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! Speaking of Friday, please join me for my weekly PICKS-ON-WHEELS in my Phoenix Rising Art Car. Each Friday at noon, I’ll be at a different cool place – meeting people, introducing what they do and their mission, and wandering around. It’s my way of bringing GISH PICKS to life! Tune in on Fridays at noon here. It is TOTALLY fun and I’d love for you to see them and join in by liking and commenting!
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!

Want to get to know yourself better? Then please join me for “What’s Your Purpose?” this Saturday, March 11 at Body Mind & Soul. Get more information and register here. I would LOVE to see you and I promise you’ll leave much more connected to yourself and your soul’s desires.
Yesterday was International Women’s Day, celebrated annually on March 8. It’s a much-needed holiday to honor women around the world, many of whom still don’t have equal rights or equal pay. Because of this, the folks at the Women’s March on Washington suggested women wear red and participate in “A Day Without A Woman.” March 8 is also a traditional day to kick off Women’s History Month so I want to share with you a few ways you can enjoy that. Check out the NASA films that they upload each week focusing on women’s history here (they just wrapped up a series on African American history). You can take a three-hour “Women’s History Tour” with Houston Historical Tours. You can watch the Houston Roller Derby team in a game on Saturday, March 18. You can participate in the social media campaign #FiveWomenArtists, created by the National Museum of Women in the Arts and supported locally by the Museum of Fine Arts, Houston. And…this one’s easy: go out to a meal with your girlfriends and just chat, laugh, hang out. And you can do other things together: play games, help at a homeless shelter, do crafts – whatever! Just have fun and celebrate being a woman – this month and always.
Have a great weekend, love one another, please share this, and go IGNITE YOUR LIFE!
