ON OUR RADAR Molina’s Turns 75 Happy Birthday to a Houston institution! Molina’s Cantina, Houston’s oldest family-owned and operated Tex-Mex restaurant, is celebrating its 75th anniversary. While many of Houston’s long-time Mexican restaurants have faded over the years, Molina’s continues to maintain a consistently high standard of taste and service along with a long-standing base of loyal fans. “We thank those who have supported us over the years – our guests, our staff and our vendors –who truly are our extended family,” says Ricardo Molina who, along with brothers Raul III and Roberto, represents the third generation to own and operate the family restaurant. Join the anniversary party at any of Molina’s three locations: 7901 Westheimer Road, 3801 Bellaire Boulevard and 4720 Washington Avenue. www.molinascantina.com Dressing Up The City Scenic Houston’s Annual Dinner on Wednesday, October 26, begins with a spectacular reception under the stars at Houston Country Club.
