Happy New Year!
Well, it’s finally here…the 51st Super Bowl. And the A to Z Issue.
I have to admit that when we rst decided that the entire January issue was going to be about the game and all the prep and activities around it, I wasn’t 100% enthusiastic. I didn’t think we could ll an entire magazine with Super Bowl stories. But guess what? We did. And I think this issue is really great.
It’s particularly great due to our guest contributors – broadcasting pros and longtime sports anchors LISA MALOSKY and BUTCH ALSANDOR, and also because of the incredible effort the Super Bowl Host Committee (led by RIC CAMPO and yes, he’s in this issue, too) put into creating a high-energy, multifaceted, multilocation environment for visitors and Houstonians alike. They’re expecting more than one million people to visit Super Bowl LIVE at Discovery Green over the course of Super Bowl week. Fun fact: That’s double the attendance of last year’s fan fest in San Francisco.
Also in this issue: Texans GM RICK SMITH, radio host DEVI BROWN, movie maven SARAH GISH and all the latest community, art, food and style news. Plus, JANICE SCHINDELER takes us to Arthur Ave, JAYME LAMM takes us back in time to Houston’s past Super Bowl hostings, MIKE COOK exposes The Secret Group, BRIAN TAGTMEIER dines around the town and CARLA VALENCIA goes to a new all-inclusive luxury resort in Cabo.
Thank you to our team of writers and photographers for, once again, showing the best of Houston from A to Z.
