Don't Mind the Zebras at Houston's Coziest "Strip Pub"

"Don't worry, they died of natural causes at a farm out in East Texas," the older man says. "We raised all sorts of exotic animals out there."

Mouth open, we're staring at a pair of stuffed zebras, right past the row of topless dancers flanking them. To be fair, mounted animals are surrounding us, but something about this pair of zebras, glowing eerily under the strip-club lights, had us concerned about the cause of their demise.

Luckily, Frank Kent knows firsthand. Manager of Sharpstown's Colorado Bar & Grill (6710 Southwest Fwy.), perhaps Houston's finest strip club, he was the one who raised them.
