There is something about Jamba Juice that increases my willingness to part with multiple dollars for an un-fancy orange juice. Maybe they slip something into my drinks. Or what about that matcha green tea smoothie? Yum. But today, let’s try something different. For today only, you can get coffee and tea smoothies at $1 a pop. No coupon needed; just go right up to the counter and order. Thanks to Heari (a.k.a. love.sewn) for the tip. Keep ’em com’in’, guys.
I came across a Twitter feed yesterday that said a San Francisco chef created RVFC–red velvet fried chicken. It’s exactly what it sounds like: chicken dipped in red velvet cake batter, tossed in red velvet crumbs, and then deep fried. The fact that this super- healthy combo exists does not surprise me.

In the land of gargantuan burritos, Chipotle wins the taste test hands down. I think it’s better than some of their competitors (here’s a hint: they rhyme with “Treebirds” and “Tission Turrito”).

Who says nothing good in life is free? With today’s economy, we want all the free stuff we can get.

Those chicken sandwiches are so succulent. And those waffle fries provide the right crunch. Yum! My tummy is churning just writing about it. Thanks to Joanna for sending me this. Now hurry–the coupon
It’s that time of year again. Every August, Houston celebrates Restaurant Week, which inevitably has practically turned into Restaurant Month. Starting this Sunday, August 1, participating restaurants will offer a three-course dinner for only $35 per person and donate $5 from each dinner to the Houston Food Bank. This is a great way to dine at restaurants you’ve been meaning to try at what is often a fraction of the regular menu prices all the while contributing to a good cause. Something new that HRW is doing this year is
Valhalla 6100 Main St. Houston, TX 77005 713-348-3258 $ 5/5 pints I love dive bars, smart people, and cheap drinks. I got all three at Valhalla, a hole-in-the-wall bar located in an old chemistry building on the Rice University campus. We only happened upon this place thanks to a friend of ours who is a Rice alumnus. There is practically no free parking, but it seems the thing to do is just park alongside the road and leave your hazards on. We were skeptical at first but saw several other
