On this edition of Houston Matters, we take up the notion of Houston as an “A-list” city, in terms of concerts and performing arts, the sports world, and among foodies.

As a city “up there” with other major cities in those specific worlds. Do the top performers make a point of touring here? Do we present or receive the best theatre and dance? Do restaurateurs make a point of opening up restaurants here? Do the people in and around professional sports think of Houston as one of the top sports cities, in a league with New York or Boston? And whether they do or they don’t, should we care? We’ll welcome your thoughts.

Also, a lot can happen in a week – some of it good, some of it bad, some of it downright ugly. As we do every Friday, we’ll turn to our panel of “non-experts” to parse “The Good, the Bad, and the Ugly” of it all.

And, we’ll discuss changes in the media landscape here in Houston with our own Rod Rice, who retires today, after more than 40 years in radio.
