George Carlin, RIP. We now pause for a moment of seven-word cussing...

12:04 a.m. at Mugsy's

Bill Olive hung out on Kirby on Saturday night, starting at Mugsy's...

1 a.m. at the Big Easy Social and Pleasure Club

...and working his way down to the Big Easy.

2008 Southwest Foodservice Expo

Jay Francis tried some Dry Soda at the Foodservice Expo at the George R. Brown Convention Center.

Tom Waits at Jones Hall

Tom Waits performed to a sold-out crowd last night at Jones Hall. Mark C. Austin was there for photos. We'll have words in a little bit.

Astros vs. Rays

The 'Stros actually won a series. Imagine that.

We've still got photos of Saturday's Lebowski Fest at the Caroline Collective on the way. Stay tuned. -- 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.
