Houston's Top 10 Bars Open Christmas Day
As our sister blog Eating...Our Words does, from time to time Rocks Off will be giving your our picks for the top taverns in various Houston-area neighborhoods. Of course, the lines can be porous, but here anything with a TABC license that cannot reasonably be considered either a restaurant, coffeehouse or live-music venue is fair game.
10. RA SUSHI
RA is technically a sushi bar, but anyone who has headed up the stairs knows it's basically an escalator to sake heaven -- especially at happy-hour prices. Luckily for you, it opens at 4 p.m. Christmas Day so you can indulge in one of those naughty fishbowls. Don't worry, you have 364 days before next Christmas to be nice.

9. THE GINGER MAN PUB
Ginger Man's "Pint Night" is happening this Christmas, so we encourage you to put down the mashed potatoes and indulge in some healthier carbs -- beer! You really can't go wrong with a festive Christmas ale on Christmas day at Ginger Man, now can you?

Outer-loopers, listen up. Coaches is open on Christmas, helping you get into the post-family holiday spirit, the with a little thing called Christmas Shots. Although we don't know exactly what those are, we like to imagine them topped with sugarplums.
