What a game. What a game. Sorry, Pats fans. You lose. The John Royal Jinx shows no mercy. But we’ll have more on that in a moment. First, let’s talk nightlife.

The Proletariat’s Last Weekend

The Richmond hipster haven is no more. We’ve got all kinds of memories of the place: some good, some bad, all drunk and loud. Here’s a slideshow of crowd shots from Saturday’s Fiery Furnaces show.

Cirque du SoGay at Numbers

This gender-bending show brought out a no-holds-barred crowd. Look no further than this slideshow for proof.

Giants Win the Super Bowl

If you’re not familiar with the John Royal Jinx, here’s a primer. Needless to say, the man struck again. And we can’t help but be happy, because it was one helluva game. Too bad the commercials weren’t all that, as Miss Pop Rocks was quick to point out.

Seriously, what was up with the commercials? We haven’t been so uninspired since that one thing, whatever it was. You remember, right? Yeah, neither do we. – 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.
