Where to Eat in Houston Before Renaissance

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, [...]

Renaissance in Toronto

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 [...]

Houston Restaurant Weeks Recommendations

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 [...]

Black Girls Who Brunch Favorite Houston Black Owned Restaurants

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 [...]

Usher Residency in Vegas

This spring I was telling my sister I needed to do something for my birthday.  A trip.  A  concert.  Vibes.  She circled back weeks later noting that Usher just so happened to have a show the day after my birthday in Vegas! It did not take much to sell me.  Just like that we were purchasing concert tickets and planning our trip for the Usher Residency in Vegas. Where to Stay If you are going to the Usher concert, be sure to stay at the Park MGM.  If you have an MGM account or players card, check your account offers [...]

What to do for Juneteenth 2023

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 [...]

Visiting Bangkok Thailand

I had a cool opportunity to visit Bangkok, Thailand with my day job a few weeks back.   We had a conference there and needed representation from my department and I of course was not going to say no!  The trip was a week, but I truly was working and did not get to leave my hotel too much.  But there were a few highlights that I thought were worth sharing on this brief blog post about Visiting Bangkok Thailand. Flying Eva Air If you recall some years backs I flew Eva Air while visiting Taiwan, their homebase.  I knew that [...]

Houston Restaurants to Visit this March

I chilled out on visiting restaurants towards the end of 2022, but once I got back from Ghana it was ON.  I have visited so many new restaurants in Houston that I think you all will enjoy too.  Here are Houston Restaurants to Visit this March. The Lymbar Located in the Ion development near downtown, the Lymbar is a sexy bar with some unique drink and food offerings.  I visited for happy hour and opted for small bites and a cocktail.  It's cute and will likely be a popular spot for Midtown/Museum district residents.
