The Look Ahead: Photos at the Houston Zoo, Veins in the Gulf, and the March Fourth Marching Band

Well, hippitty, dippitty. That’s another major holiday down this year. We’re flyin’ through time. Or is it slippin’, slippin’, slippin’… ? While I try to figure out the meaning of what I just wrote, I invite you to dig into the events below. Have at it and happy Monday to you!

Oh, on a side note: who ran the Green Run 10k/5k this weekend? Tea and Richard were itching to participate but time just wouldn’t permit. Good course? Good weather? Congrats to all who participated.

The Houston Zoo tells it like this, “Ticket holders will be treated to a continental breakfast, animal enrichment photo ops and the opportunity to roam around Zoo grounds, including the African Forest, all day until our normally scheduled closing time.

Guests will get the opportunity to take photographs of the Zoo’s grounds in the early morning light as well as the animal exhibits as they are being prepared for the Zoo day.

Depending on the times and temperatures, not all animals will be out on exhibit immediately, however our keepers do their best to have a variety of species on display as early as possible. Regardless, there’s always great stuff to shoot!”

The press release reveals, “Filmmakers Elizabeth Coffman and Ted Hardin will host a Q&A following the film, and the audience will be treated to fresh Gulf Coast shrimp courtesy of the Shrimp Boat Projects and samples from Saint Arnold Brewing Company.

Through interviews with fishermen, engineers, poets, and scientists, “Veins in the Gulf” will bear witness as Louisiana residents confront the mortality of their culture, and as a community tries to solve its environmental crises. Partake in this exploration of southern culture and discover where great American literature, music, seafood and oil have come from for the past century.

This is what the folks over at the Last Concert Cafe are saying, “MarchFourth: a Date, a Band, a Command. A little slice of burning man comes to the Cafe. The spectacle is mind-blowing but also family-friendly. This is an early show, pre-Hightailers, so come out with kids of all ages.”
