"You know how you have that uncontrollable urge to sneak into people's houses to take a look around and eat lunch on their front lawns?" writes John Grindley.

"This time, you can do it with friends! And downtown! And it's legal! Rendevous on the Red's Downtown Tour of Homes is on Sunday!"

Participation: be 21 or over and bring a form of photo I.D. to 617 Texas Street (Robinson Film Center) on Sunday, beginning at 2 p.m. You will be signed up and on one of the comfortable iShuttle vans to begin your tour. You will get a map and information about each of the tour sites, which include:

• 600 block of Texas- a Drive-by
• 824 Texas Avenue (Bohemian chic)
• 826 Texas Avenue (Let your imagination run wild!)
• 1023/1035 Texas Avenue (Hidden secrets)
• 710 Crockett Street (an artist’s studio)
• 627 Crockett- a Drive-By
• 301 Crockett Street (2 units in Lee Hardware)

Afterwards, return to the Robinson Film Center for snacks and door prizes. The tour is free and will be held rain or shine. Not all buildings are ADA-accessible and many include stairs.
