Not to be missed! The Social Book, Houston’s premier compendium of all things social, celebrates 15 years of “Wicked Success” at its Jan. 21 Launch Party. Founder Scott Evans’ theme of Wizard of Oz meets The Wiz & Wicked is packed with WOW factors. Downtown’s Discovery Green will be transformed into an “Enchanted Forest” with a lighted yellow brick road leading to “Emerald City,” a two-story tent complete with a balcony inside and outside! (Aztec Events & Tents is rumored to be spending $150-$200,000 to build the tent.) The entire cast of Ensemble Theatre ’s The Wiz will perform, and Yvonne Washington will belt out Somewhere Over The Rainbow, among other tunes. The names of "Houston Treasures," local luminaries whose photos and bios will appear in the 2010 edition of The Social Book, will be announced soon.
