Transcript bagels and cream cheese on order from the Ashland Deli a block away. She will offer tarot card readings and her own occasional renditions of torch songs from behind the bookstore piano. Midweek Metaphysics programs on Wednesdays will feature Gail Sellers, author of the Astro Charts column for Innerview. Williamson's November ideas include an election night party, an ad for which says, "Oh my god, I just know one of these guys is going to win!" She wants to make her place a community center, where pleasantly unusual things occur. In her store she has copies of Mao"s poems on top of Joy of Sex and How to Get a Texas Divorce filed in the Humor Section in the store. "I've been open a little over three months," said Williamson, "but I wasn't really open in my head-l had just gotten a divorce, so those first two months don't count. If I make it until Christmas, this thing is going to be a success, I just know it." The Flewellen Center on Alabama at Audobon has been positively perking lately. First the chic furnishing shop TLC opened with wine and roses, then Pasternak's grocery kicked Jack's Junque out of the building across Alabama, and now is cleaning up the place for a big antique shop there. Alas, the rumors of a deli are untrue, so we will continue watery egg breakfasts at Brasserie. However, signs announce a blessed event-the birth of the Acadiana Bakery due open now. It won't be jambalaya cakes, but croissants, rolls and Parisian sweets. A new set of awnings will go up on the building soon to match the new coat of paint, and who knows, they may even pull that trash dumpster out of sight behind the building somewhere. MISCELLANY Wholly communal, the St. Thomas University annual chili cook off at the tennis court-playground area was won by a cauldron full of "The Embezzler" recipe,con- cocted by freshpeople John Donovan, Michael Fleming and John Martin. Fleming said he wanted something that "will burn your throat to swallow" and the recipe's exact ingredients were so secret that two Houston police officers were called in the guard the cooks. However,an empty fifth of Jack Daniels was noticed not a mile away from the pot, so Fleming et al. may have used part of their $125 prize for hangover remedies as well as Pepto Bismol. St. Thomas, which teeters on the edge %AM*&k mm * ^id£3 236-1111 528-2116 a pie throwing service nr.vAuiv t\tm«iTOH \<a^o i DRIVE SAPB'Mfl What next? If there aren't enough jobs to go around in Houston, it's not for lack of entrepreneurial creativity. (See story) Mary Harrison, Kathy God/ey, Toni Nunez, and Judy Clark used a little sour mesh whiskey at the St. Thomas chili cook-off. (See story) of becoming a community institution oc- casionally(it sponsors Courses a la Carte, for example, and once had a media cen- ter)seems to be tottering back in the other direction. The tennis courts are padlocked, though if you look enough like A Faculty, you can get the keys at the counter in the Crocker Center. In case you wondered, all those grey and white buildings near it belong to the de Menil family, whose favorite colors are dull, if you think we're kidding just step into the Rothko Chapel. No use paying for an isolation tub after you've been to that ice house of the mind. In a late-breaking development at St. Thomas, student Toni Nunez cleared up the mystery of the empty whiskey bottle. "It was the secret ingredient in what we call Whiteman's Chili," she said,"smug- gled from the kitchen of the mother of my partner, Kathy Godley.'The fifth helped her to take fifth place, and the cooking team, besides Captain Nunez, consisted of Godley,Judy Clark, andMary Harrison. Susan Spruce, coordinator for the second year of Houston's US-China People's Friendship Association, says the national convention of the USCPFA will be in Houston in one of the next two years. The convention will bring a thousand visitors, special Chinese cultural displays and performances to the city, where the local chapter has 160 members and plans for expansion. Spruce is looking for a permanent office for the group, which currently uses her phone as a link to the public. US-China and the Asia Society, 3400 Milam, are sponsoring a limited attendance hand puppetry show at Kincaid School, Sept. 15. The troupe performing, the Fujian Hand Puppeteers, is the most skilled in China making their first appearance in the US.Classical theatrical pieces, with music and English explanations, using foot-tall puppets that sword- fight, smoke, sing and dance, will be offered. September 17, a reception for the puppeteers and the puppets at Autry House will be open to the public free of charge. Speaking of freebies, don't miss the SUM concerts jazz festival in Miller Theatre, September 26-27, featuring nationally-known musicians. The Texas Renaissance Festival comes up at the end of the month, and the Huntsville Prison Rodeo in October. SEPTEMBER Houston is not only a center of Asian American activity, it has more mushrooms than any other metropolitan area . To prove it, Houston Baptist University is sponsoring (Sept 11-14) its fourth annual mushroom foray, led by professors of botany from Kent and Alabama, which expects to bring back dead or alive some 400 species of the mysterious flesh of the gods (as mushrooms are called in Jalisco). C.J. Forrest of HBU says there are "many thousands" of species of mushrooms in Houston, but alas some are deadly. The idea of the foray is to give you a biting chance to survive if you pick 'n snack out in the woods- not only do all the hunters go out in the woods, but they spend the three days with films, books, and talks on the fickle fungus. In case you miss it, try The Big Thicket Museum in Saratoga, Texas. The group of young naturalists over there have periodic trips up and down Village Creek and back into the Thicket,leaving no stone unturned in their quest for unique flora and fauna. A 9-hour canoe trip cost $25, with a guide and swimming hole thrown in( bring your owrv4iinch and repellent), and shorter walks, talks and picks can be arranged by telephone. 11
