(UPDATE: Lil Keke and Slim Thug will no longer be performing at the Turkey Leg Hut block party. On Tuesday, Turkey Leg Hut sent out a statement saying, “On behalf of the Turkey Leg Hut, as well as the artists, this decision was unfortunately beyond our control. We absolutely love and appreciate both Slim & Keke as they are both friends of the Turkey Leg Hut and thank them for their ongoing support of everything we do. There will definitely be future opportunities with them as we continue to grow our footprint in Houston & beyond!”)
Houston’s Slim Thug and Lil Keke will headline Turkey Leg Hut’s Festival and Block Party on March 27. The famed Third Ward restaurant is bringing back the block party, which closes off Almeda Road for two blocks in front of the venue, after taking a couple years off due to the pandemic. The restaurant estimates that more than 6,000 people attended their first block party in 2019.
