Let Mobile Apps Drive Local Business

Local customers aren’t going to the mobile space, they are already there. If your business doesn’t have a website, an up-to-date Yelp account and a utilized Facebook page, you’re missing out on potential business.

Theater in Southeast Texas: Drama versus Comedy

This week, I had an exciting opportunity to examine the theater habits of Southeast Texans.

Ok, maybe that doesn’t sound exciting to most people, but the article had a marketing angle, and the piece would run in the Sunday edition of the Beaumont Enterprise as the cover story of the Entertainment section. Plus, I like defending the untapped cultural aspirations of locals. I think we can handle a lot more than is thrown at us.

But after conversations with representatives of the Beaumont Community Players, the Lutcher Theater in Orange, and Ad Hoc Beaumont, it was my own theater habits that I found under my microscope.

I Made a Thing

For the past few weeks, I’ve been compiling something that’s been on my mind since the first day I moved to Beaumont: happy hours.

A Love Letter to Texas Tech Football

I thought I could easily live in Beaumont since I lasted four years in Lubbock, Texas. While I’ve traded high winds for hurricanes and red dirt for cockroaches without too much protest, there’s one hole left in my life: college football.

In Defense of Beaumont

As a former Austinite and reluctant Beaumont immigrant, I never thought I’d write this blog. I’m one month away from my third year living in Beaumont, Texas, and it is time for Beaumont to start loving itself.

St. Arnold: Revisited

If I’m going to eat my own words, I might as well publish the process. After three years in Beaumont, I am officially a St. Arnold convert. The other day, I found myself monologue-ing on the merits of touring the St. Arnold brewery, salivating over their Oktoberfest, and expressing genuine dismay over someone who doesn’t “get” St. Arnold.

So, in other words, I’ve turned a complete 180 since this blog.

My Favorite Place to Buy Beer

Next week is American Craft Beer Week, and in anticipation I thought I’d highlight my favorite local liquor store: Miller’s Liquor.

The Reality of Charity and Geckos

The other day, as I pulled out of my apartment complex, I noticed something moving on my windshield. Suddenly, a little green face poked out from between my windshield wipers. It was a gecko, who had taken a sun nap on the hood of my car, only to be rudely awakened by his bed accelerating to 60 miles per hour.

Give your mind a joyous vacation.

“Give your mind a joyous vacation,” a friend said to me over drinks recently.

At that moment, I sat in a funk, unable to catch the bartender’s attention to exchange my currency for an ice cold beer. A friend walked over, ordered my drink, and sat across from me.

The Dylan’s Vortex

Read the Review: Dylan’s on 9th, Nederland bar

This week, I tried something different with my bar profiles. Instead of writing the story following a pre-set format, I branched out and wrote the review like a straight blog/article. Not only is this less time-consuming, but I think it streamlines my writing and allows me to tell a story rather than write a review.
