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!
