It's starting to look a lot like fall in Houston. After a year of pandemic-ridden closures, the city is emerging out of its lock down mandates, and residents are starting to feel comfortable again in large crowds. This week marked the beginning of Hispanic Heritage Month, and the Latin Festival is kicking off in Pearland, along with seasonal markets, and live music. Also, Houston's rapper-turned-foodie Bun B is returning with his pop-up smash burger concept, Trill Burgers.
