Gateway Memorial City

A year into blogging and I am probably at a foodie related event at least once a week.  Still, my favorite events are those with my Houston Food Blogger Collective!  It is fun not to feel like a crazy person whipping out your iPhone every time a new dish appears from kitchen.  When I am among friends, we ALL are eager to get the best shot!  Our most recent HFBC event was no different.  This time we were in for a treat, our hosts Gateway Memorial City invited us to try three restaurants in the Memorial Gateway Complex.  The new State [...]

Miyako Happy Hour

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 [...]
