Cool Culture for Kids and Adults in Houston

I like to introduce various cultures to our family but it can be difficult at times to share these with a youngster. However, here is a clever way to explore some Hispanic culture and enjoy a break from the day.

The Artisan Jewelery Bazaar will be held on Tuesday, May 4 from 5 - 8 pm at Under the Volcano, located at 2349 Bissonnet. This is a sale of Colombian and Mexican artwork and artisan jewelry with part of the proceeds benefiting "The Vagina Monologues" and La Rosa Womens' Shelter. While I don't advise taking children to the bar, this event provides a short break for adults and then an opportunity to talk about how the art and jewelry were created and how the pieces reflect the Colombian and Mexican culture. My daughter would love the jewelry and I appreciate the lessons about different cultures.

Please RSVP so the facility can make the necessary arrangements.
