    There are a myriad of reasons why people love watching movies. Some people use movies as an escape from reality, while others enjoy realistic reflection of decades past. Depending on the viewer and the content, movies can evoke feelings of joy, love, sorrow, anger or even confusion. To honor films, the creative minds behind them and showcase this storytelling medium, the Houston Cinema Arts Society is hosting the 10 th Houston Cinema Arts Festival from Nov. 8 – 12. However, the festival...

    The NBA season is back and now it's your chance to get in on the action. With the addition of several key players, most notably Carmelo Anthony, our Rockets have their eyes set on one thing: bringing a championship back to Houston for the first time since 1995. This season is set to be one of the most exciting in recent memory, as a stacked Western Conference is going to put up a tough fight. Though, if there's one thing we saw from the Rockets last year - they aren't going to be...

    After scarfing down funnel cakes and turkey legs all day at the Texas Renaissance Festival, the first thing on any festival-goer’s mind is a nap. Rather than packing in and heading home, our suggestion is to pitch a tent at the festival. Spend a night under the stars at The Fields of New Market Campground and be one of the first in line for the next day’s activities at the fair. Back in the early days of the campground, it was not the most glamorous affair; though, now armed with...

    Ready, set, hike! The 2018 NFL season officially begins today and you know what that means... the Texans are back in town! This upcoming season has Houston in a buzz, given that promising young quarterback Deshaun Watson is back on the field with his team after an early exit last year, due to injury. It's safe to say that our team won't be holding anything back as they look to win the NFC South for the fifth time ever and leave a mark on the season. With eight games at NRG Stadium ,...
  • Chicago Bean at Museum of Fine Arts Credit: Visit Houston
    May 23, 2018
    A little background on our feud with Choose Chicago: Houston now has it's own "bean" ( Cloud Column ), located at The Museum of Fine Arts, Houston . Our friends at Choose Chicago are trying to prove that their bean (Cloud Gate) is better. They are wrong. Nevertheless, they sent us a little gift package welcoming our "newborn" bean; even though, our bean was actually sculpted first... and, is better. Obviously. Well, being that we are super-hospitable, we decided to take...
