  • Veggie Tales: The Best Vegetarian Spots in the City
    September 10, 2019
    Texas and meat are pretty much synonymous. You can’t pass a block in Houston without seeing a barbeque joint, Tex-Mex restaurant or burger joint. Therefore, it’s not surprising that our vegetarian friends don’t feel the love they deserve in our great city. Next time you want to go to dinner, put down the ribs and consider going healthy at one of these veggie havens serving healthy, natural cuisine with some of the freshest ingredients the city has to offer.

  • Brunch of the Month: Verdine
    September 3, 2019
    Vegan food gets a bad rap. Sadly, people sometimes equate it to just eating leaves and berries without giving it a try and seeing that you don’t need meat and dairy to be full of flavor. Take Verdine, our September Brunch of the Month, for instance. The Heights restaurant stemmed from the Ripe Cuisine food truck from chef-owner Stephan Hoban. Her philosophy of a “truthful, green dining” and having a 100% vegan eatery has put Verdine on the map as one of Houston’s...

    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....

    Tea is commonly culturally associated with the British, known for the ritual of afternoon tea or a hot morning cuppa, but Texans also take their tea very seriously. Sweet tea is distinctly southern, a must-have for social gatherings, and it’s even more essential in the sweltering months of summer. A Texan tradition filled with nostalgia is making sun tea, a method using the heat of the sun to draw out the flavors in the tea leaves. All you need is some black tea, sugar, water, and a glass

  • Brunch is a DRAG Credit: @BarBoheme
    April 29, 2019
    There’s something slightly magical about nighttime, like a vaseline-covered movie lens from the 1920s that acts as a proto-Instagram filter and beautifies everything in sight. The sparkle and spectacle of drag shines bright at night, but if you haven’t seen drag during the day, you’re in for a treat. Bounding between the booths and picnic tables at Boheme, two queens perform a duet that leads to a standing ovation along the entire back patio. With the sun beating down on...
