All of this in mind, I was very excited to try Lil’ Doddy, the new restaurant that opened April 15, on William Cannon. Hopdoddy Burger Bar’s reach is expanding, and has opened up a n...

Luckily, there are plenty of new and exciting places and events to try out this year to make the most...

Among students, one of the most popular places to sit down or pick up some food before class is Torchy’s Tacos. However, with the closest location previously being 3.9 miles away, not everyone could make the trek there and back so easily. This problem was fixed as of Nov. 13, 2018. Despite being a food...

I went to three movie theaters, pursuing the answer to which one is the best, and am ranking them based on their atmosphere, service and food.

Last year on food blog Wide Open Eats, reviewer J. Marie Martin made the bold move of claiming Kerbey Lane Cafe’s Kerbey Queso was the best queso in the entire state of Texas— without even including Torchy’s Tacos’ Green Chile Queso on the list. To revisit the age-old debate of Torchy’s vs....

When I hear someone mention Marvel, I think about a big-time hero fighting a bad guy and getting the girl. It seems like a handsome good-guy, most likely played by an actor named Chris, beats up an ugly bad guy every time. “Venom” directed by Ruben Fleischer and produced by Marvel Entertainment, owned b...
