WHAT'S YOUR PICK THIS WEEKEND?
Greetings and welcome to GISH PICKS: A GUIDE TO CULTURAL ACTIVITIES FOR FAMILIES, a free weekly e-newsletter/blog I created as a service to the Houston community in 2003 in which I cull from the loads of activities in our city and pick three weekend events (“PICKS”) to recommend to parents, caregivers, and educators all over Houston. I’m a mom and am always looking for cultural – yet FUN! – events for my family and I am so happy to share them with YOU.
My business grows by word of mouth so please enjoy the events and please share this blog. And be sure to tell the organizations you visit that you heard about them from me. And if you’re in Facebooklandia, please sidle over there and like our GISH PICKS Facebook page and share it with your friends and family and elsewhere on social media, too.

It’s another busy weekend in H-Town so get your running shoes on! The biggest event – the one that makes Houston Houston and that rocks the world since we’re home to the largest art car community everywhere – is the Art Car Parade this Saturday, April 9 at 2pm. Check out my write-up below for more details. Two other events to check out this weekend are the Houston Music, Peace, and Justice Festival this Saturday, April 9, 2-9pm and two events presented by the Council on Recovery – “An Evening with Lisa Miller & Workshop for Clinicians” this Friday and Saturday.
It’s time to start getting organized for summer, so be sure to check out THE THE SUMMER BOOK® ONLINE: A GUIDE TO HOUSTON DAY CAMPS AND CLASSES FOR KIDS AND TEENS. It’s the largest and most accurate guide in Houston and you’re gonna love it when looking for camps! And, best of all, you can surf it from anywhere – while at the beach, when the kids are asleep, while in the carpool line…
This week’s VIDEO PICK is all about the poetry in honor of National Poetry Month. A group of teens, under the direction of one of my favorite slam poetry teachers, Emanuelee “Outspoken” Bean, presented their rhymes at Houston’s City Hall for the “Final Four” conclusion. What a way to represent! Enjoy this video by my friend Sara Selber and learn how basketball is really an analogy for LIFE.
