Are you hungry, Cypress? We’re sure you will be when you read—or should we say devour—this issue, the most drool-worthy one of the year: the Foodie issue! We spent the last few weeks pounding the pavement in search of the most delicious bites Cypress has to offer, and we found more than enough material to fill these pages. 

While we don’t like to play favorites, the Foodie issue is near and dear to our hearts. After all, food is not only nourishing to our bodies, but it also brings people together. Whether it’s a special anniversary dinner, a much-needed lunch break with coworkers, a friend’s birthday party or even a casual weeknight meal with family, food is often considered one of life’s great pleasures.

Consider this issue just a peek at all of the mouthwatering options Cypress has to offer. From morning coffee to a sit-down dinner, we’ve got you covered.

Feeling inspired by the pros? Channel your inner chef and grill up a some Texas Roadhouse fall-off-the-bone ribs in your own kitchen! We promise we wouldn’t steer you wrong. Want a tasty drink too? Try a Merry Margarita. See pages XX [Culinary Creations] and XX [Hops & Vine] to get started. If food entertainment is more your style, read about local bakers Liz and Jerry Hale’s appearance on the Food Network on page XX. 

Dig in, Cypress.
