Check them out, then get ready for the big opening Tuesday. As always, we'll be providing extensive coverage of everything that makes the rodeo so near and dear to Houston, from the cheese of some of the performers to the grease of most of the Midway.
If you see something at the rodeo that you think we should know about, give us a shout, via e-mail or comments.
We're here to serve. And eat lots of fried food and sausage-on-a-stick.
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.
