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!

Hi, I have been online seeking info on what it cost to see the Magna Carta at Museum of Natural Science and Fabrege Eggs. Also want to go to MFAH for Age Of Impressionist and John Singer Sargent exhibit. I will be in town this month 18th - 22nd so free Thursdays is out. I bought a Groupon for the Magna Carta as a friend wants to go with me. Ok so do I pay general admission plus tickets for each individual exhibition. This could get very expensive and as I am retired but not a senior yet how can I see these as cheaply as possible? Thanks for any suggestions. The City Pass does not help with price of exhibitions.
I would suggest you use this coupon from the Museum of Natural Science that will help offset these costs. It's the best deal I've found!
by: Veronica from Houston
I honestly don't know how your Groupon works. I would suggest you contact Groupon for that information. I can only speak to the coupon I provided you with and the fact that you get at least half off of each of the experiences outlined there. On MFAH, I don't have any current coupons to share. I know that the general admission is $15. The only item that is an additional charge at this time is the Impressionists exhibit which is $23, which includes general admission as well. I hope this helps.

Thank you for your help with the Museum of Natural Science. Is there any help with the MFAH? I bought the Groupon for the Magna Carta exhibit. Do you pay an admission price and then pay extra for each exhibit? It could really add up. I am sorry I am being so dense in regard to the charges at the MFAH and the Museum of Natural Science.
Veronica, My girl friend is flying in to Houston tomorrow for a visit. If like to find a hotel that will take her breath away! One that we can stay couped up in and enjoy eachother until they kick us out Sunday! Haven't seen eachother In cohe of months so I'm thinking sparks will definitely fly! I've looked at the zaza hotel, just wondering if that would be the way to go....? I'm only working in the area, so not familiar with much. She flies out Sunday morning so Houston area is best. Thank you Tom
Hotel Zaza is a great property Tom. I highly suggest it if that's one you're considering.
Hi Veronica, I am a foreigner and will be staying at the Crowne Plaza Northwest-Brookhollow for 2 weeks and will have two weekends/ 4 days of spare time. I'd like to visit the Space Centre, Museum of Fine Arts and shop at Galleria. The problem is that I don't know how to drive and do you know if there's any way to reach the above places? Any options that can pick me up at my hotel other than calling a cab (or could you please give me some idea how much the fare will be)? Thank you in advance. Crystal
The fares will be very expensive since you're staying on the opposite side of town. To give you an idea:
We are flying into Hobby Airport and would like to rent a car to drive to the cruise port terminal. Could you please tell me if there are any car rental locations near the port that would be able to shuttle us to our ship? Thank you.
Can you tell me which cruise port you are traveling from: Galveston or Bayport Cruise Terminal?
by: Veronica from Houston
Ok, there is an Enterprise rental location in Seabrook, fairly close to the terminal. It's located at:
1815 Bayport Blvd.
Seabrook, TX 77586
*Saturday hours of operation: 9am - 12pm
However, I want you to be aware that there is a drop-fee for those using this location and going to the cruise terminal. That can be anywhere from $50 to $100 according to Enterprise. Considering this, it may be more economical to take a cab, unless there are more things you want to do in the rental between the airport and the terminal. Contact Enterprise directly for more details.

What is the dress code for this event. We were given VIP Gold Passes for the festival and are new to Texas. I've tried calling their number but am not getting any replies. Can you please help!!
The screenings are very casual. I believe the VIP Gold Pass may also get you into the Gala that is being held next weekend. If that is the case, then that is cocktail/business attire.
Hope this helps,
