The Look Ahead: Rugby at Stag’s, Prayer at Rice, Splatter at Drafthouse and Volunteer at Art Festival

Let’s get today over with. My heart has already settled on Tuesday being it’s day of choice. Mondays are the pits. Houston, what have you for me to lay my eyes upon?


USA vs. Italy: Rugby World Cup at Stags Head Pub

Where: Montrose-Area [2128 Portsmouth St., 77098]
When: Tuesday, September 27th
How much: Free
Scoop’d from: @TheStagsHeadPub

This one goes out to Richard and his gang of heathens. The team from US of A has gotten smoked by Ireland and Australia thus far, only sandwiching a victory over Russia in between the two defeats. Tonight (or more correctly, tomorrow in the wee hours of the morning), Italy will line up against our hometeam. Stag’s Head will be airing the replay tomorrow. You heard it here first (maybe).

Pray the Devil Back to Hell — Sneak Preview at Rice Cinema

Where: Rice University: Rice Cinema — Entrance #8 at Stockton
When: Wednesday, September 28th | 7:00PM to 8:30PM
How much: Free
Scoop’d from: HoustonPBS

“Join HoustonPBS for the Season Premiere of the Community Cinema series—free sneak preview screenings of upcoming documentaries that will air on Independent Lens–as we screen the award-winning documentary, PRAY THE DEVIL BACK TO HELL, by Abigail E. Disney, Pamela Hogan, Gini Reticker.

SplatterFest 2011 at Alamo Drafthouse West Oaks

Where: West Oaks Mall
When: September 27th through October 1st
How much: Buy your tickets to the individual days/events.
Scoop’d from: SplatterFest

All you horror movie junkies better be listening. SplatterFest is your siren’s song. Starting tomorrow and straight on through the weekend, you’ll be wanting to get your butt in a seat at Alamo Drafthouse – West Oaks. Special screenings of flicks as well as guest speakers (which include none other than Bruce Campbell), should be the right fit for your afternoon plans.

Art League Houston Needs Volunteers for Bayou City Art Festival

Where: Downtown Houston — City Hall, Hermann Square and Surroundings
When: Saturday and Sunday, October 8th and 9th | 10:00AM to 6:00PM
How much: Free if you volunteer; $12 for each day
Scoop’d from: @ArtLeagueHousto

Consider this a two-fer… The Bayou City Art Festival is right around the corner. Mark your calendars for October 8th and 9th. If you’re feeling generous, reach out before the event to help out Art League Houston. They have three shifts on both days that they need to fill up with willful volunteers. You could be one of the proud neighbors that helps out and gets free admission in the process.
