  • The Mad Potter
    For Meredith McCord, looking at a piece of pottery brings back decades worth of memories. McCord started The Mad Potter in 1998, and since those early days, she's used her kiln to immortalize countless special moments. She traveled to hospitals to capture the footprints of newborns, helped a young man create a dessert plate with the words "Will you marry me?" emblazoned across it, and auctioned off items for charity. Yet some of her fondest memories center on the day-to-day interactions with customers, specifically when they return to pick up their fired pieces and utter three words of amazement: "I did that?" The Mad Potter has since expanded into three Houston-area locations, where children and adults come to paint their own works of art or create replicas of their ancient ancestors' garden gnomes. More than 500 bisqueware items line the shelves of each studio, including coffee mugs, plates, and figurines. Staffers then help visitors select from more than 54 available colors of paint and supply them with everything else they might need, including brushes and stencils. The staff can even take things over and create more intricate designs?while still consulting closely with the customer. Whatever route a person chooses, there's always time for a sip of wine or beer; the River Oaks location sells wine and beer while Bellaire and Woodway maintain a BYOB policy.

  • The Menil Collection
    John and Dominique de Menil began collecting art in the 1940s, shortly after they had relocated from France to the United States. It didn't take long for the couple to amass nearly 16,000 paintings, sculptures, drawings, photographs, and rare books. Tired of tripping over Byzantine statues on the way to the kitchen, the de Menils decided to share their collection with the world. The result is The Menil Collection, which opened in 1987 and has since become a fixture of Houston's Museum District. Here, visitors can browse priceless artworks and artifacts with origins that span the globe. With its minimalistic exterior and sweeping stretches of glass, the building itself is also something of a masterpiece. This is no accident?Dominque de Menil made sure that its design allowed for plenty of natural light to enhance visitors' experience and help the artworks grow big and strong.

  • Houston Arboretum & Nature Center
    At the Houston Arboretum & Nature Center, you might spy budding photographers snapping shots of herons in the wetlands. Situated on the western edge of Memorial Park, the 155-acre nature preserve acts as a sanctuary from the busy city that surrounds it. Visitors can walk along 5 miles of trails, which wind past forest, meadows, wetlands, and ponds. The nature advocates at Houston Arboretum & Nature Center hope the arboretum serves not only as refuge from the urban bustle, but also as a constantly changing outdoor classroom. In the Discovery Room, for instance, interactive exhibits help young explorers learn about the arboretum?s diverse ecosystems. Classes and workshops range from home composting to breaking into the birdhouse-real-estate market. The arboretum also offers nature camps for kids, as well as other special events year-round.

  • Brazos Bookstore
    Brazos Bookstore At one point in time, if you walked into Brazos Bookstore and asked for help finding authors such as Larry McMurtry and Donald Barthelme, the staff may have simply pointed and said, “He’s right there.” Karl Killian opened Brazos in 1974 as a means to cultivate Houston’s literary scene, and his bookshop drew voracious readers and even seasoned writers to its well-stocked shelves. It was so beloved, in fact, that when Killian retired in 2006 a group of 27 Houstonians purchased the bookstore to ensure it remained independently owned. Today, Brazos continues to feed the public’s literary lust with a smartly curated selection of fiction, non-fiction, and children’s books, as well as in-store readings from accomplished authors and their favorite pencils. The shop's commitment to letters expands beyond its walls, though; Brazos supports cultural projects such as Inprint and the Academy of American Poets.

  • Vino Artino
    Owner Connie Broome envisions Vino Artino as a place "all about art, friends, and fun," a concept she solidifies through relaxing, hands-on classes. Sessions are led by artists with degrees from art and design schools across the South. As they swill any libations they wish to bring, pupils sit at tabletop easels and follow step-by-step instructions to re-create scenes appropriate for a girls' night out, a Mother's Day outing, or a hide-the-hole-in-the-living-room-wall party. Though each class is grounded in a particular painting, the studio urges artists to put their own stamp on the finished product by using different colors, adding fun flourishes, and choosing their own canvas size.
