When you hit up West Alabama Ice House, you must pay a visit to Tacos Tierra Caliente, the food truck across the street. I think you got the bar highlights covered but let me add Lei Low for tiki drinks. Karaoke: Genji’s (food is legit!) Art Car Parade Grocery: Phoenicia for imports from alllllll over. I think both locations are great for different reasons. If you ever need catering for a party or office thing, they are amazing. Also the big mama of farmers’ markets is Eastside Farmers’ Market. (They have shaded parking. Swoon.) Govinda’s restaurant is very cool, Indian vegetarian buffet on the campus of a temple. Izakaya Wa on Memorial is very cool for Japanese pub atmosphere. El Tiempo Cantina: go with many friends. Order the parrilla mixta for about half the number of people you have. Eat allll the meats until you sweat out your margaritas. Still take home leftovers. Wine bars: 13 Celsius, Camerata Kaboom Books for an intense book experience The girls at The Chariot Room are legit for hair and brows. If you want just threading, Sameeta’s on Hillcroft for value and excellent work. If you’re into Polish food Our Lady of Czestochowa is about to have the annual Harvest Festival form Sept 9-11. Blue Nile for Ethiopian food. Space Montrose is a great shop for Houston themed gifts and locally made stuff. If you want to go to the beach I’d drive straight south on 288 and end up in Surfside. You need like a $7 beach tag to drive straight on the beach (you can purchase it at the Valero there). Galveston is also fine, but if you’re looking for more beaching and less town, I prefer surfside.
