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.
Veronica, I want to go to Premium Outlet, please can you confirm if you have any public transportation to get it? I's staying at Hilton Westchase Hotel. If you have somebody who speaks Spanish, it will be great. Thank you
There is no public transportation that I'm aware of to the outlet mall. However, you may try Texas Tour Connection, which runs tours to the outlets. Also The Wave may be able to coordinate transportation for you as well. You will have to check with these two companies directly for pricing info and availability.
Last week, my daughter visited the Houston Visitors Center at City Hall on a trip with her church group and purchased a t-shirt and postcards to bring back as gifts from her trip. Unfortunately, she set these down somewhere and lost them. Is there a possibility that I can order these items from the Visitors Center online? I have not been able to find the Visitors Center online store.
Unfortunately the Visitors Center does not have an online sales outlet at this point. However, if you call Cherry Eno or Anita Jones in the Visitors Center and let them know we talked about your situtation, they will help you re-order over the phone. Reach them at 713-437-5556. I hope this helps!

I'm having a large number of family members coming into town for a spur of the moment visit. Age groups vary from very young to very old. We are looking for something fun for everyone that's not very costly and entertaining for all. We don't care much for events exposing us to a lot of heat for long periods. Saturday, August 4th is our target date to get out and about. What can you suggest?
Hey Veronica, I would love to rent a limo suv or bus for my family (20+ ppl) to and gamble in La., any suggestions? We would want round trip service and be able to drink alcohol, (6 - 8 hrs gambling time), thanks
I don't know the rules on drinking alcohol while in the limo, but they will be able to let you know.
Hi Veronica, Any good birthday weekend ideas for a 25yr old?
What does he or she like to do? Do you want something more low key or going out on the town? Is there an area of town you want to stay in?
It is always fun to go out an enjoy the Houston nightlife. Midtown has some great bars, like Mongoose Vs. Cobra and Howl at the Moon. Or you can venture over to Washington Avenue to check out Pearl Bar and Taps House of Beer. If you're in the mood for fun cocktails, try Anvil Bar & Refuge over in Montrose.
Let me know if you have any more questions.
Hi, Veronica, We're coming to Houston this weekend and wondered if there are any street fairs or flea markets in or nearby the city. If not, any suggestions about how to spend Saturday? Unfortunately, the Astros aren't in town! :-( Thanks, S
You're in luck! The Discovery Green Flea by Night is a nighttime flea market in downtown's Discovery Green park. Also, the Urban Harvest Farmers Market takes place on Eastside Drive every Saturday morning--always a good time.
Since you like sports, you can check out the Houston Dynamo vs Montreal Impact (MLS soccer) in their gorgeous brand new stadium just east of downtown (very close to Discovery Green!).
Do you have any other interests? Art? Museums? Shopping? Theater? Let me know, and I can give you additional suggestions.
what do you recommend for a bachelor party all in the late twenties early thirties
A few options that come to mind: Downtown there's the Houston Pavilions, which offers Pete's Dueling Piano Bar, House of Blues and Lucky Strike Lanes.
On Washington Ave., I would suggest a couple spots: Hughes Hangar and Kung Fu Saloon. In Montrose, the new beer bar Hay Merchant is pretty fun and Royal Oak nearby.
Hope that helps. Let me know if you need more suggestions!
I was wondering if the agatha chrisie's play would be age appropriate/fun for my teenage daughters...
I just saw Black Coffee the other night and yes it is quite age appropriate. No bad language or anything really risque. I think the whole family will enjoy it! Also, check out this coupon for up to 17% off tickets on select shows.
I can go to a club if I have 18 years? (Not drinking)only be in
Dave & Buster's is also an option.
If you need anything else, let me know!
Is there public transportation from IAH to the medical center area? Is there a shuttle I can take from the airport that takes me to a place where I can transfer to the Rapid Transit system? I will be visiting my son and he lives near one of the stations on the metro. Thank you.
Unfortunately, other than Metro buses, taxis and Super Shuttle, we don't have any public transportation to the airport. The Metro buses are very inexpensive, but there are many stops. You may want to take a look at the Metro trip planner just to see how long it would take to get to your son's house. A taxi from the airport to the Medical Center will be about $50. You may want to call The Wave, a local jitney service, to get a quote. It may be cheaper than a taxi.
If you have additional questions, let me know!
