‘Martinis & Mistletoe’ replaces Home Tour, not Lights in the Heights — As has been chronicled, the Houston Heights Association will not hold a Holiday Home Tour this year. The fundraising event, traditionally scheduled for the first weekend in December, has been transformed instead into the much smaller, and presumably easier to manage " Martinis & Mistletoe Holiday Celebration " cocktail party.

And the children shall lead at Lambert Hall — Opera in the Heights open its production of " Hänsel und Gretel " by Engelbert Humperdinck this weekend. There is little I can add to the fullness of coverage already offered on this production, which looks to be another in a long line of great performances from the Heights' own regional opera company.

Eating in the Heights, a four-weekend gastravaganza — Earlier this week, Chronicle Tech Blogger/Social media Manager/All-Around Good Guy Dwight Silverman wrote a wonderful piece on what restaurants you would include when shepherding visitors on a four-day tour through Houston's diverse culinary landscape. (Read it here.) I love Dwight's list and the intent behind it, showcasing the city through food.

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.
