This week, I have recs on Tex Mex, dance parties, and the best places to watch the Astros in the playoffs. Enjoy!

Thursday Nights At Armandos

Armandos, a Tex-Mex favorite in Houston, is also known for its Thursday night dance parties. The dance parties, which have been ongoing since the 1980s, are starting to bring a younger crowd as word spreads around Houston. [Houston Chronicle 🔒]

New Casual Bar In EaDo

For fans of Miss Carousel, check out their new concept Lightnin’s Good Times for cheap drinks, pinball machines, pool tables, and a dance floor. While you’re there, grab a slice of pizza to-go from Vinny’s next door. [Houston Chronicle 🔒]

Let’s Go Astros

Are you looking to watch the Astros and cheer them on as they make their way through the playoffs? Several Houston restaurants and bars are offering deals, including the ‘Stros Smash Burger at Heights & Co, happy hour prices all day at J-Bar-M Barbecue, and $20 Orbit buckets of beer or drinks at Christian’s Tailgate.
