At any given moment, Houston can be filled with celebrities. Whether socialites and rappers decide to stop in the Bayou City for the night on the town, or hosting an event, celebrity sightings are never too far off. Last week in Houston, Youtuber's Jake and Logan Paul stopped by for a weekend at Clé, and Trae Tha Truth opened a new boxing gym. Elsewhere, the City of Houston extended WIC benefits until March, and a popular Houston chef is back with an all new concept.
