In this week’s digest: The Dynamo are headed back to the pitch, EaDo had a big winner at the Tastemaker Awards, and an upcoming bartender is taking over Chapman and Kirby.
Just weeks after the Houston Dash captured the National Women’s League Soccer Championship, the Dynamo are returning to the pitch to play FC Dallas. In-game attendance for the 2020 re-opener at BBVA Stadium is prohibited, but you can catch the match on channel 55 QuestTEXAS.
The CultureMap Tastemaker Awards on August 6th was packed with EaDo nominees, and one of them took home two huge prizes. Chef of the Year (Jason Vaughan) and Pastry Chef of the Year (Julia Doran) both went to our very own Nancy’s Hustle!
This Saturday, 8/15, the iconic music venue’s cocktail curators will be serving up drinks at the Chapman and Kirby Industry Takeover. According to an Instagram post, the beats will be provided by DJ Mohawk Steve.
