    Best Driving Range - Memorial Golf Course

    Summers in Houston -- especially this summer, when temperatures were pushing 110 degrees into September -- are a detriment to your golf game. It's hot and sticky, the fairways are parched and burned, and the greens are baked to the unforgiving consis...

    Best Steak Dinner for Two for 20 Bucks - PJ's Sports Bar
