Ah, Friday! Finally. Here's a few options for the weekend that caught my eye. First, Houston's own Tody Castillo plays Rudyard's tonight. Should be an awesome show, at a very cool venue. Further, I think they turn out a great burger, if you want to go early and have dinner first. The black bean nachos are nothing to sneeze at, either. Also, Rudyard's has a fabulous Monthly Beer Tasting with Joe Apa- the next is on August 26th, make plans now.

Tomorrow, The Leo Trio are playing a free show at Cactus Music & Video from 1:00 p.m. until 2:00 p.m. I saw/heard them at the 2009 Irish Stew Cook-off, they are quite good. Typically the show and the St. Arnold's are free. To sign up on Google calendar, or see who's playing and when, click the name below.

This weekend is "White Linen Night in the Heights", a wonderful opportunity to explore Heights Area food, drinks, art, music. Wear white, preferably but not necessarily linen and go meander around. If you hit Buchanan's Native Plants (which I just love, by the way) that's where you'll definitely find some St. Arnold's.
HERE is where you can find all the offerings and participants.
My only food note for the day: I had lunch from Quizno's and they have "gone green", and I like that. Almost all of their packaging is compostable or recycles easily. Plus, they have a "2 for $5" menu that keeps lunch costs down. I know, they would be lower if I set foot in a grocery store, or cooked, or made my own damn sandwich. I'm working toward that.
