Four and four equals Heights culture weekend — Once again, it's all about the culture in the Heights this weekend. Also, about the number four as two local groups mark four years providing unique sights and sounds. First, 14 Pews microcinema will be celebrating its fourth birthday with a benefit party and silent auction at the home of 14 Pews board member Brie Kelman, 1207 Harvard, from 6-9 p.m.

Norhill Home Tour a look into Heights past, present, future — If you want to get a nice look at life in the Heights in the past, and as it continues to be in the present (and hopefully future), you need look no farther than the Norhill Historic District.

Blood, Sunday Streets, local brewers and, what was that first one again? — Just in time for Halloween, UpStage Theatre will be turning Lambert Hall into a bit of a Shakespearean bloodbath the next two weekends. The all-volunteer theatre is not making a haunted house (the top local place for that is here), but rather staging "Macbeth" by William Shakespeare.

Art in the Heights so bright, gotta wear shades — The first weekend of the month in the Heights generally is filled with activities ranging from art openings to restaurant specials and more. But this time, it's the final weekend in September that has the head spinning. Here's a quick rundown. Opera in the Heights is kicking off its 19th season with a production of "Rigoletto" by Giuseppe Verdi.

Heights Garden Club getting set for (finally) fall — The heat in the Heights is still, uh, pretty darn hot, but on my calendar it says that the autumnal equinox is only 10 days away, so I'm going with that. To that end, my thoughts as a Heights gardener (and for those of you who have seen my yard, your sniggering at my self-description there is NOT appreciated.

Registration under way for Heights Bike Rally — For many years, the first Sunday in October was known as the weekend of the annual Heights Festival, which was so popular it reached unmanageable proportions for an all-volunteer operation like its host, the Houston Heights Association.

Heat shmeat. Talk fall planting, protection of Heights trees — After we all thumbed our nose at the heat on White Linen Night (and I do mean all. Have you seen the pictures? Holy moley! That was a redonkulous crowd!), the heat seems to be retaliating and high temperatures are sapping us all. Though really, if you live in Houston, you deal with it.

White Linen Night is the Heights’ answer to heat — So in my mind the annual Houston heat and humidity (which since I just got back from vacation in Santa Monica I am feeling just a tad more than usual this season) goes about wreaking its evil ways on the Heights every year about this time.

Revival Market sharing the kitchen love this summer — Summer camps can conjure up images of children at play, Lord of the Flies-style bands roving through the countryside and bonfires spurting out stories as well as heat and light. But here in the Heights, summer camp is going to be all about the adult delectables.

World Cup matches run gamut of styles in round of 16 — Brazil had two tough friendly matches against Chile in 2013, drawing 2-2 and winning 2-1, and if we learned anything watching the Chileans as they knocked out defending champion Spain and destroyed Australia, it is the Chileans are afraid of nobody.
