So successful has been the first Tasting Room in Uptown Park that Jerry and Laura Lasco recently opened a second location in Midtown. The Uptown location serves about 200 different wines from around the globe, each hand-selected by the owners. Here, you can taste, drink and shop for wines in a stylish, comfortable and relaxed atmosphere. Novice wine lovers will enjoy the savvy staff, always ready to give advice. Wines by the glass start at $5, and bottles start at $10. Here's to good taste.
Tropioca Tea & Coffee Bar
There are two Tropioca shops in Houston, and while the downtown spot isn't too shabby, the original Midtown location features something that adds a little spice to your pearl-filled smoothie consumption: the most beautiful customers in town. We don't know where they come from, but if you're in your early twenties, Asian and hot enough to have your own photo spread in FHM, then you most likely will descend on this place. Oh, yeah, and the bubble teas are delicious. Our favorites: the green tea melon with litchi jellies, and the strawberry pina colada with pineapple jellies. Tropioca is the ultimate in fine concoctions and fine-ass patrons. It's a beautiful experience all around.
