  • 45th Annual Texas Renaissance Festival Credit: Texas Renaissance Festival
    October 16, 2019
    Out of all 268,597 sprawling square miles of Texas, the biggest city closest to our state’s Renaissance Festival is Houston (sorry to our beloved frenemies, Austin and Dallas). Not to brag, but the Texas Renaissance Festival is Texas-sized — it’s the largest Renaissance Festival in the entire country. The Renaissance Festival is basically an excuse to nerd out as hard as possible and celebrate all things fantastical. Were dragons and fairies real parts of history? No. Have...

  • Four Wheeling
    September 24, 2019
    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...

  • 10 Underrated Houston Views
    September 3, 2019
    Everything is bigger in Texas — our great state is larger than France, Spain, Germany, and Japan. You can drive for 12 hours straight and still be within our borders. Along our western side are sprawling, brick-red mountains in a desert that was once under the prehistoric ocean. Deep in our heart is the Hill Country with its eponymous hills teeming with rocky cliffs, lush forests, and Czech sausage. The massive metropolis of Houston is decidedly flat, hovering barely 50 feet above sea...
  • Time Out
    August 29, 2019
    Part of Houston’s charm is its dancing dichotomy between the slow pace of a southern town and the hustle and bustle of a big city. This duality is reflected practically everywhere — five minutes on our freeways and you’ll see the way we effortlessly drive fast while somehow still in traffic. Our inner city is freckled with green spaces between the concrete. We make tea the slow way (in the sun) and then we drink it fast. Speaking in terms of Selena songs, the city’s...
  • 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...

    July 23, 2019
    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.
