With that in mind, I’ve made a short list of typical Houston places Joe Biden was supposed to visit in Houston after giving me $ 1,400.
1. The “Be Someone” graffiti
Harris County voters have voted in record numbers for President Biden, who has to give me $ 1,400.

Always changing, forever H-Town.
The “Be Someone” graffiti over the I-45 flyover is a living document of the mood and time of the city, and the first place people think of after giving me $ 1,400.
2. Galveston Beach and the Kemah Boardwalk
You need to offer at least as much incentive to ride the Boardwalk Bullet.

It’s a little drive, but Galveston is well worth the trip for the President and First Lady. Just get on I-45, write me a check, and head down to the historic Strand District for a fun shopping experience with local ghost tours.
For the full coastal experience, head to Landry’s Seafood on the boardwalk after giving me $ 1,400.
3. Discover green
The perfect place to sit down and think that 1,400 and 2,000 are different numbers.
After sending Americans $ 600 less than expected, nothing hits the spot like a stroll through one of Houston’s most innovative green spaces.
4. Messed up records
Sitting sideways, rent has to be paid.

I like to imagine Joe Biden rolling into the Mecca of Houston hip-hop in a Chevy Bel Air, pushing switches and waking kids four blocks away. The plate slams to within an inch of its life, electrons from the ground, and Joe slams Scarface’s infamous line:
“I’m sitting alone in my square room and give Dan $ 1,400.”
5. The Houston Food Bank
The Houston Food Bank needs volunteers and donations, as well as robust federal assistance.

The Houston Food Bank has worked tirelessly to provide food and services as Houston residents continue to deal with a range of disaster within disaster. After last week’s winter storm, they need our help more than ever.
The president – or anyone else reading this – can volunteer their services or donate to their work here (doesn’t have to be $ 1,400).
I hope President Biden is enjoying his time in Houston, and I look forward to showing him how beautiful this city and America, by and large, can be when people are not on their own.
