From a restaurant with a cheap meal deal to a free local activity, impress your sweetheart for less in Houston.
Updated: August 30, 2004
Bypass the main restaurant and head to the tree-shaded Backyard for live music on the weekends and inexpensive food.
Get here early to avoid long breakfast lines. Then spend the afternoon exploring Midtown via the light rail for a mere $1.
Take advantage of free happy-hour food, then stay for the Wednesday night Irish jam session. No cover charge.
This trendy Rice Village hangout features a $5 happy-hour menu with crab cakes, pot stickers and individual pizzas.
This casual West U cafe serves affordable Latin fare. Have the make-it-yourself s'mores for dessert for a gooey, romantic treat.
Enjoy this urban wildlife sanctuary for native wildflowers, plants and animals for free.
Plan on a weeknight performance and purchase half-price tickets. Then head across the street to Zin for $21.95 prix-fixe dinner.
Your $3 admission grants front-row seats to exciting racehorse action. Regular live music performances are an added bonus.
Admission is free on Thursdays and the museum is open until 9pm.
Skip the seafood. Instead, check out free music on Thursday evenings and enjoy warm, sugary beignets from the Coffee House.
Go for quieter seats in the covered area. Bring comfy pillows, a gourmet picnic and cocktails in a thermos (no glass allowed).
