Much of Texas has been blessed with a “cool” month of June, but this is still Texas so we all know it’s just a matter of time before those temperatures hit the triple digits. If you’re looking for some air conditioned fun, head over to Houston’s Tea and Victory for some old-fashioned board games! Grab a couple of your favorite people to play one, or a few, of their over 500 board games! You read that right, over FIVE HUNDRED. Have some friendly competition while enjoying some loose-leaf tea, locally roasted coffee, and unique treats.
Visit http://teaandvictory.com/ to learn more about one of Houston’s first board game cafes.

Recently, Alpha’s Karlee Rios visited a popular spot in Plano right outside the Shops at Willowbend called Whistle Britches! Open for brunch, lunch and dinner, this is a perfect place to get biscuits, fresh fruit and specialty chicken dishes like a Hot Dang Chicken sandwich or Sir Mix a Lot Biscuit. This restaurant is new to the DFW area but has been featured on Guy Fieri’s “Diners, Drive-Ins and Dives” for bringing the heat back to unique brunch entrées.
If you’re in Dallas or Plano, stop by one of the two locations to taste what’s happening at Whistle Britches!
