dwightHOUSTON, TX – “Houston we have liftoff!” That tweet and picture with James Harden was Dwight Howard’s way of letting us know he had arrived in Clutch City.

The new Rocket seems to be settling in nicely.

Dwight picked Houston soul food staple The Breakfast Klub for his first meal of the day Tuesday. He was even sporting Rockets gear, although he couldn’t officially sign with the team until Wednesday.

“He came by today, was very hospitable, received well by the crowd, ate some good grits, some great catfish, and he even treated everybody in line to breakfast. That was exciting,” said Breakfast Klub owner Marcus Davis.

Twitter blew up — from people who were there and those who wished they were there.

Dwight’s whereabouts the rest of the day were unknown. Perhaps he was working off that fish and grits.

Welcome to Houston, Dwight!
