With all the destruction that Hurricane Harvey and the resulting flooding brought to Houston, the monthly Houston Coffee & Cars was delayed a week from their usual first Saturday of the month schedule. Along with the re-schedule, the staff also turned the event into a Harvey relief drive to help
San Japan X marked the 10 year anniversary of the annual Japanese culture and anime convention held in San Antonio, Texas. I have never attended this con before but it was recommended, so I decided I should go check it out. Unfortunately the aftermath of hurricane Harvey meant many parts
Saturday morning of August 19, 2017, I had a bumpy start for my departure to Dallas. I was initially planning to leave the day before to join the activities Friday night but I had to finish some work before heading out. After wrapping up my work, I crashed for the night and planned
August 13 marked the date for Slammedenuff to return to Texas to host their car show. This year, the show came down to Austin instead of returning to Dallas. As the event date approached, I was still contemplating whether or not I should attend the event. I finally decided on
With summer coming to an end, or perhaps with the school starting at the end of the month, this month’s turnout for Houston’s Coffee and Cars was the biggest one yet. Initially, I was a bit worried about the attendance as rain was in the forecast, but fortunately, that rain didn't
Models come in all shapes, sizes, and personalities. This is definitely true with quirky and energetic southern belle Heidi Jo. Growing up participating in various pageants since the age of 3, she's no stranger to the stage and modeling has been a big part of her life.
Roars of revving engines echoing down the street. A warm breeze cutting through the summer night. Fluorescent light spilling across a blacktop parking lot. Three of us standing beside an Acura parked at Kim's Teahouse in Houston, Texas.
It all felt so familiar, I could hear Nelly's "Hot in Herre" playing
In my never-ending quest for more conventions to attend this year, I discovered Anime Austin. This was the first time I had heard of this convention, which is focused on anime and Japanese pop culture. After coming across this exciting discovery, I hit up their website to find more info
Over the holiday weekend, Houston Coffee & Cars returned to Memorial City Mall parking lot for this month’s gathering. With holidays, you never know how that could change the size as some people travel. I wasn’t sure if it would be bigger or smaller, or maybe no change at all.
The car scene in Houston is as diverse as its population. One weekend you can find yourself at a car meet full of luxury sports cars, and the next, at a car show filled with exotic imports. On this specific June weekend, I found myself at Texas Showdown, surrounded by
I have two distinct memories of Gulf Greyhound Park in Houston, Texas.
The first, is of my uncle leaping over two rows of bleachers in celebration, as his dogs finished First, Second, and Third at Gulf Greyhound Park, claiming the Trifecta. I'd never seen a man so exuberant before that night.
Originally, I had planned to bring my Hyundai Veloster out to the monthly Houston Coffee and Cars gathering at Memorial City Mall. Well, plans quickly changed a few days before and I wasn’t sure if I would be able to make it at all. Morning of the event, I was in fact
While searching for more comic and anime conventions to attend, I came across Alamo City Comic Con located in… you guessed it, San Antonio (for those of you who guessed "Alamo City" no marks!), but if you're from Texas, you should of guessed correctly. Unfortunately it was over a holiday weekend
I was still feeling energized from my last Anime convention, and I was looking forward to my next con. Fortunately for me, my entire family enjoys going to comic conventions too, even though it’s been awhile since we have all been able to go at once. Since they all missed out
Anime Matsuri XI has come and gone. Now, for many of us, it’s time to start counting down 'til next year’s convention. Not sure what Anime Matsuri is? Well ‘matsuri’ is a Japanese word meaning "festivals," and Anime Matsuri is Houston's largest anime and Japanese culture convention, held annually for
As the clouds of burn out smoke fade in to the air and the 2-Step pops and Nitrous purges transition into cricket chirps and silence, TX2K17 officially comes to a close. What an event though! Multiple records were broken, literally tens of millions of dollars’ worth of cars converged on
To many people across the country, and even world wide, Lone Star Throw down is considered the official start to show season every year. It is a massive custo...
What is Stancewars? Before the car show, I honestly didn’t know who they were. It all started in Seattle, Stancewars is a growing fitment based event which you could gathering from the name. With success in Seattle and Vegas, the next stop was Houston.
To enter your vehicle in the show,

This past Saturday, it was finally time for Houston's biggest Subaru event to return for the annual The Big Event 8 held at the Gillman Subaru South dealership. If you are a Subaru fan in the Houston area, you have heard of this car show, and it's one on the
The Friday hangover may be lingering in your system, or you just awoke from the best sleep of your life (I won't tell you which one I was), but there is no better way to kickoff a Saturday than grabbing a fresh cup of coffee, getting some breakfast in your

Time sure does fly by, and with the last few months being pretty busy some things got left behind. One of the things that got forgotten was my coverage of the Wekfest Texas car show that was hosted back in the middle of October here in Houston. As I was
