There is something you can do to help Houstonions after Harvey. The Houston Food Bank (our nation's largest food bank) supports the children, families and seniors in Southeast Texas who are in need of food, water and supplies. A $10 donation will enable Houston Food Bank to provide 30 meals for hungry neighbors in emergencies and throughout the year. Every year Houston Food Bank feeds 800,000 people through its network of food pantries, soup kitchens, senior centers and other agencies. You can pitch in with donations of $10 (feeds 30), $20 (feeds 60) or $30 (feeds 90), now through the end of September, and 100% of the money donated will go to Houston Food Bank's life-changing work. Once this year's disaster relief and recovery needs have been met, any remaining donations will be used to fund ongoing hunger-relief efforts.
Fans of Drunk History and all its slurred education will fall over laughing at Sh*t-Faced Shakespeare, which combines an entirely serious Shakespeare play with one completely inebriated cast member. For the last six years, Sh*t-Faced Shakespeare has been performed in the darkest corners and diviest bars in the U.K., and the cast is bringing the good time to Austin. Side-splitting, raucous and completely interactive, the show is fresh off sell-out runs at the Edinburgh and Brighton Fringe festivals, where a cast member drinks beer, wine and whiskey on stage, drunkenly sings the Dawson's Creek theme song and occasionally (accidentally, of course) bares a nipple or two. Brush up on your Bard knowledge, and head down to Spider House for Much Ado About Nothing, because this is Shakespeare as you never knew you wanted to see him before.
