Finally, It's Fall in Houston

Weather today is bright, blue, clear and breezy. And what does this have to do with Second Seating? Everything. Second Seating is open to the elements in that warehouse space of ours and as many of you know, it's been more than muggy. Walk through Second Seating and sweat.There is no air conditioning and when it's hot, it's very hot. Heck, there is no glass in the windows. When it rains, water runs over parts of the floor, seeping in from the parking lot on to the concrete slab.
It rained all last weekend and when there wasn't a downpour, it is misting. On Monday morning, we walked into the Second Seating space and found the four spun sugar cathedrals on the banquet table melting. Yes, melting away. Pretty awful. Just glistening with wet, liquid, caramelizing sugar.So, we've removed them from the banquet table and they're back home in a climate controlled air conditioned atmosphere. I am happy to say that the cathedrals are dry and solid again. Not as white as they used to be, but they've held together and I may bring them back to Second Seating.
Now with fall weather, a walk and a ponder through Second Seating should be a joyful, comfortable experience. Come visit us today. We're open from 11:00 - 5:00 and again next Monday - Friday, 9:30 - 4:00.
We're also planning several more evening 'gatherings', plus an LED 'throwies' party. Dates for all to be announced in a day or two.
Hey, and check out our listing on HAA's Arts Hound.
