Enjoy a Houston Day Out Visiting Bounce Energy Businesses
Texans know firsthand that it is currently blazing hot outside. What better way to beat the heat during these hot summer days then by going to places indoors that are entertaining and most importantly have cool air conditioning. As a Texas energy provider, Bounce Energy powers many places around Houston. So many that you can plan a fun, full day of things to do inside around Houston all that are powered by Bounce Energy. Here’s what a day like that would look like.
Breakfast…word on the street is that it’s the most important meal of the day. Since that’s the case, I begin the day at Kraftsmen Café. This local Heights joint offers a wide selection of premium breads, breakfast tacos (yes, please) hand-crafted sandwiches (croissant sandwich) and much more. It’s the perfect place to start the day off right and keep out of the heat.
Once I am done feeding my face, I head over to the Heights Contemporary Fine Art Gallery not only to keep cool but to see some cool artwork. This art gallery represents emerging artists from all over the world with an emphasis on Southeast Texas and South American artists.
After working on my intellectual side at the gallery, it’s time to work on my “back side” before lunch. I’ve heard a lot about ZAAZ, a Whole Body Vibration studio, so what better time to try it out? They pride themselves on profound results in weight loss, toning, metabolism and muscle strength from just 10-minute workout sessions (they say it is compares to a 1 hr workout at the gym) not to mention it’s cool and air conditioned.
Seeing as I “worked out” and ate relatively healthy for breakfast, I am ready to splurge for lunch, and I know exactly where to go! I’ll head out west for one of the best burgers in Houston at The Burger Guys in the Westchase area. The burgers are made of 100% Akaushi beef, the hand-cut fries are cooked in duck fat (amazing) and the soft drinks are made from real cane sugar. Now, for those looking for something on the lighter side, head to any Snap Kitchen location (all powered by Bounce Energy) to enjoy a selection of healthy “foodie” items made fresh daily for the person on the go.
As soon as lunch is over, the food coma sets in and it’s time to relax. Did someone say its mani/pedi time? I think so, and I head towards Q Nails in West U. There you can forget about the heat and enjoy a relaxing spa pedicure and manicure or any of their other spa services.
Once the nail polish dries, it’s off to the movies, Sundance Cinemas, that is. Sundance Cinema is located in Bayou Place, downtown, and is a great escape from the heat and a fun place to watch a movie. There you can enjoy a cocktail, beer or wine and have a quick delicious snack.
After the movie, I have to stop and grab a drink at one of my favorite places, Boheme Café and Wine Bar. It’s a cozy setting located in a refurbished historical building nestled in the Montrose area. To please your taste buds, you can sip on something from their full craft cocktail bar or enjoy their unique selection of beer and limited production, boutique wines. To please your stomach, order from the tapas and pizza menu carefully crafted by their in-house chef.
Following Boheme, I have just enough energy to enjoy a delicious dinner before I call it a day. The restaurant of choice is Latin Bites, a scrumptious Peruvian restaurant located just outside of the Galleria area. Here diners can enjoy a fresh take on the wonderful flavors of South American cuisine. Whether you try the fresh Peruvian-style cebiche from their Cebiche bar or a sampler of their delicious appetizers such as arepas, causitas or empanadas you won’t be disappointed!
Did I say call it a day? I meant to say that after dinner I need a little sweet treat to call it a day. Before heading home, I’ll make a quick trip to Sugarbaby’s for one of their scrumptious cupcakes. With 12 delicious cupcake flavors to choose from and other sweet goodies like their French macrons, fudgy brownies, mini cheesecakes, and Pop-up Cupcakes there’s something for every sweet tooth out there.
Once the day is done, I head home with an appreciation of Houston and all that it has to offer, especially all it has to offer indoors (thanks Bounce Energy!). Stay cool Houston!
