good baby shower stores in houston
Are you looking to start a baby registry? Or you'd like to host a baby shower?
I host an annual conference called 3DCAMP Houston, and I am having a hard time finding a venue that can accommodate a crowd of 500-1000 people. We hosted our first year at the Houston Technology Center when we had 115 attendees, and year two was at the University of Houston Natural Science and Mathematics building with 300 attendees. Year 3 was at the UH Architecture school where we had 550 attendees, and the space was too small for us. We don't expect the conference to get much bigger than 500-800 attendees this year, so we really aren't big enough to move to a proper convention space like GRB or Reliant. Also, our conference is targeted at a wider audience, and the admission price is very low (~$30 for a full day of lectures + two meals), so we can't really afford a space like GRB. Do you have any ideas for us? Thanks for your help! Dave
Check out our venue search tool. You can narrow your search by capacity, meeting space or even area of town.
Hope this helps,
Hello, my wife and I recently purchased a home in Katy. We are having our 1 yr anniversary this weekend and staying downtown and going to the rodeo. What are some 'must do' things to see or places to eat in Downtown?
I may have missed your weekend outing, but definitely check out our itineraries and things to do around Rodeo section for future ideas. Also, next time you're in downtown, be sure to check out Market Square Park for great dining and nightlife.
My family and I will be visiting Houston at the end of March and we need to find out if there are any African dance classes in your city?
Is there a French festival this weekend at Discovery Green?
The French Cultural Festival is today (3/7) from 7pm - 10pm at Discovery Green.
I am flying into IAH on business on a Monday evening. I am staying at the Lancaster Hotel, what would be the best transportation to the hotel? This is my first time visiting Houston.
I'd suggest either renting a car or taking a cab into the Lancaster. It is approximately $55 from the airport to the hotel. You may also want to check out Super Shuttle.
There is a metro bus that picks up in Terminal C, and drops off at the downtown metro station, but you'd still need transportation from the bus station to the Lancaster.
Hope this helps,
Hello Veronica. I would be grateful for some help on the weather in Houston. My husband and I are wanting to book a holiday there next year, but after looking at so many weather programmes we get confused. We love outdoor swimming, and love the heat, as we are normally go to Florida so are used to it. We favour June, July or August, but have read this is rainy season, would these months be a good time to go, or would we get a lot of rain and cloud. Very grateful for your help. Regards Kathy
Houston is a great place to visit! I know you would have a fun time.
Here is a link to our weather - May and June tend to be our rainiest months. We are right along the coast, so pop-up showers do happen. Most of the time they are just splash and dash showers, so it shouldn't ruin your outdoor activities too much.
Hope this helps,

Hi Veronica..My family is in Southeast Texas, but I want a place similar to the quaint town I am in in Pasadena, Ca. With farmer's markets, little old houses and shops within walking distance, I have to have in my life! What is the best area for apts in the Heights?
The Heights is great for this type of lifestyle! There are great shops and quaint cafes located on 19th street. There are several Farmers Markets to check out, but Airline Farmers' Market is right in the Heights.
Hope this helps!

I hadn't heard of it before - thanks for letting me know! I'll be sure to keep them in mind for future children's resale shop questions.
