Happy Black History Month folks! This month, we celebrate our culture and our history! As a brand built on the celebration of blackness in the area of food and a lover of black history, I would be remiss if I did not highlight February. For the month of February, I along with the Black Blogger Clique will be celebrating Houston’s Black Owned Restaurants! One of our collective goals is to highlight and support black owned restaurants through our blogs and we have found some fun ways to do just that for February. Check out the details below on Celebrating Black History Month with the Black Blogger Clique!
Our group came together to curate a list of our current favorite black owned restaurants in Houston, plus our favorite dishes from the restaurants. Now while our list only features twenty-four restaurants, please note that there are so many other great black owned restaurants in Houston! In fact, if your coins are right, you can literally eat at a different black owned establishment for the entire month of February! Here are our suggestions to get you started
Here are the places that I have not been just yet, but come recommended by other members of the BBC! Lets see if I can visit them all before February is up!
- Cool Running
- Daiquiri Shack
- Stuff Baked Potato Factory
- Green Seed Vegan
- Catfish Station
- Stuff’d Wings
- Blue Nile
So now you have the list above, lets play a little game! We took this list and added our favorite dishes to create the Houston Black Restaurants game which we have affectionally rebranded as “BLACK” instead of “BINGO.” So here is how it will work. First you need to be sure to follow @BlackBloggerClique on Instagram. During the month of February we will be hosting giveaways featuring the restaurants included in the game. In order to qualify for the gift cards, you will of course need to follow the old school bingo rules! Get five in a row either vertical, horizontal or diagonal. Please be ready to provide yo receipts as well i.e. pictures (and tag us!)
As you play BLACK over the course of February please be sure to tag @BlackBloggerClique and the restaurants in your social media posts! Also, watch out for other black foodie related events from us as the month goes on!
