Do EaDoin Life, EaDo, Do
The biggest do in EaDo has got to be the Houston Dynamo (2200 Texas Ave.), who have played their matches in the geometrically awesome BBVA Compass Stadium since 2012. The Houston Dash, a women’s professional soccer team, made their debut there, as well, in 2014.
For a unique perspective on the area, bring your bike to Columbia Tap Rail Trail, which begins at Walker and Delano near the BBVA Compass Stadium and goes through the Third Ward before it connects with Braes Bayou trail.
Not tired yet? Check out EaDo Crossfit (2955 Gulf Fwy.) which bills itself as the “biggest CrossFit box in Texas.” With more than 25,000 square feet of space, it’s certainly big enough to host a multitude of classes. See for yourself at the free intro class on Mondays.
On another planet altogether is Super Happy Fun Land (3801 Polk St.). In this case, the fun is experimental electronic music, underground jazz and outsider art.
Feeling experimental yourself? Try Odd Thursday’s Poetry Open Mic Night. Bigger name acts like Public Enemy, and Tegan & Sara take the stage at Warehouse Live (813 St Emanuel St.), which in a former life was—you guessed it—a warehouse. The intimate vibe and excellent acoustics of both Warehouse stages are pluses. They feature a lot of indie bands and up-and-comers, too.
