We never fall prey to fast food commercials and their new twists on old dishes, but...we saw the ad for funnel cake sticks at Burger King, and our munchie-having stoner inner child awoke inside us. We just had to have them. We know, we know...What can we say, you can take the boy out of the carnival but you can't take the carnival out of the boy. Don't judge us. They actually were pretty good. Funnel cakes should be two things: a dollar and on a paper plate.
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.
