In a fortuitous turn of events, a lovely little Indian restaurant has opened in Mid County. Venya’s Kitchen: Modern Indian Cuisine on 27th is just what the doctor ordered. Our recommendation? Clear your calendar and order everything! The spicy (if you like that!), smokey, sweet and savory flavors are all there. The gracious, family oriented service experience is there. And no matter where you are in Mid or South County, they are right down the road! To put it simply, we are eternally grateful for nearby quality Indian food. Yes!
Pack your bags for Port Arthur’s Cultural Heritage Showcase, Saturday October 14th. This inaugural event will feature more than 25 countries and their traditional music with live performances, entertainment and small bites.
Wear your heritage dress and share your culture at this FREE event, Saturday October 14th from 1-5pm at the Bob Bowers Civic Center in Port Arthur. #loveportarthurtx
We can`t believe it`s been a week. Our hearts are full. We just wanted to thank each and every one of you who attended our Official Cajun Capital of Texas Celebration Party last Thursday at the Museum of the Gulf Coast.

This is just the beginning!
We’re kicking it off at 4pm with David Varnado, Jude Moreau, Donovan Bourque and Brandon Ledet. 🎻

Happy Friday! Here’s a photo we used for many years to promote Port Arthur. It was taken in 2006 of the Martin Luther King Bridge from Pleasure Island looking toward Port Arthur. If you didn’t know any better, you’d think the twinkle lights in the distance were the glow of what must be Port Arthur’s snazzy downtown skyline. But, it’s actually Valero Energy Corp. It’s true a picture is worth a thousand words, but maybe they aren’t always true ones? We’re still Big City in our minds. We can’t remember who took this gem. If you do, let us know! #loveportarthurtx
We know that Barbie is all the rage right now, but have you seen this AWESOME production of “Beauty & The Beast” at Port Arthur Little Theater? The casts are so talented, the story is so wonderful and we couldn’t recommend it more! 🥀
