Thursday, January 23 - Our daughter, Carrie, treated us to a night out on the town on Saturday. We met a small group of Carrie's friends (eleven actually) at Chuey's Mexican Restaurant, in the Theater District of Houston. The place was packed....too packed! They are a well-known restaurant in Houston serving the typical huge plates of Mexican food at very reasonable prices. Guess that's why the place was packed.

After dinner we all rode a few blocks to the Music Box Theater.

This little theater is located among the bustling art galleries, theaters, and trendy restaurants in the Theater District of the Upper Kirby Avenue area Houston. If that sounds sophisticated and expensive to you, I think that was the intention when naming this area.

The theater was “sold out” which isn't surprising since ticket prices were a special 50% off. This is a small theater seating 150 people. The show was a “Year in Review” featuring highlights of songs from their 2013 shows.

The five singers sang show tunes, country, classical, oldies, and current top 40 selections. All-in-all, they did an excellent job and provided a very entertaining evening. We thought the Phantom of the Opera was their best selection. The show lasted about two hours with a 15 minute intermission at the mid-point.


At the late night hour of 10 p.m., it was time for us “older folks” to head home and let the younger crowd party the night away. There are certainly enough places for them to enjoy themselves in this part of town. Thanks, Carrie, for a wonderful dinner and night at the theater. We had a great time!

Thanks for stopping by. Hope to see y’all back real soon. Hope you have a great day!


  1. Sounds like a wonderful evening for sure! I'm sure the younger crowd were planning on doing just what you said . party the night away!

  2. A fun evening you had, and it only seems like yesterday that we would party the night away, not so much anymore.

  3. We love theater. When we lived in Shreveport we had season tickets to to different theaters in town.
    We are in Freeport now. Let us know when you are free to meet somewhere. Let's wait til the ice

  4. Big cities offer active youngens plenty of things to see and do. I think that's why our son likes Phoenix and our daughter likes Denver. Looks like Houston is equally fun. You'll need to hit the road just to relax after hanging with the younger crowd... LOL.

  5. You wild and crazy guys, staying up until 10 o'clock, wow. Looks like fun.

  6. As far as partying goes my night ends around 9pm so you guys outdid me. Nice of Carrie to include the "old folks" with all her friends. Not too many kids will do that nowadays - good for her - and you!!

  7. Sounds like a very fun evening!

  8. What a wonderful daughter!! Sounds like a fun evening to help keep yourselves young:)

    Hope you aren't freezing over there. Sure sounded cold on the weather this morning. The southern warmth will arrive one day!

  9. Carrie's a great event planner! What a nice evening to share with the youngins'!

  10. What a delightful evening!!!! I am always encouraged when a restaurant is crowded....good sign that the food is excellent!!
    The Music Box Theater sounds very nice...a good ending to a wonderful evening!!!

  11. I believe that this was not the first time for Carrie to do something special like that. What a sweet youngin you brought up.

  12. What a great treat for the two of you! Sounds like a wonderful production. :)

  13. We like Chuys, good tex mex, and that sounds like a good show.


Thanks for leaving us a comment. We enjoy reading them. Have a great day!
