well, i love my city. we were the fattest city for a reason. we have great restaurants. i live outside the loop on the westside and some of the best places to eat are around here. bosnian, german, peruvian, korean... check out chinatown (bellaire from dairy ashford all the way through gessner) nothing better than getting stoned and going to hong kong market and looking at all the crazy stuff there. montrose is pretty cool, great coffee shops. there's always domy(ours rules over austins) and space houston( next to brasil and domy), which sells locally made art, jewelry, baby clothes, adult clothes, posters.... we have wonderful parks and wonderful musuems. check out the menil and the lovely 420 friendly park next door. i could go on... i love houston and i love to show people all the great things we have to offer. as far as the people go, we may not be as friendly as you austin folk, we're a little rough around the edges but get to know us and you'll wanna come around more!

To Tetsujin's point: PURPLE DRANK!!!!!!
As old as this'll make me sound, they have a kick ass children's museum. Herman Park is a nice visit.

Interesting thing about Houston I didn't know about until I was spurred to research it by this thread - Houston is known, by some, as the "City of Syrup." The "City of Syrup" nickname refers to the enjoyment of codeine-laced cough syrup, sometimes called purple drank, that has been popular in Houston and is associated with some rap artists. Houston rap artist Big Moe used this nickname for the title of his 2000 album City of Syrup, whose cover featured an image of purple ooze being poured over the Houston skyline. It's a fact.

I'll be in Houston early next week to see Father John Misty and La Sera at HOB. You'll have to give me a heads up on the venue and the parking situation, if you'd be so kind, as I've never been there.
Houston does have a couple of redeeming qualities. You'll never run out of restaurants to go eat at, that's for sure. I lived there for a year, but moved because I knew no one and no one wants to make friendlies in Houston, seemingly.
Have fun at the Shins! I used to love them so so much.

other than drinking, eating, and shopping I can't think of much.

The one place I visit every time I go to Houston is El Patio (6444 Westheimer.) Very strong margaritas and decent mexican food.

Texas as a whole offends me. ;)

I do not like Houston at all so i would be a bad person to ask about it
