Take a load off and relax to the sweet, soothing, soul-feeding sounds of live jazz music 7 p.m. – 10 p.m. Tuesday Dec. 11 at GenuWine. It's open mic night as Jazz on the Northside takes the stage. If you want to kick up your heels, you can do that too -- swing and bop is also on the menu. Happy Hour specials on wine and beer all night.
The weather is certainly chillier, but we're Texans, and it's never too cold for ice cream! If you'd rather have something warm, you can do that too at Dairy Queen – Woodlands Parkway. Have a hot meal -- burgers, chicken strips, Tex-Mex. Whatever you choose, kids eat free with the purchase of any regularly priced combo meal during Family Night, 5 p.m. – 8 p.m. Wednesday Dec. 12.
Houston-area couple Thom and Nancy Binford have combined their artistic talents to create The Last Christmas Tree, a story about a "not-so-handsome tree" hoping to find a home Christmas Eve. Join them 11 a.m. – 12:30 p.m. Friday Dec. 14 at The Woodlands Children's Museum for a reading and meet-and-greet. Thom wrote the story and Nancy, a retired art teacher, illustrated the book, which speaks to anyone who has ever felt different or sad about not being chosen for a game, team or club. This will be a wonderful keepsake and addition to your family library.
