Crawl for the Culture

This St. Patrick's day weekend I decided to hop in a time machine and go back to being twenty-one. You know the period of your life where calories do not count, bedtimes do not exist and hangovers are what older folks complain about. Who did I think I was?! At the very least I have fun stories to share with you. Since Friday marked St. Patrick's day and I decided I was twenty-one again, that meant I had to hit the streets!  After a crazy fun night in midtown, I woke up to do it all over again with the Crawl for [...]

March Madness at Russo’s Pizzeria!

It is officially MARCH MADNESS!!!  I have a fun deal from Russo's Pizzeria to share with you, but first lets talk sports! Did you make a bracket? Did your team make it to the big dance??  Can I just say, I LOVE March Madness.  During my college and law school years my school (Mizzou) was often a contender for the big tournament.  For me, there is not a college championship series more fun that basketball!  I was generally an avid watcher until a couple of  years ago when my school lost in the first round to a lower seed.  IT [...]

A few Houston Happy Hours

I have been hitting up weekly happy hours lately as if I do not have a job to go to at 8am!  I would say "don't be like me," but I am providing you with a list of places so you can be JUST like me *evil grin.*  Creating a whole blog post for a happy hour is not too fun, so I waited till I accumulated several that I liked and created a new list.  Unlike my previous list, this one is not comprised of my "favorites" although many of the potential to become just that!   This list, is [...]

Sterling House

Hi it's me again, filling up your mailboxes with tons of posts that I have been waiting to share!  This time, I am sharing my experience at Sterling House a beautiful bar in Houston's midtown.  A few weeks ago Sterling House hosted the Houston Food Blogger Collective for a tasting of their best dishes and cocktails. Location/Set Up Isn't she pretty? Sterling House is in midtown, not to far from Montrose.  This beautiful bar is housed in a historic home built in the early 1900s.  I am a sucker for old historic homes in general and I love [...]

Happy Hour at 51fifteen

Have you seen the beautiful new Saks Fifth Avenue at the Houston Galleria?  Ever since it opened I have been dying to visit!  Well I got a chance a few weeks ago when Saks invited my Houston Food Blogger Collective group out for an event.  Keep reading for my experience! Setup: The Galleria can be intimidating to maneuver.  Thankfully, Saks is one of the few stores that you can enter from a parking garage without going into the main mall.  From there you take an elevator right up to the second floor into the restaurant.   You can also enjoy [...]

Aloft Downtown Houston

On a rare occasion, this food blogger life allows me access to some pretty cool things before the general public gets a chance to view it.  In these instances I of course have to share all of the details with my BGWB friends!   If you have paid attention, Houston's downtown is brimming with new hotels and developments ahead of the Superbowl.  The Aloft Downtown is part of that new boom.  Unlike many of the other spots though, this one features a rooftop bar and pool which will be open to the public!  This is not your typical foodie spot, [...]

Bowl and Barrel

I am right in the midst of a marathon of food blogger events!  It's all fun and games until you have 15 blog posts to share.  Bear with me while I power through the backlog.   So, one of my more unique events was a trip to Bowl and Barrel in City Centre.  This high end bowling alley caters to the foodie who wants to partake in some while eating good food.  I had the pleasure of visiting Bowl and Barrel with my foodie friends from Houston Food Blogger Collective! Location I would not be real if I did not [...]

Springbok Houston

Time and time again I find myself trying a cuisine or a restaurant that I would not have tried prior to becoming a food blogger. Springbok on Main Street is the perfect example of this!  A few years back I was invited to happy hour at Springbok.   After a bit of googling, I discovered that Springbok is a restaurant/bar specializing in South African cuisine.  Ignorant old me wanted no parts of that and declined the invitation.  Fast forward to now and I am currently the events chair for the Houston Food Blogger Collective.  Our group was invited to a [...]

Sundown at the Grove

Last Wednesday, I visited Sundown at the Grove presented by Southwest airlines.  The event is weekly and showcases craft breweries paired with cuisine created by the Grove's chef!  I feel a bit cheated since this event has been around for five years and this is only the first year that I heard of it!  When the organizers invited me to attend, I jumped at the chance to experience Sundown and of course share my experience with you all! How it Works The event is hosted on the Grove's upstairs patio which is hands down one of the best rooftop patios [...]

Oysters & Cocktails the Tasting Room

When I pulled up to the Tasting Room in Uptown Park for their Oysters and Cocktails event I had an instant flashback to twenty-one year old Erika home for the summer, looking for some adult wine shenanigans to get into!  My high school friends and I decided that the Tasting Room fit the bill and made the trek from Cypress to their uptown location, only to arrive and be overwhelmed with the sophisticated menu and wine options!  We left and went somewhere more age appropriate, like Chili's.   Thankfully, in the near decade since then I and my palette have matured [...]
