In this week’s digest: KPRC spotlights an EaDo car wash, two music venues reopen, and a new mural honoring Houston’s high school seniors is unveiled.
KPRC recently featured local black-owned businesses you can support. Among them was EaDo Hand Car Wash, which is owned and operated by husband-wife duo Jason and Starr Harry. Note to the wise: the Harrys also own nearby food truck EaDeaux’s Cajun Cocina, so you can occupy the time your car is being cleaned by eating delicious Cajun food.
EaDo’s Warehouse Live and The Secret Group are reopening. Event lineups are filling up and tickets are already available online. However, be sure to read each venue’s new safety policies before you visit, as precautions are being put into place to protect both customers and employees.
A new mural honoring the Class of 2020 was unveiled at 2102 Leeland Street during the virtual graduation celebration hosted by the City of Houston. Read more about the local artists who came together to pay tribute to seniors and the inspiring messages they included in the mural.
