READY FOR A GREAT WEEKEND?!
Welcome to GISH PICKS: CURATED CULTURE FOR KIDS AND ADULTS! I’m Sarah Gish, an info-preneur and culture sleuth who finds the unusual and cool in Houston each and every week. Join me as I shine a light on Houston gems and unique Houston fun. I love Houston and want to show you the people and the places and the events that make it great (see more about my wishes for that here). And I want to make it easy for you so I sort through the cornucopia of events offered in our wonderful city each weekend and I PICK only three each for families and adults to recommend to you. That way you’ll be all set when Friday hits!
We are the most diverse city in the country, not only because of the over 100 languages spoken here every day, but also because of the diversity of events offered and places to hang our (cowboy) hats. Please be sure to tell your friends about GISH PICKS – the more people who know about these unique cultural events, the more unique cultural events the organizations will offer us. Please also tell the orgs that I sent you. My business grows by word of mouth so I thank you for your continued support. Here’s to many more years of GISH PICKS!

I organize many events, such as labyrinth walks and workshops, so if you’d like to be informed of those before everyone else, please subscribe to my Gish Creative list here.
We are all about Super Bowl LI, aren’t we?! It’s here and there ain’t no stopping us now. If you’re not really into the Bowl, check out my non-football PICKS below. However, if you want to get into the thick of things, there are a few fun ways to jump in. The “NFL Experience” at the George R. Brown Convention Center features a pro football interactive theme park with participatory games, youth football clinics, merchandise from the NFL Shop, and autograph sessions with NFL players and Legends. Tickets for that start at $25. Over at Discovery Green, you can enjoy a free ongoing festival, Super Bowl Live, with live music and performances, interactive exhibits, great food, and a 90-foot tall virtual reality trip to Mars – plus the winter ice skating rink is still open. And for those of you who like to party sober-style, here’s a perfect event: the free-n-fun Sober Bowl Super Fest, which starts out with yoga at 11am (yes! yoga!) followed by music and big screen game watching. That party is at the brand new White Oak Music Hall, so it’s a great excuse for you to check out that venue.
Have a great weekend, love one another, please share this, and go IGNITE YOUR LIFE!
