IT’S THAT TIME AGAIN FOLKS. Game time that is!

The last time I remember being in Houston for something this major was in 2013 for the All-Star game! Does anyone else remember that like it was yesterday? I legit can tell you every party, outfit, and restaurant I was involved in that weekend and wow was it a good one. My favorite memory being my dad dressing up in his Tom Ford tux to act as a chauffeur in his Audi 8L which led to me and my friends stumbling into Michael Jordan’s 50th birthday party. Yes, you read that right MJ lol!

With the excitement of Super Bowl LI rolling on in, I wanted to create a guide for not only people coming in from out of town, but for Houstonians to remember what all our city has to offer during this week of cashy fun.

Here’s my quick take on the best places to brunch, booze, din, shop and party in Houston. And if I were you, I would get to Yelp’n ! Also, sign up for my newsletter to see which events Common Polished will be attending for Super Bowl LI!
