I'm trying to locate a certain Mediterranean/Middle Eastern restaurant

by cromette

My husband saw a Houston restaurant on TV (don't know which network or name of show). Restaurant had traditional seating on the floor with pillows, belly-dancers and a multi-course type meal.

Any ideas which restaurant this might have been?

Thanks for your help.

Sounds Moroccan to me.
I found a place called Saffron in Houston http://houston.citysearch.com/profile/41451947/

If you ever get to San Jose you should try the Menara Moroccan Restaurant 41 East Gish Rd.

Thanks so much for your help. After looking at info on Saffron, I think it's the closest I'm going to find here. I think the place I was looking for actually closed recently. :(

I guess I'll have to try Saffron. It looks nice...just a little more upscale.

Thanks again for your help!

Hopefully, you will find the restaurant you are talking about!

By the way, thanks for your response to me on the New Orleans forum!

Travel Tips for Houston

National Museum of Funeral History

by leafmcgowan

Drove out towards North/East Texas to the "coroner" (as they so put it on their web site) of Barren Springs and Ella Boulevard to a massively large complex called "The National Museum of Funeral History". No cars in the parking lot. Ghostly feel. I wondered if they were actually open. There was a lit "open" sign on a side door, but had an arrow telling me to go around to the front. I tried to open the front door - it seemed locked. I startled the slump of a human figure sitting behind the desk. She came and opened the door - was very welcoming and invited me in. Walking through the gift shop with serious funeral books mixed with goofy death gifts ... down a corporate hall with frames of newspaper articles about their grand opening. I walked into a large warehouse of hearses, funeral artifacts, historical clippings, funerary art, and demo stations. It was very intriguing. Apparently the museum opened its doors on October 18, 1992 and now is one of the U.S.'s largest Museums covering the Funeral Industry. It's attached to a school where they teach morticians and undertakers how to do their job. A classic collection of funerary hearses ranging from the 1921 Rock Falls Hearse to earlier horse-drawn carriage versions. From Fantasy Coffins (of Ghana) (ranging from lobsters, cows, crabs, eagles, etc. to trains, planes, and boats) to Sarcophagi. Dioramas of a mortuary to an embalming room, including a nicely done Civil Warm Embalming tent. It was very intriguing. More can be found out about it at http://www.nmfh.org/. There were a few intriguing things of interest in the gift shop, but I was a little broke. They seemed decently priced. From undertaker hot sauce to Mortuary books. I wish they had a Book of the dead. You know, those photograph books of the deceased. I would like one of those.

Visit your local crowded Tiki Bar

by H-TownJourneyman about Volcano

This mostly college student - "20 something" hangout has a Tiki Bar theme to it, complete with a thatched roof over the bar and the outside patio, as well as south pacific idols and artwork adorning the walls. But most people who frequent here couldn't care less, as a primary concern here is drinking alcohol, and drinking lots of it! On a typical Saturday night, you will find this place blasting loud music, completely packed with people attempting to make their way to the bar, which can be a challenge in and of itself! The popular drink of choice here is the dangerous frozen screwdriver. But a warning, these drinks are fairly high in alcohol content, and have an almost Schnapp's-like concealment of it. On a hot summer night, these cool, tasty refreshments can go down pretty smooth, and before you know it, you are more than a little inebriated! Strong drinks, tight spaces, and loud music. Enjoy. You'll find quite a mix here, some people in shorts and flip flops, others in "dress to impress" clothes

by peaceness98 about Mi Luna

Houston Museum of Natural Science

by Angelamtp1

During a typical visit, one can expect to see approximately 50 or so of the world’s largest and most colorful butterfly species represented by over 1,500 butterflies living in the Center. The butterflies are shipped to the Center in their chrysalis form from butterfly farms in tropical Asia and North, South, and Central America. On sunny mornings, thousands of butterflies seem to be in the air, as they hover over flowers or sip fruit juice from feeding stations.

The environment of the Butterfly Center is like that of Central America, and most of the plant species are native to that area. Trees such as mahogany, ironwood, and palms, as well as the twisting trunks of lianas, create a lush overstory above the ginger, aroids, ferns, orchids, bromeliads, and prayer plants.

Pretty cool and Free! I liked the exhibition of Robert
Therrien work including the plates, Giant fake beards and extremely overscaled kitchen table. They also have a great, though small, gift shop.
