What: Market on the Avenue at West Ave.
Where: West Ave.
The scoop: Guests shopped and snacked their way through the third annual Market on the Avenue at Upper Kirby's West Ave complex. Retailers including Ann Sacks, Bang & Olufsen, Dr. Roth, Flor, Gables Residential, Intero Real Estate, Isle PediSpa, Ligne Roset, milk+honey, Moroso, Poliform, Stash Co and Tootsies showcased goods in pop-up tents while several restaurants provided bites and competed for tops in the running for People’s Choice Award.
Cru, Del Frisco’s Grille, Dolce Bacio Chocolate & Cafe, and Armando’s all served up delicious fare, but it was The Pit Room that diners/voters fancied most. The Montrose ‘cue joint took home first place for its tasty barbecue sliders.
Music by DJ Senega set the lively background as additional vendors, from Citizens for Animal Protection to Weights + Measures bake shop and Briggs True Texas sauces and seasonings, were also in the shopping mix.
