The Astros have become the first major league team to reach 50 wins.

    Astros use trio of homers to earn win No. 50
    George Springer slapped the dugout railing. Tony Kemp rose beside him, hand on head in disbelief. Jose Altuve trotted up the first-base line, the home run he launched still nowhere near its final resting place somewhere among the throngs of people populating the Crawford Boxes.

It’s Soft-Shell Crab Season at Picos

$$ Mexican/Tex-Mex 3601 Kirby Dr.

    It's Soft-Shell Crab Season at Picos
    It's that time of year: the crabs have cast off their shells. Cast no aspersions, however, on their sans-exoskeleton status as now they can be cooked and consumed whole. There's really little else more satisfying than being able to eat a sea creature in toto, and while soft-shell crab dishes are popping up all over Houston, I will, as I do every year, head to Picos for my crustacean fix.

    Kids Eat Free All of June at Applebee's
    Eating at restaurants gets a lot more expensive once kids come into the picture, so much so in fact that dining out is out of the question for many households on a budget.
