Houston Events for April 2019

Here’s my curated list of Houston events for the entire month of April! Are you subscribed to my newsletter? As always, I hope to see you out in the city!

This month I have a few events going on and you’re welcome to join me at all of them! A mixer at the Museum of Fine Arts Houston on April 25, a TEDxHoustonLive event on April 26, the Houston Afrofuturism Book Club on April 28, and a Wikipedia Edit-a-thon on April 30!

I may update 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.
