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.


Get outdoors this weekend!

With lovely weather forecasts on the horizon, it’s a great time to discover or revisit your favorite spots in EaDo.


Work up an appetite or go for a relaxing stroll. Take a trip around the neighborhood and hunt for the best piece of public art to snap a selfie. Looking to exercise? The Columbia Tap Trail is a great spot for biking, skating, jogging, or walking—and a trip to the trail is a great excuse to stop in at EaDough, located at Velasco and Polk, for coffee and a pastry.


If you’re looking to take in a full al fresco meal, pop into Leeland House/Around the Corner or Rodeo Goat. The outdoor spaces are great for people-watching while enjoying the long-awaited fall breezes.


Want to make new friends? Show off your costumes early this weekend at East End Backyard’s Halloween party. Or showcase your stein-holding skills at Texas Tailgate’s Oktoberfest


And cheer the Astros into the World Series at 8th Wonder, Around the Corner, Little Woodrow’s EaDo, East End Hardware, Pitch 25, East End Backyard, J-Bar-M, and Texas Tailgate


The home team plays Thursday night at 7 p.m. and Friday at 4 p.m. before the series hopefully returns to Minute Maid for Game 6 on Sunday!


More of a basketball fan? Catch the Houston Rockets at a preseason home game against Miami this Friday. Purchase tickets here.


Lastly, join a Houston Dynamo watch party this Saturday for their final match of the season. The EaDo-based soccer team clinched a playoff spot and this weekend’s match in Portland decides home-field advantage. Watch the game at Pitch 25, Texas Tailgate, and other EaDo bars.
