Surrounded by the works of classes past, pupils at Easely Amused create their own pieces of art under the tutelage of experienced instructors. Provided brushes whisper against canvas while students follow their teacher to create a painting that matches the evening’s template. Like driving directions from a poet, the works often include seasonal scenes, abstract swirls of color, and bright flowers. Painters bring their own beverages to enjoy during classes, the clicking glasses of wine and beer helping provide inspiration for art.

Beneath the Colorado sun, Jason Ballard stands holding a hammer, looking upon the half-finished home before him. As a green builder, Ballard takes pride in constructing homes designed for health and efficiency, but unfortunately, local suppliers often don’t have the products to match his passion. The dilemma prompts Ballard and a few friends to wonder: "What if we could get all the materials we're looking for under one roof?" Driven by this question, the founders of TreeHouse came together—some interested in sustainable building, some interested in cutting toxins out their lives, some fascinated by the money saved through energy efficiency—to amass an inventory of products that they would use or already were using in their own homes. The store's material experts score every item to meet rigorous health, performance, and sustainability standards, curating a catalog that ranges from insulation made of recycled denim to housewares made from bamboo veneer. Additionally, TreeHouse's home-improvement gurus demonstrate products at education stations, and host classes and events to teach DIY-minded homeowners how to undertake anything from remodels to digging a moat around the garage.
Hyde Park Bar & Grill's two locations serve as neighborhood hubs where patrons can devour comfort fare while enjoying local art and discussing the newest local news. The Duval Street location’s signature oversize fork marks the eatery for groups seeking a space to converse without having to yell over the clangor of clouds bumping into nearby skyscrapers. At the Westgate Boulevard location, a covered patio welcomes diners to dine among fireflies and savor the live music that's staged at least twice a week. The menu surveys classic southern and American comfort fare, such as chicken-fried steak, mac ‘n’ cheese, hand-cut french fries, and burgers made with hormone-free beef. Along with a multitude of local and international wines, Hyde Park Bar & Grill rolls out vegetarian, vegan, and gluten-free dishes, as well as an assortment of desserts baked in-house by the eatery's chefs.

When Ken Bradley, Cathy Grant, and Damian Gillen created The Company Theatre in 1993, they had one mission: to offer an live entertainment alternative to television or movies. Their lively adaptations of classic literature and popular stories have toured to theatres, schools, and churches all over Texas. No staging is too unconventional for the The Company Theatre: the troupe presents a condensed version of the complete works of Shakespeare with three fast-talking actors, and performs their production of “Charlotte’s Web” at an operating farm.
