BVLGARI: 130 YEARS OF MASTERPIECES

The Houston Museum of Natural Science teamed with Bulgari for a once-in-a-lifetime event, an exhibition of approximately 150 sizable pieces of jewelry on loan from private collections and from Bulgari’s Heritage Collection. Also on display will be powerful motifs that have forged the Bulgari legend—the renowned Serpente and Monete collections. This exclusive retrospective marks the first time the storied jeweler has showcased pieces representing every period since its Roman beginnings in 1884. Included are pieces from the collection of Dame Elizabeth Taylor and some that belonged to or were worn by iconic women such as Sophia Loren, Ingrid Bergman, Grace Kelly, Isabella Rossellini, and Gina Lollobrigida. The exhibition at the Houston Museum of Natural Science runs through October 5, 2014. hmns.org

MILE HIGH o rush hour scramble to

the airport, no forgetting to print your boarding pass, no shakedown at security, no delays! Following a succession of sold-out shows in London, Mile High, a pop-up dinner theater is coming to New York in September 2014 for “Destination: London,” their first United States show. A destination-themed immersive dining pop-up that combines food, cocktails, art, music and interactive theater into a truly memorable evening. Flashing back to the golden age of 1950s air travel, when leg room meant doing the twist and turbulence was a byproduct of the bar steward’s cocktail shaker, Mile High takes the best parts of a weekend away—the food, the drink and the unexpected—and serves them up in delicious style. dinemilehigh.com
