HPB_bdg_logo_neAbout Frame Dance’s next performance: Bayou Greenway Day on April 4

 

We hope you will join us at an exciting new community event from the Houston Parks Board: Bayou Greenway Day 2015 presented by Noble Energy! This free, day-long event will offer families the chance to walk, bike, run, stroll, play and paddle between park sites along Brays Bayou Greenway in the East End.

 

Event “hubs” in Mason Park, Spurlock Park, Gragg Park and Fonde Park – and the Brays Bayou Greenway trail in-between – will host fun activities for all ages. You will be able to start at any of these locations, enjoying activities and exploring the trails that connect the parks.

 

Activities will include 5K fun run/walk; bike rides, rentals and decorating; Zumba classes and dance performances; an interactive campsite; kayaking (for a small fee); giveaways and more!

 

Frame Dance will perform a work that travels along the bayou with elaborate time-lapse costumes by Ashley Horn.

 

Come experience the transformation happening along Houston’s bayous as part of Bayou Greenways 2020! Visit www.bayougreenwayday.org for additional information and an event map. Most activities free; April 4, 10 a.m. to 3 p.m.  The Framers perform at noon starting at Mason Park.

 

Bayou Greenway Day 2015 is a project of the Houston Parks Board in collaboration with the Mayor’s Office of Special Events, the Houston Parks and Recreation Department, and the office of Council Member Robert Gallegos.

024 Grille 

 

A modern twist on classic American cuisine. Our culinary team crafts a unique menu, with an emphasis on local, seasonal fare, including Texas prime steaks and seafood from the Gulf. Located in the prestigious 024 zip code and in the heart of the Memorial City District, adjacent to the thriving Energy Corridor, 024 Grille additionally offers four intimate private dining rooms, a sophisticated wine list and a signature cocktail menu.

Buca di Beppo

 

Buca Di Beppo is the Perfect Party Venue for all Your Special Occasions. When it comes to celebrations, Buca is known as party central! Our hearty Italian dishes are served family-style, making them perfect for sharing. Plus, the eclectic décor, lively music and engaging staff, all add to the fun. From a communion, anniversary and holiday party to a prom dinner, military event and retirement banquet, throwing a great party is what Buca does best!

 

Eddie V’s

 

Seafood is what we’re known for, but our specialty is excellence. Fish arrive daily from pristine waters around the world including Swordfish from Block Island, Scallops from Georges Banks, and Yellow Fin Tuna from the Caribbean. USDA Prime steaks are hand cut and specially aged for over 28 days to ensure peak flavor. Devotion to excellence is the guiding principal in all that we do. From making fresh tortillas by hand daily for our lobster tacos to including a full half pound of Jumbo Lump crab meat in our crab cakes, we strive to go above and beyond in every step of preparation.

 

Fleming’s

 

Founded in 1998 by restaurateurs Paul Fleming and Bill Allen, the first Fleming’s opened in Newport Beach, California. The vision was to create a unique steakhouse experience with an emphasis on generous hospitality, an inviting atmosphere and the very finest aged USDA Prime beef.

In addition to inspired service and expertly prepared Prime Steak, our founders focused on an exceptional selection of wines for Guests to explore. The Fleming’s 100® — our award-winning collection of 100 wines by the glass — was born.

 

Seasons 52

 

Seasons 52 is a fresh grill and wine bar that provides our guests with a fresh dining experience. Our restaurant offers a seasonally inspired menu, an award-winning international wine list, knowledgeable and approachable service and a casually sophisticated ambiance that feels comfortable and inviting.

Should we have a slumber party?

Should we have a slumber party?

We have the exciting opportunity tomorrow MORNING, December 2, to do an online fundraising campaign where your donations are eligible to be matched dollar for dollar!  Set your alarms.

The catch is, there are limited funds coming from the match, so we must donate EARLY– right at 9am CST– on December 2nd to get the full match.  The match happens as soon as you donate.  
You give $50, Frame Dance receives $100. 

If you’re not so into the slumber party, I suggest setting an alarm, and then going to Power2Give.  

We are turning 5 this year, so we made a video in celebration of our first five years, featuring a few of the Little Framers!

Warm thanks from Frame Dance.  We need you to keep making art in Houston and beyond. 

Lydia and the Framers
