Fundraiser at Big Star for Injured Cyclist; Bingo Downtown in Market Square

HEIGHTS— Thursday, September 12, Big Star Bar in the Heights will be hosting a benefit to raise funds for John Williams, a local cyclist who was injured in an accident and has racked up hefty medical bills. The event starts at 7 p.m., but many local cyclists are showing their solidarity by meeting up at Blue Line Bike Lab at 6:30 p.m. and riding over to Big Star. Grab your bike and head over there for cheap beers, music and a silent auction. [Facebook]

DOWNTOWN— Instead of dealing with packed parking lots and long lines to get in on the bingo fun, head downtown. Thursday, September 12, Market Square (Milam and Congress) will host Blanket Bingo. The event will benefit Buffalo Bayou Partnership, Mills-McCoin is calling the numbers and A Fistful of Soul is providing music. A $10 ticket-slash-donation gets you about 10 games; it all starts at 7 p.m. [Eaterwire]
