The Look Ahead: Going Local, Watching Footie, Tasting Painting

Wednesday sure has been “hump day” as in it’s turned me over and had its way with me. Yes, that’s a bit graphic. No, I’m not sorry. We’re all adults here… Right? Let’s get our groove on with some events.


Brookfield Go Local Festival

Where: Downtown – Continental Center [The lawn at 1600 Smith St., 77002]
When: Thursday, September 15th | 11:00AM to 1:00PM
How Much: Free plus the feeling in your heart for supporting local
Scoop’d from: @imelda

We just came across this because of our friend Imelda. You’re going to have to check it out for yourself to get an idea of what to expect. Looks like they’re billing local crafts, food and art. Sounds like you can’t go wrong if you’re downtown for lunch tomorrow.


Man U v. Chelsea at Bar Munich

Where: Midtown [2616 Louisiana St., TX 77006]
When: Sunday, September 18 @ 10:00am
How Much: No cover, just however much you spend on das boots and pretzels. Plus, however much you lose betting against Chelsea [what? too biased?]
Scoop’d from: Kerri

Bar Munich now opens early on weekends for many of the key Premier League matches, offering a viable alternative to soccer fans who may be a bit weary of watching the Richmond Arms regulars pour that suspicious brown sauce over everything from their eggs to their fries (excuse me, their chips). This Sunday at Bar Munich, it will be the fabled rivalry between Manchester United and Chelsea. And after that football, stick around for the other football with the NFL kicking off at noon and specials on Hofbrau liters (all on tap!) all day.


Second Annual Houston Art Tasting at Pinot’s Palette

Where: Montrose and Galleria Locations
When: Friday and Saturday, September 16th and 17th
How much: $40 in Advance; $50 at the Door | $25 in Advance; $35 at the Door
Scoop’d from: Stacy

Friday’s tasting is in Montrose from 6PM to 8PM; Saturday’s tasting is in the Galleria area from 7PM to 10PM.

“Looking for some great art at a great price? Ever wonder what happens to the second painting our local artists create each night? These duplicate paintings will be available to purchase for $20 to take home or donate! There will also be Art Tasting wine glasses to take home, goodie bags from CultureMap, live DJ from 103.7FM, live painting auction, silent auction, door prizes and much more…”
