The Morning After: A Houston Press Brunch Event + Giveaway

I’m pretty sure I’ve mentioned this before buuuuuuuuuuuuut breakfast is my favorite meal of all time.

I’m pretty sure they invented brunch because they wanted to make eating breakfast at a later time acceptable.

But really…I’ve been accustomed to eating breakfast at any time of day since I was two years of age.

Soooooo…I am pretty excited that I get to share with you the latest event that I am sponsoring with the Houston Press.

It’s all about brunch, people.

Yes, the event is called The Morning After (sooooooo clever, right?).


It’s a brunch sampling event that will feature bites from local Houston brunch hot spots, alongside drink samples and music.

The event will take place on Saturday, October 1st from 11:30 a.m. to 2:30 p.m. at the Bayou City Pavilion.

Tickets go on sale Saturday, July 30th on ticketfly.com.

But guess what?

Because the Houston Press is awesome and I’m super special and you are amazing for reading my blog…they are offering you a pre-sale code to purchase tickets early starting today through Saturday, July 30th at 9 a.m.!
