Cynthia Woods Mitchell Center for the Arts says
Join the University of Houston Cynthia Woods Mitchell Center for the Arts and Fresh Arts for drinks and conversation at Boheme Cafe & Wine Bar on Thursday, March 16th, when a portion of the proceeds from all drink sales during this happy hour event will go to support the 2017 CounterCurrent festival.

Come enjoy a drink or two, get some CounterCurrent swag, meet the festival team, and take-in Boheme's bohemian atmosphere! The proceeds from the evening will support the group so don't be shy and raise a glass (or three) while raising funds for CounterCurrent17!
