Sweet Tea and Sweet Victory

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.

The Best Tacos are at Bob’s!

What started in 1991 as only a sno-ball stand, Bob’s Taco Station in Rosenberg, TX now serves arguably the best tacos in Fort Bend County! Bob’s has been featured on Guy Fieri’s “Diners, Drive-Ins and Dives,” and serves up tacos and burritos on their homemade tortillas. You can also buy tamales by the dozen! Alpha’s Karlee Rios is a family-friend of Bob himself and says the food is definitely worth the stop. For their menu and location, visit: https://bobstacos.com
