Yes, that is another brisket sandwich and homemade potato chips from Buc-ee's. I had to go to Baybrook Mall to get Helen's iPad and then Roni wanted a blanket from Buc-ee's and so what is another 8 miles south. Long story short, I ended up in Texas City at the stroke of noon on Sunday when everyone wanted to buy beer. End of story.
It started with a group of us meeting at Gallery Furniture and then making our way to deliver furniture, clothes and gifts to a family. It was a collaborative effort between Legacy, Mental Health Association-Houston and Gallery Furniture.
After that little jaunt, I decided to reward myself with a Bellini, shrimp po' boy and shortbread cookies from Paulie's even though I knew I'd be having dinner with Margo at Harold's that evening.
I finally made it back to The Galleria to continue with my Christmas shopping. Traffic was a bitch getting there and once I arrived, I decided I was going to valet at Nordstrom because it's just what the doctor ordered.
I made my annual pilgrimage to the tree in the ice skating rink and it wasn't lit!
Usually there is one or two displays that will catch my attention and this year the award goes to Coach!
And so, I was minding my own business and I thought, "Hmmm. I haven't been on the 2nd level of the Nordstrom wing. Let's go that way." So I did and THEN I saw THIS:
The store is closing! At some point it will reopen but not in The Galleria. My bet is that it will re-open in River Oaks District.
And yes, I purchased some more shoes. Can you blame me? It was 70% the last marked price. #MerryChristmasToMe
The City of Houston Mayor's Hispanic Advisory Board held its Annual Holiday Party at Cafe Adobe. Mayor-elect Sylvester Turner was there celebrating his recent win and delivered good to news to the crowd.
Sliders are like people. No two sliders are alike and such was the case when I stopped at Urban Eats and ordered Southern Chicks. I had never thought of a slider being served on Texas Toast but obviously someone did. And...yes, they were yummy!
Until now, I never knew there was a National Cotton Candy Day but the staff at Upper Kirby knew about. So...whilst out on our lunch stroll, The Calvinator and I stopped in and pick up some free cotton candy.
Jim Sikorski held his annual fundraiser at Gloria's in Midtown. It is named Sharing The Bounty. It was quite the crowd and they really did share their bounty. Over $7,000.00 was raised and the proceeds went to Legacy Community Health and Interfaith Ministries Meals On Wheels. Oh, I discovered my new favorite adult beverage...champagne and pomegranate juice!
