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 [...]

Planning Group Travel

Rodeo Houston Recap

After a two year break, the Houston Livestock Show and Rodeo came back in full force with all of the events that Houstonians know and love.   I traveled a bit during rodeo season and of course shared with others on my trips about the events going on back at home.  Folks were so confused about this concept that lasts about a month and what it entails.   Back home, my followers had questions about joining committees and navigating the rodeo.   So I decided to break it all down here with a Rodeo Houston Recap sharing all of the fun things from [...]

Let’s Talk Gratuity

A recent dining experience got me to thinking, do restaurants change their rules of engagement based on the type of patrons they have?  For example, if the spot is frequented by black folks so are we more likely to see things like automatic gratuity, dress codes and other rules that impact the dining experience? I am not reaching any conclusions with this post, primarily just sharing my experiences and those of my followers.  If anything my hope is that we can start paying attention to varying dining experiences and also be better diners where applicable. The Dining Experience So here [...]

Coca-Cola Barbecue Wings

*This post is sponsored by Kroger and The Coca-Cola Company but all opinions are my own* March is such a fun month!  We step out of winter hibernation, enjoy spring break and begin those social gatherings that will continue throughout the summer.  One of the other highlights for me is always March Madness! We all create brackets and cheer on our alma maters (MIZ!) as they fight to win the tourney.  If you are like me then you are likely to gather at some point during March Madness so that means that you will need some good bites.   Thankfully, Kroger has [...]
