Happy Hour at Ruth’s Chris

With a little over three years of blogging, I find myself revisiting restaurants that I may have rewritten off in the past.  Most recently, I stopped by Ruth's Chris with my HFBC friends and discovered that I had them all wrong.  I put Ruth's Chris in the "generic steakhouse" box assuming they had no standout attributes.  Well a recent happy hour opened my eyes to so many unique and delicious items from Ruth's Chris that you HAVE to try starting with their happy hour.  Dive on in to this Happy Hour at Ruth's Chris recap!

International Smoke Houston

Gather 'round folks! There is a new Houston restaurant called International Smoke and one of the owners is someone we all are pretty familiar with!

Curry along with her partners brought the Bay Area restaurant International Smoke to Houston a few weeks back and I had the privilege of visiting with a group of food bloggers! Dig in to all of these details on International Smoke Houston! The Setup International Smoke [...]

Present Company

Every few months a new hot spot pops up, someone deems it "Instagram Worthy" then all of the bloggers flock there to take pictures for the gram to impress our followers.  Please know that I am not throwing that shade at anybody but myself because I did JUST this over the weekend.  I grabbed some girlfriends and went to Houston's newest bar Present Company, so I can tell y'all ALL of the tea before you trek over there and spend your coins!

For the Kulture

Earlier this week, I visited Kulture with a group of food blogger friends.  Kulture is a new restaurant in the convention center part of downtown, owned and operated by Marcus Davis, the owner of the Breakfast Klub.  Now, the Breakfast Klub is truly a Houston institution, so I was eager to visit this new concept! In short, as the name implies, this restaurant is the epitome of "For the Kulture!" The Location/Setup Kulture took up residence in the Avendia Houston building which connects to the new Marriot Marquis Houston.  With a prime location, Kulture will certainly pull the after work [...]

Low-key Houston Wine Bars

Cues that monotonous "low-key" song from the Insecure soundtrack that I seem to love.  For a host of reasons many of us are drawn to low-key spots.  Maybe it's a first date and you want less pressure.  Or maybe, it is a night out with girlfriends and low-key means no makeup or heels.  Another good reason, you want to chill in a dark corner by your lonesome!  Whatever reason draws you to a low-key wine bar, this list of Low-Key Houston Wine Bars is for you! Oporto Wine Cafe Their website describes Oporto as a "boutique" spot and I would call [...]

Sunday Funday at Moxie’s Grill and Bar

So I went to Moxie's this weekend because I am a follower.  Yes, I follow the crowd to new spots so I can report back all of the TEA to you all.  So Moxie's vibe reminds me of college!  Hear me out!  The year was 2008, I was a senior and college and really thought I was ALL the way grown.  *Cackles thinking about how wrong I was back then*  My "grown" self LOVED a spot called Houlihan's.  It seemed fancy compared to the Chili's in our small college town.  Part of the fancy came from the $20 entree price-point.  [...]
