It wouldn’t be Texas without a rodeo, and Houston’s is top-notch. Cowboys take the sport very seriously, so come prepared for lots of action and intense competition. And if bull riding just isn’t your thing, check out the horse shows and concerts that also take place at the venue.
Music With Friends
800 Bagby Street
This private club originated in North Carolina, worked its way to South Carolina, came to Tennessee and this fall lands in Houston. Started by Larry Farber, the concept is simple: listening to music is more fun when you’re with close friends instead of a massive audience. The exclusive membership gets you access to some of the best concerts in the country.
