Valentine's Day Noose Beginning to Tighten

Unread postby Hi Oktane » Fri Feb 05, 2010 5:47 pm

So, what do you TCF cassanovas do on Valentine's Day to keep the old lady off your back and on hers?

Nada? Obligatory candy, flowers, dinner...? Something more imaginative?

P.S. Don't panic, it's not for another week yet.

I'm getting her a pair of ear rings.

She knows she doesn't have to buy me shit.

7:30 reservation at Maggiano's. No gifts. No bullshit. Just good Italian food and a night with my best friend.

This was being talked about on the sports talk I listen to out here, I need to start a NHB, I am not going to gum up this thread with it. Unless of course you are going to Maggianos with one of your boys for Vday ;-) ;) :wink:

Give her a black eye, bitch knew we were out of syrup before she made the pancakes.

Last year, went to see "Wicked" at Playhouse Square. That was the night Ben Wallace broke his leg in Houston. I leave the hand of fate in charge for one night.... (And I don't even own a Ben Wallace jersey.)

This year, I have a business trip this week (semi-ironically in Houston) and she's out of town next weekend. That means Valentine's Day is getting celebrated with a hastily-constructed dinner out next week.

So I guess that's a long way of saying I'm no help at all.

Let me know if you need a tour guide.

It's really not that bad September-May. June, July, August tend to be a bit brutal on the hot/humid side. Like any climate, you adjust after a while. You need a tour guide in Houston because the city is a patchwork of cool neighborhoods and ghastly urban sprawl. It has a lot to offer, but you kinda need to know where to look. Just to keep this on topic, a really good restaurant city.

People around work talk about how good the museums are in Houston. Do you recommend any of them? Any restaurants in particular? Thinking about a weekend trip sometime in the next couple of months before the weather turns into e0y2e3's description.

As with all major cities, you can price yourself out of the market quickly, but I would try and stay downtown at one of two small hotels, The Icon or The Lancaster. The Menil collection is definitely worth a visit, as is the Fresco Chapel. The Icon has a great restaurant, VOICE. Other good eats near downtown, in the Montrose, are Hugo's (upscale, authentic Mexican), Da Marco's (northern Italian), and Mark's (new American). Lots of good pubs and ice houses in and around The Montrose and Lower Kirby. Not nearly as funky as Austin, but not a bad city all in all.

Thanks for the recs. Austin is funky for sure, and has character, but we don't have so much in the way of "culture" here. And I've never been to Houston so I think it's time to explore the city.
