houston events calendar september 14 20 2015i know i say “wow, there are so many good things happening this week” a lot. but umm, this week there are LITERALLY so many FREAKIN good things happening. i am so pumped for the houston vintage fair this weekend – and all the tiki things leading up to it. you KNOW i’m so into surf rock right now, so this is like whoa for me. click on the link to see all the pre-party events they’re doing. and umm, so much comedy and so many plays. i’m way into “performing” arts right now – if you’re wanting a good date night, go see stark naked’s show “small mouth noises”. (they like my blog so much they’re giving me free tickets to go see the show!) if you’re someone in houston who is reading this + putting on a show, please reach out to me. if i’m into your event and you give me FREE tickets i’ll do a little shout out to ya no problem!

also want to say an extra thank you for the folks this weekend who came to shows i recommended on the blog and even came up and talked to me in person + to the guy who emailed me after hearing me on the radio. that was SO exciting for me! if you see me around and don’t know me in real life please oh PLEASE come introduce yourself. (and then i’ll give YOU a shout out on the internet). also if you’re my friend and i hung out with you this weekend! YAY i probably like you a lot thanks for being in my life!
