White Linen Night Party Essentials
Are you ready for White Linen Night in the Heights? One of our favorite neighborhood celebrations is back on Saturday, August 5, 2017, in the 200 & 300 blocks of 19th Street in the Houston Heights! We’ll be out and about with our neighbors from 6 p.m. – 10 p.m.
About White Linen Night
White Linen Night came to Houston Heights in 2006 after festival founders Chris and Kay Thayer—displaced by Hurricane Katrina—moved to Houston from New Orleans. Modeled on a similar event from the French Quarter Arts district of New Orleans, the Thayers and the Heights First Saturday group organized White Linen Night to promote interest in and traffic to 19th street. Dress in your white linen finest and come out to enjoy White Linen Night—the event is open to the public and charges no admission fee.
White Linen Night Parties
Shop, mingle and enjoy the evening meeting your neighbors during White Linen Night on 19th Street. From food and drink to live music and shopping your favorite Heights artists and businesses, White Linen Night is one of the best parties of the year. Many Heights residents throw their own White Linen Night parties in conjunction with the event, and while it might be too late to update your Heights-area home bar this year, K&N Sales can help you create a custom home bar and updated kitchen to be ready for White Linen Night 2018. We can even help you do it for less if you stop in and shop now to take advantage of the current Wood-Mode ‘Pick-2’ Savings Event!
