From splash pads to popsicles, Houstonians have no shortage of favorite ways to cool off on these hot summer days. One that should go to the top of your list? The new shaved-ice stand at Bebidas, Houston’s only snowball purveyor inside the Loop.


The menu boasts slightly fancified and trendy versions of traditional snow cones, with Cali-sourced organic syrups — watermelon, lavender, chocolate-peanut-butter — and “snowcap” toppings of condensed milk or chamoy. Houston-based Malk Organics also supplies milk-alternative floaters, including cashew and maple-pecan milks.

Adding to the charm is how customers order — at a walk-up window near the colorful, canopied garden area. And with prices starting at $3.50, Bebidas’ snowballs are one hot way to chill out this summer.

Thrive + Inspire: ‘High Level of Connectivity’ Key at Baldwin’s Boulevard Realty

AN INTERVIEW WITH Bill Baldwin, Owner & Broker at Boulevard Realty

What were your biggest challenges of 2020? My single biggest challenge in 2020 was staying positive. I consider myself a very positive person in general, but 2020 really put that to the test. Nevertheless, I chose early on that I would strive to take the positive route. We get a chance to see the upside or the downside of any situation, and I made a concerted effort in 2020 to see the upside. I started the pandemic with a virtual talk on "the glass half full" and I chose to continue seeing the glass as half full throughout the rest of 2020 and now into 2021.
