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!
A note about the social media for GISH PICKS: please LIKE our Facebook page for family PICKS and our Facebook page for adult PICKS. Be sure to click “See first” in the dropdown menu on the LIKE button so you won’t miss a post! And please follow me on Instagram and Twitter. You’ll get all my CULTURE PICKS and more that way. And there’s one last way to stay in touch with me! 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.
It's a busy time of year (and is about to get busier!) so be sure to take a break. If you are a parent of small kiddos and need a break, learn about the Children’s Museum’s “Mommy Mingle” in this week’s VIDEO PICK, which is a time for kids to play and the adults to relax and chat. The next one is next Wednesday, October 5 from 10am-noon. GISH PICKS is the media sponsor of the event so I’ll be there armed with info about Houston for families – stop by and say howdy! The Children’s Museum is busy this month in their “Tot Spot” with fun activities such as making fabric pumpkins and monster puppets every Thursday from 1-3pm. For adults that need a break, I highly recommend checking out what the Ruah Center has to offer. I recently took a tour because I will be hosting a labyrinth walk there next year and I was grateful to see such a beautiful and peaceful space in the heart of Houston. And, finally, if your teens need a break, sign them up for the relaxing “Mindfulness for Young Adults” course that starts Sunday, October 16. All the details about that are below.
Have a great weekend, love one another, please share this, and go IGNITE YOUR LIFE!
