Support the independent voice of Houston and help keep the future of Houston Press free.

We’re still a little Peeped out, so let’s get right to the recap…

12:10 a.m. at King Biscuit, 12:45 a.m. at Sixth Street and 1:16 a.m. at Saez 'n Zouk

202 Tuam, former home of Hue (and Union before that), has reopened with a shiny new name, not to mention some late-night, girl-on-guy arm-wrestling action. Photog Bill Olive dropped by for some photos after hitting up King Biscuit and Sixth Street in the Heights.

Aeros Beat the Wolves

The Aeros were down by three goals on Friday night, but that didn’t stop the team from kicking Chicago’s butt. John Royal saw the action firsthand.

The Ten-Cent Plague

Back before video games, comics were all the rage, at least in terms of being scapegoats for deviant behavior. Bob Ruggiero cracked a book to learn more about The Ten-Cent Plague.

And we conclude with a link to this picture, because, well, it’s awesome. – 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.
