Terra Cotta Warriors VIP Party

See the warriors who stand on eternal guard, ready to protect their emperor Qin Shi Huang, and do a little schmoozing with the city's movers and shakers at today's Terra Cotta Warriors VIP Party. Those lucky enough to attend will get one-on-one time with the museum's curators, a behind-the-scenes tour led by museum staff and will enjoy a chow-down spread nice enough for a king...ah, we mean emperor. 6 to 9 p.m. Houston Museum of Natural Science, One Hermann Circle Drive. For information, call 713-639-4629 or visit www.hmns.org. $40.
Thu., Aug. 13, 6-9 p.m., 2009
