It's baaaaack! It's been nearly 2 years since the success of the original Outstanding in My Backyard, more affectionately referred to as OIMBY. Spearheaded by Houston food community leaders David Leftwich and Tara Kelly, along with a slew of Twitterati, local chefs, and participating restaurants, OIMBY began as an effort to provide a local, cost-conscious alternative to the popular national community table dinner Outstanding in the Field. Read up on the origins of OIMBY and the 2010 event here.
This summer, Chef Monica Pope, with the help of David and Tara, welcomes the return of OIMBY in her own backyard. Sundays in June and July, Monica invites guests into her backyard for a communal dining experience at her table. Food and drinks provided, all you bring is your own plate and some good conversation! Look for weekly menu updates, special guest appearances, and local faire. For more information call 713.524.6922. RSVP is required.
