– Following her Saturday night performance at Houston’s NRG Stadium, Beyonce, Jay-Z, and Tina Knowles dined at BB’s Cafe on Richmond. Scope out video of Beyonce’s appearance, complete with a lemon-print sweatshirt, on Instagram.

– Facing noise and accessibility complaints, the Houston Chronicle reports that Raven Tower at White Oak Music Hall has been forced to temporarily shutter. Developers have already begun construction on improvements to the space, and the bar area will remain open during the upgrades, expected to be finished this summer.

Malawi’s Pizza, a Utah-based, socially conscious pizza chain, has announced plans to open more than twenty Houston-area locations in the coming months. Locations in Sienna Plantation and Midtown are already in the works for the chain that donates a meal to children in need for each pizza sold.

– After hearing the news that Habanera & The Gringo may be forced to change their name after receiving a cease and desist letter from Gringo’s Mexican Kitchen, some enterprising diners have started a petition to urge Gringo’s parent company to drop the legal challenge. The petition has already collected more than 400 signatures.
