Ive been there a few times for business. A great community!

http://www.yihouston.org/ this is the young Israel Shul that has daily minyanim. There is also a large chabad center there. Saba's Kosher Kitchen is excellent pizza shop.

Number one thing to do in Texas is shooting  8). There are many ranges and its quite cheap. I have also done biking in downtown Manhattan which is nice.

One more thing forgot to add. The entire bakery at the local Krogers is kosher!!

Visiting Houston today, enjoying the JetBlue $69 ow fares from a few weeks ago.
Was at two WM's and both had NON-working ATMs.
Also ran into a frum family who told me that the deli and ?restaurant inside the Randall's supermarket was under HK hashgacha.
They said, "if you follow that hashgacha".
Anyone with more info to share?
Thanks

  • Location: The value of a forum such as this one is not in that one can post a question and receive an answer, but in that the question has most likely been asked before, and the answer is available to him that will but only use the search function.
  • Programs: 1. Search on google. 2. Search in the right board of DDF with a general word or two. 3. Read the wiki. 4. Read the thread. 5. Ask away.

Not really. NASA is more than an hour away. 
If it's rodeo season maybe but that's an hour away also.
