ANOTHER WEEKEND, ANOTHER food-focused affair in H-Town — but we're not complaining. There are plenty of reasons to get out and enjoy family-friendly and late-night fun. Here's the rundown!


ENJOY LIVE TUNES There are a few live-music options tonight! Head to One Fifth Southern Comfortin Montrose for a set by Houston-based guitarist and soul vocalist Skinny Kravitz, who takes the mic at 6pm. Meanwhile, EaDo's 8th Wonder Brewery hosts jazz night, with free live music by Houston Ensemble, performed in the beer garden.

PERUSE A PARKED PARADE This year, dozens of Art Cars won't roll through Downtown, with crowds of thousands gathered to spectate. Instead, the Houston Art Car Experience will be parked at the Orange Show Center for Visionary Art's five-acre campus off I-45 near UH tomorrow through Sunday. Here, socially distanced revelers will be able to walk around a maze of showpieces while enjoying a digital self-guided tour. Daytime tickets (10am-5pm) include special performances, children's craft activities, artist discussions and more; a few nighttime tickets remain for Friday, which will see the vehicles illuminated and include live music, wild costumes, drinks and more.

STRAWBERRY FIELDS FOR... THE WEEKEND! Sweet! Pasadena's annual strawberry festival is back and better than ever. The weekend brings three days of live music, carnival rides, a barbeque cookoff, mud volleyball tournament and, of course, the world's largest strawberry shortcake! Tickets are available for single-day or weekend-long admittance.

FIND FAMILY-FRIENDLY FOODIE FUN For the first time in over a year, Bridgeland resumes its Friday Night Bites events, featuring food-truck fare, live music and outdoor games from 6-10pm. The event promotes Cypress-area small businesses — in the most delicious way. Savor bites by Cuban Spot, Dojo Hibachi and more, and after dinner, chill out with Tiki Ice or sweeten the night with Funnelocity!

DRESS UP, DOWN OR DRAG FOR MOVIE NIGHT The River Oaks Theatre might have left us, but that doesn't mean The Rocky Horror Picture Show has to. Enjoy a live performance of the cult classic film at White Oak Music Hall Saturday at 7pm. Tickets are sold by groups of six or 10, so rally the troops and head out for a night of unbeatable fun.
