Werewolves, baseball, and bat-cycling

Houston Event of the Week
If werewolves are your thing, check out the Full Moon Party on Saturday at Downtown’s El Big Bad. The event, lasting from 9pm until you actually turn into a werewolf (or probably ‘til 2am), will feature a DJ spinning '60s rock, pop, and soul along with food specials and tequila-packed frozen Zombies and Vampiros. Dressing like a wolf is highly encouraged, unless you want to get eaten.

Thursday, July 10th: The hilariously dark Anthony Jeselnik has made his way to our fair city. You’ve seen him hosting his Comedy Central show, The Jeselnik Offensive, and roasting the likes of Donald Trump, Roseanne, and Charlie Sheen. Now join him for three nights of borderline-sociopathic comedy at the Houston Improv, starting tonight at 8pm. If you can’t make tonight’s show, pick between two showtimes (8pm and 10:30pm) on both Friday and Saturday night. Tickets start at $25 for general admission.

Friday, July 11th-Sunday, July 13th: This weekend, the Houston Astros face off against the infamous Boston Red Sox. Head to Minute Maid Park for what we’re hoping will be three days of glorious victory. If all else fails, the food is good and there are fireworks on Friday. Find tickets here.

Saturday, July 12th: If the thought of running a 5K whilst being sprayed with UV neon glow powder gets you absolutely pumped, check out the Blacklight Run this Saturday at NRG Stadium. It’s pretty simple. Show up in white, run 3.1 miles, and finish looking like you’ve just massacred every last one of the Care Bears. Head to the after party for more glow, some swag, and a guaranteed good time. Register here for $60. The race is at 8:30pm with check-in starting at 5:30pm.

Saturday, July 12th: Bicycling is cool and all, but bicycling with bats and grabbing beers after? Much cooler. Join Bayou City Outdoors in a Bats, Bikes & Brews tour this Saturday starting at 7:15pm. Bring your own bike or rent a B-Cycle at the Sabine St station, then ride along the bayou to the Waugh bat bridge, where you’ll hang out with the bats before heading Downtown for a few cold ones.
