There’s no better way to escape a hot and muggy Houston day than by stopping into a fantastic restaurant for some of the country’s best food. Luckily, America’s fourth-largest city offers an incredible array of dining options; your only problem will be choosing between them! Unique Eats and Eateries of Houston offers an indispensable guide for the hungry traveller. From the discerning gourmand to the pizza-and-burgers crowd, everyone will find something to meet their nutritional needs. Discover The Original Ninfa’s on Navigation for their famous fajitas, or sample standout Japanese cuisine from Chef Hori-sama at Kata Robata. Try buffalo burgers while waiting for traffic to clear up at Bubba’s Texas Burger Shack. Kick your boots up, and throw back a Lone Star at Rudyard’s, then head to the Livestock Show and Rodeo for some Mutton Bustin’. Order a beef rib at Killen’s BBQ, but don’t be surprised if it’s the size of a kindergartener—everything’s bigger in Texas! Tried-and-true Texan Sam Brown brings a local’s insight to all the recommendations in this tasty tour of his hometown, along with the fascinating stories of the people and places behind the food. This book will lead your taste buds on an unforgettable adventure through Houston’s diverse and delicious culinary scene.

Saturday 27 April 2019 – Trivia-Thon for Abortion Access (4-6:30PM)

In this political climate, abortion access is more important than ever. Every donation makes a huge difference in the life of someone who might not have been able to get an abortion otherwise. When we raise funds, we not only make abortion more possible, we show the power and support of everyone who is fighting for access!

This is our biggest annual fundraiser – last year, you helped us raise more than $10k at Karaoke-Thon. This year, our goal for Trivia-Thon is $15,000! You can help us get there!

HOW TO PLAY:

2. Fundraise, fundraise, fundraise.
