Donut Miss This Pop-Up!

Donut Miss This Pop-Up!

It may only be Monday, but with the announcement of Dallas-based Fat Straws Bubble Tea Co.’s upcoming pop-ups, we’re already looking forward to the weekend.


Insta-famous for its colorful mochi donuts and bubble tea, Fat Straws will be available in Houston for four days only (11am-4pm on Oct. 17-18 and Oct. 24-25) at 350° Bakery in EaDo. The Japanese “chewy puff” donuts in flavors like pandan-coconut, matcha, cookies-and-cream and passionfruit are available for preorder by the half-dozen until Oct. 15. And for those that miss the preorder window, individual treats are available for walk-up purchase. 350° Bakery is located just behind the George R. Brown Convention Center.

While the pop-ups will tout only the donuts, and not bubble-tea drinks, Fat Straws locations in Dallas tout dozens of innovative beverages with toppings like chesse-foam and chamoy; October’s special is none other than a pumpkin-spice milk tea.

Wiley's 'Judith and Holofernes'

THE ENERGY IN the foyer of the Museum of Fine Arts, Houston’s Caroline Wiess Law Building is quite lively, thanks to the installation of two provocative paintings, painted 400 years apart — one by Artemisia Gentileschi, an Italian 17th-century female artist, the other by Kehinde Wiley, a contemporary, Nigerian-born queer Black artist. Each depicts the grisly climax in the Old Testament Book of Judith, in which the widow Judith decapitates the Assyrian general Holofernes, thus saving her besieged Jewish city of Betulia.
