Our weekly digest spotlights local news and EaDo-related events to keep you in the loop when it comes to the best neighborhood In the Loop. Catch it every week to stay informed.
In this week’s digest: Fans can attend Dynamo and Dash matches again, live events are returning in a limited capacity, and the Houston Chronicle highlighted an EaDo artisan duo, the Dumpling Dudez.
Phase 2 of the MLS and NWSL “Return to Play Protocols” is being rolled out. That means fans can attend matches in-person again! Stay tuned for more info as attendance will be limited and tickets will likely sell fast.
So far, Dynamo and Dash matches are the only live events returning to EaDo, but Mayor Turner’s approval of reopening live events in “controlled environments” with limited audiences is a positive sign. Any events that are approved in the future will require attendees to wear masks, answer a virus questionnaire, and take part in a temperature screening.
The Dumpling Dudez were highlighted as one of 20 local establishments to support. The duo’s first virtual pairing experience with Saint Arnold is completely booked, but keep an eye out for the next one. After all, how can you go wrong with beer and dumplings? Until then, you can order delightfully savory or sweet dumplings from the Dudez at www.dumplingdudez.com.
