The Texans. Houston's restaurant scene. Affordability. Diversity. The arts. Depending on your own opinion, these things aren't getting enough attention here in Houston. Or…they’re receiving too much. On this edition of Houston Matters, we ask you: what’s overrated and underrated in Houston, and why?
It can be anything! Sports, food, entertainment, museums – whatever you think should be bragged about more, or doesn't live up to its hype. We’ll also ask editors from Texas Monthly and CultureMap Houston to weigh in.
Also: From competitive coffee service to Dwight Howard’s infinite (and imaginary) playlist, to the demise of area video stores, we separate The Good, the Bad, and The Ugly in Houston news this week, with our panel of non-experts. Today, Houston news oddities are parsed by Chronicle columnist Lisa Falkenberg, Texas Leftist blogger Wayne Ashley, and Off the Kuff political blogger Charles Kuffner.
Plus: We preview this year’s Aerospace Games.
And: As we near the 50th anniversary of President John F. Kennedy’s assassination, Houston Matters’ Edel Howlin talks with Houston Chamber Choir Artistic Director Robert Simpson about the choir’s upcoming performance of Requiem for a President.
