The Look Ahead: Mamou, Hot Dogs, Freestyles and Recoveries

Time to get to the good stuff. We’ve got five more days of awesomely predicted weather ahead of us. You’ll have to forgive the compilers of this article. We’re a little outdoor-happy right now… especially for happy hours around town. Let’s get to the nitty gritty.

Who knew what specials were to be had? Well, we do now that we caught their tweet. $2 Domestics and $3 Imports/Seasonals. Quite nice. And in this weather? Even better. Time to check it out if you didn’t take our word for it the first time.

Is The Big Mamou not your style? How about an outdoorsy evening with the folks in the food truck? Good Dog Hot Dogs will be out at Liberty Station tonight. Get yourself a haute dog. Wash it down with some ice cold beer. Enjoy the afternoon.

We were directed to Houston Press for info, so we’ll do the same. Bun B hosts a night of freestyle battling on the Warehouse Live stage.

“Bun B will host (trill awesome), Trae will perform (deadly awesome), ESG will perform (freestyle royalty awesome), Alchemist will DJ a set (literature awesome), Baby Jae will DJ (Kracker Nutty awesome) and, above all else, IT IS FREE (money awesome).

The most important reason to go, though: The Battle.” – Shae Serrano, Houston Press
