The Look Ahead: a Bayou City Art Festival, a Revival Market Opening, and a Burger Shack Moving

It’s a beautiful day in the neighborhood, if your neighborhood is Houston. It was one of these weekends where we told ourselves we’d relax and just take care of some of life’s nuts and bolts—replace a car battery, knit a scarf, or prepare them taxes. Somehow in the end, those small things managed to suck the down time right out of the weekend. So here we are on Monday, once again, not quite rested.

That doesn’t mean we’re not ready for this week’s worth of events. Let’s have it!


Bayou City Art Festival Memorial Park 2011

Where: Memorial Park – [1500 Memorial Dr.]
When: Friday, Saturday, and Sunday, March 25th through March 27th; 10.00 AM to 6:00 PM
How much: $12.00 for Adults, Children under 12 are free
Scoop’d from: @houstonartfest

This year’s Bayou City Art Festival could not have come at a better time given this incredible weather. Memorial Park is fitting for this three day outdoor festival. With food, art contests, art for purchase, arts and crafts, wine and cooking demonstrations, and live performances, just to name a few—there’s something for even the closet creative.


Revival Market Opens in the Heights

Where: Revival Market – Heights [820 W. 27th St.]
When: Today!
How much: Free until you purchase
Scoop’d from: @ssegraves

Revival Market was bustling on it’s first official morning. @frankcfreeman and Dustin were manning the coffee bar and turned out a quick cup of coffee and a Cortado. I tried to take a quick look around the place and saw the butcher area going through some finishing touches and breads and pastries being delivered from Kraftsmen. I’m already looking forward to having Revival Market in the Heights.


The Burger Shack is Moving

Where: The Burger Shack – West Houston [OLD:14741 Memorial Dr., NEW:8412 Katy Freeway #310]
When: Old Shop to Close March 26th, New Shop to Open April 1st
How much: Burgers under $9.00

“We have enjoyed out years on Memorial Drive, but we were unable to find a location in the area. Your support has made our time there very enjoyable and we look forward to seeing you at our new location.
Thanks again for your support!”

Revival gets their bread from Slow Dough and pastries from Fluff Bake Bar not kraftsmen.
