Houston Events for May 2019

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

I hope you made it to one of the events I had last month! We had a great time viewing art and watching TED Talks. Come edit Wikipedia with me at Project Row Houses on May 11

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.
