My fella and I are both fans of the drink and art concept, and we were not disappointed with our experience with Painting with a Twist Pasadena (TX) and our instructor Alex. This particular venue is BYOB, and we all immediately got a laugh from my guy and I bringing in a cooler (I like to come prepared). EVERYONE was laid back, and the atmosphere was awesome. He played cool music, even turning on the disco lights for a few minutes for us all to be silly. His instruction was perfect, he gave us the guideline on how to do the painting, but not so detailed that you felt like you were "messing up" if you didn't do it like he was doing it. The assistant Chelsea was also awesome, very friendly and quick to come by with additional paints and clean up the tables or any messes. There were 7 couples, and ALL of the men seemed to feel comfortable and have a great time. I would HIGHLY recommend this as a date night, or ANY night for that matter. Five Stars isn't enough!

Strawberry Park

Reviewed By Bradley R - Pasadena, Texas

Grew up 2 blocks from Strawberry Park. The public swimming pool has always been olympic size, and for a few dollars, you can pay to swim before the official opening each day. They have built a water park in the past year or so. They have a walking circuit around the park which is just so-so. They have a huge covered pavilion for skateboards and roller skates (smooth surfaces). Still, the park is very safe and has tennis, swings, playground equipment, etc. Love Strawberry Park and would recommend!!!

For over 25 years we've provided a clean, safe, and well-maintained facility for families and others to enjoy traditional fun activities.

We weren't sure what to expect when we drove in the parking lot 11am on a Saturday morning and there were only 2 cars there. But once we walked in we were quickly greeted at the door with someone who helped us decide what to do first. We tried out everything there but the pool tables. The batting cages were good,although it did not take long to get through the 12 balls that $1 gets you! The indoor putt-putt was a good course! Even though online said 18 holes, the board posted at the register said the 9 hole course played 2x for the total of 18 holes. The go-karts were fun! 95% of the course is in a covered building and would be great to do in any weather!!

Houston Symphony

Reviewed By P-n-DTravelinDuo - Nederland, Texas

The show overall was ok. We felt as though a Rolling Stones "cover band" stole the show from the Symphony players.
The show would have been so much better if the camera operator would have at least caught on camera, to show on the big screens, more of the individual players besides just the singer all night or the electric guitar player. We left the show at the end feeling somewhat disappointed.

Cockrell Butterfly Center

Next to the Houston Museum of Natural Science, the glass-enclosed butterfly habitat includes a simulated rainforest and thousands of colorful butterflies. A dramatic 50-foot waterfall and exotic plants transport visitors.

Reviewed By AllanJGJ - Wellington, New Zealand

Unlike some other butterfly centres we've been to around the world this one really measures up in terms of the number of butterflies (and species) per cubic metre. Superb. And the entry area with lots of materials both on butterflies and other insects was also well set out; aimed at children, but educational and entertaining for adults.

The one gripe I would have, and it's a big one, is the process of buying a ticket (which is at the entrance to the Natural History Museum writ large). With 15 ticket windows available only one (yes, one) was open the majority of time we were waiting in the lengthy queue. And to really ramp up the annoyance levels two staff members (including, I suspect, the supervisor) could be seen chatting to each other rather than actually serving the public by getting behind a ticket counter. There was general moaning to be heard along the length of the ever-growing line.

But putting that to one side, once we had our tickets we thoroughly enjoyed the Butterfly Centre and would recommend it, particularly to families.

Houston Museum District

Reviewed By Mark E - Houston, Texas

I don't know about you, but I don't like to have my intelligence insulted.
Especially, at such a serious place like the Holocaust Museum.
It is totally ruined by Political Correctness.
On the other hand, other exhibits qualities may be totally selective. I would avoid the HOME exhibit at the Museum of Fine Arts and the Rothko at the Menil Collection both feature displays that stretch the definition of art in a negative manner.
The rest of the Museum of Fine Arts is one of my favorite Museums and also the Museum of Natural Science.
I come from NYC so I know of Museums!

Lovely exhibit based on his later work with Pope Paul III. There are several scetches, cartoons, and paintings all from the Farenese collection in Naples. The audio guide was very informative.

The Houston Museum of Natural Science

This outstanding science museum has a spectacular collection of mineral specimens, a dinosaur skeleton, space-station models, a planetarium, IMAX theater and a six-story butterfly center in which these beautiful creatures land delicately on outstretched arms.

We had City Passes, so our trip included this museum. We aren't typically museum people, but this one was quite interesting. It has several different display areas to keep anyone interested. There is the animal history, human history, geology, artifacts from royalty, dinosaurs, Egypt and a few other sections I can't remember. There is paid parking attached to the museum ($5 or $10 I can't remember). It was worth the visit! We had teens, adults and a senior with us.

Alley Theatre

A local theatre offering plays and musicals.

Reviewed By Annette W

My daughter and I have watched four fabulous plays here. We love broadway in New York and as native Texans when we are in Houston, this is definitely one of our favorite go to spots. The staff is friendly and the talent that we have seen on the stage is amazing. We will definitely visit The Alley Theatre again soon!!
