HOUSTON, Texas (KTRK) —
In honor of Donald J. Trump’s 71st birthday, we’re tracing his steps and interests through Houston for ways you can celebrate the 45th president of the United States.
Trump was born on June 14, 1946 in New York, but you don’t have to be in the Big Apple to mark the special occasion.
Here are a few ideas to observe Trump’s birthday in the Bayou City:
Dive in to Tony’s prime ribeye for dinner
Back in March 1989, then real estate tycoon Trump dined at famed Houston restaurant Tony’s on Richmond Avenue, between Weslayan and Edloe. He was joined by other celebrities including former President Richard Nixon, ABC’s Barbara Walters, and others to celebrate former Gov. John Connally and First Lady Nellie Connally’s birthdays.

If you head to Tony’s, check out the Tagliata, a plate featuring sliced, 22-ounce, 55-day aged prime ribeye, Dangiovese Stained Farro, and Marjoram Brush.
Enjoy a taste of Tuscany in The Woodlands
Trump spoke to a packed house one year ago this week at the Waterway Marriott in The Woodlands, as he worked to rally support for his 2016 presidential campaign.
You can dine just steps from where he spoke at Marriott’s Ristorante Tuscany, which offers breakfast, luncheon paninis, cooked-to-order steaks and seafood.

Toast Trump at the Black Gold Bar
When Trump addressed The Remembrance Project National Conference Luncheon in Houston last September, he did it at The Omni Hotel Westside on the Katy Freeway.
The hotel offers a gorgeous setting for drinks and dinner, with a variety of spirits and cocktails available at the Black Gold Bar. Upscale dining is available at the Omni’s Café on the Lake, which offers a breakfast, lunch and dinner menu.

Get invested in real estate and architecture
Trump made his fortune by entering the family business. His interests in real estate and architecture made him a household name in New York, and led to his success as an entrepreneur.
