Art market, ballooning monkeys & secretly viewing fireworks in the Heights — Revelry is set to abound in the Heights this weekend for Independence Day. The First Saturday Arts Market, an evening affair during summer, has switched back to daytime hours, 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. at its site at 514 West 19th.

119 years later, Heights still carrying out founders’ legacy — The history of the Houston Heights is a popular topic of conversation in the neighborhood, and there's perhaps no better look at the early days than "The History of the Houston Heights: From Its Foundation in 1891 To Its Annexation in 1918." The slim volume, first published in 1956 was written by Sr.

Brazarre little bit bawdy, little bit risque, but oh so vital — This weekend sees the return of Brazarre to the Houston Heights. The fifth annual fundraiser for the American Cancer Society featuring artful takes on bras will be held at G Gallery, 301 East 11th, Saturday, May 30, from 6-9 p.m. If you've never been to Brazarre before, you're in for a treat.

Great Taste of the Heights showcases neighborhood’s progress

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.
