Oh, man, what a weekend. Big ups to the good folks at Free Press Houston, who put on one helluva party on Saturday. We haven't had so much fun since, well, since they used to close off the street for WestFest. Anyone else remember how you could blow down right in front of the cops? Yeah, us neither. But we digress. Time to lay out what the weekend was.
Rockets Beat the Suns
Westheimer Block Party
Bay Area Rally at Johnson Space Center

And no Saturday night is complete without Bill Olive hitting the town and snapping away.
We're only halfway through April, which means 1) it's time to pay your taxes and 2) there's still plenty of outdoor fun to come. -- 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.
