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 [...]

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 [...]

Black Girls Who Brunch Turns ONE!

Guess what! We are ONE year old today! Yay!!! Here's a little BGWB history for ya! I picked the name and set up the Wordpress account in 2014, but sat on it for almost a year, too scared to write and worried about how my blog would be received.  I continued to visit restaurants and stockpile pictures for "one day" when I would actually blog about these places. One weekend in May 2015, I decided it was time to stop being scared and just DO IT! I spent the next few weeks writing various blog posts and finally found my style.   [...]

My Thoughts on the Gaslamp Controversy

I debated touching on this topic on my blog, but what the hey, it is the convergence of my two worlds.  Of course I am a foodie/food blogger, but in my real life I am an attorney.   I have been drawn to the legal aspects of the ongoing drama with the local bar Gaslamp. For those out of the loop, three African American male attorneys attempted to enter the bar Gaslamp in Houston's Midtown area.  The bouncers told them it would cost $20. A note here, bars in Houston do not typically charge cover.  The three men declined and [...]
