Welcome back. We hope everyone enjoyed the time off. We sure did. (Insert eggnog joke here.)
The Houston Aeros Beat the Springfield Falcons
Cal Clutterbuck got the action going with a brutally legal check, and Petr Kalus sealed the deal with two goals worthy of the highlight reel.
We Are the Hollow Men in the Warehouse District
This party promised scarecrow art and performances by some of our favorite Houston bands, including the Fatal Flying Guilloteens and the Dimes, but it collapsed under its own weight when the kegs ran dry before 11 p.m. We didn’t even make it in the door, instead pulling off a Montrose hat-trick at Poison Girl, Boondocks and Catbird’s.
Our grandma almost got run over by a reindeer, walking home from our house Christmas Eve. You can say there’s no such thing as Santa, but as for me and Grandpa, we’re totally gonna jump that fat bastard next time we see him. – Keith Plocek
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.
