When the ladies of Urban Swank – founders Felice Sloan and Shanna Jones – call, we answer. So we were thrilled when they invited My Table magazine to co-sponsor an upcoming event that will be a great value as well as a fun Saturday escape for Houstonians stuck in town for the summer.

Summer in the City is a four-stop tour of four restaurants in Houston. Each stop focuses on a special menu item and cocktail that evokes the culinary flavors and atmosphere of one of four international cities. Tickets are $125 each, swag bags included!

The tour kicks off on Saturday, July 15, 2017, at 3:30 pm. Summer in the City guests will rendezvous at the Royal Sonesta Hotel. There a New Orleans-accented bites-and-sips tasting will be followed by a short party-bus ride to Le Colonial, for stop number two where the group will sample the flavors of Saigon. The third stop is at Salt Air, where Mexico City meets the plate along with a cocktail. And, finally, the fourth stop brings revelers to La Table where a decadent Parisian food-and-drink pairing awaits.

The party bus will take guests back to the Royal Sonesta where the tour started and after-dinner libations await. The evening is expected to conclude around 8:30 pm.
