Kim Son partners up with Kroger
Attention all Kim Son fans! In an effort to help local restaurants sell more meals, Kroger has teamed up with EaDo’s Kim Son restaurant to make their meals accessible to more Houstonians.
Kim Son’s Vietnamese-Chinese food (think chicken spring rolls, chicken fried rice, chicken lo mein, and a teriyaki chicken rice bowl) is available at two locations: West University (5150 Buffalo Speedway) and River Oaks (1938 West Gray Street).
Magpies & Peacocks providing masks where supplies are in high demand
Magpies & Peacocks, the nation’s only 501(c)3 non-profit design house, has been mobilizing their maker/sewing network to create masks for Houston caregivers in the medical and essential services fields. Magpies and Peacocks is asking for donations of $10 or more to help aid in the cost of making masks. Donations can be made here.
EaDo’s Columbia Tap Rail-Trail located on 2300 Walker St. was recently announced as one of KRPC’s top six biking trails in Houston. Remember to enjoy the trail responsibly, by staying at least six feet away from others.
