Welcome to Perfect Party HQ, where we strongly believe eggnog should be on grocery shelves year-round, and that dumping pumpkin spice all over everything is unacceptable. Hear us, H-E-B! Now. Where were we? Oh, yes, our informal holiday gathering for six.
It’s a little-known fact that if you get bitten by a copperhead, there’s always a place for you at our table; hence the invitation for KTRK anchor Art Rascon. Also automatically in: any Houston Rocket who shoots baskets granny-style (Chinanu Onuaku), sixth-graders who both appear on Chopped Junior and start cooking schools (Memorial’s Kate Daniel), Houston reality-TV royalty (Cindi Rose of oh-boy-it’s-finally-here Married to Medicine), dearly departed Texans who nevertheless have new makeup lines (we love you always, Selena), and any and all African American women doctors blocked from assisting sick passengers by flight crews who can’t fathom that an African American woman might, in fact, be an actual doctor (Tamika Cross, obstetrician and gynecologist at UTHealth).
And with that, we bid 2016 adieu.
