Houston - The holiday is especially wild in Houston, Texas this year as some bars and businesses are celebrating their first big holiday night since COVID-19 restrictions were lifted in the state. “It’s been a year since we’ve been locked up and it’s been nice to get out and about,” said a Houston resident Jason Griffin, who decided to head out early. “We thought that this would be a good time to kind of have a few drinks and head home before it gets crazy.” Today is also the one week mark since Gov. Greg Abbott lifted the state’s mask mandate and allowed businesses to open at 100% capacity, effectively making it so that business owners can decide whether to require face coverings or not. “It’s been a lot less people than it’s been before but some people wearing masks, some people are not,” said a man named Bud, who had a green mask to match his outfit.
