 7, 2019
    One of the most jubilant times in Houston is when the city gets hit with its first fall chill after a long summer. Usually in late autumn, everyone breaks out their winter coats and scarves, getting into the spirit of the season with changing leaves, sparkling lights, and pumpkin spice everything. Our winters are comparatively mild to other parts of the country, so our holiday celebrations are exuberant, energetic, and a perfect opportunity to observe happy Houstonians in their colorful holiday

    Many queer adults today didn't get to grow up with the sweet, nostalgic experiences of young love the way straight folks do. Bringing a date to prom, slow dancing at the sock hop, wearing someone's letter jacket for all to see — many idyllic rites of romantic passage are a bit delayed for us. Put on your rainbow-tinted glasses, though, and you might find that a missed experience is just an opportunity for doing things on your own terms, on your own time. One absolute must on the...

    Pride is an everyday sense of self, an empowered embrace of who you are at your core. Those who practice pride become beacons for all those still stumbling around in the dark. We could all learn a lesson in pride from Harper Watters. The 26-year-old, black, gay ballet dancer is a soloist with the Houston Ballet (the fourth-largest professional ballet company in the country) who is one of the brightest beacons of pride in the sky. “My 3-year-old son told me recently that boys don't do...
