Choosing where to post up at Present Company is the hardest part, but after that it's easy rider.  Miami, Malibu, some awesome '80s movie; are we indoor? are we outdoor? Where are we again? Because it doesn't feel like Houston. The upstairs patio is ultimate; especially when the palm trees catch a good breeze. Out-of-the-box cocktails served in milk bottles or La Croix cans, crisp queso fries coming hot out the kitchen. Every nook and cranny visually stimulates; and the playlist only matches the decor.
