  • halloween 2010
    October 30, 2014
    So you've carved the pumpkin, watched more than a couple scary movies and taken advantage of the bulk candy sales at Kroger (for the trick-or-treaters of course!) But let's face it, Halloween just isn't complete without a big show. And with the 31st falling on a Friday, you'd be crazy not to make 2014 a scare to remember. Whether you're looking for true fright or family friendly, here are five very different events happening Halloween night in Houston. Scream on the...
  • Glenwood 1
    October 28, 2014
    As the weather continues to cool its prime time to get out and explore Houston's outdoors. While Hermann Park and Buffalo Bayou are obvious (and must see) destinations, a trip to Glenwood Cemetery is a unique landmark worth checking out, especially while Halloween still lingers in the air. Founded in 1871, Glenwood Cemetery is one of Houston's unique landmarks. Situated on 84 acres along the Washington Corridor, Glenwood Cemetery serves as a serene resting place for some of...

  • Restaurant Week 2014
    October 24, 2014
    It comes as no surprise that Houstonians have broken their own record for eating and giving back, arguably our two favorite things. For those who are surprised, consider this: locals eat out more than residents of any other city in the country--4.1 times a week compared to the national average of 3.1 times--according to Zagat. What's more, an assessment of Houston and its charities by the group Charity Navigator shows that H-Town is the second most philanthropic city in the country. Houston

  • Downtown
    October 10, 2014
    For the first time ever this year, Houston ranked among the top five places in the nation on Travel + Leisure's list of America's Favorite Cities-one of the most-watched lists among destinations and a barometer of what's top-of-mind among traveling Americans. As a destination, Houston has tremendous strides in recent years, with a robust arts and culture scene and ever-expanding culinary landscape. Now, the city has ranked No. 2 on the T+L list, which tallies more than 50,000...

    Space Center Houston has been named Houston's first Smithsonian Affiliate. The official designation came this week. The Smithsonian program gives the center access to more than 138 million artifacts, specimens and works of art in the national system, as well as more than 50 traveling exhibitions through the Smithsonian Institution. Officials at Space Center say the national recognition and exposure for the institution is expected to increase annual visits, boosting the center's $45...
  • My Table Awards
    October 6, 2014
    Last night, My Table magazine gathered many of H-Town’s most-loved foodies to celebrate the 2014 Houston Culinary Awards. Held at the Houstonian, the annual event toasted the city’s top restaurants, chefs, bartenders, bakeries, bars and farmer’s market vendors—all voted on by My Table readers. Though many area businesses were recognized, a few took special honors. Tracy Vaught, who owns Backstreet Cafe , Hugo’s and the recently-opened Caracol , walked away with...
  • Charlie Chaplin
    October 1, 2014
    Well known Houston artist David Adickes is on a mission to shine a light on the silent film era. In true Adickes fashion, he's accomplished this by constructing a hard to miss 34-foot-tall Charlie Chaplin statue. Around town you'll find past works like his monumental "Presidents' Heads" and the "We Heart Houston" sculpture along Interstate 10 inside the 610 Loop. His latest project can be found at his new studio near the interchange of the Eastex Freeway and...
