💥THURSDAY SPECIAL 💥
AAA Inspired Chicken & Dumplings are on special every Thursday for both lunch and dinner!
You might remember AAA Diner on Airline Drive. It was a staple restaurant that was open for 74 years. We’ve taken their Chicken & Dumplings recipe and created our own version to hopefully pay homage to their history.
Come warm up with a hot plate!
We’re serving lunch 11-3 🍴
And dinner 4:30-8:30 🍴
——————————————
Don’t forget our SENIOR SPECIAL: 20% OFF dinner for senior citizens (roughly 60+) AND a free scoop of @sweetcupgelato 🍨 happening every Tuesday, Thursday and Friday.

Welcome to St. Peter United! You are just in time to see the first stop on our tour! 🚪⠀
.⠀
What many don’t know about our community is that there is a rich history behind our church dating back to the 19th century! As we see more & more new faces, we we want to share with everyone what makes this place truly special. ⠀
.⠀
All around our grounds you will find multiple historical markers, but our first stop is our beautiful historical chapel, built in 1848 🙊 ⠀
.⠀
Stop by sometime & see the wonderful artifacts we keep on display! For our history buffs out there, can you guess the country roots of our chapel’s builders? #commentbelow

These are from a shoot I did at Glenwood Cemetery. The photos of the final resting place of Howard Hughes (and his parents). There’s a locked gate and a high fence so it was difficult getting the second photo. #glenwoodcemetery #howardhughes #houstonhistory

I was in a tulle skirt kind of mood! I looked in my @pinterest closet for ideas. I hadn’t worn it with a denim shirt. Still trying to decide between my black & blue Chinese shoes and my leopard sandals.

North Shore Motor Hotel
13213 North Shore Drive (aka I-10/East Freeway), Houston, Texas.

Built: 1960

The motel is still there, now known as Studio 6 Houston. That ‘sixties-looking’ coffee shop at the front of the property, right off the feeder road, was torn down sometime between 2002 and 2009. It stood approximately where the motel sign tower is today.

Sometimes you get that tingly feeling when you stumble on some very interesting historical tidbit: here is an April 3, 1952 ad from Rio Grande Tortilla Company, which was owned by Ninfa and Thomas Laurenzo (yes, the Ninfa of Ninfa’s and the factory was on Navigation where the Original Ninfa’s is today). They were congratulating Felix Tijerina on the opening of his second Houston location of Felix Mexican Restaurant, which was at 5821 Kirby (he had previously opened a location in Beaumont as well as his 1st Houston spot). The ad was one of several by vendors and contractors, which included Sanitary Farm Dairies, Dr. Pepper Union Bottling, and Fredrick Poultry and Egg, which featured barrel-breasted northwestern pheasant chicken. So, in all likelihood Ninfa was selling Felix tortillas. In an ad from 1950, both were shown to be supporting Mexican-American civil rights organization L.U.L.A.C. A July 12, 1953, listing showed they were both sponsoring Little League teams that where in the same division. The Rio Grand Tortilla team was 2nd with a 7-4 record and the Felix Restaurant Bulls were 3rd with a 5-6 record (other teams that year included the Canada Dry Cubs, the Sun-Up Ice Cream Dodgers, and the Duncan Coffee Phillies). #houston #houstonfood #houstonhistory #mexicanamericanhistory #foodhistory #texasfoodways #foodwaystexas #foodstagram #instafood #historynerd

This is MAJOR! SHAPE Center is the United Nations of the ‘Hood! 
#repost • @beforeyoushoot Meeting the #unsunghero Activist and organizer Delroy Parker was the highlight of our visit to Houston. He shared wisdom, hospitality and even added our team to the @shapecommunitycenter’s honorable wall of history. Our photo Is posted under the photos of previous guests, Martin Luther King, jr. , Malcom X, and Kwame to name a few. It is UNBELIEVABLE! We officially left our mark in Houston and it’s still surreal. 😩🙌🏾 #Blessed

@shapecommunitycenter celebrates 50 years of improving the quality of life for children, family and the community as a whole. S.H.A.P.E. (Self-Help for African People through Education) was involved with organizing the #millionmanmarch and transporting millions more to Washington DC for families to join the event. They’ve received 450 awards, including the Jefferson Award, the MLK Humanitarian Award, and the UNCF Leadership in the Minority Community Award
