Max Flinn has already had a busy 2020, playing the Steamboat Springs MusicFest and recording and writing new music in Nashville. But the Houston-based country artist is certain that his show at the Rodeo’s Hideout honky-tonk (March 10, rodeohouston.com) will be a highlight of the year. “I've been attending the Rodeo for as long as I can remember, and always dreamed of getting involved musically,” says Flinn, who’s played the Rodeo’s Wine Garden tent for the last couple of years. “The way I look at it, the Hideout is one step closer to the big stage.”

Valerie and Ellie Cassady at PepperLou Gifts

In West Houston, in a nondescript shopping center at the corner of Memorial and Kirkwood, there's a hidden-gem boutique filled with treasures from all over the country called PepperLou Gifts. It's the brainchild of Ellie Cassady, a joyful 19-year old with different abilities, and her mom, Valerie. This holiday season, the duo has a ton of fun, festive events in the works at their store — which is named after the family's two cats — including plenty of holiday discounts and CDC-friendly ways to shop safely.
