Space Cowboy at the Heights House Hotel will begin the first of many Astros-themed events, with an Opening Day party in collaboration with Apollo Media featuring a 17-foot big screen, tacos inspired by Astros players, an Astros ticket raffle (win tickets to Astros vs. Toronto Blue Jays on April 23) and drink specials.

The event takes place at Space Cowboy on Thursday, April 7, 2022, 6 p.m. - midnight and is located at 100 W. Cavalcade St., Houston, TX 77009.

Here's what to expect: Astros fans celebrating the start of MLB season; Astros-inspired tacos including the “Altuve” (named after Jose Altuve; featuring Venezuelan pulled beef, black refried beans, red bell pepper pico de gallo, sweet plantain), “Breggy Bomb” (Alex Bregman; New Mexican green chile chicken, tempura fried avocado, shredded red cabbage, queso) and “La Piña” (Yuli Gurriel; roasted citrus pork, black refried beans, shredded red cabbage, pineapple pico de gallo); 17-foot TV screen on a pool-adjacent 6,000-square-foot patio at the tropical hotel bar.

About Space Cowboy: Located at 100 W. Cavalcade St. in the recently renovated Heights House Hotel, Space Cowboy was the first concept by owner and beverage director Greg Perez as part of the Night Moves Hospitality collective. A tropical take on the classic hotel bar, the concept serves fruit-forward boozy cocktails led by Bar Manager Sam Ruiz and Mexican-American fare by Chef Adriana Maldonado. Featuring a pool-adjacent 6,000-square-foot patio, Space Cowboy is part staycation getaway, part local watering hole. The bar is open from noon to 2 a.m., seven days a week.

According to multiple reports, the Astros are finalizing a deal to sign former White Sox first baseman Jose Abreu to a free agent contract.

The 35-year-old first baseman finished last season hitting .304 with 15 home runs, 75 RBI, and a .824 OPS. Abreu provides plenty of pop, with five seasons with at least 30 homers in his career.

This move most likely comes at the expense of Houston Astros first baseman and local favorite, Yuli Gurriel, who is also a free agent this offseason. On the other hand, the Astros had to upgrade at DH, and maybe Gurriel could still return to the team in a utility role or back at first base.

We'll update the details on Abreu's contract as the information becomes available.
