Heights Happenings

Tonight Wed, July 8, 8 pm: Jeff Strahan at Dan Electro's Guitar Bar
  • If it's been a while since you've popped in to Dan Electro's, why not go tonight for some good Texas music?
  • Jeff Strahan, musician turned trial lawyer turned musician, will be serving up some Texas Red Dirt Music for your listening pleasure
Saturday, July 11, 8 am- Noon: Central City Co-op Benefit Garage Sale

  • Central City Co-op works hard to keep their prices low, making organic foods affordable for everyone. Because of this, they have to work hard to raise money when they need things like new refrigerators and necessary repairs. They support local growers, so let's support them!
  • The garage sale, located at Fixer's Automotive on 11th Street, will have an abundance of toys, clothes and household items, as well as a large collection of donated plants for sale: mature ferns in clay pots, kalanchoes in red and yellow, impatiens, swamp lillies, and gingers.
  • Also available for sale will be Bubbles Car Wash tickets. Bubbles donates $4 from each wash to the Co-op. Why would the Co-op want to partner with Bubbles? They are eco-friendly as far as carwashes go, recycling and filtering water to wash multiple cars. Who knew?
Saturday, July 11, 8 pm-12 am & Sunday, July 12, 4 pm-12 am: Absinth Art Show at Big Star Bar
  • AbsinthArt is a grassroots group of rotating, independent artists from the Houston area. The show provides exposure for smaller, unknown artists in various mediums, but mostly oil, ink and acrylic.
  • The group travels to different locations in the city's art and bar scene, this weekend setting up shop at Big Star Bar on 19th St.

Monday, July 13, 7:00 PM: Houston Heights Association General Meeting

  • This month's topic will be “Recycling – Green Ideas for Everyone!”
  • Mike Palmer, recycling educator for the City of Houston, will outline the basics you’ll need to get started and how easy it can be to participate.
  • For those already recycling regularly, Palmer will review ways to improve your contribution to the Houston Recycling Program.
  • Additionally, the City of Houston’s has a new pilot program that started this spring using single-stream recycling! Attendees will learn about this program and projected timelines for expansion into other neighborhoods. It is certain that increasing the Heights participation in the current curbside recycling could put us in line for this exciting program.

Friday, July 10: Chick-fil-A Cow Appreciation Day

  • After all, if anybody in Houston has a cow costume sitting around, it's someone in The Heights!
  • Free Combo for Wearing Cow Costume- wear your favorite cow costume to Chick-fil-A and get a combo meal for free.
  • Important: for the whole shebang the costume must be head to toe! Just a cow part or accessory will garner a free entree.
  • Don't have a cow costume? Well, luckily for you Chick-fil-A is generous and will even offer you a Starter Kit
This and Every Friday, 7 pm: Molly & The Ringwalds at The Continental Club
