The third annual Dive-in Movie night at Bellaire Town Square Aquatic Family Center last night was a hit, just like the movie The Pirates of the Caribbean that played as kids and even some parents floated around the giant pool on inflatable pool noodles. Families from Bellaire and other areas lined up outside and when 7:30 p.m. rolled around and …

Elisa and Alex both decided to go to Midwest colleges, trading Houston’s high humidity for wind speeds and hurricanes for blizzards.

1. Frozen Lemonade
If the kids’ lemonade stands in your neighborhood just aren’t cutting it (bless their hearts), go to this lemonade stand 2.0. It is Bambolino’s, and it is an oasis found at 1525 Westheimer Road near Montrose. Large cups of frozen lemonade, the sweet nectar given to Houstonians as a blessing for braving the heat to even leave …

One of my favorite parts of living in Bellaire is the annual Fourth of July parade. As a kid, I used to participate. My great uncle has a collection of older cars, including my personal favorite, a 1959 red T-Bird, and, along with my cousins and sister, we would ride in the cars and throw candy to the crowds in …

1. You spend all your free time in Meyerland Plaza…
…but watching people get their ears pierced at Claire’s always terrifies you. And you miss having three Starbucks Coffee outlets within a mile radius.
2. You know what someone means when they say they live on the “a-b-c” streets
…but you’re forever confused why “Jolen” isn’t “Golen”
3. You spend …

Welcome to An Intern’s Insight, a summer blog appearing here on Buzzworthy.
This is where our interns will share slices of Houston as seen through college-student eyes.
Already, they’re discovering what their hometown means to them now that they’re gone (or almost gone, in the case of Alex).
But first, let’s let them introduce themselves.

aka “Sorry, United. American got us drunk.”
About three weeks before the annual SXSW (South by Southwest) Interactive conference in Austin, I still was not sure why, but I really, really wanted to go. I had always been so curious about it, and the timing was perfect — it’s the first year our nest is empty, and neither of our …

We had a blast last year at the Houston Livestock Show and Rodeo’s Wine Garden (pictured here), when the band different Beast, featuring Buzz contributing photographer Michael Hart on bass, rocked the house. It’s hard to believe a year has passed already. But the Houston Livestock Show and Rodeo is here!
It will run through March 17, with the World …

In our cover story this month, we visit with Buzz-area residents who remain faithful fans of their college football teams, no matter how long ago they were students on campus.
One couple, Bryan Athon and Lauren, even keep a spreadsheet of Texas Christian University games so they can attend as many as possible.
Just in case you need fodder …

Perhaps you are a parent of a college student, and you’ve just realized, perhaps with some shock, that your child can vote Nov. 6 in the presidential election.
The next question is how and where.
Do students vote at college or in their hometown?
It’s their choice. They can vote in whatever district they consider to be “home,” whether it’s …

Yes, we know. The headline on our September cover story was grammatically incorrect. We knew it when we ran it.
The story was about local rescued animals and how they have “rescued” their new owners in return.
Readers seem to love the story, and we’ve gotten great feedback.
We’ve gotten even more feedback about our headline – and that feedback …

This month, our September cover story, Who Rescued Who?, features stories of local residents who say their rescued pets rescued them back.

The annual Bellaire Independence Day Parade and Festival was a hit! People of all ages dressed in red, white and blue and lined the streets of Bellaire waving flags to show off their patriotism.
