Drake Leaks Dates of His Cryptic "Houston Appreciation Weekend"
See you soon, Drizzy?

When he's not being the nicest rapper ever, Drake tends to surprise fans with random song releases in the wee hours of the morning, cryptic tweets and multiple moments of canoodling with Rihanna. The sad part about the Rihanna thing is that our boy Aubrey is fine and dandy with the fact that she's in love with somebody else and is only "holding on to go home" with Drizzy because being a popular sex symbol who's also single is a bitch.
Last month, in a cryptic, message-board-like posting on his October's Very Own Web site, Drake made mention of a "Houston Appreciation Weekend," but gave up little else apart from a simple logo. Well, now we know via his Instagram that it's at least a tour kicking off on June 13 and ending June 15, three dates that Toyota Center, House of Blues and Warehouse Live all happen to have open (for now).
We can only hope Houston Appreciation Weekend is just three days of Drake educating us about his cashmere sweaters or singing sad love songs at a lounge somewhere. Maybe playing hopscotch with a bunch of kids. Instead, we suspect it's three Drake shows at three different venues, with three different set lists and plenty of guests.
Hey, think of it as OVO Fest, but without major reunions or OutKast.
