The 58th annual THETA CHARITY ANTIQUES SHOW will be held, November 18-21, 2010, at the George R. Brown Convention Center. Considered to be one of the top three antiques shows in the country, TCAS has donated over $5.9 million dollars to medical research, cultural arts, and educational endeavors in the Houston area. This year’s show, Chaired by Vicki Lange, will have over 50 premier antiques dealers from around the globe, selling the finest in antiques from the 17th through the 20th centuries.
Besides roaming the vendor booths, that are elegantly decorated, the show has forum speakers with experts in design and antiques, a Can-Can party, and the return of the highly successful Appraisal Day, where you can have your treasures evaluated, by 7 highly qualified antiques appraisers on Saturday, November 20, from 11 am -3 pm. New this year is Antiques 101 - An Education for the New Collector, November 20, from 5:00 - 7:00 pm. Enjoy wine and cheese, a brief symposium on collecting, and a scavenger hunt throughout the Show. Going along with the new collector theme, is the New Collector Booth, where the exhibitors will exhibit more affordable antiques.

All Show proceeds go to charity, of course, so it's guilt free shopping!

The Zimmerman hospitality dynasty continues with sons, Mark and Dan’ s new venue,
Zimm’s Little Deck. A Louisiana/French-inspired wine, bar, bistro and petanque court, set in an elegant, yet relaxed atmosphere. HHH was the first to try their scrumptious menu items, created by chef Jeramie Robison, a Louisiana native, and an alum of the Mansion on Turtle Creek. You can choose from gumbo, po-boys, rich boys, cheap wine or expensive wine, while watching the games outside. It’s nestled between downtown and midtown, so you can go in your jeans or your tux.
