Have a question about what to do, where to eat or anything else pertaining to your visit to Houston? Just Ask Veronica. She has the answers to your queries about H-Town.
Hi Veronica, My wife's birthday is this weekend and I'm completely out of ideas for something different. We'd be willing to venture out but just do not know where. Ideally we're thinking dinner at a fun restaurant and drinks elsewhere at a bar. Any ideas? Thanks!
Fear not, you've come to the right place. Since there are so many fun things for couples to do, I've put together a romantic weekend itinerary. Take a look at this for some ideas to get you started. If it's not what you had in mind, or you're looking for a specific area of town, just let me know and I'll help you more specifically.
I hope that helps!
Hello - do you have a submission for events? How can I get First Saturday Arts Market listed with other Heights businesses? The market is now 10 years old, and has made a big impact on the neighborhood. Being mostly a grass roots style event we do not have a huge budget. Thanks! Mitch Cohen Founder www.FirstSaturdayArtsMarket.com
You can submit events to our website for free here: http://www.visithoustontexas.com/travel-tools/events/submit-your-event/
Once it's approved by our Events Calendar staff, it'll show up in the calendar.
Do you have any suggestions for what I should where to this event?
Costumes are encourage for the Art Car Ball! There isn't really a theme, but something "car related" is always welcome - hub caps are your friend!

I have a date with another mom and the kids. What is a good place we can chit-chat and the kids will enjoy?
Here is an entire list of kid friendly restaurants - I'd also add the Lupe Tortilla at Hwy 59 and Kirby or Ruggles Green at CityCentre (the kids can run around in the green space right outside) too. Hopefully you ladies can get some good time while the kids have fun too.
Hi, I know gratuities is very common in US. Do we need to pay gratuities for trail riding? If yes, how much should we pay? Thank you!
If you went on a guided tour and enjoyed your guide, you can certainly leave him a tip. I'd say whatever you're willing to give, but no more than 15% of the cost of the tour.
Hope this helps,
Hi, I have a question about baseball game. I mistakenly bought baseball ticket on 12 May which game start at 7:10pm. But I have another flight at 13 May, 1am. Therefore, I would like to ask the duration of a baseball game in general? How long does we take from Minute Maid Part to IAH? Sorry about this silly question, but baseball is not that popular in my country so this is my 1st time. Thank you.
The average baseball game is about 3 hours, so the game should be over between 10 - 10:30pm.
Hope that helps,
Our group of 10 is going to be in Houston from April 30 through May 4. We are looking for a dinner cruise, rodeo or something to do on Friday evening, May 2. What would you suggest?
If you're looking for a dinner cruise, Houston has a great Bayou to explore. Check out this roundup of fun water related activities, including two dinner cruise options. We also have a great downtown Culinary Walking Tour. These three-hour walking food tours will discuss the evolution of the area's history architecture and culture, while stopping at a number of establishments to enjoy a variety of food and drink. Just make sure to buy tickets in advance for Friday.
If this isn't what you're looking for, here is a roundup of events taking place on May 2. We also have several itineraries you can choose from depending on the groups interest.
I hope that helps and have a great visit!
Veronica, I am coming to USA in May for only two reasons: to attend the Berkshire Hathaway annual meeting in Omaha with a friend and then to get myself to Houston to see Bruce Springsteen on May 6th. My problem is the only ticket I can get is a poor Lawn entry. I am desperate for a GA Pit ticket. I am NOT looking for a freebie. Please HELP !! thanks, James
Have you tried a ticketing site, like Stub Hub? There may be extra pit tickets there.

Lawn seats are great at the Pavilion. Don't worry and enjoy!
