The Fort Bend Foodie 03/19/14

Ninja Japanese Cuisine 1800 FM 359, Suite 180 Richmond, TX Cuisine: Japanese & Sushi This restaurant came recommended by a few readers. It’s a small place in a strip center near Pecan Grove with a warm family feel inside. The wait staff was very eager to seat me, place a menu in my hands and […]

The Fort Bend Foodie 03/12/14

If you don’t know a lot about wines and price is a consideration, ask the wine steward for assistance.  Remember that they often work on commission and are likely to suggest a rather expensive wine if no guidelines are given.  If no prices are listed and price is a factor, ask about the house wine […]

The Afterburner 03/12/14

By LeaAnne Klentzman   All in; all done: Rosenberg has a new police chief; he was appointed by Council Monday night, and his name is Dallis Warren.

Mardi Gras party festive on Texas Primary Election day

With a piano accordion playing fast tempo along with the sounds of a rub-board adding to the flavor of what is known as “la la” music, Fort Bend’s annual Mardi Gras party couldn’t have been any better.  The tradition on Fat Tuesday taking place locally featured Jabo “The Prince of Zydeco” and his band at a […]

Restaurant étiquette – Gratitude or attitude? One thing sure to send a message about the dining experience of a patron, and probably the most contentious aspect of restaurant etiquette is the tip – otherwise know as gratuity.

The Afterburner 03/05/14

By LeaAnne Klentzman   Drum Roll, please… the announcement is looming.

Friday’s Spaghetti Dinner hosted by the Exchange Club of Sugar Land, at its annual fundraiser, is one of the best parties in Fort Bend.  The head turner this year was the FBISD police department, with officers dressed and performing as the Village People.  They couldn’t help but get the Best Presentation award with their YMCA rendition on […]

The Fort Bend Foodie 02/26/14

On a recent restaurant visit I noticed that perched on every table along the path was at least one cell phone. Almost comical as if it were the “in” thing to do, the white-framed life lines were placed strategically toward the corner of the table being monitored ever so closely for that first blink or […]

The Afterburner 02/26/14

By LeaAnne Klentzman   Up in Flames – If this keeps up the Afterburner broom is gonna have to be scrapped to the wood pile and our Evinrude motor we like to keep for special occasions, gassed up and ready to ride!  Seems anonymous websites are popping up all over the internet and even other local […]

The Afterburner 02/19/14

By LeaAnne Klentzman If we don’t learn from history we are doomed to repeat it – And here it is, not even out of diapers and we find ourselves back in …Kingdom building! We just thought the power mongering of Fort Bend politics took a big hit in the 2012 election with the ouster of […]
