    The NBA season is back and now it's your chance to get in on the action. With the addition of several key players, most notably Carmelo Anthony, our Rockets have their eyes set on one thing: bringing a championship back to Houston for the first time since 1995. This season is set to be one of the most exciting in recent memory, as a stacked Western Conference is going to put up a tough fight.

    Ice houses have a special place in Texas history. In the early 1900s, nearly every Texas town had one of these establishments, which sold ice blocks for home ice boxes. But with the advent of electrical refrigerators, ice houses evolved into small convenience stores of sorts, and eventually became neighborhood gathering places where patrons could stop for an ice cold beer and conversation.

    For some, it’s a lucky pair of underwear or socks. For others, it’s neglecting to shave after the latest win. Superstitions are real and they hit the Houston area hard in the Astros post season.

Rather than packing in and heading home, our suggestion is to pitch a tent at the festival. Spend a night under the stars at The Fields of New Market Campground and be one of the first in line for the next day’s activities at the fair. Back in the early days of the campground, it was not the most glamorous affair; though, now armed with...
