Houston, per the Wall Street Journal


picture by Julie Soefer for The Wall Street Journal
 
Houston was featured in the Wall Street Journal's Off Duty Section this weekend.Given the WSJ's journalistic chops, I was excited to see what Houstonian spots they'd applaud in their article. I assumed I'd then be able to applaud myself for surely have patronized all their recs!

To my surprise, however, not only had I not frequented the majority of their picks - but I hadn't even heard of them!!! Either the article is whack or I am - and it's most likely the latter.
 
While it sucks to learn that I'm out of the loop, it's sweet to have a prolific list of places to try so close to home. Though you can read the whole WSJ article here, I've cliff noted the article for you below. Enjoy!
