About Bun B
A Grammy-nominated rap legend hailing from Port Arthur, Texas, Bun B rose to prominence in the 90s as one half of the rap duo Underground Kings (UGK), alongside Pimp C.
The King of the Trill has since released a series of chart-topping solo rap albums, debuted a coloring book with Shea Serrano, co-lectured a popular Rice University course, reported as a Vice News correspondent, and has served as a cultural ambassador for the city of Houston.
About Antone’s Famous Po’ Boys
Founded in 1962 as Antone’s Import Co. by Jalal Antone, the original Antone’s market catered primarily to the city’s Syrian and Lebanese immigrants long before generations of Houstonians grew smitten with the restaurant’s unique po’ boys and other delicious dishes.
Four of Antone’s traditional sandwiches are available at approximately 200 grocery outlets throughout Texas (HEB, Randalls, and Kroger), in addition to broader menu items at their two standalone Houston locations on the West Loop and North Loop, and Antone’s grab-and-go kiosks (weekday only) in Greenway Plaza and the Downtown Tunnels.
