The Rodeo Festivities Begin At City Hall, Sloppy Joes Included

Maybe the homeless didn't get the memo, or maybe the Houston Police Department officers standing around the periphery kept them away, but today's Downtown Rodeo Roundup at City Hall was full of button-down freeloaders. Long lines led to free sloppy joes, and free bandanas abounded. There was also the chance to get photographed on a steer, which enabled plenty of downtown workers to finally check that one off their life to-do list.
