    Explore Historic Freedmen’s Town Labyrinth

    Since this past April, a multi-faith, highly diverse group of Houston community volunteers has been collaborating to install an 11-circuit labyrinth in the prayer garden located in the shadow of Houston’s downtown skyscrapers where Mt. Carmel Church once stood. About 100 years ago, neighborhood residents founded the Mt. Carmel Church, but over the decades, however, the church building became structurally unsound and was eventually demolished leaving only its prayer garden.

    Old World wine picks to sip on

    The world of wine has gotten incredibly large and diverse. It can be tough to keep up with it, even a portion of it. Even if you are well-versed about your favorite producers of your favorite varietal in Napa or Sonoma fairly well you might be unfamiliar with excellent interpretations of the grape in Washington or Oregon, or even in other parts of California. When it comes to other varietals and the rest of the wine-producing world, the breadth of wines can seem overwhelming. Then, labels and designations printed in French, Spanish, Italian and German can add another dimension of confusion.
