Houston Events for August 2019

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

Stay tuned for a list of weekly and monthly events coming soon (mainly so I don’t have to track them down constantly). Also, if you didn’t know, Houston Restaurant Weeks runs August 1 through September 2!!

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.
