Houston Restaurant Weeks: Oceanaire Seafood Room

Oceaniare Dining Room This past weekend we celebrated my friend Leeann's birthday at Oceaniare Seafood Room. If you recall, Oceanaire was on my list of places to go for Houston Restaurant Weeks so I was excited about this pick! We had a larger group so we were seated in a semi private area to the side of the main dining room.  The restaurant printed up personalized menus with "Happy Birthday Leeann!" for everyone.  They even put a ribbon on one and gave to my friend as a souvenir.  I thought that was a great touch! Personalized menu for the birthday [...]

Celebratory Brunch!

I met up with a group of high school friends to celebrate a few things.  First, my good friend got engaged in Europe a few weeks ago and this was our first chance to see her in person to congratulate her.  Second my other good friend just completed her degree.  We are so very proud of her and it deserved a good brunch to celebrate.  Then finally, as you can imagine, I surround myself with fellow foodies so we were also celebrating the first Sunday of Houston restaurant weeks :) This year there are not too many brunch options on the [...]

Quick Post: National Chicken Wing Day!

If you recall, in my Happy Hour post I mentioned that I needed to stop by Prospect Park's Wednesday 50 cent wing night.  Twitter informed me that Wednesday was National Chicken Wing Day so, the stars were aligned for a trip to Prospect Park to celebrate! Prospect Park has recently become my "Cheers bar" due to proximity and a great crowd. Prospect brags about having the best wings in town.  I realize that every restaurant says that about their signature dish, but these guys are telling the truth!  I ordered the Parmesan Garlic wings.  The wings are either naked or breaded. [...]

Taco Tuesday!

Living in Houston, Texas means you will be inundated with Tex-Mex restaurants.  It's kind of our niche thing here.  If you have ask any Houston Foodie their favorite Mexican and Tex-Mex restaurant, be prepared for a long list of options.  I am no different!  One day, I will make a list of my favorites, but for today I am just featuring one that I frequent often, Torchy's Tacos!!! Torchy's started in Austin, Texas as a food truck and was so successful they were able to open a brick and mortar store. They eventually expanded to Houston and have grown rapidly here. [...]

Happy Hour & A Movie

Amy My sister and I made a long awaited trip to the movies to see the critically acclaimed documentary, Amy, which focuses on the short life of jazz/soul singer Amy Winehouse.  We decided to go to the downtown theater Sundance. First up we stopped over at Sundance to pick up our tickets.  If you park in the theater garage across the street the theater will validate your parking, so make sure you bring your receipt into the theater with you.  We had a few hours to kill so we went in search of a good happy hour. The ridiculous heat [...]
