Sometimes the best nights are unplanned. But sometimes it can be difficult coming up with something to do on the spot. That’s what we’re here for. (You can still pretend it was spontaneous and unplanned–we won’t tell.)

From Drag Diva Brunch to Sarah McLachlan, here are some fun date ideas in Houston this week.
