    Discovery Green Conservancy

    1500 McKinney Houston, TX 77010
    713-400-7336

    http://www.discoverygreen.com A vast prairie of little-used parking lots downtown was replaced by Discovery Green, a dozen or so acres of green space, bocce courts, lakes, water parks, performance spaces and restaurants. Sure, the name of the place is meh and they got a little sponsor-happy, but when you take in a concert or visit a farmers market at Discovery Green, you really feel like Houston is giving Chicago a run for its money as America's third city.

  • Eleanor Tinsley Park

    Eleanor Tinsley Park

    500 Allen Parkway Houston, TX 77002
    713-247-3500

    As Wayne Coyne of renowned Oklahoma rock band The Flaming Lips once noted, Eleanor Tinsley Park operates as a “natural amphitheater.” Even in the blistering heat of summer, few things are cooler than listening to a fabulous band while sprawled out on Tinsley’s large grassy hill, as the downtown Houston skyline acts as a stunning backdrop. Formerly known as Buffalo Bayou Park, Tinsley is swarmed by tens of thousands of Houstonians and out-of-towners each year for the annual Free Press Summer Fest and a variety of other festivals, including the city’s annual Fourth of July fireworks show. During quieter months, joggers and dog walkers still pack the park, though there's plenty of room for everyone. More >>

    Lucky Strike Lanes & Lounge

    1201 San Jacinto Houston, TX 77002
    713-343-3300

    http://www.bowlluckystrike.com Lucky Strike Lanes & Lounge is either an uptown bar with a bowling alley inside, or a bowling alley with an adjacent uptown bar. Either way, every weekend the place is packed with happy revelers hitting the pins and the bar until their rental shoes fall off or last call is shouted. Located in the Houston Pavilions complex steps away from House of Blues, Lucky Strike is a perfect place to lounge before or after a concert, throw a birthday bash or go on an awkward first date. Its party options, from catering to bottle service, will help your event go off without a hitch. Don't miss the excellent pop art on the walls, and do keep the dress code in mind - Lucky Strike doesn't go for baggy clothes or athletic gear of any kind, be it jerseys or ballcaps. More >>

  • Minute Maid Park

    Minute Maid Park

    501 Crawford Houston, TX 77002
    713-259-8000

    http://houston.astros.mlb.com/hou/ballpark/index.jsp Whether the Astros are making a World Series run (we miss you, 2005) or languishing in last place, you can have yourself a great night downtown at Minute Maid Park and not put much of a dent in your pocket at all. (We do advise filling up before the game, though; some tickets are cheap, but hot dogs and drinks are another story.) There's always a slew of great offers on the team's Web site: Maybe it's buy an adult ticket for seven bucks, and two kids under 14 can get in free with you. Or maybe it's a ticket, hot dog, soda and chips all for $10. The point is, bargains are there to be had. "Sure," you scoff — you old scoffer, you — "But the seats are probably in the last row near the roof and in fair territory." To a degree, true, but not completely. And the fact remains that Minute Maid is about as easy as it gets when it comes to the time-honored tradition of "improving" your seat. There's the Home Run Alley standing room, of course; there's also typically a wide selection of field-level seats sitting empty. Wait a couple of innings and then look like you belong. More >>

  • Sunny

    Sunny's Bar

    902 Capitol Houston, TX 77002
    713-224-3200

    http://www.sunnysbar.com Sunny's is a slice of Kemah-style island boozing amongst the skyscrapers and big business of Downtown Houston. Owned by a couple whose sole aim was to open a friendly bar free of its surroundings' posh attitudes, this bar is definitely worth looking for street parking in its ticket-happy area. Sunny's is extremely bright on the inside, with a pronounced beach vibe and cute signs and stickers throughout. This is the kind of bar where the drinkers become family over a few visits and look out for one another. The night we came in, there was a casserole in the crock pot near the pool tables. A big draw here are the potent Jell-O shots and alcohol-soaked pineapple wedges, which aren't for lightweights. It's rare to spend just a few minutes at Sunny's, and not unusual to see a crowd staggering out at closing time on a weeknight. More >>

  • Tellepsen Family YMCA

    Tellepsen Family YMCA

    808 Pease St. Houston, TX 77002
    713-659-8501

    http://www.ymcahouston.org/tellepsen-family Remember the old downtown YMCA? You know, that dark underground bunker that was awesome if you and your mustachioed friend wanted to toss around the medicine ball in 1935? Yeah, this is the opposite. This bright and shiny, state-of-the-art facility is only a couple year old, and if you haven't seen it yet, you owe it to yourself to stop by. You'll find all the machines and equipment you could ever use; volleyball, basketball and racquetball courts; a great pool; a delicious deli; indoor track; and super-friendly staff. Not every city is lucky enough to have a Y this huge and decked out, and it's about time you took advantage! More >>

  • Toyota Center

    Toyota Center

    1510 Polk Houston, TX 77002
    713-758-7200

    http://www.houstontoyotacenter.com The colossal Toyota Center has become the salvation of superstar music acts such as Metallica, Foo Fighters and Lil' Wayne when they roll into town. When the Rockets and the Aeros are away, the playing surfaces are removed, adding 700 seats on the floor for a staggering grand total of 19,000 possible attendees. The red seats, comfortable even if you're very tall, give a clear shot of the stage no matter where you're sitting. Plus, if you're just too far away, two overhead screens reveal the action onstage. The sound is top-notch, though beware of the seats off to the side, which can experience echo from time to time. But no worries, since it's predominantly a sporting venue, you can rest assured that your next adult beverage is just a quick jaunt up or down the stairs from where you're seated at one of more than 30 bars. The drinks aren't cheap, so bring your mortgage papers. A loan officer is there to help. More >>
