It's the freakin' weekend - time to explore and enjoy the sunshine! Our friend Ana (Eatsleeptravelin) collected the best parks with views of us, #DowntownHouston. We thought we'd share a few of her favorites! [make sure to give her a follow as a thank you]

1️⃣ Jim Hogg Park - There is a @houstonbcycle right at the entrance. You can bike down to the White Oak Bayou Trails for even more views of downtown. (Pictured)
2️⃣ Buffalo Bayou Park - Great for going on a walk or a run.
3️⃣ Sabine Street Bridge and Overlook - Great for pictures!
4️⃣ Eleanor Tinsley Park - Ana's favorite + great views for picnics!

One of the most unique buildings in #DowntownHouston houses culinary marvel Theodore Rex. We wholeheartedly love every single dish they serve.

We're also extremely impressed with the way they've handled covid-19; their team has created one of the safest restaurant experiences in the neighborhood. Make a reservation for this weekend to see what we mean (or next, they fill up fast!).

Martin Luther King Jr. visited Houston for the last time in October 1967. Approximately 4,000 people filled Sam Houston Coliseum to hear performances by Harry Belafonte and Aretha Franklin and a speech by the Nobel Peace Prize-winning King. The coliseum was razed in 1999 to build the Hobby Center, but the events of that day made history.

Make Friday night dinner plans with The Nash Houston, #DowntownHouston's most recent restaurant opening.

We wholeheartedly recommend their TO DIE FOR short rib pappardelle (you have to try this!!) and their cheesy Venezuelan tequeños. You won't be disappointed. Trust us.

They also have one of the best happy hours in the city ($25 pizza + bottle special!), available M-F. Make sure to tag us when you visit!

With takeout + curbside options galore, Bravery Chef Hall continues to be one of our fav spots to stop by on the way home. The Blind Goat just happens to be the perfect, easy to reheat, meal for those days you just don't feel like cooking! What's been your takeout go-to lately?

Happy New Years!

This past year we faced some of our biggest challenges yet. So today we toast to 2021, Houston. A year that'll be full of wows, hustles, dunks, eats, #selfies, and celebrations. A year where we'll support local businesses, come back to lively work spaces, take care of ourselves with some staycations, and wine and dine indoors, outdoors, at home, with each other and friends and family. Happy New Year! We're so excited for what's coming.
