Join acclaimed Houston Chefs Ryan Hildebrand & Pat Sommers of Triniti on Sunday, September 25th from 11am-3pm for a fabulous tour of the amazing markets along Airline Drive. If you have never been, you are missing out. It can be overwhelming, so having these two show us around, is awesome. The sites and sounds of the area are quite the experience. We will likely taste a few things we have never heard of before. We will sample & shop in some of the markets and eat in some of the area's "not to miss" restaurants. Wear comfy shoes and pants on this one folks.
The exact details & restaurant destinations will be kept secret until you arrive. Please arrive at Central Market's just inside the front doors 15 minutes before tour time. That is where you will be given your awesome swag bags and an agenda/tour list. Your swag bags are filled with awesome H-Town goodies from Visit Houston and tour theme swag from our sponsor Central Market, magazine from My Table Magazine & The Wave. We welcome you to stop in before or after to grab a coffee or wine. We will provide water & beer from our sponsor Saint Arnold's Brewery. Transportation & tour brought to you in partnership with The Wave. For questions about other tour options, please contact us.
