Although FOMO (Fear of Missing out) is a very real phenomenon for some, EVENTBRITE is encouraging all of us to GOMO (Get Out More Often) in 2016. With Eventbrite, you can find local and national events that you’re interested in going to (some are free), and create and sell tickets to your own events as well.
So, in the spirit of GOMO, I thought I would share some ways that I plan on GOMO, this Spring/Summer! I think you should plan on trying a few of these yourself!
Attend a Houston Astro’s Game.

The Astro’s had an amazing season last year and are already off to a great start. Their home season opener is Monday April 11 and I was there, cheering them on! For ticketing and game information, please click here.
Visit a new restaurant, brewery or beer garden.
Axelrad has the coolest vibe. Not only do they have lots of beers on tap, but they serve wine. A WIN for the lady who doesn’t drink beer.
I had to snap a pic of their beer taps. They are beautiful works of art.
Houston has so many options when it comes to great food and fine spirits. But Axelrad is the coolest new spot.
“Axelrad is all about celebrating Houston, being outside, and relaxing.
Conceived as a community-gathering place offering beer, wine, drinks, Luigi’s pizza, live music, and the city’s only hammock grove, Axelrad aims to be a place for all.
The bar’s interior is housed within a 100-year-old renovated building, originally a grocery store built by David and Gertrude Axelrad. Artists added to the beautiful historic interior with tap handles by Venezuelan-based Maria Rangel, seating by New Living’s HTX Made, and textiles by Austin-based Nido.
Axelrad’s garden features plantings by organic nursery, The Ground Up, a variety of video art pieces, film screenings, live music, events, festivals, and more. Expansive outdoor and indoor spaces are suitable for gatherings large and small. Plenty of bike and car parking is located on site, and METRORail’s Red Line Ensemble Station is just a few blocks away.
The project’s design, including concept, interior, and branding, was done as a collaboration between Gin Braverman, Evan O’Neil, Adam Brackman, and Monte Large. Gage Design provided architectural and construction services.” (http://www.axelradbeergarden.com/about/)

This Spring/Summer, Bank of America, will be prsenting 3 films. Films to be shown include: Inside Out, Mulan, and Juarassic World. I can’t wait to pull out my picnic basket and hit the green! For Information and dates please click here.
Visit the Hobby Center for Performing Arts.
Seeing a show at the Hobby is probably one of my favorite things to do in Houston. Although this is not NYC, the Hobby is a stunning venue. The outdoor space is incredible and the shows are always amazing. I am looking forward to seeing WICKED again which is back in July. For a list of complete shows and dates click here.
Visit a local farmers market.
EaDo, East Downtown, is near and dear to my heart. There are so many Farmers Markets in Houston, but this one is my favorite! The vendors are amazing and the Esplanade is a gorgeous setting. This farmers market is every Sunday from 10AM-2PM. There are tons of food vendors, so come hungry! To learn more about the East End Farmers Market, please click here.
