    Let’s face it, the holidays can be great, but they can also be stressful. For many LGBTQ people, family time is not always the most relaxing. Sometimes you need to just get away and with an election year on the horizon quiet places will be at a premium. Sure, you could always sit in your empty car in the Target parking lot, or you can choose one of these peaceful Htown places to collect your thoughts and calm your nerves before you head back to the fam.

  • Rich's Reboots as ReBar Credit: ReBar via Facebook
    October 8, 2019
    Houston’s LGBTQ nightlife is always evolving. Montrose continues to be the hub for LGBTQ culture but bar and club owners know that if you want to stay on top of the game you have to provide a fresh look, fresh entertainment and a fresh coat of paint. Once upon a time Rich’s was the premiere gay dance club. It was located in Midtown, before Midtown underwent its own evolution from warehouses to mixed use apartments. Then in the early 2000’s Rich’s went dormant while...

    Everyone loves hanging out with their best friend. Whether catching a few rays at the park or a few beers at the bar, it’s always good to be up on places that can accommodate comradery. And if your best friend happens to be covered in fur and walk on all fours then you want to make sure you’re in a welcoming atmosphere especially if you’re visiting Houston from elsewhere.

    October is just around the corner and with it comes cooler temps and the opportunity to wear layers...maybe.

    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...
  • 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...
