NEXT STOP: Houston, TX

• August 30, 2012 • Comments (0)

The Midtown Men are in Houston, Texas for the Labor Day weekend, mixing their awesome sixties sound with The Houston Symphony.  If you are in town to see them, there is no shortage of things to do and places to visit.  After all, Houston is home to many cultural institutions and exhibits, which attract more than 7 million visitors a year to the Museum District. Houston also has an active visual and performing arts scene in the Theatre District and offers year-round resident companies in all major performing arts.

I wanted to get an “insider’s” take on hot spots in Houston, so I asked my 26 year old niece, Lindsay (who lived and worked downtown for a couple of years) to name a few places to eat and visit.  Off the top of her head, she rattled off many great ideas:

Museum of Fine Arts

For eating and drinking, and I quote:  “An amazing grocery/eatery – Central Market;  Little Bigs for sliders; coffee at Black Hole; nice Mexican brunch at  Tilas; super chill coffee and late night eating/drinking at Brasil; fancy bar with fancy drinks – Anvil; beer garden – Ginger Man; your Greek fix at Niko Nikos  and Barnabys; Crescent City beignets  are great; and a big fat kolache at the Kolache Factory …What was the question again?”

Discovery Green Park

Places to visit:  Memorial Park , The Galleria , The Museum of Fine Arts, Discovery Green  and Saint Arnolds Brewery .

It’s too bad she didn’t get out much while she was there!

Enjoy!
