White Linen Night in The Heights started in 2006 at the suggestion of New Orleans native and then Hurricane Katrina transplants Chris Thayer and his wife, Kay, who had opened a boutique on 19th Street when they were displaced by the storm. The event was patterned after a similar event in The French Quarter Arts district in New Orleans where residents came out dressed in their white linen finest to see local art. The Thayers and the Heights First Saturday group organized the event as a way to promote interest and traffic to 19th street so local businesses could thrive in the hot Houston summer. White Linen Night in the Heights is open to the general public with no admission fee.
We are excited to be part of the Houston Heights and the traditions that the Houston Heights has bestowed upon us. As our 1st year in the Heights, we have been overly grateful for all the support that we have been acredited by the surrounding neighborhoods.
On August 5th, Join us for our White Linen in the Heights Party.
