Coffee and Rice.

A lot of the local Houston guys know that we host “Ricer Wednesdays” at The Ricebox Food Truck on Westheimer road across the street from The Poison Girl. It’s a weekly get together of cars on the busy streets of Houston at night. Sometimes parking is a workout and the streets themselves can be challenging to navigate through if you’ve never been. This is what separates the hardcore guys from everyone else, and it’s nice to see new faces every week.

What a lot of people don’t know is that we have another day of the week that we all meet up. Sundays at Catalina Coffee on Washington Avenue. Sunday is the one day of the week when all of the Mayday guys are off and if the weather is nice, we will all meet up in the morning on the very unbusy street of Washington Avenue. Some years back, this same street was one of the worst streets to drive down, but about 2.5 years ago, the city of Houston completely repaved the road, and it’s pretty damn flat. When you get all of these ingredients mixed into a bowl of rice, you have a recipe for what we call Coffee & Rice. So if you’re local, like great coffee/cortados/lattes and are free Sunday mornings, you should join us as many others have.

Cars and Coffee.

Cars and coffee. In that order.

You’ll often find the Mayday guys at local cafes such as Catalina Coffee on Washington St. or Blacksmith on Westheimer and Montrose in downtown Houston. Most all of us are heavy coffee drinkers and love local brews and food trucks. So if you’re ever in Houston, and see some ricetastic cars on the street (because our cars usually can’t make it up most driveways), you should pop in and say hello and share a latte or scone with us!

Rain, Rice and Beignets: Thien Le’s Fun and Functional Honda CRX.

When I was a kid, both of my parents were coffee junkies. They used to drink coffee at absurd times of the day like 4am, which now that I think about it, made perfect sense. One saturday morning, my mom came into my room at some ridiculous hour like 4am, and told me to get dressed. We used to take family road trips like many other American families, and for a time, we would visit Louisiana just for kicks. I won’t go into detail about my mom covering my eyes while we walked through the red light district on Bourbon street, but the one thing that stood out to me about New Orleans was my obsession with beignets from Cafe Du Monde in the French Quarter. At the time (many moons ago, trust me), it was the only place that I knew I could get them, so it was a rare treat to get these powdered sugar coated delights. Me and my sisters would hold our breaths as we dived into the pile of beignets as my parents would sit back and enjoy yet another cup of their famous coffee. Before they started selling them in local stores, my parents would buy a bunch of their coffee beans to take back home, but I always wished we could take some beignets instead.

mmmmmm beignets...

B Series = Best Series

So wet (that's what she said)

A race CRX in the French Quarter? Normal.
