2011-03-14/20 Weekly LOVIEE

Honestly, I’m not completely ignoring the rodeo on purpose. It’s over at Reliant Stadium if you want it, but you might have trouble getting in some nights this week. Of course Houston wouldn’t be Houston without the rodeo. But there’s plenty of other things going on this week, like these.
