We don't know if you're heard, but there's something going on over at Reliant Stadium called the Houston Livestock Show & Rodeo. We sent the call out over Twitter for Houston folks to tell us their plans, and they did. Y'all are cooperative that way. Houston Press comments are in parentheses.
txkyle: We'll be there tomorrow for the rodeo and carnival w/ the kids. Probably skip the concert, tho. (We understand; by the time Trace Adkins takes the stage, you'll have scarfed down approximately 900,000 calories of fried food. If you're anything like us, that is.)
Catazon: Volunteering in the 2nd highest selling club every 3rd night and taking advantage of perks of doing so when not working. (Intriguing. Tell us more about these "perks.")
j_glover: spent last Thursday at cookoff in KILT tent with Randy Houser and going to Toby Keith this Tues! (Make him show you his limited-edition Ford F650. It's supposed to be bigger than two school buses side by side.)
jhaubein: so excited about the rodeo! Taking kids & my parents to livestock show and carnival for a TEXAS good time! (That's the spirit! Y'all have fun.)
magictoenail: Oooh oooh! I've got a friend visiting from California, and I'm taking her to the rodeo on Saturday. She's never been to one. =) (Just make sure she knows it's not like this all the time. We don't need any more confused out-of-staters wandering around downtown looking for the funnel cake booths.)
she_eats: Eating as many fried products as possible, then getting on the Storm and trying not to puke. Afterwards, petting goats. (What, did someone dare you? Don't puke on the goats. It's rude.)
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.
