The Look Ahead: Luck of the Draw, TYP Happy Hour and Mickey Gilley and Johnny Lee in Pearland
Happy Summer Solstice. It’s the longest day of the year. Let’s hope the workday doesn’t follow along those same lines. We’re just happy that there is a sprinkling of rain here and there across Houston. The plants at my house are on their last leg (I mean “stem”).
With a robust list of artists being blindly auctioned off, tomorrow is your day to support the DiverseWorks cause. Buy your ticket, wait for your number to be called, select your artwork. It’s as simple (and as fun) as that. Fortune benefits the bold, and the bold shell out the big bucks to get their favorite piece to display proudly at home.

When: Thursday, June 23rd | 5:30PM until 7:30PM

It’s elbow rubbing time. Tired of the old guard telling you what to do? Soon enough, you will be them. Time to meet your peers that you will be next to you changing the world. Make it out to the Alden Hotel Houston to sip cocktails, talk business and plan the Texas Young Professionals takeover. But while you’re at it, you’ll be helping out the charity in the spot light: Big Brother Big Sisters.

I’m not sure how I came across this calendar item, but I’m sure glad I did. It’s going to be an outdoor gitdown this weekend in Pearland at Billy’s Hall. Mickey Gilley and Johnny Lee being supported by the Cody Rosier Band. Don’t bring your pets, but bring lawnchairs and whatever you plan on drinking. This affair is BYOB.
