My only request for my Bachelorette Party was that we go somewhere warm. And where did I end up? HOUSTON! Natives of Houston were even surprised that a bunch of New Yorkers ended up in Houston for such an occasion. It probably wouldn’t have been my first choice, but it ended up being a fun getaway with the girls. We made the mistake of going Easter weekend and alot of places were closed, but we still made the best of it.
We drove around Houston checking out all the different art murals that the city had to offer. And if we weren’t doing that, we were probably eating. Sadly, BBQ was a huge letdown. We first went to Rudy’s, a local chain BBQ restaurant. The food was good, but no different than what we can get back at home. Disappointed, we ventured to Brisket House because it was listed on Thrillist as one of the top places for BBQ in Houston. It definitely was better than Rudy’s, but still not mind blowing.It’s no secret that I love brunch. And if you’re in Houston, you need to try the Breakfast Klub. Don’t be intimidated by the long lines that wrap around the restaurant. The line moves fast and it’s worth the wait! We pretty much tried everything off the menu, but we all agreed that the fried chicken was the best! You must add honey and hot sauce for a winner combo.
Another winner restaurant was the Crawfish Cafe. This hidden gem was in a run down mini-mall in Chinatown. The Thai Basil seasoning was the best! We ordered 6 pounds of seafood for 4 girls and nothing was left behind. I’ve seen trolley pubs in other cities, but never actually went on one. Lucky me got to try it out and it was the best thing ever. The Trolley Pub was basically a bar crawl on wheels. Everyone on the “trolley” petals while there’s a guy steering. The vehicle moves so painfully slow that you can probably walk faster. We only petaled about 2-3 blocks before ending up at a bar. Everyone on the trolley got along really well and it was definitely a memorable night.Another bar to check out is Howl The Moon. I’ve never been a dueling piano bar, but it was tons of fun. These were some of the most talented musicians I’ve ever seen.Houston didn’t have a ton to offer, but I was amongst some of my favorite people and that made this weekend a special one! Thank you to these girls for embarrassing me with that sash and crown. I will remember this when you all get married
