This weird year could only end weirdly, and that's what it's doing, with some people getting Thursday and Friday off, some people just Friday, and -- we assume -- some poor souls being told "Hey, New Year's is on Saturday, tough luck." (We assume many in that last category lack sufficient worker documentation.)
Here at the Houston Press, we're in the first group of lucky souls, but fear not -- as the seashore souvenir t-shirts almost say, the bloggings will continue until morale improves.
We'll have stuff all day long tomorrow and Friday, including some very helpful tips on how not to get a DWI conviction. And, of course, any breaking news that happens along the way.
So keep on checking back, check our other blogs too, and have a happy and safe New Year's celebration.
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.
