Never again will you have to utter the words, “there is nothing going on in Houston”! Each week, we will bring you five swanky (and hand-picked) events that are sure to keep your social life in check. From art shows to culinary festivals, speakeasies, concerts, live performances, and pop-up shops, there is always something to do and to get into in H-town! Check out the fun things to do in Houston this week:
The Hip Hop Nutcracker (Thursday, November 30th)
The perfect outing for the entire family this holiday season, The Hip Hop Nutcracker, a contemporary re-imagination of Tchaikovsky’s timeless classic, sets out on a third national tour following the success of two previous sold-out tours. This show takes a modern twist of Tchaikovsky’s “The Nutcracker” combining hip music and dance choreography. This is not a ballet, but a hip hop version of the classic.
Head out for a day of good times, good music, cold drinks, and great food at the 7th Annual Tamale Festival! The entire family can enjoy a day of fun, and of course, a ton of tamales! In additional to tasty tamales, they will offer fresh-made tacos, Texas BBQ, Chinese food, and all types of fun festival foods like fried Oreos, kabobs, and turkey legs.
Over 120 emerging artists will feature their work at The Pancakes & Booze Art Show, an alternative underground art and music movement. The event will feature local artists on display, live body painting, cocktails, an all you-can-eat pancake bar, and live DJ’s.
Time to get those fab finds and fun holiday gifts, and we have got just the place….CultureMap Holiday Pop-up Shop! This curated holiday boutique will showcase 25 vendors and retailers with everything from home goods to fabulous finds for the kids.
