Date Night #2: Dinner and a Museum



Houston gets a pretty bad rap.

For a while, we were the most polluted city in America (above LA). This nugget may still be true; I haven't checked recently.

We were also America's fattest city (above Detroit).

Plus there's the traffic.

And all the concrete.

But, at least we have good museums. And they are free on Thursday nights!

At the very last minute before Matt got home from running, I decided to pull together a spontaneous date night.

I'm actually not a huge fan of museums (I prefer to do and make stuff myself rather than look at it), but Matt loves them. And I think they're good for me, so I tag along.

I used yelp.com to find a new restaurant: The Reggae Hut. And, of course, we had to end the night at Amy's Ice Cream (no wonder Houston is the fattest city in the U.S.!). And isn't the U.S. the fattest country in the world? So wouldn't that make H-town the fattest city in the world? Gosh, I hope not.

It was a very fun way to spend our evening. It reminded me that planning "Date Nights" doesn't have to require much effort at all.

Not the fattest anymore. That title now belongs to Huntington, WV.

I was going to say we aren't the fattest anymore too!
And I also love museums, and not only is the MFAH free on Thursdays, we have so many that are free all the time, like the CAMH, Menil, Station Museum, and plenty of others. But I love museums!

MFAH, the Art Car Museum...have you found hottowncoolcity.com yet? Houston can be a tough city to love, but once you get beneath its surface, you'll find all kinds of great things!

Australia is the fattest nation in the world now by 1%.
