The Look Ahead: Keeney Flute, Kriegie Log, Mikkel Brew and Corso Crew

It’s the start of another week. A few things to put it into perspective; Thanksgiving’s only two weeks away, it’s 80 degrees, ESPN visits U of H this weekend, the Dynamo face Beckham and the Galaxy in the MLS Cup, the Texans are winning, you’re alive, and you can read good. G’day.

Keeney Flute Studio Recital at the University of Houston

Where: University of Houston – Moores Opera House – Dudley Recital Hall [120 School Of Music Bldg., 77204]
When: Monday, November 14th | 7:00PM to 8:30PM
How much: Free
Scoop’d from: University of Houston

Normally I’d have some remnants of the program guide, something within the realm of reasonable expectations. Not today. I have no further information on this, except to say that if your ears bend towards flutes, it’s a safe bet. If not, you’re probably not reading the print below a heading titled: Keeney Flute Studio Recital. Your loss.


Kriegie Wartime Log

Where: Greater Heights – Spring Street Studios – Divergence Music and Art [1824 Spring St., 77007]
When: Monday, November 14th | 8:00PM
How much: $15.00
Scoop’d from: Spacetaker

In February 1944, a 2nd Lt. American bombardier named Warren Arieux was shot down and taken prisoner by the Nazis. He was taken to Barth, Germany to the Stalag Luft I POW camp.

To help combat the stress of camp life, when a man received an interesting letter, wrote a poem, created a recipe, could draw a picture, or wanted to share information about his hometown, he had the time to copy it in multiple journals.

Warren survived the camp and has allowed us a glimpse of his painful—and sometimes humorous—past through the worn pages of his Wartime Log.


Meet Mikkel Borg Bjergsø of Mikkeller at Flying Saucer for Brewery Nite

Where: Downtown – The Flying Saucer [705 Main St., 77002]
When: Monday, November 14th | 2:00PM and on
How much: Talking’s free, the beer is not
Scoop’d from: Facebook

Flying Saucer Houston’ll be tapping many of his beers, that neither you nor I have ever had on draft in Texas. Even if Mr. Bjergsø weren’t going to be there, you’d do well to make room in your schedule and stomach for this Monday night festivity.


SMU vs. UH at Robertson Stadium and ESPN’s College Game Day

Where: University of Houston – Robertson Stadium [3875 Holman St., 77204]
When: Saturday, November 19th | 10:00AM for Game Day, Kick-off 3:30PM
How much: Free for Tailgating; $25-$60 for Game (but they’re probably sold out)
Scoop’d from: ESPN

This Saturday, ESPN’s College Game Day makes its first ever appearance at the University of Houston. Old Red’s moving up in the world; Tier 1 Status, Top 25 National Ranking, and now, Corso and Herbstreit gracing Robertson with their own quirky football banter. I don’t expect tickets will be available. Tailgate? Find the nearest Cougar and jump on the bandwagon.
