On June 27th, Greater Houston Elites were invited to explore Boardwalk at Towne Lake, a growing waterfront development offering dining, nightlife, retail, fitness and family-fun in Cypress, Texas. At this passport-style event, Elites grabbed their passports from Massage Heights, then embarked on a restaurant-hopping journey to savor light bites, beverages and meet the local biz owners. Check out the event reviews and 200+ event photos that tell the tale of this special passport experience. Big thank you to our #BoardwalkTL hosts and sponsors:

Massage Heights was the first stop of the evening, where Elites grabbed their “palate passports” and entered in for a drawing. Two lucky winners walked away with gift cards to the massage spa.
Burgerim treated Elites to a private room tasting with burgers, wings, sides, beer and wine. Franchise owner Willie Linares and his staff pulled out all the stops, sampling off various burgers: Beef Chorizo, Dry Aged Beef, Turkey and Salmon – just to name a few!
The Cheese Bar owners Melissa and Troy Boyce greeted Elites with samples of their award-winning mac and cheese paired with wines. Their mac and cheese was voted #1 in the Best Mac and Cheese competition at the Houston Cheesefest in 2016.
The Flying Vine Wine Bar & Bistro offered a beautiful spread of their famous Southern Country meets NOLA fare. Elites entered into their private dining room and noshed over a charcuterie board, sipped on wine and sampled their Basil Bee’s Sting craft cocktail. Shortly after, tastings of their popular Shrimp & Grits, Tuna Tataki, and Fried Green Tomatoes were passed around as Chef Brian and owner LeaErin Hurley mingled with Elites.
Jaxton’s Bistro previewed some of their latest menu items to be added to their revamped menu (c0ming soon!). Chef Micah’s tasting trio included Gulf Coast Cobia, Three Times Ribs, and Tex-Mex Dumplings served front and center at the chef’s table all encompassed by a modern yet rustic setting.
Custom pizza, crazy fast. MOD – the create your own custom pizza modern eatery – featured a spread of their popular ‘zas. Most importantly, the MOD team featured one of their partnership pizzas – The Isaac, a pizza that shines light and special awareness to teen suicide.
Specializing in the hibachi and teppanyaki style of cooking, Taisho offered Elites with an unforgettable, authentic, Japanese cuisine experience – from sushi rolls, stir fry and noodle dishes, and even some non-rice variations of rolls for our low-carb Yelpers. Elites also imbibed plum wine and specialty cocktail Tokyo Sunrise.
