Radio Guests for Houston and Austin

Ribeye at the new TQLA in Houston 

HOUSTON Saturdays and Sundays 4-5 p.m., NewsRadio 740 KTRH

A Presentation of Spec’s Wines, Spirits & Finer Foods 

SATURDAY: We check in with a hip new adventure in Southwestern and Modern Mexican dining, a place that keeps its vowels silent as TQLA. This means, and is pronounced, Tequila, of course, and they have a whole bunch of selections behind the bar to go with some really interesting food. Also, in our Grape and Grain segment, we talk and taste our way through the oh-so-dark wines of the southwestern French region of Cahors. 

SUNDAY: Now that Carnival season is officially upon us, we could head for New Orleans. But this year we head for Brazil, by way of a nifty new restaurant in downtown Houston called Samba Grill. Fact is, we never could Samba but we sure can enjoy the South American cuisine served in this fun but sophisticated atmosphere. We also use our Grape and Grain segment to explore a phenomenon that has shown considerable growth in recent years, wine tourism. We know wine tourism can take many forms, from California to Australia to right here in Texas, but we’re in favor of all of them. 

AUSTIN Saturdays 10-11 a.m., Talk 1370
