In Houston, we have experienced our fair share of pub crawls, but there's one drink we haven't gotten to crawl for, and that's coffee.

Missouri-based boutique marketing company The LAB created Caffeine Crawl in 2011. The event spread through the country, reaching a variety of cities (Kansas City, Denver, and Springfield, Missouri) in 2012, followed by Boston and San Francisco in 2013. Now The LAB's Caffeine Crawl is coming to Houston on Saturday, February 22, and will showcase the incredible talents of seven coffee shops: Boomtown Coffee, Blacksmith Coffee Bar, Southside Espresso, Double Trouble Caffeine & Cocktails, Catalina Coffee, Eatsie Boys Cafe and Paper Co.
Unfortunately, tickets are sold out, but there is a waiting list for any no-shows.
LAB team member Emily McIntyre explains that InterAmerican Coffee, a sponsor for this event, reached out to The LAB to shine the light on coffee offerings in Houston.
"So that was our initial awareness of Houston's coffee scene, but we have been fans for a while," McIntyre says. "And visiting and enjoying the coffee shops and talking with people, we feel that Houston is a city that deserves attention. It has a strong coffee/specialty beverage culture that deserves recognition."More »
