There have been many performances in Toby Keith’s career that have elicited both praise and unsurpassed emotion. Songs such as “Courtesy of the Red, White and Blue,” “American Soldier” and “Made in America” can all transport listeners right back to the moment they first heard them, and often, the emotions of that moment just come flooding back in.
So, when Toby took the stage Aug. 9 in New York and began talking about his friend Glen Campbell, who had just passed away the previous day, it was as if the audience instinctively knew that this would be a moment they would [More]

The team behind Houston’s Post Oak Poker Club will soon offer the city’s poker players a card room to rival those in the finest gaming destinations across the country, all in keeping with Texas law.
State law allows for poker games in private homes or businesses, as long as all the money wagered is distributed among the players, and the house does not make any money off the bets themselves. Instead of a traditional “rake” of the pot during each hand, the club will make its money from a seat rental fee of $7.50 per half hour. The seat rental fee allows [More]

I was scrolling through FB and saw that one of my friends made this dish, but with chicken thighs. Suzanne is a big foodie like I am and I was like, “HOLD UP…..WHAT IS THIS?” She got the original recipe from a mom recipe group (love those) and I couldn’t even wait one day. I went straight to the store after work and got the ingredients I was missing. I mean, look at this….how can you not want to eat this?
The sauce is so heavenly, you will want to drink it. I may have drank it….ok I definitely [More]

Just in time for the holidays, changes are coming to the 610 Loop.
The highly anticipated rebuild of the interchange at US 69 near the Galleria is expected to begin later this year, following TxDOT’s contract award to Williams Brothers Construction earlier this week.
Once the entire $258.8 million project is complete, drivers will see a lot of changes to the highway:

While the project is scheduled to run from 2017 through 2021, the contract awarded to Williams Brothers provides [More]

Whataburger is celebrating its anniversary this week – the Texas institution known for its Lone Star flare.
But the orange-and-white-striped table tents used to denote each customer’s order are becoming as iconic as the legendary burgers the restaurant grills every day, 24 hours a day.
The tents are so popular, diners from across the country often take them home – illegally, of course – as “souvenirs.”
However, thanks to a decree from the Houston Police Department, another resourceful, yet, unlikely, use for the iconic knick-knacks is coming to an end:
Police officials are ordering their officers no longer use the table tents as evidence markers at crime scenes.

It’s funny how fights can begin and things can get blown out of proportion and, all of a sudden, you find yourself in the middle of a conversation you never wanted to be a part of in the first place — all because of social media.
Just ask Blake Shelton.
Recently, the country music superstar found himself in quite a controversy as some fans went into all-out outrage mode when they heard the news that Blake’s concert, originally scheduled for August 19 at East Carolina University, was going to be postponed, according to “The [More]

Frank Martell, president and CEO of CoreLogic, said in a press release on the report that, “(Home) affordability is rapidly deteriorating nationally and especially in some key markets such as Denver, Houston, Miami and Washington.”

Dixie Chicks lead singer Natalie Maines has been toning down her anti-President Trump posts, now that she’s moved from Twitter to Instagram. Lately, Natalie has been sharing photos of serene waterfalls and sandy beaches as she vacations in Hawaii. It’s all part of her quest to find some peace of mind in the weeks following the news she’s divorcing longtime hubby Adrian Pasdar.
So much for staying away from politics, though.
In one recent post, Natalie claims she saw some crabs come up on the beach and write out “Trump is a dope.” She was kidding, of course.
