Hey Good Lookin'

What’s cooking for 2018? For Stephanie Hoban, a long-awaited brick-and-mortar spinoff of her rave-worthy vegan food truck Ripe Cuisine. The beautiful chef — mostly in looks by homegrown designers, in all the colors of an organic garden — is making her plans, eyeing the Heights and turning up the heat!

SOUTH FLORIDA-BASED Italian shoe line Concetto Limone will make its Texas debut at a cocktail reception at Valobra Master Jewelers (2150 Westheimer Rd.) on Thursday, April 29 from 5-7pm. The evening of "All Things Italian" will transport guests immediately to the coast of southern Italian as they sip on Italian wines, Aperol Spritzes, Negronis and Limoncellos while feasting on an assortment of Italian hors d'oeuvres from Houston's beloved Tony's. Invited guests will have the first glance in Texas on the Concetto Limone line and the opportunity to purchase unisex styles on Thursday evening and all day Friday at a trunk show at Valobra.

A MASSIVE NEW exhibition up now at Foltz Fine Art (2143 Westheimer Rd.) showcases the vibrant works of two Houston artists whose art, although created through opposite means and levels of meticulousness, fuse together in a perfectly disparate union. A Sea of Green, on display through April 25, features nearly 90 works by Houston-based artists Jonathan Paul Jackson and DUAL that can be seen as opposite and apposing halves of the same boldly colored and exuberant vein of energy.
