Question:

Hi, Kindly ask you to clarify what are the Texas custom regulation about the quantity of Alcohol (vine) that is permitted to bring to the state from abroad? Thank you in advance Best regard, Serhii

Answer:

Generally, one liter of alcohol per person may be entered into the U.S. duty-free by travelers who are 21 or older.  Most States restrictions on the amount of alcohol that can be brought into that State apply only to residents of that State.

Hey again, 



Ok, the tours are ADA accessible but there is no one signing during the tour for the hearing impaired. The visually impaired would be able to hear the tour guide, but there isn't any extra descriptives for these participants. I hope this helps!

Lobster
Submitted by Jane Holdren from Laredo on 09-05-2013
Question:

Where can I get a good cheap lobster dinner near the IAH airport?

Answer:

Hi Jane,

There is actually a Pappadeaux restaurant (locally owned here in Houston) in terminal E at IAH. They serve a nice lobster. Also, if you're outside of the airport, you could check out Pappas Seafood House in Humble. 

Hope this helps!

New Years in Houston
Submitted by Stephen Crane from Edmonton, Alberta, Canada on 09-04-2013
Question:

Hey Veronica, The wife and my two daughters will be in your city New Years Eve and most of New years Day. What are the celebrations like for New Years? Also, we would like to do some shopping while in your city. The Premium Outlet is open on New Years Day but the Galleria says nothing. Would it be open? I am trying to figure out where to stay that would be the most cost effective as we will not be renting a car. Any help would be appreciated. Thanks, Stephen

Answer:

Hi Stephen,

So glad you'll be spending NYE in Houston!

You are a little on the early side, so I'm sure most shops and shopping centers won't have their New Year's holiday hours posted for a bit.  I would venture to say the Galleria will be open on New Years Eve and New Years Day, but may have limited hours.  Certainly check back in October/November timeframe. 

Regarding places to stay, since you are not renting a car, I'd suggest staying in a hotel in the Galleria area.  The Westin Galleria & Westin Oaks is actually connected to the Galleria shopping mall, so that is your best bet.  Here is a list of other Galleria area hotels too.

Unfortunately the Houston Premium Outlet is about 28 miles away on the outskirts of town.  There is really no good public transportation out there, so I'd suggest renting a car for a day or give a call to The Wave.  The Wave may be able to transport your family out there and pick you up.   

Hope this helps!

Relocation
Submitted by Viviana Mayoli from Charlotte on 09-03-2013
Question:

Hi Veronica, My husband has been offer a transfer in jobs to Houston. We are a couple over 55 not quite retiring. I'm just wondering how the unemployment rate is for me. I will be looking for a job and a home. We own a home in Charlotte and would probably be looking to buy in Houston but would prefer a quite 50+ area.(single family small comfortable home) What do you suggest? We also have 2 dogs that are older and large breed how difficult is finding a place that accepts dogs?

Answer:

Hi Viviana,

First off, welcome to Houston! I suggest you request a Relocation Guide that the Greater Houston Partnership produces.  It gives you a great overview of the city and can help you narrow down areas of town you like. 

Depending on the area of town you're interested in, you can find a great home for probably less than what you're paying in Charlotte.  Also, Houston's economy has been flourishing, so depending on the industry you work in, you shouldn't have too much problem finding a job. 

As far as area of town, are you looking to live closer to the city or out in the suburbs? Do you know what area of town your husband's job will be? At 634 square miles, the City of Houston could contain the cities of New York, Washington, Boston, San Francisco, Seattle, Minneapolis and Miami - so we're very spread out! If you give me more specifics, I can provide some suggestions.

Regarding pets - are you looking for a place to rent vs buy? Many townhomes and apartments will let you have dogs for a small fee, so I woudln't worry.

Let me know what other questions you have.

Best,

Veronica

Submitted by Linda from Houston on 09-03-2013
Question:

Hello Veronica, how can I find festivals/events that are open for anybody to open a boot and advertise their business products. How could I get a list of that or where could I seaarch?

Answer:

Hi Linda,

You can search our Events Calendar for festivals in Houston - just select "festivals" under the first drop down box.  I don't know if they will all accept booths, but you can research which you like the best and contact them.

Hope this helps,
