As we wind down Mixers, Elixirs, & IMAX in 2008 I’m finding it hard to believe that three months have all but flown by! Before it’s over we’ve got two amazing Houston groups coming your way: Yvonne Washington & the Mix and Grupo Ka-Che.

This Friday, Yvonne Washington & The Mix will be gracing the stage at Mixers, Elixirs, & IMAX. The sultry vocals of Ms. Washington are frequently compared to Aretha Franklin’s and in my honest opinion, that comparison is dead on. Neither can you ignore the fact that Ms. Washington has sung with Stevie Wonder and Calvin Owens, two of the most notable musicians in contemporary history.

On Aug. 29, Grupo Ka-Che is going to be the crown on the Mixers 2008 season. Believe it or not, the last Mixer of the season in 2007 brought over 1,700 Houstonians together! When was the last time you went to a club with a party that big? Mixers, Elixirs, & IMAX is one of the most unusual parties in Houston – and one of the most popular. And I want to hear about what you are thinking!

What did you like this season? What did you not? What do you want to see next year? Take this opportunity to tell me – how would you plan this party? As we begin planning the 2009 season (yup, we’re going to planning for next year as soon as the last band rolls out) I want to incorporate your suggestions – so leave a comment and let me know what we can do to make Mixers even more of a blast next year.

The Kinks, The Who, The Beatles, and The Rolling Stones are all going to be featured by one of the best cover bands in Houston this week at Mixers. Dance, drink, and sing to the high energy tunes you know and love with Picture Book!

As we prepare for the British Invasion here at the Museum I wanted to give you some exciting tidbits about our brand new VIP room, The Lab. I have to admit, I’m a foodie, so here’s a sneak peak at this weeks menu…

Stilton, Manchego, Herbed Goat Cheese Terrine and Brie with Assorted Crackers

Kalamata, Gaeta, Picholine, Nicoise, Dry Cured Moroccan and Sicilian Cracked Green Olives

Baba Ganoush, Hummus, and Hot Artichoke Dip with Toasted Pita Chips

Asparagus with Green Goddess Dip

Chicken Sautee with a Spiced Yellow Curry Sauce

You get so many things with our VIP ticket besides the amazing food lovingly made by our very own City Kitchen. Come out, see it all, and be seen (thanks Houston Press!) – only at Mixers, Elixirs, & IMAX every Friday night from 6 – 10 p.m.
