After the 3 rides in 3 days, things didnt slow down. I completed 3 more rides through the rest of the month of December and all were successful.
The first was Friday, December 16th for an Ugly Christmas Sweater & Christmas Lights Tour of Houston. I picked up the group of 14 out in Katy and we started by stopping by one of the more intricate Christmas Lights setups in town. The house was off of Pin Oak and has now celebrated 10 years of synchronized lights around their house. In fact, the whole block participates in the synchronized lights!
After we drove around Katy, we made our way to dinner at El Tiempo on Richmond Ave. Once dinner was finished we visited the River Oaks area to look at more Christmas lights. River Oaks is known for their extravagant displays and is a must if you want to view Christmas Lights in Houston, TX.
About an hour later, it was time for some bar hopping! We visited Clutch & Kung Fu Saloon on Washington Ave as well as Irish Cowboy in Midtown.
Our final stops were in The Heights as we took in some of the lights in that area before we made a quick pit stop at Little Woodrows. Finally we called it a night and wrapped up by 1:45am. I think I finally got the bus back by 2:45am.

Our next ride was on Thursday, December 22nd, as we continued the Ugly Sweater theme. We picked everyone up at the Club Quarters Hotel in Downtown Houston before venturing to Chuy's Mexican Restaurant. After dinner we went back through River Oaks to look at Christmas Lights and cruise around.
We wound up going to the Gingerman in Rice Village and following it up by going to Clutch on Washington Ave. The group didnt stay too long there before they wanted to go ahead and head back to their hotel and call it a night. We ended the night around 12:30pm.
Our 3rd and final ride of December came on Friday, December 30th. This was for Windsor's 30th Birthday Party in Galveston, TX. We picked the group up around 9:45pm and made our 1st stop at the Tremont Rooftop Bar. After about an hour, we picked the group up, drove up and down the seawall for about 30 minutes before heading back to The Strand and making our 2nd stop at Yaga's.
The night ended at Bubba's Sports Bar on Tiki Island before we dropped everyone back off
