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.

Keep the Houston Press Free... Since we started the Houston Press, it has been defined as the free, independent voice of Houston, and we would like to keep it that way. Offering our readers free access to incisive coverage of local news, food and culture. Producing stories on everything from political scandals to the hottest new bands, with gutsy reporting, stylish writing, and staffers who've won everything from the Society of Professional Journalists' Sigma Delta Chi feature-writing award to the Casey Medal for Meritorious Journalism. But with local journalism's existence under siege and advertising revenue setbacks having a larger impact, it is important now more than ever for us to rally support behind funding our local journalism. You can help by participating in our "I Support" membership program, allowing us to keep covering Houston with no paywalls.
