Over the Weekend: Bonnaroo, XO, Sculptura, Astros and Kolaches!
We did some traveling outside our normal stomping grounds this weekend, landing in East Bernard and, natch, Tennessee. But don't worry, we still got plenty of nightlife photos in the Bayou City too, not to mention the weekend baseball wrap.

Sure, Bonnaroo brought dozens of great musical acts to the Volunteer State, but it also drew plenty of pretty women. See if you can spot the Olsen twins... for real.

Houston lost to New York. Three times.
As you can see, that's a lot to recover from. Here's hoping your week is (as) peaceful (as you want it to be). -- Keith Plocek
