I always look at the new year as a blank canvas. A brand-new, empty calendar for me to start anew. A clean slate and another chance to fulfill my dreams, be a better version of me. And now you are holding a better version of us in your hands.
We are now Local, a name that truly embraces who we are and what we have been doing for the past 16 years. We have loved this city since day one and have nurtured its food scene, the arts, our community and its culture. We take pride in what we do and love to share it with you. We are bursting with local talent, from the names you recognize to the ones you’ve never seen because they are unknown.
For this inaugural issue we share Houston A to Z, an A to Z guide of discoveries in town from food, people, art, medicine, music, fashion and more. We can’t stop staring at our cover which is a piece by local photographer Peter Molick from his highly anticipated exhibit Houston Crossings slated to open in spring 2015.
We look forward to sharing more gems, hidden secrets, things known and unknown with you in 2015. Thank you for being a part of our journey, and I hope you invite us on yours.
