James Harden’s new restaurant Thirteen Houston in Midtown was open for a select few in the public Tuesday night…
Members of the news media were given a sneak peek at the new high end dining facility located at 1911 Bagby in mid-town Houston.
We were also introduced to Tobias Dorzon. He’s is a former NFL player who transitioned into a professional cook. Dorson will serve as head chef at Thirteen.
We’re told the grand opening is set for March 2nd and Harden is expected to be there even though he no longer calls Houston and the Rockets home.
James Harden is heading to Brooklyn, joining old teammate Kevin Durant and Kyrie Irving to give the Nets a potent trio of the some of the NBA’s highest scorers.
The Nets acquired the three-time scoring champion from the Houston Rockets on Wednesday in a move he has sought for weeks. The trade also involves the Cleveland Cavaliers.
In the trade, the Nets send center Jarrett Allen and forward Taurean Prince to Cleveland, and guard Caris LeVert and forward Rodions Kurucs, as well as three first round draft picks (2022, 2024 and 2026) and four first round pick swaps (2021, 2023, 2025 and 2027) to Houston.
The Rockets also receive guard Dante Exum and a 2022 first round draft pick from Cleveland (via Milwaukee), and Brooklyn acquires a 2024 second round draft pick from the Cavaliers to complete the deal.
The deal will reportedly include a fourth team, the Indiana Pacers, but that aspect of the deal has not been made official yet. Per multiple reports, the Pacers would acquire LeVert and a future second-round pick from the Rockets in exchange for All-Star guard Victor Oladipo.
Congratulations to Tony Buzbee and his wife to be Frances Moody.
Their engagement party was held Saturday night in Memorial at the home of Julie and Brook Brookshire.
Some of the attendees including Buzbee’s best man former Texas Governor Rick Perry, actor Lee Majors aka The Six Million Dollar Man, Frank Spagnoletti, Dr. Vanessa Barrow, and many more.
Tony and Frances will officially tie the knot July 3rd in Galveston, Texas!
Ashton P. Woods with Black Lives Matter Houston says the Constable in Precinct 5 should resign.
This is after an old photo of Constable Ted Heap was released showing him in blackface.
Heap says the photo is nearly 40 years old and he was simply portraying a TV character.
Woods says there is no time limit for those who show signs of racism especially law enforcement officers.
What do you think?
Tropical Depression Fourteen is expected to strengthen into a tropical storm later today and will impact parts of Central America and Mexico before reaching the western Gulf of Mexico, where it faces an uncertain future, but could affect parts of the Texas and Louisiana Gulf Coasts next week.
This system is in the Caribbean Sea, centered less than 50 miles east of Nicaragua and Honduras. It’s located well to the west of Tropical Depression Thirteen, which is a separate system tracking through the Atlantic.
Its initial position is a bit uncertain and an Air Force reconnaissance flight will investigate this system later this morning.
Tropical Depression Fourteen is generating widespread showers and thunderstorms along with gusty winds in the western Caribbean Sea, occasionally wrapping into Jamaica, the Cayman Islands, Honduras and Nicaragua.
Coming Monday on Isiah Factor Uncensored… An exclusive interview with Cyntoia Brown Long and her husband and my good friend J. Long… She talked about life after prison and how she’s trying to make a lasting impact after being freed on the murder charge! #CyntoiaBrown#JLong @j.longjfam
More about Cyntoia:
Cyntoia Brown Long (born January 29, 1988) is an American woman who was convicted of the murder and robbery of Johnny Michael Allen. Brown, who was 16 years old and involuntarily being prostituted at the time of the murder, claimed that Allen had paid her $150 to have sex with him, and that she feared for her life during their encounter, leading her to shoot him. Prosecutors argued that Brown killed Allen while he was sleeping in order to rob him. Brown was found guilty of robbing and murdering Allen and sentenced to life imprisonment.
She would have been eligible for parole at the age of 67. After renewed interest in her case in 2017, Tennessee Governor Bill Haslam commuted her original sentence to 15 years and Brown was released on August 7, 2019. Her story is detailed in the 2011 documentary Me Facing Life: Cyntoia’s Story and in her memoir, Free Cyntoia: My Search for Redemption in the American Prison System.
