Cirque Du Soleil and Ruggles Black

Cirque Du Soleil has made their triumphant return to Houston with their new show, KURIOS- Cabinet of Curiosities!  It sounds mysterious enough to pique my interest.  As always though there is a food plug here!  Local paleo restaurant, Ruggles Black decided to join the fun and create a menu based on KURIOS! I along with a group of my favorite bloggers previewed the special menu last weekend.  Keep reading for my review and more information about Cirque Du Soleil's stay in Houston. THE FOOD So let me start out with this note.  I am familiar with Ruggles Black, but avoided it because "paleo" [...]

March Madness at Russo’s Pizzeria!

It is officially MARCH MADNESS!!!  I have a fun deal from Russo's Pizzeria to share with you, but first lets talk sports! Did you make a bracket? Did your team make it to the big dance??  Can I just say, I LOVE March Madness.  During my college and law school years my school (Mizzou) was often a contender for the big tournament.  For me, there is not a college championship series more fun that basketball!  I was generally an avid watcher until a couple of  years ago when my school lost in the first round to a lower seed.  IT [...]

Grub Burger Bar Lighter Fare

Last week I stopped over to Grub Burger Bar for a tasting of some of their lighter fare! I have been to Grub Burger Bar many times before and somehow managed to never add it to my blog until now.  Do not take this slight as an indication that I do not like this spot, cause I do, so I was glad when they invited me out to for a tasting.  So this time, I am making sure that share ALL the fun details with you all. Location/Setup Grub Burger Bar is located in the heart of City Centre in [...]

Healthy Options at Hopdoddy!

The start of the new year means #NewYearNewMe for a lot of folks.  For us foodies, common new year's resolutions are vows to cook more, eat out less and of course eat healthier.  With those pledges our favorite food spots get dumped at the start of the year and we only come back once our resolutions are forgotten.  Keeping this in mind, the good folks over at Hopdoddy invited me to come back out and try the other side of their menu, the healthy side! Menu! The Details I have been to Hopdoddy before and blogged about it [...]

Peli Peli Kitchen

A couple months back I attended a watch party to cheer on the Houston restauranters behind the Peli Peli concept as they competed on CNBC's Restaurant Startup.  Using the Shark Tank format, contestants compete for an investment to start a new restaurant.   During the show, the team presented a fast casual option to their widely successful Peli Peli restaurant.   The team won the competition and began preparing to open their new concept, Peli Peli Kitchen!  In preparation they also hosted a pop up kitchen earlier this summer which I attended and thoroughly enjoyed.  Now as they open the first Peli Peli [...]

Shake Shack is HERE!

Guess what guys, Shake Shack is here! Shake Shack is here!!!  Well, almost! This past weekend Shake Shack hosted a pop up at Pass and Provisions  to get Houstonians excited about the new addition to the Houston burger scene.  In a few weeks, Shake Shack will take up residence in the newly remodeled Saks 5th Avenue wing in the Galleria.   I got a chance to stop by the pop up last weekend and here are my thoughts. The Food: The menu was a "give them a small taste" type of menu with only a few options.  For example they did not [...]

Hopdoddy Houston

Hopdoody joined the Houston food scene a few months ago and I finally got a chance to stop by!  I visited Hopdoddy during an Austin trip last year and grabbed a burger to go due to the long line.  I blogged about that trip here, but since Hop Doddy is now in Houston, it is worth sharing about the Houston location. On this occasion, we were looking for a spot in the River Oaks district to fill up on some real food before we indulged on gelato over at Amorino.  We figured Hopdoddy's burgers and fries would do the trick! [...]

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 [...]

Uber Eats and the Halal Guys

No one told me that Uber Eats expanded their delivery area to now include my home AND office!  Upon discovering this, I tossed the Lean Cuisine I had for lunch to the side and went straight to the app to order. Within an hour, I had Halal Guys at my door thanks to UberEats.  Check out my thoughts on Uber Eats and the Halal Guys below! How it Works If you have used Uber, you can make your way through UberEats.  The apps are virtually the same.  After selecting your pick up location, you peruse through the menus that are available [...]

Four Seasons Spa Houston

The Four Seasons is one of Houston's premiere hotels located near all the downtown happenings of the Toyota Center, House of Blues and Green Street.  As of late, there is a lot of construction in this area. From new hotels like the Marriott set to have a Texas shaped lazy river, to street upgrades and remodels like the one at the Four Seasons.  I was invited out along with my Houston Food Blogger Collective friends to visit the new upgraded spa and to check out the spa menu! While waiting at the lobby bar, the bartender told me that the [...]
