Coffee, dirt biking, and upcoming bands in Houston
Flight time: 3:50
This time it actually is Houston. (HYOUston, Not HOWston.) I know what you’re going to say. It’s Texas. But there are other cities in Texas besides Austin that can actually be cool. The outdoor enthusiasts will love Terry Hershey Park, a playground of 12.5 miles of dirt trails where bikers and hikers get down. If you’re worried about missing out on buzz via a triple caff, skim foam, Guatemalan roasted, pour over, made-by-magic-gremlin coffee... fear not. Catalina Coffee is a hot spot for java guzzlers, and Blacksmith is one of the best coffee spots in the country, with perfectly sourced beans and occasional pop-ups serving things like smoked bologna tacos. Come on, you can admit you’re intrigued. At night, head over to Warehouse Live, where artists you haven’t heard of yet get their starts. Plus, it’ll probably still be pretty warm there, like light-jacket warm, which sounds pretty nice right about now, doesn’t it?
