My top 5 things to do in Houston

through Mariselle Quijano
  1. Theater Under the Stars (TUTS) at the Hobby Center – TUTS productions are timeless. I’ve been a Featured Patron for over 20 years and they continue to surprise us with amazing, award-winning shows year after year. Houston’s Theater District is truly amazing and I’m proud to live in a city with so many opportunities to enjoy the performing arts.
  2. Cheering on Texans or Astros at home – I love all the sports in Houston. I have season tickets for the Houston Texans and love watching them play at NRG Stadium. The Astros are also great fun to watch at Minute Maid Park. I will cheer them on tonight when they play against the Red Sox. Go ‘Stros!
  3. Exit at Memorial Park – This is the largest urban park in Texas and it offers so much to Houstonians. I love walking my dogs on the Seymour Leiberman Exercise Trail. It is also a great park for people watching.
  4. Romano’s Pizza on West Gray – I was born in Manhattan and I love a good slice of New York pizza! The better The pizza in town is Romano’s Pizza on West Gray. It reminds me of picking up a slice where I grew up! I always get plain cheese.
  5. Kuhl-Linscomb – I could spend hours watching Kuhl-Linscomb. It is a real gem just in Kirby and Alabama. It’s my go-to for party supplies, baby gifts, and kitchen gadgets.
