    Van Morrison

    Let's hope Saturday is a marvelous night for a moondance, because it's Van Morrison's first Houston-area performance since 1978. No doubt the only musician described as a "poet-sorcerer" by the All Music Guide, the Belfast-born Morrison has been a to...

    In the Cards - Houston's funkiest sports bar is but one outpost of Houston's biggest poker league.

    Across the table sits a man. The name "Shonuff" is stitched on a white rectangle on the left side of his dark-blue work shirt. He is a poker player. His goatee hangs off his chin, dark, scruffy and unkempt. It makes his teeth look like they gliste...
