Support the independent voice of Houston and help keep the future of Houston Press free.

Turns out, you guys feel passionately about your Inner Loop Krogers. We can debate various monikers all day long -- Posh versus MILF Kroger, etc. But HOPEFULLY only one of you has the nickname for the Kroger on W. Gray that commenter Knittingreader does:

We live in between Disco and W.Gray Kroger. We have always called Posh Kroger, Rat Kroger because I saw a HUGE rat in the health food section the first night that we moved into the neighborhood.

Well, look at the bright side, Knittingreader. If you really saw a rat, then it indirectly led you to receive this major award.

Keep the Houston Press Free... Since we started the Houston Press, it has been defined as the free, independent voice of Houston, and we would like to keep it that way. Offering our readers free access to incisive coverage of local news, food and culture. Producing stories on everything from political scandals to the hottest new bands, with gutsy reporting, stylish writing, and staffers who've won everything from the Society of Professional Journalists' Sigma Delta Chi feature-writing award to the Casey Medal for Meritorious Journalism. But with local journalism's existence under siege and advertising revenue setbacks having a larger impact, it is important now more than ever for us to rally support behind funding our local journalism. You can help by participating in our "I Support" membership program, allowing us to keep covering Houston with no paywalls.
