We went to 2 games and I have to say, this ballpark is really a nice place to watch a game....
Aside from being a dome (so you don't have to worry about a rain-put!), the park was nice and clean, seats pretty comfortable, and food was above average.
There are a few bars right across the street, which were pretty fun to stop in before the game!
Midtown Lounge For A Saturday Night
This 2 story midtown lounge has lasted quite a bit longer than most of it's trendy counterparts typically do. Located on Brazos St., about 5 minutes south of downtown, if you drove by the building during the day, you would never think that this place was more than a storage warehouse. But come nighttime, the line of people outside definately tells it's true story. Now really a big draw only on Saturday nights, there is also a decent crowd Friday, and even less people on Thursday. Crowds usually begin gathering around 10:30-11pm. Throughout the bar you will see your typical modern, trendy lounge decor. Downstairs the bar is located in the middle of the room, with several small standing tables scattered about, and a few plush couches and chairs as well. Upstairs there is a smaller bar in the tiny inside portion, but the huge outside patio, with it's many tables and chairs, has it's own bar to itself. There is a great view of downtown from the patio, which adds to the nice ambiance. They usually have a DJ downstairs spinning house or trance, but occasionally they mix up the tunes with some hip-hop or 80's tunes. The crowds that frequent here are usually 20's to early 30's, and drinks are usually on the expensive side, as these trendy places go, around $7-8 for a mixed drink, $5-6 for a beer. Nice place, good atmosphere. Dress to Impress. Dress code has relaxed as of late, jeans are fine, but no tennis shoes
Flan- Mexican egg custard with almond cookie shards of tortilla, garnished with fresh fruit.........Menu says $4.35......receipt says $2.95! I would have expected to pay $8 for this beauty.... I ordered this the first time I was here and came back t just to take a picture of it!!
Is it worth the trip out to NASA?
The Johnson Space Centre is about an hour's drive from downtown Houston, and can get extremely crowded, especially during the school holidays. Is it worth making the trip? Yes and no. The actual visit to the working NASA offices is only about 45 minutes, where they take you to see the astronaut training site with all the mock-ups of the space vehicles (most times no one is there) and the old mission control room. For the time spent queueing, it's not worth much.
