A wake will be held from 2-3:30 p.m. Saturday at the Stag's Head Pub for Angela Mullan Jenkins, who passed away Thursday from breast cancer complications.
Jenkins came to Houston from Northern Ireland over 30 years ago and worked briefly for a division of Baker-Hughes before beginning her career with British Investments at the Richmond Arms. She is probably best known as the manager of the popular West Alabama pub and music venue The Ale House, which she ran for over a decade until it was razed in June 2001. She then moved over to open and manage the Stag's Head.
During her tenure at The Ale House, she began booking many of the edgiest acts in the city and state. She was an early supporter of the seminal Texas rock band True Believers, who often slept on her couches and floors before they found fame. Her impact on the music Houston scene in the '80s and '90 is incalculable.
Jenkins is survived by her husband Mike and son Connor. They have requested that in lieu of flowers, donations be made to the National Breast Cancer Foundation or the Angela Jenkins Medical Trust. Remember, October (or "Pinktober") is Breast Cancer Awareness Month.
