Getting my French On in Houston, TX: Champagne!

photo-12The Texans might razz France about many things, but not about champagne! They love champagne just as much as the rest of the world. Thank God the locals put down their guns (well maybe they were just concealed) for one night and picked up a glass of bubbly! Personally, part of my obsession about France has to do with loving wine and especially brut champagne. I was in heaven last night at the 10th Anniversary party for The Tasting Room in Houston, TX courtesy of fellow travel blogger Leah Walker of Leah Travels who was invited as part of the VIP crowd. Leah is a Houston City Editor for The Daily Meal and an Expert and Correspondent for Forbes Travel Guide.

They also added a huge new shaded area to their outdoor patio, making it a pleasant spot to hang out in for the locals. I am thrilled to part of the local scene, living very close to this location at Uptown Park.

Thanks to Modern Luxury Magazine for the great photo of Leah and moi and to Lauren at The Tasting Room for the VIP treatment and most of all to Leah Walker who generously took me as her date to this bon soirée!
