Day 1

We flew into George Bush Intercontinental and picked up our rental. The first stop was Truck yard to get a bite to eat.  Truck yard has good beer and awesome food trucks.  We hung around and waited in our Air BnB for other family members to show up.

Day 2

  • Another Broken Egg Cafe
  • The Escape Game Houston
  • Truck Yard
  • 8th Wonder Brewery
  • Pappas Bros. Steakhouse

For breakfast we went to Another Broken Egg Cafe.  I highly recommend this cafe.  Next we went to The Escape Game.  Which is a escape room and we did the Gold Rush room.  We also managed to escape.  We had to go back to the Truck Yard to take the others who have not gone yet.  We then walked around the area to a near by brewery 8th Wonder and had a few drinks.  We went back home got dressed for my brothers proposal and a celebration steak diner after at Pappas Bros. Steakhouse.

Day 3: San Antonio

  • Sirilo’s Cafe
  • River Walk
  • The Alamo
  • Historic Market Square
  • Mi Tierra Cafe y Panaderia

On day 3 we decided to take a trip to San Antonio.  The trip took about three and a half hours.  Half way thru we stopped to grab a bite to eat at Sirilo’s Cafe.  Once we finally made it to San Antonio we parked in a garage and went on a river walk boat tour.  After the boat tour we walked around the mall and made our way towards The Alamo.  After The Alamo we went to Historic Market Square which is family owned markets that sell unique items.  Before heading back on the road we ate dinner at Mi Tierra Cafe y Panaderia which had some amazing Mexican food and margaritas.

Day 4

  • Gatlin’s BBQ
  • Christy’s Donuts Kolaches
  • King’s BierHaus
  • Little Woodrow’s Midtown
  • BB’s Tex-Orleans

We woke up a little late and had lunch at Gatlin’s BBQ.  While driving around we spotted Christy’s Donuts Kolaches and had a few donuts.  We then went to a German beer house called King’s BierHaus where we had German beer and pretzels.  We heard about a famous event every Thursday in Houston at Little Woodrow’s in Midtown.  Every Thursday night they do turtle racing.  It was a different experience and free to play.  You choose a turtle and if they win 3 total races you get a free beer.  The last stop of the day was BB’s Tex-Orleans where we had some New Orleans style craw fish.

Day 5: Fishing charter

This day was a one event type day we went fishing with Get Hooked Fishing Charters.  Our take off was delayed because of fog so we got back around 8 at night.  We caught tons of red snapper but since not in season we could not keep them.  I also went home to a surprise birthday celebration with sushi and cake.

Day 6

  • Ninfa’s Mexican Restaurant
  • Saint Arnold Brewing Company
  • Houston Astros

On the last day we met up with a cousin of mine who lives in Houston and went to Ninfa’s Mexican Restaurant.  This is a well known Mexican restaurant in the area.  After lunch we went to a family friendly brewery called Saint Arnold Brewing.  This brewery has a outdoor shaded area which is awesome for Spring, Summer, or fall.  This brewery was also next to the Houston Astros stadium which we had tickets to that night.

The next day we flew out early morning from George Bush Intercontinental.
