There’s no doubt that the Integrate Public Relations team has a sense of Texas pride. When I first moved to Texas from Alabama (Roll Tide!), I was a bit overwhelmed by this pride and the love all Houstonians have for their city and state. Being Texas proud is something I’m starting to embrace so, of course, when my parents made the trip down last weekend I took them to some of my favorite places.
I guess you could say that I’m becoming both Texas, and Integrate, proud because I ended up taking my parents to visit two of our clients , Alamo Drafthouse Cinema and Jonathan’s The Rub, while they were here. Watching Draft Day (a must see, by the way) at Alamo Drafthouse was a fun experience unlike anything my parents and I had done before. Let me tell you, there’s nothing better than enjoying a cold one and eating pizza while watching a movie, all while being waited on by the great Alamo staff. Saturday night we ate dinner at Jonathan’s and thoroughly enjoyed every bite! My mom has already requested to eat there again the next time she’s in town.
Besides showing off two of our clients, I also took my parents to see Memorial Park. The park is one of my favorite places in town to go for a run and enjoy the scenery, so I wanted them to see it (and experience the Houston heat!). We also wandered around The Heights, did some shopping at River Oaks Shopping Center and went to see the We Heart Houston sign. After all, I do heart Houston!
Houston is a great city with tons of cultural places to see, entertaining things to do and delicious restaurants, like Jonathan’s and our other restaurant clients, (of course!), to enjoy. Whatever you’re in the mood to see or do, it can definitely be done in Houston! All of these wonderful things, plus many more, are just some of the reasons I come to love and cherish Houston, and why I’m now Houston proud.
I’m an Alabama girl at heart but am proud to say I’m a transplant Texan. Be sure to check out the whole Integrate Public Relations team to see where our other PR and social media pros are from!
