The last thing you want to encounter on a Monday night is a buzzkill. For years now, Houstonians have figured the best way to cure whatever kind of funk Monday brings is with a drink and some form of entertainment. It may be football, it may be an atmosphere of unique and interesting people -- whatever people's minds and bodies tell them to do by way of unwinding, they do it.
That includes finding some pretty damn good R&B music to ease their nerves.
Café 4212 -- a spacious lounge located on Almeda on the outskirts of both Midtown and the Museum District -- has its charms, chief among them its inviting atmosphere, wide patio area and upscale identity. Open since 2005, it hasn't been known as a big-time Monday-night spot until recently, when local do-everything entrepreneur Tay Mitch worked up the idea of creating a new side of the place.
