Cool Stuff Happening in Houston this Weekend



Friday... one of my favorite days of the week because it's the day before Saturday, my absolute favorite day of the week! I always make sure to pack my weekend plans with things to do so I can make the most of my time away from the office. 



It looks like a cooler, semi-gloomy weekend, so you might want to plan a couple fun things to do outside during the day, and then some fun plans at night inside. 

Here are some things you might be interested in doing in Houston this weekend, January 26-28, 2018. 


  • Critical Mass at 7pm. The last Friday of every month is Critical Mass— a massive bike ride of over 1,000 riders. Meet at MKT Square Park at 7pm, and the ride leaves at 7:20pm. The full ride is around 20 miles, but you can break off at anytime. 
  • Watch Beauty and The Beast at Levy Park at 6:30pm and bring a picnic. More info

  • Urban Harvest Farmers Market: every Saturday morning 8am-11am. I recommend getting there closer to 8am, because it's less crowded and there are still plenty of items to choose from. If you wait til 11am, most vendors are packing up because they are sold out! More info
