We recently took a Les Givral's sandwich to the Kelvin Arms in the Village, where we devoured it with Miller High Life in the vault on a Saturday night. We are going to start a new trend in the bar scene in Houston.
On your way to your favorite watering hole, stop off to get a quick bite and take it to go -- carne asada burritos, pimento cheese sandwiches, or just a big bag of pretzels. All those places that can't even keep a jar of pickled eggs on the bar or a few damn goldfish in a bowl will soon catch on that we are not going to take it anymore.
Steak night only once a week? No problem! We brought our own bacon jalapeño double cheeseburger. We will call it guerilla barfare...If this catches on, nobody will ever have to pull his blogger card ever again.
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.
