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!

Hasn’t it been just so crazy with all that’s going on with the election? I have had a hard time concentrating with all the newsbreaks and worries and excitement about what could be this time next week. When it’s all just too much for me, I follow one of the pieces of advice I dole out for my IGNITE YOUR LIFE! art project, which is “Commune with nature.” I love to get outside and explore and I recommend that you and yours do the same if you also need a break. My five fave parks are Miller Outdoor Theatre – which has only two more weekends of shows (including Houston native Tommy Tune this weekend!) – Discovery Green; Memorial Park; Hermann Park; and Terry Hershey Park. If you’re feeling really intrepid, get all the way out of town and drive to lovely Galveston while the weather is perfect!
Learn all about Miller Outdoor Theatre in this week’s VIDEO PICK. It was founded in 1923 and has been Houston’s premiere spot for free and fresh fun ever since.
Have a great weekend, love one another, please share this, and go IGNITE YOUR LIFE!
