The Look Ahead: Pizza & Beer, Joyful Yoga, Cooking Classes and a Concert in the Park

Good Noon to you, Loopsters! I trust you had a relaxing Memorial Day. Hopefully you’re not too buried at work. If so, check out some of the week’s events on a break. If you’re hoping to push off your responsibilities for tomorrow, dig right in. In any case—enjoy.



Pizza and Beer at Kenneally’s

Where: Kenneally’s Irish Pub [2111 South Shepherd Dr., 77019]
When: Tuesday, May 31st | When you get off work until close
How Much: Depends on your appetite
Scoop’d From: Kenneally

This one is self explanatory. Pizza, reasonably priced drinks and an unassuming crowd to wind down that first day back at your place of employment.


Joyful yoga at discovery green

Where: Discovery Green [1500 McKinney St., 77010]
When: Tuesday, May 31st | 6:30PM to 7:30 PM
How Much: Free
Scoop’d From: Stephan

So let’s say getting back from this three day weekend you’re so swamped you wish you hadn’t left. The feeling is mutual—I can’t seem to keep my head above the proverbial email river water. Luckily, Discovery Green’s got free outdoor yoga. Sure the day’s have been hot and dry, but when that breeze has kicked in, Houston would have you believe your elsewhere. Take advantage of the mild evenings and stretch out some the day’s stress.



Hands on cooking workshop with the viking university (4 seats remaining)

Where: The Woodlands – Hubbell and Hudson Market and Bistro [24 Waterway Avenue, Suite 125, 77380]
When: Wednesday, June 1st and every Wednesday through July 6th | 6:00 PM to 9:00 PM
How Much: This is for either the serious chef or those with $599.00 to spend. Think of a May-mester from those college days.
Scoop’d From: Hubbell & Hudson Website

This one’s not to be taken lightly. If you’re really looking to up your skills in the kitchen, check it out. Personally, I like cooking. If I had the spare time and the dough, I’d sign up in less time than it takes water to boil (not at high altitude).



Where: Friendswood – Stevenson Park [100 S. Friendswood Dr., TX 77546]
When: Friday, June 3rd | 7:00 PM to 9:00 PM
How Much: Free plus the cost of gas
Scoop’d From: Richard

Sure it’s far, with traffic you’re looking at about a 30 minute drive down I-45. Grab a to-go order at Perry’sEllie’s or Stephano’s (still the best pizza I’ve tasted) – all only minutes from the park. Once you’re there, pull out your folding chairs and relax. This week you’ve got the jazz bands of Clear Brook High School and Friendswood High School, respectively. If anything, it’ll shake things up from your usual routine of a happy hour turned hours. Worth the drive—yes.
