What do a repurposed gay bar, Lynn Wyatt and an exhibition by a beloved Houston artist have in common? It may sound like the beginning of an odd joke, but these were the subjects of the most read stories of 2018 at HoustonCityBook.com.


As the new year gets underway, take a short trip down Memory Lane, to our then-breaking-news story about the new wine-café plans for the old Montrose Mining Company bar, the most clicked-on story of the year; our Leaders & Legends portrait series with Wyatt and other Houston luminaries, a print feature whose digital incarnation ranked second; and, coming in third, our piece by Chris Becker on widely admired painter Francesca Fuchs, 2018 Texas Artist of the Year, as her latest show bowed at Inman Gallery a few months back.

And get ready for another great year of fascinating Houstonians making news at Houston CityBook, in print and online. As we often say, “CityBook is Houston’s magazine.”
