    Oh my.

    Based on the research that’s come back from the Houston Food Finder team, our next cocktail post is going to feature this.

    It’s probably not going to be this weekend (it’s a fix stuff around the house kind of a weekend) but consider this a bookmark for stocking up on rum.

    The Weekender Cocktail: Three Blind Refs

    In the late 1980s, I worked at a radio station that catered to a Hispanic audience and was heavy on the club music of the day. One of the things I learned was the phrase “Can I request a song?” or “Can you play (song)” doesn’t translate well from Spanish into English. The closest you can get is “Can you put on (song)?” and more often it would come out “Could you put (artist)?” We used to joke around that we needed to get the voice guy to do a “Power 92 Puts!” drop for us that we could mix in with “Dance your ass off.” Continue Reading

    Two Perfect Days: Galveston, TX

    Summer may be over, but that doesn’t mean this island has shut down for the season.
