As our sister blog Eating...Our Words does, from time to time Rocks Off will be giving you our picks for the top taverns in various Houston-area neighborhoods. Of course, the lines can be porous, but here anything with a TABC license that cannot reasonably be considered either a restaurant, coffeehouse or live-music venue is fair game.
We think you should know that we're cheerily humming about that naughty ol' Mrs Robinson while writing this. Everyone likes cupcakes. And cougars.
One little confession to make, though. We may have stretched the definition of "bar" on this one a bit, but only in the sense that restaurant bars are on here. But still. Ignore the steaks being served around you and go straight for the liquid diet at those bars. You won't regret it.
