Lay It Down

This month marks a return to big-money spectator sports for Houstonians. No, the Super Bowl hasn't come back to town — it's time for the trials of Enron executives Ken Lay and Jeff Skilling. Repeated requests to move the proceedings — the "army of truth" was a nice touch, too — suggest that the whole city is ready to watch these alleged bad boys get theirs. Take an opportunity to properly prep when author and Texas Monthly executive editor Mimi Swartz and University of Houston Law Center dean Nancy Rapoport present a lecture titled "A Spectator's Guide to the Enron Trials." Participants can ask questions and get insight into the powerful company that broke the big heart of the Bayou City. 7:30 p.m. Houston Center for Contemporary Craft, 4848 Main. For information, visit $10.
Tue., Jan. 17
