IT'S ALREADY ONE of Houston’s favorite restaurants, but when very pink PostScript held it’s official, invitation-only grand opening — sharing the occasion with supporters of the American Cancer Society’s Men Wear Pink — some 200 rosy-hued VIPs turned out to mark the moment.

“The crisp summer night set the perfect stage, with a pink Porsche 911 GT3 Ruby Star and Porsche 911 GT3 RS Ultraviolet parked in front of PostScript, creating a popular photo opportunity for attendees,” said a rep for the restaurant. “Adding to the charm, PostScript rolled out a pink carpet leading into the venue.”

In an evening full of fun surprises, guests enjoyed the stylings of live saxophonist Alex Jones as they entered the party. There was also a cigar-rolling station, casino-style gaming in the chic Vesper Room, and free-flowing prosecco — and PostScript’s signature cocktails such as the Take Me to Tootsies were on offers. Some of famous chef Bryan Caswell’s nibbles made the rounds, as in tuna handkerchiefs and shrimp salad spoons.

“The highlight of the private dining experience was Caswell’s signature caviar donut,” noted the rep, “made with a house donut, Hackleback caviar, white chocolate creme fraiche, and blackberries.”

At 8pm, PostScript shifted to a working restaurant, sharing proceeds from the beautiful evening’s dinner till with the American Cancer Society.

“Partnering with American Cancer Society was an easy choice,” said PostScript owner Veeral Rathod. “This event not only brought together our community but also supported a cause that is close to our hearts. It's truly inspiring to see the generosity and enthusiasm of our guests as we work together to make a meaningful impact in the fight against cancer.”

With Expertise in Blondes, Extensions and More, the Janelle Alexis Team Is a Go-To Salon

YOU CAN'T LIMIT Janelle to one title – Hairdresser. Her career and business has been established and built on a strong foundation. Using her two business degrees + one more in-process, this enables Janelle and the team to deliver not only a customer-focused experience, but a foundationally solid business. There is much more than meets the eye, and in sharing a little bit about Janelle, she was not only an international hair extension educator for over 14 years, but brings extensive expertise to blondes. She rounds this out with her previously launched namesake cosmetic line, which is a perfect complement to her belief that “Beauty is our Business”.

AS WE PRODUCE our second annual “Cool 100” list, we’re reminded of our thoughts as we debuted this feature last year. We acknowledged that deciding who and what is cool is not only a moving target but also entirely subjective. And that attempting to “rank” the coolest people in Houston is a fool’s errand, one that will leave us immediately open to criticism. “You think she is cooler than him? You included this person?! You left off that one!?"
