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 Paris Series: Random Thoughts and Tips

I know it's been over a month since I returned from Paris, but I have more to say!! Spend about a week in foreign countries and you will come home with SO many thoughts.  In this case, all of my thoughts did not fit in my three previous posts so I had to make a whole new posts with my random musings from this trip.  I threw in a few travel tips too :).  Enjoy! Rude? One common thing I heard about Parisians is that they are RUDE.  I did not find that to be true!  While they were not [...]

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, [...]

Gateway Memorial City

A year into blogging and I am probably at a foodie related event at least once a week.  Still, my favorite events are those with my Houston Food Blogger Collective!  It is fun not to feel like a crazy person whipping out your iPhone every time a new dish appears from kitchen.  When I am among friends, we ALL are eager to get the best shot!  Our most recent HFBC event was no different.  This time we were in for a treat, our hosts Gateway Memorial City invited us to try three restaurants in the Memorial Gateway Complex.  The new State [...]

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 [...]

Miyako Happy Hour

It feels like I haven't posted a new restaurant on my blog in forever! The problem is, I have been sticking to the places that I know and love, so few new spots.  Then I have gone the way of other food bloggers and microblog more of my adventures on Instagram and Snapchat (shameless plug, follow me there if you do not already!) Anywho one Friday, I was in search of a new Happy Hour to visit with my Foodie group.  I asked my Houston Food Blogger Collective crew and they all gave me great suggestions, many of which I [...]

Black Girls Who Brunch Turns ONE!

Guess what! We are ONE year old today! Yay!!! Here's a little BGWB history for ya! I picked the name and set up the Wordpress account in 2014, but sat on it for almost a year, too scared to write and worried about how my blog would be received.  I continued to visit restaurants and stockpile pictures for "one day" when I would actually blog about these places. One weekend in May 2015, I decided it was time to stop being scared and just DO IT! I spent the next few weeks writing various blog posts and finally found my style.   [...]

Four Seasons Spa Houston

The Four Seasons is one of Houston's premiere hotels located near all the downtown happenings of the Toyota Center, House of Blues and Green Street.  As of late, there is a lot of construction in this area. From new hotels like the Marriott set to have a Texas shaped lazy river, to street upgrades and remodels like the one at the Four Seasons.  I was invited out along with my Houston Food Blogger Collective friends to visit the new upgraded spa and to check out the spa menu! While waiting at the lobby bar, the bartender told me that the [...]
