Houston gay bar lands on health code violation list
By Johnny Trlica, 5/18/2016
During a recent health inspection, JR's Bar and Grill was cited for slime in the ice machine. The popular bar at 808 Pacific was ordered to dispose of 1200 lbs. of ice found not safe for human consumption.
During health inspections, inspectors distribute violations that carry a weight between 1 and 25, increasing in severity. The term "demerit" is used by city health inspectors to describe the weighed value assigned to each violation. The Houston Chronicle obtained the results of routine health inspections throughout the city and tallied each restaurant's demerits for a comprehensive list of violations.
JR's received 6 demerits according to a report by the Houston Chronicle.
The Ensemble Theatre Kicks Off Season Finale with Satchel Paige and the Kansas City Swing
The Ensemble Theatre Kicks Off its 2015-2016 season finale with Satchel Paige and the Kansas City Swing written by Try Ellis and Ricardo Khan, Directed and choreographed by Patdro Harris, and Musical Direction with Original Songs by Carlton Leake.
Kansas City jazz filled nights awakened to cracks of baseball bats as change for Black Americans seemed enticingly close in 1947. Satchel Paige and many other all-stars flourished in Negro League Baseball, many of whom crossed color lines like Jackie Robinson who become the first Black player in modern major-league baseball. This story tells the triumphs and humanity of these players as business men and family men best described in Satchel Paige's quote "Work like you don't need the money. Love like you've never been hurt. Dance like nobody's watching."
Cast members include: Florida artist, Charles Lattimore in the title role as Satchel Paige; and Houston Artists Andre' Neal; Dave Harris; Kendrick Lattimore; Geovanny Acosta; An'tick Von Morphxing; Estee Burks; and Anthony Boggess-Glover.
The show runs through June 5. The Ensemble Theatre is located at 3535 Main Street in Houston. Call 713-520-0055 or visit www.EnsembleHouston.com for more information.
The Ensemble Theatre was founded in 1976 by the late George Hawkins to preserve African American artistic expression and to enlighten, entertain, and enrich a diverse community. Thirty-nine years later, the theatre has evolved from a touring company operating from the trunk of Mr. Hawkins’ car to being one of Houston’s finest historical cultural institutions.

Match.com study lends insight to LGBTQ users
Dating website and app Match released a study Tuesday, which it has dubbed "the largest nationally representative study of American singles who identify as LGBTQ." The study surveyed more than 1,000 LGBTQ singles.
"Today's society is full of rich gender and sexual diversity, however relatively little is known about the dating experiences of LGBTQ people," Match scientific advisor Justin Garcia said in a statement from the dating site.
"Nearly half of the LGBTQ population in America identifies as single, and a vast majority of these singles, some 80 percent, are seeking a committed relationship. By expanding our annual Singles in America study to include more people of diverse identities, including gay, lesbian, bisexual, and transgender Americans, we are beginning to address these knowledge gaps to better understand singles today."
