Sunday Streets, I-45 plans and the (greater) Houston Heights — Cigna Sunday Streets returns to the Heights from noon to 4 p.m. this Sunday, April 26, this time along West 19th Street. West 19th is already one of the most walkable commercial streets in the greater Houston Heights, and with motorized traffic blocked off between Yale and North Shepherd, it'll be even more so.

Heights full of activity on holiday weekend — Happy Passover and Easter weekend everybody. With so much holiday going on, there are bound to be family in town, and if it's anything like my house, you might be wondering just what you're going to do with everyone. Well, here's a handy-dandy guide and, best part of the whole thing, you don't have to go far.

OH to finish season with different take on “Carmen” — Opera companies around the world are known for making sure their seasons rely heavily on the most well-known (and thus, most money-making) productions, hence the many, many productions all around the world of "La Boheme," "Madama Butterfly," "Aida" and many more.

Heights trees take center stage; Women’s Club Open House — The Houston Heights Association's Urban Forestry Committee and the City of Houston Forestry office will host the Heights Right-of-Way Tree Day at Donovan Park at the corner of Heights Boulevard and East 7th Saturday, Feb 28, from 9 a.m. to noon.

Rodeo and the Bard hit the Heights — This weekend is the final chance you'll get to see UpStage Theatre 's production of "The Complete Works of William Shakespeare (Abridged) [Revised]" at Lambert Hall, 1703 Heights Blvd. Back in the day of course, Shakespeare's plays could only be performed by male actors on the Globe stage, as female actors were forbidden.

Chili cookoffs, Green Valentine fill to-do list (Wins all around) — Things have been busy in Home in the Heights global HQ, so it seems I've gotten behind in my mail. However, looking at this list of goings-on in the grand ol' neighborhood, I have poked my head above the morass just in time to catch up with some kickin' stuff going on this weekend and beyond.

EQ Heights to open soon; Teo at 14 Pews; Opera discount — For the past year, I have been getting questions on what's going on in the erstwhile Waldo's Coffee House (and briefly Boulevard Coffee) at 1050 Heights Boulevard. That answer is apparently "almost brewed and ready to serve."

Lights in the Heights turns 27 — Once again reduced in size in an effort to keep the event under some semblance of control, Lights in the Heights is back in the Woodland Heights for its 27th edition from 6-9 p.m. this Saturday night. (For a great look at sights of LITH past, check out this gallery.)

Crossing off shopping list (and bank account) in the Heights — After this weekend, if you have come to the Heights to cross off your Hanukwanzfestisolticemas shopping list and you're still not finished, you have no one to blame but that person in the mirror. (Some people get a little ticked off when you use the word "Holiday" to describe this time of year, so in their honor, you get the above term.

‘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.

Not really a genocide kind of guy, but if someone were to, say, eliminate mosquitos, pretty sure I'd be OK with that. #eeeeeeeeeSLAP

This --> RT @ahverdejo But just a point to be made with any rankings (teams, recruits, etc.)...they don't really matter.
