Houston restaurant community supports Linda Salinas

For those who haven't already heard, one of Houston's best known and loved bartenders/somelliers was involved in a scooter accident on Sunday night, and is in Ben Taub ICU at present. Twitter has been alive with information about her condition since shortly after the accident and since, a community of interest restauranteurs, co-workers, industry press and foodies / clientele has formed to provide her support in her time of need.

For more information, or to get involved, follow @TeamQue_Linda on twitter and/or join the Facebook group "Our Friend, Linda":
