Entertainment In Houston

To see first class entertainment in Houston, locals make the trek to the Theater District from all points outside of the beltway. Especially during the annual Open House in the Theater District and you best believe, there's plenty of fun and enjoyment.

Houston has permanent professional resident companies in all of the major performing arts disciplines. And we lay claim to being the only city in America, that has a collective open house involving all of these groups and their multiple venues.

Visitors to the Theater District Open House get an open door to opera, ballet, music and theater once a year in an event that is growing in attendance. Throughout the day you can checkout backstage tours, performances, and more!

The Houston Symphony takes a break from performing concerts throughout the world, to be on hand to enchant the the home crowd with a rousing performance. All of the performing arts organizations from Theater Under The Stars to the Alley Theater like to show off for the folks.

When you're through absorbing all that refined cuhlcha, there is plenty of entertainment in Houston holed up inside of the Bayou Place entertainment complex. It's a place where you can get your groove on at the Hard Rock Cafe, Slick Willies or just chill at the any of the restaurants and movies to let your hair back down.

Mixers and Elixers

The HMNS is the place to mingle, sip and slip in your best dance moves on Friday Nights this summer.

The event is called Mixers and Elixers. They feature a reception in Grand Entry Hall of the museum at 6 p.m. with a live DJ and a cocktail. Doors open at 7 p.m. for the live band, dancing under the dinosaurs, cash bar, and complimentary appetizers.

It's the perfect party for professionals who are tired of the club scene. It's where the hip members of the science club meet. This social set kicks off every Friday night this summer. Hitting this scene is a sure sign of intelligence!

Entertainment In Houston

Thursday won't just be a day packed with entertainment in Houston at the Children's Museum. It'll be a good time to get the littlest Houstonian caught up on their immunizations shots for back to school.
That's right. The Children's Museum is hosting the first-come, first-served free immunizations this week in conjunction with the Texas Children's Hospital. Now you already know that the place will be packed and the lines will be lo--ong for this Houston-wide event, which means you better get there early.

How about a 21 mouse click salute for the good doctors who'll be on hand to provide this service free of charge.

After braving the doctors you can take the the tots through the museum to soothe their nerves. Mothers will get a chance to hear some up to date info on healthy lunch choices, tips on nutrition, portion control, and decreasing risk of diabetes with food choices and other relevant nutrition topics.

Best of all in addition to the entertainment, Houston families can also enjoy an array of healthier, traditional food samplings and receive free recipe books; giveaways and prizes at the event.

It's Showtime at MFA Houston

MFA Houston has a great way to escape the afternoon heat, catch a classic during the matinee with the Marx Brother's "Duck Soup." You probably have seen some of their "oldie but goodie" films; however, this is one that's worth skipping out on work around 2pm to see, a slapstick, muscial and comedy all rolled into one.

The small state of Freedonia is in a financial mess. To make matters worse Sylvania, the neighboring state sends inept spies aka Marx brothers, Chicolini and Pinky to obtain top secret information, creating even more chaos! The plot thickens when leaders from the two countries become embroiled in a romantic dispute and a declare war on each other.

The fun doesn't stop there! Houston's own Art Guys are stopping by the MFA, the shameless self promoters will present and discuss a documentary of their compiled works over the past 25 years.

If you really prefer something a little more dramatic and adventurous, then you can head a few block west of the MFA Houston to the Menil. They've teamed up with the good folks from the Aurora Picture show to host a "Movies in the Park."

The show Du jour is a trail mix of western flavored cinema, "A Ride Through TV Westerns". If you savor highlights and short excerpts from some of the classic bang bang, shoot'em-up westerns. Come take a nostalgic journey into westerns golden era, when men let their gunbelts sag instead of their pants.

Did I mention how much MFA Houston and the Menil are charging for these cultural events? Nada! With that kind of price tag you'll be hard pressed to find an excuse for not getting your "cuhlcha on" this week in Houston.
