You've been sitting in your darkened, powerless house, dreading the coming return of humidity, mourning the lost days, wondering when there will be some relief.
Fear not: The Houston Press Best of Houston Launch Party is still on.
This Thursday, at Lucky's Pub, celebrate the best of Houston -- including this city's ability to make sure no storm will prevent us from having a party.
Food samples from six restaurants, drink specials and "sinful entertainment" in line with this year's theme of the Seven Deadly Sins is on tap.
More details -- and ticket discounts -- are available here.
Show up. Give Ike the finger.
