What’d We Miss: 6.26.11 Weekly Reader
Mark another one in the books, folks. We’re one week closer to nothing in particular. But the real question is, “what did you miss?” We’re not really sure. That’s what this column is all about: A one-stop resource to everything The Loop Scoop had to offer last week.

Houston Sports Franchise: A Bit Rank by Paul
Paul dipped into his bag of sports-reporting tricks on Monday last week. He came across a blog post on Chron.com upset about the lack of respect that Houston teams received from ESPN. What respect has been earned? That’s the real question.
Eatsie Boys: Houston Hot Sauce Committee by Paul
Parked outside of his favorite coffee shop, Paul takes advantage at one of Houston’s popular food trucks. A Philly cheesesteak with home made Cheez Whiz, some Pork Snuggies, it’s good food and it’s at your finger tips (if you know where to find them). Check out Eatsie Boys when you can.
Staff Notes and Photos: Concert Catch-Up by Paul
We waited entirely too long to get up the photos of The Wheeler Brothers, The Bright Light Social Hour and Heartless Bastards. What we lacked in punctuality, we made up for in breadth of photo essay. Check them out and add your own commentary down below.
The Houston Dynamo: Bright Orange Under Blue Sky by Richard
It’s not a Houston publication without a record of the experience had at our MLS team’s game. Richard checked out the Houston Dynamo at Robertson Stadium last week. The team might have lost, but we’re all allowed bad days. The rest of the experience lived up to the hype, though.
Texas! the Exhibition: Of Cannonade and Sword Clashes by Zach
We minted a new writer last week. Zach made his first trip in the name of The Loop Scoop to Houston Museum of Natural Science. On display they have some artifacts of the birth of Texas. That’s history. That’s good stuff.
Street Art of the Week: What Does it Mean?
Artist Unknown. Location Unknown. A contributing photographer takes this shot of one of Houston’s “new” street artists and offers it to you. We’re assuming he/she is new since we don’t have any idea who it is.
Where’s Pauldo (ep. 69)
SOLVED!! (and, amazingly, not by Phong)
H-Town Showdown: #4 Rodeo Cook-Off vs. #5 Blondes vs. Brunettes
A Houston institutions versus one in the making. Who are you going to vote for when it comes down to BBQ and a charity event. I bet you’re going to feel guilty either way. Maybe.
Photo of the Week: Texas Redfish at Pappadeux
Food photography is kind of our thing lately. It makes sense that we would choose this photo by Pixeltopia highlighting one of our great Houston chains. He claims this is one of the best dishes he’s ever eaten. Can you one-up him?
Listomania: Top Ten Nuptials No-Nos by Tea Jones
Mr. Jones just said his I dos (with a lady, no less) and he’s been getting a barrage of cliches thrown his way. Here are his Top Ten Least Favorite. Is that an oxymoron? Probably, but we don’t care.
Drinking Made Easy: Houston by Marc
After catching an episode on TV, Marc decided it would be best to create a Houston edition of the little-known show. He picks his four places he would definitely send Zane Lamprey to if he were ever to hit the Bayou City. Do you have any additions?
