In this interview, Sparrow Bar & Cookshop owner Monica Pope discusses the obstacles she's overcome as both a gay chef and a female chef, the way Houston has changed and more. Instead, here's a quote about how people's reactions to "Beaver's" as a restaurant name:

Uh, if you can do Hooters, I can do Beaver's. So I noticed they — not just as a gay woman, but as a woman, as a chef — don't tell me I can't do something. And again, not trying to be disrespectful to anybody, or disparaging, it's just like, we're just having fun, this is a community piece.
