Happy Hour

Springbok Houston

Time and time again I find myself trying a cuisine or a restaurant that I would not have tried prior to becoming a food blogger. Springbok on Main Street is the perfect example of this!  A few years back I was invited to happy hour at Springbok.   After a bit of googling, I discovered that Springbok is a restaurant/bar specializing in South African cuisine.  Ignorant old me wanted no parts of that and declined the invitation.  Fast forward to now and I am currently the events chair for the Houston Food Blogger Collective.  Our group was invited to a [...]

Sundown at the Grove

Last Wednesday, I visited Sundown at the Grove presented by Southwest airlines.  The event is weekly and showcases craft breweries paired with cuisine created by the Grove's chef!  I feel a bit cheated since this event has been around for five years and this is only the first year that I heard of it!  When the organizers invited me to attend, I jumped at the chance to experience Sundown and of course share my experience with you all!

Miyako Happy Hour

It feels like I haven't posted a new restaurant on my blog in forever! The problem is, I have been sticking to the places that I know and love, so few new spots.  Then I have gone the way of other food bloggers and microblog more of my adventures on Instagram and Snapchat (shameless plug, follow me there if you do not already!) Anywho one Friday, I was in search of a new Happy Hour to visit with my Foodie group.  I asked my Houston Food Blogger Collective crew and they all gave me great suggestions, many of which I [...]
