I’m off to Texas next weekend, and while I still won’t have a chance to visit Austin (the one U.S. city that I’m desperate to explore), I’m really looking forward to heading back to Houston. I have a number of wedding festivities, and the weekend is sure to go by quickly — but my friends who are either from the area, or frequent the city often for business, have given me amazing suggestions for where to go and what to do. Now the hard part is narrowing down the list!
We probably don’t have time for serious tourist attractions like the Houston Zoo and NASA, but we are planning to stop by The Menil Collection for a quick culture fix. As for food, I’m leaning towards a low-key afternoon at Tiny Boxwood’s — though I’m slightly worried we’ll be so happy sipping cocktails in the garden that we’ll miss the wedding!
While Tiny Boxwood’s looks like the quintessential way to spend a gorgeous afternoon, on the other end of the spectrum, I’d love to get some great BBQ or Mexican food while I’m in town. Maybe I can rally the wedding party to go for late-night queso and margaritas!
