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.

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.
