If there's one thing we have a sweet spot for, it's definitely sweet desserts. From loaded milkshakes and dough cones to sugary binguses, our dentists aren't too happy. But gosh darn it, we are. Speaking of, we've spotted another sugary sweet spot that is living up to our giant standards — Blue Ocean Smoothies in Houston.
This shop has is an oversized-dessert wonderland. Their Beso De Angel, Pina Maravilla, Pina Maravilla, and Mega Sandía are, well, definitely mega to say the least.
They serve smoothies, juices, ice cream, crepes and even some savory options like their Hot Cheeto Sandwich and Tostilocos—that you eat straight out of a Tostitos bag.
For crepes, they offer tons of options from Nutella to Dulce de Leche to Mazapan.
But they also have unshareable sizes that you can order as a compromise with your dentist. Try out the Dulce Fresa, Raspa De Leche Con Coco, Fresa y Banana Con Nieve.
But why go small when you can get the Jarrita Unicornio drink with full-on unicorn vibes. Ah, yeah.
You can even get fun, loaded drinks that are a little bit smaller. Like this one, the Kids Raspa Sorpresa.
And lucky for us, Blue Ocean Smoothies has two locations in Houston — a Cypress Creek Parkway location and an Airline Drive location.
Both locations are open Monday through Friday from 10 a.m. to 10 p.m. and weekends until 11 p.m.
"We do not at present know the full significance of this variant, but it has a combination of mutations similar to other internationally notifiable variants of concern," said GHRC Chief Virologist Ben Neuman, "This variant combines genetic markers separately associated with rapid spread, severe disease and high resistance to neutralizing antibodies."
The carrier, a student at Texas A&M, tested positive for COVID-19 on March 5 and eventually tested positive again on the 25th, indicating to scientists that the variant may cause a longer-lasting for people aged 18-24 infection than the typical virus.
At the ribbon-cutting ceremony, Davis recognized Floyd as a "guiding light" in his community, and wanted his mural placed in front of this high school to "inspire students and give a voice to the struggle for social justice in Houston and the world."
The mural was commissioned by Harris County Commissioner Rodney Ellis, the Houston Society for Change, and 88 C.H.U.M.P., a non-profit social activism organization created by Floyd’s football teammates.
George Floyd, 46, died in May 2020 after a Minneapolis police officer knelt on his neck for 8-minutes as Floyd pleaded he couldn't breathe.
The technology-fueled experience will take you through 40 different galaxies (galleries) complete with aliens, artificial intelligence, gamification, and dazzling displays of sound, light, colors and natural elements.
The exhibits are brought to life by the power of over 9 million LED lights, 111 projectors and 65 incredibly talented artists and craftspeople.

Of course, Seismique is enforcing numerous precautions in order to make the experience pandemic-friendly, including mandatory mask requirements, limited capacity, temperature checks and timed ticketing.
