Finally, check out this very cool new Texaplex Houston video by David Winans. That led me to this video, which has a title that I think could be a good alternate nickname for Houston (instead of Bayou City or Space City): "Texas' Powerhouse" - a play off the energy capital thing as well as the vibrancy and growth.
