Houston, Here We Come: Things to Do, Eat and Visit in Space City

My family moved to Houston when I was 3 years old. Though my little sister cried for most of the cross-country road trip, my parents did not take my advice to leave her in Chicago and we all arrived in the Bayou City. I took up the cowgirl hat and any excuse I could to wear my boots with every outfit.


Visitors to Houston will find the city is served by 2 large, international airports (IAH & HOU), the restaurant scene is diverse and extensive, the city’s museums range from the acclaimed Children’s Museum to the beautiful Rothko Chapel, and the attractions of the surrounding area.

Downtown Austin Restaurants Near #XDC2015

It’s been over 7 years since Dana persuaded me to come interview with Xojo and leave the downtown law firm I’d been working at. Downtown has changed a lot in that time, some of it is barely recognizable. So many of my old haunts are gone but I’m not looking back, I’ve discovered a whole slew of new dining experiences in downtown. As I mentioned in my earlier post covering things to do while visiting Austin, there is nothing a Texan loves as much as talking about food. Austin offers an eclectic and seriously yummy variety of restaurants, here are some local favorites you should try while in town for #XDC2015.
