Over the Weekend: Rockets, Westheimer Block Party, Licorice, Bikers and Drinking
Oh, man, what a weekend. Big ups to the good folks at Free Press Houston, who put on one helluva party on Saturday. We haven't had so much fun since, well, since they used to close off the street for WestFest. Anyone else remember how you could blow down right in front of the cops? Yeah, us neither. But we digress. Time to lay out what the weekend was.

We're only halfway through April, which means 1) it's time to pay your taxes and 2) there's still plenty of outdoor fun to come. -- Keith Plocek
