I'm shocked, not a mention of Houston's Restaurant Week (month) visits

no interest in exploring new/old places during this creative period by Houston foodies or just not posting?

  1. Well??????

    I haven't taken advantage. My lunch buddy and I scanned the list and lunch menus and found little that looked too good to pass up. We were only interested in our general area, but it's bounded by I-10, the SW Freeway, the West Loop and Kirkwood.

    That's a pretty big general area.

    What did we miss?

    1. Meh. Refer to my crabby rant of last year.

      1. I've been out of town for the last couple of months and I'm going to hit an old fav tonight, Hugo's w/friends. Seems a long list of new restaurants in town that I follow on Culture Map. I'll have to immerse and indulge myself once I get off the road. NYC is in the plans next wk. Time to start working out!

        1. I seem to get less and less interested in this as the years go by and I haven't really studied the options this year. All the local media are running features on what the good deals and can't miss options are. I've only identified Latin Bites as one I'd really like to try but I've been wanting to go there for a long time.

          1. My husband and I had a great HRW dinner at Masraff's. We highly recommend it.

            As to Lambowner, you're right - it was crabby, and totally absurd.

              Not really the best way to introduce yourself.

              We would like you to stick around and contribute, but you have to mind your manners. This isn't Yelp or HuffPo.

              Thanks in advance.

                .....or the national boards which at times are not for the faint of heart.

                    I'm talking General Topics, Not About Food, and Food Media News, etc. Not About Food can get especially testy. I've seen you in the crosshairs of some of the less pleasant posters several times, and I've been in my share of unwanted firefights. Sometimes I can't turn the other cheek and fight back against the trolls and what I call likes to argue poster. Fortunately the Houston board is very civil, for the most part.

                      Count me in on those who argue. As you probably know, I can be testy. It's my nature, James. I'm just feisty.

                      1. re: Lambowner

                        I just don't see yourself as one who likes to argue for the sake of argument. Defend yourself, like myself, yes, but there are several prominent posters out there that like to pick a fight, seemingly for the fun of it.

                      2. re: James Cristinian

                        Yeah, I'm just joshing you. I've been there but I vastly prefer the Houston board to the national boards for company. And frankly, some of those topics just seem perennial. How much can you really say about Trader Joe's? Apparently quite a lot. Trying to figure out how to delete topics from my activity page once they have worn out their welcome
