Conventional wisdom tells us if you love what you do, you will never work a day in your life. They also say, if you love where you live, you will never leave. I love where I live!! Living in EADO (East downtown) has given me and my family wonderful opportunities to enjoy local restaurants, coffee shops, breweries, sports bars, etc. all within walking distance. We are also walking distance from PNC Stadium, home of the men’s MLS team, the Houston Dynamo and the women’s NWSL team, the Houston Dash. Not much further and we stumble upon Minute Maid Park and their championship team, the Houston Astros. With quick access to a biking, walking and running trail through the heart of EADO, we are provided endless family enjoyment in many ways.
Some of our local favorites are among some of the best Houston has to offer anywhere. From Nancy’s Hustle, which without question, is both my wife and my favorite Houston dining experience to date, to incredible pizza, pasta and craft drinks at Tiny Champions. East End Backyard offers a phenomenal guest experience, with covered outdoor seating, large screen event viewing and even a dog park. Food trucks and local eateries always participate with East End Backyard, which allows us to try even more local eatery talent. Need coffee and pastries or breakfast tacos, no problem. From Brass Tacks and Koffeteria for coffee, to Brothers Taco, EADO has you covered. Each of these locations get packed and busy, so be prepared to wait, especially for tacos. Lines sometimes stretch out the front door as early as 7am.
EADO was once known as an industrial hub, and shipped products by rail to port daily, as is noticeable with older, and out of date train tracks going directly through the EADO business district. Today, EADO is among one of the most thriving and constantly transitioning areas in all of Houston. We feel honored to live here. Come visit EADO and spend the day. You will be happy you did.
