Houston Center for Contemporary Craft (HCCC) hosts Martini Madness! A Night in Havana, a chic cocktail fundraiser featuring one-of-a-kind glasses, bottomless martinis, sizzling snacks, and a big-board auction.  This year, the mid-century-themed soiree gets a tropical twist, with live Latin jazz reminiscent of 1950s Havana by Trio Forte.  At the beginning of the evening, guests select an artisan martini glass of their choice to use and take home.  Guests choose from an incredible array of glasses—all of which are handmade in a variety of styles and materials by local and national craft artists. Mid-century cocktail attire (“Mad Men”-style fashions inspired by the ‘50s and ‘60s) is suggested for this fun, swanky soiree.  All proceeds benefit HCCC.
