We are delighted to bring the Certified Infant Massage Teacher Course (CIMT) to exciting Houston, TX. This Accredited 3-day professional training, taught by Master Teacher Tina Allen, will be held at Pediatric Therapy Network.
In Houston there is always something exciting to do. Start your day out for breakfast at the Breakfast Klub. Catfish and grits, wings and waffles top a tempting array of breakfast favorites from around the country at this cozy comfort food zone.
This come-as-you-are hot spot seems to always have a line, but it moves fast and just serves to build anticipation as you watch the waddling diners leave with a satisfied grin. The signature dish is waffles and wings, an unlikely combo that goes surprisingly well together. The green eggs and ham features diced green peppers.
Or for some offbeat fun, check out The Beer Can House. Named one of America's top 50 roadside attractions in Time magazine (2010), The Beer Can House is a folk art gallery/workshop consisting of more than 50,000 beer cans.
The story goes that John Milkovisch hated to throw anything away, and after years of drinking, both his attic and garage were bursting with empty beer cans. In 1968, he got the bright idea that the cans would make good house siding, and a folk art legend was born. Milkovisch didn't stop with the house. He blanketed the lawn with concrete blocks inlaid with bits of colorful glass. He drilled holes in the redwood fence, filling the spaces with marbles. With the cans’ pull-tabs, he created clinking curtains that he hung from the front porch and eaves. More beer cans, wire and found objects became mobiles and lawn art. Altogether, Milkovisch spent 18 years decorating.
For downtown dining and entertainment destination Bayou Place is the place to be. Western-themed PBR Houston brings country dancing and a little bull-riding action while Lucie's Liquors offers an upscale sports bar experience, Vegas-style. Retro beach concept Shark Bar and whiskey bar Chapel Spirits debuted in May. The Blue Fish, a Dallas outpost serving up fresh sushi.
The Verizon Wireless Theater stages a variety of live concerts, and Hard Rock Cafe has long been a Theater District staple. Samba Grille offers up a diverse lunch menu and Brazilian-style rodizio service during the dinner hour.
If you’re not in the mind for a party evening, try catching a movie at 14 Pews microcinema. The small cinema space reopened in August 2010 in the old white wooden church at 800 Aurora and is already garnering praise for its innovative and sometimes provocative programming. This is the place for independent films and documentaries, as well as community events and small film festivals.
Ready for something to eat, try Burger Guys. Set in west Houston, the biz turns out gourmet burgers touting everything from Texas’ Kobe-style Akaushi beef and fried duck-eggs to Fancy Lawnmower Ale Mustard and Tobasco-mash aioli. Marques and Mazzu mix up more than just stellar sandwiches, too, also taking on Chicago-style hot dogs, house-made ice cream and old-fashioned drinks made with Imperial sugar. Expect a menu loaded with creative burger varieties—named and inspired by U.S. and international cities—like the golden-beet-and-egg-topped Sydney Burger or the Saigon with butter, pate, pickled carrot, radish, jalapeno and cilantro.
For dessert make a stop at Chocolate Bar. This store is packed with clever little novelties--cell phones, hand tools, cars--all created in luxuriously rich chocolate. Through a large window at the rear, you can look into the preparation area where all this chocolate magic is concocted. But the heart of the operation is a marvelous ice cream cooler with a dozen stunning, made-on-site flavors that use chocolate to varying degrees. Patrons stand four deep to buy these frozen treasures.
Along with the shelves lined with assorted chocolate oddities, there's also a traditional candy counter filled with by-the-piece treats, like chocolate-dipped slices of fruit and bonbons. There's even a stunning trompe l'oeil "pizza" that's so realistic, you can almost smell the pepperoni--except it's made entirely of multicolored chocolate. Also count on ever-changing displays of holiday-specific gift baskets.
Come to Houston and experience the fun with us!
