We get asked quite often what to do or where to eat, so with a little inspiration from a fellow colleague, here’s the first post on what to do this weekend! And just like what you find in our printed magazine, this is curated by us. Hope you enjoy and are never left wondering what to do.
The FAMOUS artsy Pop Shop America is having their biggest art market in Houston once again in a new location in downtown, GreenStreet. The festival runs three days: On the opening night a Preview Party will take place at 6pm, open for the public. Friday expect a lot of fun and a chic fashion show featuring Danny Nguyen Couture, Jamel Hawk, DATA-MOS, and 8 Palms. The first 25 in line will receive a goodie bag, DJ Fredster will keep the beat up all night, and Charli Sol will have complimentary face painting. Saturday and Sunday the fun will continue with goodie bags, modern handmade craft shopping, art exhibitions, vintage, live art and art activities. This pop-up is super-unique since all event-goers receive free beauty bar demos, free DIYs, tasty bites, live music and best of all, everything is LOCAL! Purchase your pass here; it is good all weekend.
