Port of Galveston: OOTD
On the eve of Mother's Day, my mom and I prepared to set sail on a cruise to Costa Maya, Roatan, and Cozumel. We were supposed to leave port from Tampa, but my school schedule got in the way, and we decided to sail out of Galveston, Texas. During our short stay in Galveston, we booked The Tremont House for two nights. If you are looking for an upscale hotel during your stay, The Tremont house will probably be your best bet, the only other hotel on the same echelon would be The Hotel Galvez, but they were booked for the duration of our stay.
In Galveston, it was quite difficult to get a general consensus on what was the best restaurant in town. I scoured the internet for an establishment with a good reputation, and even asked the locals for what they recommended. I kept getting referred to the Gyspy Joynt.
My first impression of the establishment was that it was very dive-y, it had the trademark musty smell of many spilled beers. Growing up in New York, I've had some of my most memorable food experiences in the sketchiest joints, so I would never write off a place based on looks alone. I trekked on and ordered a burger, fried jalapeños, and wings in their house-made sauce. I'm sorry to say this, but in this case, the curtains did indeed match the taste. The burger was flavorless, the wings were cold and chewy, and despite the popular belief that frying something equates to tastiness, the fried jalapeños fell short as well. The three individuals I asked for food recommendations, on separate occasions, swore that Gyspy Joynt served the best food in town. The only negative feedback I heard was that there might be a long wait for the food because everything is so fresh. I guess I'll chalk it up to a bad day for business.
Now...I've detailed below what I wore during my short stay in Galveston:
