Houston Events for January 2020

Here’s my curated list of Houston events for the entire month of January! Click the event names to add them to your calendar. Are you subscribed to my newsletter? As always, I hope to see you out in the city!

Happy new decade! Thanks to everyone who pulled me aside over the past couple weeks to tell me you miss the newsletter and the events. These things take a long time to put together but I’m glad folks actually use this info. I’ve put out my new concert list for the first quarter of 2020 as well. 

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.
