On Tuesday, we asked you to decipher a series of puzzles in which 20 well-known Houston restaurants had their names/logos chopped and screwed. We received a ton of correct answers from you, our clever readers, which means a lot of people went into the pool to win a set of cookbooks and food tomes from the EOW private stash.
But before we get to the correct answers for the scramble, give a big congrats to our winner: Shanna K. Honorary mention goes to reader Charlie W. for suggesting that we give out Jumbacos as consolation prizes. Next time, Charlie. Next time.
Now: the answers (clockwise from top left).
If you enjoyed the puzzle, let us know. We just might make some more... (God knows we have enough cookbooks to give away.)
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.
