In our parent company's continuing spread across the globe, we're happy to welcome Houstonist to the fold. We've heard tell of some sort of barbecue-related rivalry between them and Austinist, and words have been exchanged betweeen them and Chicagoist over baseball, so the intersite rivalry thing is already heating up.

Maybe it's because we're peace, love, and tofu San Francisco hippies, but we can't think of a single reason to hate on Houstonist quite yet. But give it time and we're sure we'll think of something! Until then, why not pop by and say hello?
