Trieu is the owner of Three Hearts Apparel, a baby clothing and accessories company that sells primarily at outdoor markets like The Market at Sawyer Yards, where I met Trieu.

Heights Theater presents. Ezra Charles is Houston's most acclaimed piano player, winning the Houston Press Award seven times for Best Keyboardist while fronting his band. "The Story of Boogie-Woogie" is his new theatrical show that traces the history of one of America's favorite musical forms from its Texas origins to world-wide fame, while he illustrates with renditions of many classic examples from the Masters.

Dear Tabby, We adopted a puppy over the summer and my kids enjoyed playing and taking care of her. Now that school is starting, I’m worried that the change in routine will upset the puppy. What can we do to ensure a smooth back-to-school season for our pooch? Bummed About Back To School in Brookesmith Dear Bummed, You’re right. While back to school can spell the return of structure and good habits for humans, it can be a lonely, confusing time for you pet--especially a pet who is new to a family with children. Instead of lazy mornings at home, spent with the pets, now the kids are rushing out the door before the sun is up and often aren’t home until the sun is setting. This spells long, boring days for a dog who has only known long walks, outside time and snuggling all … [Read more...] about Is your dog ready for Back-to-School?
