Local Business Spotlight

We love highlighting the local businesses that make our great city unique! Since opening its doors, Wooster’s Garden has become a Midtown staple, not only for its incredible selection of cocktails, but also for its warm, inviting atmosphere.

Whether lounging inside or on the patio, guests can enjoy the elegant, spacious design fit for parties of all sizes. As the weather warms up, you’ll find more and more food trucks lining the street on Sundays in case you’re ready for a treat while you drink.

Their drink menu more than 49 brews on tap as well as an impressive offering of craft beer. However, the real star is their carefully-concocted craft cocktails, each offering a different flavor profile. We recommend the “Cloud Nine” (gin, peach liqueur, lemon, violette, maraschino) or the “Vanilla Punch” (Cognac, lemon, lime, vanilla, and pineapple.)

More Things to Do in Houston

As always, we love supporting other influencers here in Houston! This week, we’re sending lots of love to Spoiled Latina and its founder & owner, Yvonne!

Yvonne launched Spoiled Latina to empower and inspire women to engage in more self-care without guilt or shame! Since launching over 10 years ago, the Spoiled Latina brand has expanded to include some of the best self-care activities and brands available in the city. In 2019 she launched “Spoiled Latina Day,” dedicated to sharing her mission with women of all ages!

Each day and in different ways, Yvonne shows us how to embrace holistic self-care! 

Show Yvonne some love and let her know StufftoDoinHouston sent you!
