Dragon boat time already?

Latin Wave Film Festival

Thru May 5 | Museum of Fine Arts, Houston

The ninth annual festival curates a selection of films that represent the breadth of Latin American, from the true-crime art heist of Mexico's Museo to the lesser-known days of Cuban revolutionary Che Guevara in La otra cara del combate. Read more about the latter film and the festival here.

Tickets $10. Museum of Fine Arts, Houston, 1001 Bissonnet St. 713-639-7300. More info and tickets at

My Favorite Murder Live

May 3 | Smart Financial Centre

Hats off to Karen Kilgariff and Georgia Hardstark, the rare comedy podcasters who've managed to leverage true crime storytelling into a rabid online fanbase. Their roving live show comes to Sugar Land to promote their forthcoming book, Stay Sexy and Don’t Get Murdered; we curated three episodes here that will convert you into a full-blown Murderino in no time at all.

From $44. Smart Financial Centre, 18111 Lexington Blvd., Sugar Land. 281-207-6278. More info and tickets at

Houston Dragon Boat Festival

May 4 | Allen's Landing

No, you will not see a Houstonia team rowing down Buffalo Bayou in this weekend's dragon boat festival, but that's no reason to miss the annual celebration of Asian culture. Organizers provide the Hong Kong style BuK Dragon Boats; competitors race to the finish. The only real loser is anyone who touches the water.

Free. Allen's Landing, 1005 Commerce St. More info at

Sample Eureka Heights, Platypus, and Holler brews on this leisurely bike tour—all enabled by our wonderful, ever-growing network of bayou trails and bike lanes.
