Fort Bend Food News Special — May 3, 2013

Ok, trying to get back into the swing of things here.  I normally do news on Sundays, but there are a few things coming up this weekend that I wanted to let you know about.

First, Pollo Campero in Katy is hosting Family Fiesta Weekend on May 4-5.  From 11:00 a.m. – 6:00 p.m. both days, adults and children can enjoy family friendly entertainment such as face painting, a bounce house, balloons and more.  There will be special food offers, and each guest will receive a free dessert.  Even better, kids eat for free!  There is no admission charge and the event is open to the public.  Pollo Campero’s Katy location is at 557 South Mason Road.

Also, Cinco de Mayo is this weekend.  All that really means is that folks are looking for an excuse (like we need one!) to eat Tex-Mex and drink margaritas.  Blu is hosting its Cinco de Drinko event on Sunday at 4:00 p.m.  There will be mariachis, crawfish, Latin street food, and Pura Vida frozen margaritas are $5.

Have a great weekend and stay tuned next week for Mother’s Day dining ideas and more about the Sugar Land Wine & Food Affair.

It’s hard to believe that my humble blog is 1 year old!

Thanks to all of you who read the blog, and especially for being patient when I’m not able to post as often as I’d like.  Perhaps most importantly, thank you for sharing the blog with your friends!

I think I shall have some cake.
