Houston Events February 22 – 27

30 events to get you through the week. Wednesdays feel like Saturdays in Houston because there’s always so much happening, but Sunday looks like it’ll have me exhausted! I’m hearing nothing but rave reviews about Syncing Ink at Alley Theatre which runs through March 5 so check it out! As always, check out my newsletter and merlexpicks.com. And leave a comment if you want more details about the individual events.

Last but not least, a HUGE congratulations to both the many organizers who worked to end the Harris County and ICE program as well as those who worked to get a fair trial for Duane Buck!!! In that spirit, here’s an article about ways that you can resist government raids.
