Enjoy! Here are your best bets for the weekend.

Thursday, June 9

Guard and Grace presents Pink and White Party

The annual Pink and White Party is where lavish meets outrageous. Think flamingos, pink and white derby-style attire, and more than 40 pink and white wines to tickle guests' fancy, accompanied by food stations and passed hors d'oeuvres prepared by Guard and Grace's chefs. A portion of the proceeds provides a scholarship in wine for a local, budding hospitality professional at the Texas School of Wine. 3 p.m.

Sonia Flores presents "Ascendants From the Future"

"Ascendants from the Future" is a celestial macramé installation host to experimental music and performance. Created by Sonia Flores and team, the nebula-like structure is inspired in part by the music of Sun Ra, the exploration of Spirit, the beauty and vastness of outer space and Flores' own personal defining of the artistic movement known as "Indigenous Futurism." Each Thursday for the month of June will showcase a musical act/performance. 7 p.m.

Improv Houston presents Tony Roberts

Coming to Houston for a two-night stint, Detroit comic Tony Roberts has been blessed with the coveted honor of being the "comedian's comedian." His hilarious and refreshing, energetic comedy style has granted him respect and created a huge demand for him on the comedy circuit. Legendary comedian and sitcom director David Steinberg acclaimed Roberts as "a breakout talent" after witnessing his stand-up, eventually casting him as the lead in a series of Burger King commercials he directed. 7:30 p.m.
