For you Texans..........
Going to Houston for work today until Thursday evening.
What should I try and do while I am there? Never been so I am up for anything.
My only real busy day will be tomorrow. I will have all of early evening and tonight as well as all day after 2 tomorrow and then a few hours on Thursday.
I was thinking about taking in a Astros game tomorrow night, bc I like to see the stadiums, but if you guys have any better ideas, please shoot em out.
Minute Maid is a great stadium, so an Astros game is a good choice, even if they're the worst team in MLB.
I'm a sucker for any body of water, so I would consider heading down to the Kemah Boardwalk for dinner one night. Tons of restaurants down there on the bay, and a pretty lively environment.
Nice! I am the same way, so I will look into that. I am staying at the Hotel Derek so if you guys know anything close to that it would be helpful.
As far as the Astros, even worse, they are playing the Nationals. :( But I have heard good things about the stadium so it still should be a good time.
Looking forward to seeing a little bit of Houston.
I second going to minute maid park.....great stadium. Getting a seat won't be a problem!
Haha! Especially against the Nats.

Actually, that joke originated on the south side of town. Of course they have been doing a little better than the Cubs this last hundred years or so.
