Pluckers Houston (Shepherd)

Recently, a client asked me if I had gone to Pluckers yet.  I knew nothing about it, nor had any idea where it was.  On doing some research, it was a block down the street from me!  Pluckers is also located in Austin, San Marcos, Dallas, Louisiana, and a few other places.  We decide today is a good day to go and off to Pluckers we go!  

First, parking is insane...there is none and they have a large parking lot too!  We end up parking a block down the street and on walking in, there is a 20 minute wait.  But wait, there's something going on here...Jose Altuve, an Astro, is here with some Hall of Famer radio announcer named Milo Hamilton.  That's pretty cool!

Our server, Brittany was the best!  She was very helpful and offered options and other suggestions.  I ordered the bone-in wings, in Bakers Gold and Spicy Lemon Pepper.  I would definitely recommend the Bakers Gold, the Lemon Pepper was a bit too salty.  Brittany also brought a plate of sample sauces so I could choose, which I thought was very helpful.  We also ordered the fried pickles which I thought were amazing!  The sliver of pickle and the breading was just right, yum!  Brittany comped us on the pickles because we were first time guest.  She said they try to do something for first time guest, so ask for Brittany and let her know you're a first timer!  Fun, fun!

Heights General Store (19th St)

I was very excited to visit, it's a great place, food was great, one of the best chocolate chip cookies I've ever had, and the staff was great!  Tip, do go upstairs.  There is a full restaurant, outdoor patio, and bar! gets a new face lift!

It's a new year and time for a fresh new look!  On my recent work and personal experiences combined with my trip to Europe late last year left me really inspired to rise above mediocrity.  Changing my website was the first step of my inspiration at work.  My vision for my website was something visually refreshing through a clean and simple lens.  I know photography will have to be a bigger part than it has been in the past.

I am also combining my Soo & the City blog into the site.  We're trying this out for a few months to see if it works out well together.  We're hoping this will be more convenient for you all, as well as myself.  If you're wanting to see an old post from the old blog site, you can see them at

You would be surprised how much work goes into a simple display of information.  Photos below that didn't make the cut for the main pages, for obvious reasons.
