Event Details


When: Every Thursday, 8PM (beginning 3/9)

Where: Little Woodrow’s Midtown, 2306 Brazos St., Houston, TX 77006

Note: Each Thursday, the Little Woodrow’s Turtle Master and his wranglers bring a group of feisty turtles into a ring to race in front of hundreds of cheering fans perched on bleachers (the Turtle race track has its own bleachers, and its own bar with 50 beers on tap). Fans pick their winning turtle by selecting the cards with the turtle’s funny names and race numbers. When it’s race time, Turtle Master Nick Menage, gets the crowd participating by selecting someone to start the race. The chosen volunteer gets to lift a bucket that releases the group of turtles that are perched on a pedestal, and off they go! The turtles are surprisingly fast and they scurry away from the pedestal. The first one to reach the outside of a circle on the turtle race mat, wins. Any fans holding that turtle’s card wins a commemorative koozie. Multiple races are run each night.
