"Whether we're highlighting the talents of local artists, celebrating the city's vibrant and expanding food scene or directing readers to the best of Houston's culture, bars, nightlife and shops, if it's important to Houston, we've been there to cover it, good and bad.

Through it all, our writers have been wandering with eyes open and notebooks ready to bring Houston's hidden gems to surface, making our online presence a priceless resource for people who love Houston as much as we do.

Love? Yeah, that's right. If we've raked up some muck searching for those gems, that's because we love what Houston is and what it can become. Just don't tell anyone, though. We have a reputation to maintain."
