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 [...]

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 [...]

Taste of the NFL

Here again still playing catch up!! The Super Bowl was several weeks ago yes, but I would be remiss if I did not do a brief recap for you guys on the Taste of the NFL event.  This event showcases chefs from around the country, each representing an NFL team/city.    Proceeds from the event go to local food banks.  Since Houston hosted the event, most of the proceeds go to the Houston Food Bank, with other NFL cities receiving a smaller share for their local food banks. The Red Carpet Media pass and red carpet ready! Once [...]

The Sweet List

As a kid, I was weird and hated sweets.  I would pass on my own birthday cake and cringe when offered chocolate.  What was wrong with me?!  Sometime between then and now I developed a massive sweet tooth which constantly puts me on the hunt for the best desserts in Houston.   I wrote about this some years back and that list still holds true.  I just got a tad greedier since that list and discovered several new spots, thus creating the Sweet List! Check below for my additions :) Amorino Who doesn't love good ice cream?  Well, when it comes in [...]

Black Girls Who Brunch: Favorite Houston Brunches

I wrote my first "favorite Houston brunches" way back in May 2015 as one of my first posts on this website.  So much has changed since then and as you can imagine, I have visited a lot more Houston brunch spots.  So now I am back with an update to the list, just in time for the influx of Super Bowl visitors :). Since I am loyal many of the spots are the same since the last list, but I had to add some new favorites.  Just like last time, I am not claiming these are the BEST in Houston.  These [...]

Black Girls Who Brunch Houston Foodie Guide

When friends or family come to visit me in Houston, I take showing them a good time very seriously!  Houston is one of those cities that does not have a reputation like a Vegas, New York or Miami, so it is up to me to show them why I love this city so much. Since I became a food blogger, they all show up expecting me to take them on a culinary tour that is diverse as Houston.  That is where the fun comes in!  With each guest, I try to showcase the growing foodie scene in Houston by highlighting [...]

To Split the Check or Not?

So I am an avid twitter user, logging in numerous times a day.  One of the draws for me is the constant conversations about current events, politics, reality tv and a host of other things.  Twitter is often times a focus group of sorts if you want to get a variety of opinions.  I have seen people debate whether a $200 date is acceptable or the best way to approach a woman you are interested in.  Trust me, these debates are reoccurring and hilarious.  A recent debate got me thinking and I decided that this topic deserves a blog post. [...]

Where to Dine in Houston for New Years Eve!

Guys, can you believe it?! 2016 has almost come to a close! There were a few lows, but the highs were amazing!  For starters I turned 30, traveled like it was going out of style and of course had a great time with Black Girls Who Brunch!  The end of this year deserves some celebration and I of course always recommend celebrating with food.  Last year I combed the internet looking for a great restaurant to ring in the New Year and let me tell you it was not easy.   Thankfully now that Black Girls Who Brunch has grown, [...]

Check Me Out on Stay.Com!

The good folks over at Stay.Com asked me to create a list of my favorite Houston Brunches for tourists looking for local haunts in my hometown.  The list, entitled "Out for Brunch in Houston," is similar to my own favorite Houston Brunch list that I made earlier this year with a few new additions!  I made sure to include places that were created right here in Houston like Max's Wine Dive.  Max's is now all over the country, but the original is right here on Washington.  Also, I had to add our quintessential Houston breakfast spot, the Breakfast Klub.  Standing [...]
