When I decided to compile a list of Black Girls Who Brunch Favorite Houston Black Owned Restaurants it was partly because of how our dining scene has changed over the years. We have seen somewhat of a Black Renaissance in Houston with a massive growth of Black businesses and Black restaurants in the city. We have also seen an increase in tourism and people's awareness of our dining scene. With that comes a variety of opinions and critiques. What I have found is that a lot of places that people visited seeking a dining experience, are actually bars. Then, within [...]

Listen folks, we are in the midst of the new roaring 20s, hot girls summers, vaxxed and outchea'! As a Houstonian I have been thoroughly enjoying what my city has to offer this year and noticing a lot of new fun places that happen to be black owned. A friend of my encapsulated this moment so well, stating that Houston is undergoing a Black Renaissance! While there are still struggles within the city such as genetrication, flooding, and necessary progressive reforms, in many ways Houston is booming floating on population growth. For me, a lot of the fun and excitement [...]
So when I travel there are a few musts for me when it comes to food. First, I want to stick to locally owned spots that reflect the local cuisine and culture. Next, I gotssss to find a brunch spot. The reason there is obvious! Beyond that though, I also really like supporting black owned businesses! While thinking about these three things, I decided to put together a list of black owned brunch spots around the country! I reached out to my vast blogger circle and friends for their advice and posts so that we can spread some love via Black [...]
Let's talk about Where Black People Live in Houston. Years ago I created a neighborhood guide with the intended audience being fellow Houstonians or recent transplants. I never finished part two (my fault), but part one showed my favorite spots in some of the quintessential neighborhoods in Houston. Google searches are interesting particularly with my blog including the word "Black" in it. As such, black people who were looking to move to Houston found my blog when trying to find the best neighborhoods for Black families. So I started getting emails asking me "where should I live" and whew THE [...]
Happy Black History Month folks! This month, we celebrate our culture and our history!

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.

So, I went to see Beyonce in Toronto in July. And about halfway through that concert I knew that as a Houstonian, I was going to have to make sure that I was in the building for the Houston show as well. Now, I have yet to secure my tickets, because these prices are highway robbery ($600 for the 600 level!). We know this is partly because many out-of-towners decided that Houston would be the best place to see Bey as this is her hometown. Heavy sigh, we need an ID check at the door! Over the last few weeks, [...]
When Beyonce announced the Renaissance tour dates, my friends and I were scrambling to find a city to see the show. Yes, I live in Houston and obviously her hometown would be an excellent place to see her. However, we wanted to get a vacation out of it! So we looked at the schedule and picked Toronto. A city that was new to all us. Our group included about 10 ladies from Houston and Missouri. We had a great time! Here is my recap of Renaissance in Toronto! Where to Stay Within the group, we stayed at various hotels all [...]
Calling all Houston Foodies, restaurant weeks is upon us! Houston Restaurant Weeks (HRW) starts on August 1st and goes through Labor Day Weekend For those newer to the city, during the month of August, Houston restaurants feature unique menus for brunch, lunch and dinner ranging from $25-55. These meals are generally two to three courses at some of Houston's best (and often most expensive) restaurants. The best part? A portion of the proceeds goes to the Houston Food Bank. By 2022, HRW had raised $18.8 million dollars for the Houston Food Bank. Each year people slide into my DMs asking [...]
Juneteenth is around the corner and many people are still looking for things to do for the holiday. With the national acceptance of the holiday being new, I find that people, mainly Black people want to honor the day appropriately by focusing on the history. The other thought is, lets rest. Living in this country as a Black person can be traumatic. Every day there is a new story of a person being harmed or killed simply because they are Black. This is daunting to say the least, so taking a day off in this capitalistic system to rest and [...]
