It might be only the preseason, but Monday Night Football can still be considered an event (and it’s the only one we’ve got this year…). It’s the first national television for a boys in red, white and blue this season. The starters will only be playing a couple of series before getting subbed out. Pay attention early and enjoy the no-names late.

Your patience has finally run its course. Time to gear up for the reopening of a Houston-area landmark. That’s right, Tookie’s will finally be opening its doors after being sacrificed for our sins during Ike. The big event was supposed to happen today, but is pushed back until Tuesday… It might be pushed back again, so keep your eyes open.

Once things we were nostalgic about thinking them long gone are now coming back!

Buxton is probably one of ten or so Houston bands you’ve probably heard about if you’re just a casual fan. The Ancient Cat Society has been having its fun lately as an auxiliary of the original band, but now Buxton is back to take the belt and the spotlight. Catch them on Sunday at Rudyard’s and turn that casual fandom into a full blown obsession.
