It’s just about time for one of our favorite charity events, Cinco Charities’ Katy Sip’n Stroll. The event will take place Thursday, April 18th from 6:00 PM to 9:00 PM in the Villagio Center in Katy.
The Villagio Center will be full of wine tasting stations, samplings from local restaurants, specialty brews and local shops. Did we mention there will be live music as well? Last year’s Katy Sip’n Stroll resulted in more than 1000 attendees on a beautiful evening.
The Sip’n Stroll isn’t just an enjoyable evening; its purpose is to benefit Cinco Charities. This local non-profit’s mission is to provide temporary housing for families within our community that are struggling with serious medical conditions or are hospitalized.
Katy’s Sip’n Stroll is a great way to not only spend
an enjoyable evening or two outside, it’s a fantastic way to make sure that an organization that’s doing a lot of good in our community is able to continue it’s work for local families in the future.

The first ever Houston Barbecue Festival will be held on Sunday, March 24, 2013 from 1:00 PM- 5:00PM at the Bayou City Event Center. The goal of the festival is highlight Houston’s spectacular barbecue and the folks that make it happen. And our favorite…to taste firsthand what makes Houston barbecue so special.
There will be a limited amount of tickets and all will be sold in advance. That means you can’t show up at the festival and
expect to get in, so order them now! It will also mean that you’ll get just close enough to smell that mouth-watering goodness, but will go home without tasting those finger-lickin’ good ribs and brisket. In our opinion, that’s just plain unacceptable!
