New Mobile Food Ordinance Change Proposal Will Benefit Houston

By: Erin Dyer Houston Mobile Food Unit (MFU) Collective has announced new mobile food ordinance changes that will be proposed to Mayor Annise Parker and the Houston City Council on September 26.

Currently, seating outside of the food trucks is not permitted and no downtown food trucks serve hot food because they are not allowed to use propane in downtown locations. Among the proposed modifications are the elimination of the ...

WHY DID THE JACKASS CAMP OUT IN THE ROAD?

Heading home last night, I had to pull over and see why the Chick-Fil-A parking lot was full of tents. Was this the new location for Occupy Houston? Were people protesting Chick-Fil-A’s support of right-wing social issues like the fight against gay marriage? No, as it turns out-100 people were camped out in the Chick-Fil-A parking for 24 full hours in anticipation of the grand opening of their new location! So I got out of the car to take some photos and talk to folks. It was about 1 am, so a lot of people could be heard giggling in ... Read More »

Attack of the Troll-Breeders

by @GunsandTacos Social media networks are like cable providers. You sometimes hate the one you’re using, but it’s kind of necessary to have it around if you want to stay connected. Some may think Yelp is just a restaurant rating site, but it’s actually a “community” of sorts, with forums, clubs, and meet-ups.  For the most part, Yelpers are real people, which is kind of Yelp’s downfall. “Real People. Real Reviews” Yelp is really easy to use. You don’t have to start a blog or pay for hosting, and there are no requirements of writing ability.  The unintentional hilarity of ... Read More »
