GALLERIA— One of Houston's most popular local bands (as in, catch them before they go national and you have to pay $$$ to listen live), The Tontons is playing a free concert Tuesday (September 10) at Aloft Houston by the Galleria. The show starts at 6 p.m. You don't have to pay to attend, but you do have to RSVP here. [Eaterwire]

DOWNTOWN— Instead of dealing with packed parking lots and long lines to get in on the bingo fun, head downtown. This 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]

ONION WIRE— Funny or insensitive? Satirical paper The Onion posts a phony Subway "Subtember 11" special. [The Onion]
