In this week’s digest: an EaDo favorite reopens, Harris County funds bike project, and ways to help small music venues you love.
Late last year the relocation of Prohibition to EaDo’s Chapman & Kirby was announced, but the plan was scrapped due to COVID-19 restrictions. Although the art of burlesque may be on hold, the good news is that EaDo favorite Chapman & Kirby will reopen (details are available below).
Harris County expands Houston B-Cycle project
Houston B-Cycle (the city’s premier bike share program) is putting an expansion plan to work as Harris County spends $250,000 on 100 new electric bikes. The project also includes the installation of 30 new bike stations in low income areas and 320 non-electric bicycles. Six of the planned bike stations are set to be installed along the Columbia Tap Trail through EaDo and South Central Houston to Brays Bayou.
How to help Warehouse Live and other small venues stay afloat
Beloved local venue Warehouse Live has brought world renowned stars like Prince, Adele, Lizzo and Drake to Houston. With live events now cancelled due to COVID-19, they’re asking for your help in persuading the government to support independent music venues. You can do your part by filling out a form on the National Independent Venue Association website.
Warehouse Live also received media coverage this week for their witty comeback against a California-based theater’s taunt against the Houston Astros.
