Friends visiting for the weekend

My boyfriend and I are having another couple visit for the weekend. We just moved to Houston and want to plan some fun activities possibly including being out in the nice weather. Any have suggestions that don't cost a lot?

There couldn't be a better weekend for visiting the zoo and Hermann Park. The zoo has a low admission cost, and the park is free. Take a picnic, some bread for the ducks, and you've got an inexpensive day. If you get tired of the park, you can always get on the MetroRail, ride it to downtown and back, just to see the sights--it's fairly inexpensive too.

Or you'd be within a few blocks of the museum district, many of which have minimal admission fees. Lots of alternatives close together. Have fun!

Menil is pretty cool, and it's free.

NBA Jam Session (George Brown Conv Center), the activities at Discovery Green with Bud (free). Remember this is the NBA All Star Week-end here in Houston.
