Get your tickets for the Spring Nutcracker Market

 March is here, and that means March Madness. The University of Houston and Texas Southern are the lone Houston teams in the basketball tournament, and there’s plenty of places to watch our teams bring it home. And, if you want to take your team pride a step further, grab some gear from the new tech-forward Nike store in CityCentre. 

Kaleo is in town for a one-night-only concert at the House of Blues for his Fight or Flight Tour and, like always, Houston can’t go a week without a new restaurant opening. Stop by Eighty Six’d Restaurant & Bar Groups’ new Irish pub and sushi bar, and usher in spring by purchasing your tickets for the Nutcracker Market. 

We’ve rounded up some of the best things to do in Houston. Start your week here: 

Kaleo Live in Concert

Icelandic rock band Kaleo will be in Houston on Monday night for their Fight or Flight Tour at the House of Blues. The tour celebrates the band’s 2016 hit album A/B that had three chart-topping singles, the Grammy-nominated “No Good,” gold-selling “All the Pretty Girls” and the 2x Platinum-certified “Way Down We Go,” which was used in more than two dozen television shows from Grey’s Anatomy to Riverdale. 

House of Blues, 1204 Caroline St. Monday, March 21, at 6 p.m. Tickets start at $39.50. More information here. 

Try Eighty Six’d Restaurant & Bar Groups’ newest restaurants

Local restaurant group Eighty Six’d, responsible for Bovine and Barley and The Fish, has opened three new restaurants: Sushi on Post Oak, Ducky McShweeney's Irish Pub and Toque. Owned by Michael Collins, the three new concepts are housed inside the old Jenni’s Noodle House at 2027 Post Oak Blvd. with the hopes to fill a void in neighborhood bars in Highland Village. 

Eighty Six’d, 2027 Post Oak Blvd. Now open. More information here.
