Houston Events for October 2018

Hi! Are you subscribed to my newsletter? Here’s my curated list of Houston events for the entire month of October! I know these lists are long which is why my newsletter has featured events every week. As always, I hope to see you out in the city!

Voter registration ends on October 9 for the November 6 elections! See my post on early voting which begins October 22.

I’ll be updating this post as the month goes on but for now you’ll find plenty to get into. including happy hours! Check out the embedded calendar from Merlex Picks for details on each event.
