Austin → Houston
Last time on Trevor Tracker I was living off street tacos and trying to join a rock band in Austin. I picked up a couple extra pounds and didn’t make it to stage, so all things considered I’d say it was a successful visit! I also did just a teeny-tiny amount of work getting 360 tours. Now it’s time to jump on I-10 and cruise on over to Houston!
Stadium Tour Continues
For months I’ve been making a point to visit a baseball stadium in every city I visit. I was able to see the Cubs, White Sox, Yankees, Mets, Dodgers, Angels, Giants, Red Sox, Twins, Rangers, and Indians all play at home. Unfortunately the MLB season has come to an end so it’s time to shift my focus to basketball and the NBA. First stop is of course the Toyota Center in Houston to watch the Rockets take on the Utah Jazz. My streak of cheering on the home team to victory is still in tact, I really should start charging for all this good luck I bring!
Texas only has one South African Fusion restaurant, Peli Peli, and it happens to be in Houston. Since I’m all about unique venues, I couldn’t complete my trip without a stop by to say hello. They take great pride in creating authentic dishes packed with flavor. Peli Peli, or Bird’s-Eye Chilli, has become very popular over time and a signature of Chef Paul Friedman’s style. You can checkout the space and book your next event with them here.
No trip of mine can be completed without some influence with the arts, so I had to visit my friends over at Esperson Gallery to check out their latest exhibits. The gallery features tons of great work from not just local Houston, but also national artists of all different styles. It’s location in the heart of downtown makes it a great spot to get everyone together for a night out. You can walk through the space and book your next event here.
Houston, I have a problem
I’ve seen so many space-themed movies in the last 5 years that I’ve decided when I grow up (if I grow up) I want to be an astronaut. What’s not to love about living in a zero gravity environment and getting to eat all my meals out of a ziplock bag? Plus, we haven’t had a man on the moon in over 44 years, it’s about time someone makes another trip. What could possibly be better than a Trevor Tracker from the surface of the moon?
The Salt n Pepper Group has a big stake in the bar & restaurant game in Houston, so visiting with them while in town was a must. Moonshiner Southern Table + Bar is the perfect mix of comfort food and southern hospitality that you’d expect from the state of Texas. And of course, no southern cooking is complete without moonshine and whisky served up in a mason jar. You can check out the venue and book your next corporate outing here.
Next Stop: Washington D.C.
Up next I’m heading to the nation’s capital, Washington DC to see if I can convince Obama to pass me the presidency instead of Trump. If I don’t have any luck, I’ll just pay a couple bucks for a tour of the White House, which is basically the same thing, right? Stay tuned to see what DC has in store for me and of course for all your client entertainment and corporate event needs be sure to visit Kapow.com.
