Snow Day!

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.

Clare Leppert and Clementine, the Cavachon. Leigh Leppert and Benny, the Bernedoodle.

HOW DID YOU come together as a team? This fall, we are celebrating the introduction of an exciting real estate collaboration between Clare Leppert, longtime Houston Realtor®, and daughter Leigh Leppert. Clare shared a 20+ year real estate partnership with her mother, Bette Carpenter, until Bette’s death in 2016. Having worked solo for several years, Clare in 2021 was awarded Houston Business Journal’s No. 2 Luxury Realtor® in Houston. Leigh, who has been working in marketing for the past decade, has always shared a passion for real estate and watched Clare successfully balance family and career. We are excited to re-create the next generation of a mother-daughter duo at Compass!

NEW YORK-BASED TENOR Matthew Polenzani, who makes his Houston Grand Opera debut Friday, Jan. 27, singing the title role in Jules Massenet’s three-hankie opera Werther, sounds remarkably pleasant for someone speaking by phone from a car while stuck in Houston’s notorious rush-hour traffic.
