In German there's apparently a phrase that translates to "speaking about the weather," which doesn't necessarily mean you talked about the weather with someone; it just means y'all didn't have a whole lot to say. Anyway, we sure are glad it wasn't completely sucky outside this weekend. Not that we spent a bunch of time outdoors. We were too busy drinking, dancing and watching the Aeros lose. Twice.

Super Happy Fun Land Reopening Party

Poopy Lungstuffing, the Annoysters, Styrofoam Duck, Muzak John and Kevin 11 helped christen the new SHFL location on Polk Street. We dropped by and brought back words and pics.

12:15 a.m. at Kobain and 1 a.m. at Catbirds

Bill Olive gave us another round of party pics, this time moving from yupster to hipster, from alt-rock to free jazz.

Aeros Face Off Against the Rampage

The Aeros lost. Twice. We'll let our esteemed sports columnist take it from here.

Here's hoping you put the "mo" in Monday, whatever that means. -- 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.
