Houston Events: June 30 – July 4

Last night in Downtown Houston was legendary.  I went from Notsuoh to Dean’s to Nightingale Room to Christian’s Tailgate and then ended my night at Alley Kat. If you didn’t know, sign up for my newsletter so you won’t miss events or check the MerlexPicks calendar. I’ll be putting out a list of concerts for July-September soon.

This weekend I’ll be at Emancipation Park. The lineup of DJs and performers is *ridiculously* good. Enjoy the long weekend responsibly!
