Looking for an inexpensive happy hour alternative tonight? The Rainbow Lodge is holding its monthly "Sip and Stroll" wine event on the patio from 5:30 to 7:30 p.m., featuring four wines from the Santa Lucia Highlands of Monterrey, California and Chef Mark Schmidt's ever-popular wild game meatballs. A total of four stations offering bites paired with wine will be set up for you to enjoy as you wander the grounds.
The cost for all of the meandering, wining and nibbles? $29 -- not too shabby. So, roust up some friends and take advantage of the not as-of-yet totally sweltering heat. The suggested attire is casual, so lose the monkey suit if you have time. For reservations, call 713-861-6661.
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.
