Houston's only Stout Irish Rock Band, Blaggards plays a free show tonight at Brian O'Neill's in the Rice Village. It's Big Arse Beer Night and burgers are half-price (to soak up some of that big beer, right?). The music starts at 9:30 p.m., so you can go early to make sure you're properly fed and watered before the dancing starts! Burgers are 1/2 pounders, normally $8.95 and include either chips, a cup of soup or coleslaw, that's a big bunch of delicious burger for $4.475, plus tax and grat (black and bleu with bacon, just saying). Here's a link to their menu, the better to make you hungry with.
