FROM KIM: It’s o•cially craw–sh season! These tiny lobster-like creatures, also referred to as mudbugs, live in freshwater like marshes and rivers. This time of year, you can –nd numerous craw–sh festivals all over Texas to celebrate these slightly salty, slightly sweet crustaceans. Located in Humble, check out our dining feature this month, Juicy Heads & Spicy Tails, which serves up Cajun dishes including craw–sh. We’ve even included a step-by- step guide on how to eat these tasty mudbugs (see Page 10). Kim Giannetti, GENERAL MANAGER

CORRECTION: Volume 7, Issue 9 On Page 12, the address for Firecraft BBQ was incorrectly listed as 2665 Royal Forest Drive, Ste. 810, Kingwood. The correct address is 2665 Royal Forest Drive, Ste. B10, Kingwood. FROM HANNAH: When the COVID-19 pandemic –rst hit the Greater Houston area in 2020, air travel slowed resulting in employment at airports nationwide plummeting, including at George Bush Intercontinental Airport. Three years later, however, air travel has picked back up along with employment locally, and IAH o•cials are moving full-steam ahead with its $1.36 billion International Terminal Redevelopment Program. To learn more about the latest happenings at IAH, see our front-page story which continues on Page 15. Hannah Brol, EDITOR
