Twice in the past decade, we at the Houston Press have compiled our list of 100 things every Houstonian must do. The first list dates back almost 10 years and was limited to a very small radius around the city (30 miles). In 2017, we expanded it to include slightly further distances – up to 100 miles – given how far apart we are. How to exclude the Gulf of Mexico?

In 2022, many things have changed and some remain the same. If you’re familiar with these lists, you’ll probably see a few old favorites. They are classics for a reason. We will report them as they arise. Otherwise, you can now take a look at everything you need to do in the weeks and months ahead. We’ll be releasing these 10 at once over the next two months, so enjoy and (listen to Jurassic Park music) welcome to the Houston Bucket List, 2022 Edition.

Houston Bucket List Part 3
Houston Bucket List Part 2
Houston Bucket List Part 1

Get your country dancing at Neon Boots Dance Hall and Saloon.

Houston is not exactly the Urban cowboy town of the 70s, with blue-collar cowboys on every corner. We’ve grown since the days of mechanical bulls and good old boys. But don’t think for a second that we don’t know how to handle ourselves on a dance floor. Enter the Neon Boots Dance Hall and Saloon (11410 Hempstead Rd), one of the finest and oldest dance halls in town. Housed inside the former Esquire Ballroom where Willie Nelson, Patsy Cline and Merle Haggard once plied their trades, it features a huge dance floor and outdoor patio. It’s LGBTQ friendly, but everyone is welcome and on most nights you’ll see a very diverse crowd dancing and having fun. Very Houston.

Sit down with the Rockets Rowdies. [CLASSIC]

Back when Jeff Van Gundy was the coach of the Houston Rockets and the Toyota Center was relatively new, Van Gundy felt like the notoriously late and subdued crowds needed a jolt. The Rockets have organized a giveaway for fans willing to go the extra mile for each home game. These are the Rocket Rowdies. Decked out in Rockets gear and, in some games, the loudest fans in the arena, the Rowdies help liven up an occasionally sleepy Rockets crowd. Think Duke’s Cameron Crazies, but a little less crazy. Sit near them and howl and howl at your leisure.

Camp at Huntsville State Park. [CLASSIC]

Beneath a huge canopy of pine trees inside the 163,000-acre Sam Houston National Forest, about an hour north of Houston, lies Huntsville State Park, a beautiful park filled with campgrounds, of hiking trails and lovely Raven Lake. Year-round, the park welcomes hundreds of campers who rent screened enclosures, pitch tents, or lounge in RVs in the shady pine woods of East Texas. You’ll find kids swimming and kayaking on Raven Lake as well as some pretty serious anglers in small boats and canoes hunting for dinner. It’s beautiful and extremely well maintained from the lake and hiking trails to bathrooms and picnic areas.

Salsa dancing at Club Tropicana. [CLASSIC]

We don’t just do country dancing in Houston. With millions of Latinx people living in the area, you know we need to have some serious Latin dancing and Club Tropicana (3222 Fondren) is where you show it…or learn how if it’s your first time. What makes Tropicana so fantastic is the live musical atmosphere with salseros and salseras with their groups filled with percussion and horns. It’s jubilant and intense and has been producing salsa, merengue and other Latin dance music for over 20 years.

The James Turrell Skyspace on the Rice University campus is a must-see.

Bathe in light at the James Turrell Skyspace. [CLASSIC]

Imagine yourself standing inside the light. That’s how it feels to see the Skyspace on the Rice University campus, designed and built by artist James Turrell, who is also responsible for the lights in the tunnel under the Houston Museum of Fine Arts. Skyspace is unique, built into a man-made hill with lights that begin to shine each day at sunrise and sunset. Twilight Epiphany, as it is known, was built in 2012 and has dazzled visitors for a decade. The interior space is perfectly suited for musical performances and often hosts musicians from the adjacent Shepherd School of Music.

Let your dog go wild at Bill Archer Dog Park. [CLASSIC]

If you have a dog that desperately needs to run as far and as fast as possible and gets along well with other dogs, we have a park for you. The Bill Archer Dog Park is a massive 17-acre park with man-made water features, lots of tall trees, and wash stations for when your pups finally run out. The last time we were there, our pooch ran away from us and ran like he had been shot by a cannon. Luckily, the facility is fenced all around its huge space, and there are even mom and dad walking paths.

Drink a blue margarita inside Club No Minors at El Patio. [CLASSIC]

El Patio (6444 Westheimer) is a rather modest Tex-Mex joint on upper Westheimer that’s home to a poorly kept secret. Just after entering, to the right is a door with a handwritten sign saying:

club
No minors

What started as a simple warning that no one was of drinking age became the name of this speakeasy serving potent blue margaritas, classic Tex-Mex (they own the recipes from Felix’s restaurant once beloved) and, on weekends, dirty mariachis. . The space is dark and noisy with velvet paintings of nude women. That’s all an adult could want. Don’t miss the “mariachi” duet on the weekends that tunes offbeat versions of popular songs, in Spanish and otherwise.

Go ice skating (yes, ice skating) at Discovery Green. [CLASSIC]

Houston, particularly in June when we write this, isn’t exactly a place you would think of when it comes to winter activities, unless you’re planning on sitting on a patio in shorts and flip flops, what you would normally do in December. But, we go on and try to feel the holiday spirit by ice skating outdoors in downtown Discovery Green Park. It’s quite a unique experience in a city best known for the humidity and mosquitoes that glide along the (sometimes watery) ice on the occasional cold winter afternoon. Sure, you can skate inside the Galleria or Memorial City malls, but that’s the full experience.

Enjoy a glass of wine at 13 Celcius.

Yes, there are plenty of great places to grab a glass of wine (thank goodness!) in our beautiful city. Houston has become one of the most respected places in the country to eat great food and, subsequently, sip great wine. And perhaps the nicest place to join in is 13 Celcius (3000 Caroline), a rustic old dry-cleaning store in a nondescript, quiet part of Midtown that’s been modernized to include a massive marble bar. and a magnificent Spanish-style atrium. Loaded with an ever-changing wine list and experts ready to help you figure it out, there are no wine snobs here. They are happy if you are happy. It’s a fantastic place for a date night and don’t sleep on the small curated food menu. It includes the best sea bass salad in town and our favorite sandwich: bologna on a croissant with a fried egg.

Explore the city with the moles in the downtown tunnel system. [CLASSIC]

A friend called me once while standing on a downtown street corner on a hot Wednesday in July at lunchtime. “I know people work downtown. Where are they ? He stumbled upon one of the great mysteries of downtown Houston, the tangle of underground passageways that make up the downtown tunnel system. Stretching almost the entire expanse of downtown Houston, the tunnels are packed with shops and restaurants. Same day dry cleaning, passport photos, prescription refills, just about anything your daily worker needs, they have it. In the summer, it’s hyperactive with businesswomen in pantsuits and tennis shoes racing past lawyers and restaurant workers. It’s a bustling hive of activity and everything is underground.

Rayton’s Hadassah Alexander has ice skating at heart – Ridge Times https://figuristka.org/raytons-hadassah-alexander-has-ice-skating-at-heart-ridge-times/ Thu, 16 Jun 2022 04:00:00 +0000 https://figuristka.org/raytons-hadassah-alexander-has-ice-skating-at-heart-ridge-times/ Hadassah Alexander, a 15-year-old figure skater from Rayton, finished second in the beginner solo division of the ice and fire figure skating competition held at Grove Rink on Sunday May 29.

Hadassah Alexander, a 15-year-old figure skater from Rayton, finished second in the beginner solo division of the ice and fire figure skating competition held at Grove Rink on Sunday May 29.

Hadassah started figure skating in July 2021 and it was the first competition she entered.

She will take her first level test in June this year.

She has always loved dancing and has been taking ballet lessons since the age of five, but when she saw a figure skater walking past the Grove rink one day, she was mesmerized and drawn to it.

It looked like an ice ballet jumpsuit to her.

The problem was that being the second eldest of 12 siblings in the Forever family at Jabez House in Rayton, a home made up of biological, adopted and adoptive siblings, money for extramural activities is limited and with travel expenses to Pretoria to consider too, this dream seemed unattainable.

Where there’s a will, there’s a way, so when she found out that Evolution on Ice was offering figure skating lessons on a day that coincided with her brother’s tutoring in Pretoria, she jumped at the chance.

She started baking and selling crackers to friends and family in the community to help cover her course fees and ice rink fees.

A sponsor has volunteered to cover 75% of his training costs this year.

Hadassah said it has been an incredible blessing.

She continues to bake and sell buttermilk rusks to cover the remaining 25% of the costs.

Hadassah dreams of competing in the Olympics and recently tried out for a synchronized skating team.

This will again involve an additional cost for training, but nothing will prevent her from doing what she loves.

Hadassah Alexander realizes his biggest dream. (Photo: provided)

    Ice skating’s governing body voted this week to raise the minimum age for senior competition to 17, months after an Olympics drug scandal involving Russian teenager Kamila Valieva.

    The decision of the International Skating Union (ISU) congress in Phuket, Thailand, lifts the 15-year age limit and will be phased in, reaching 17 in the 2024-25 season.

    “It’s a very historic decision,” ISU President Jan Dijkema said after 100 countries and regions voted in favor of the measure, with just 16 opposed.

    Figure skater Valieva, then 15, was cleared to compete in the Beijing Winter Olympics in February despite failing a prior drug test, but collapsed after falling several times during his last performance.

    With the world spotlight on her and favorite for gold, she finished outside of the medals. Questions swirled about the influence of those around him following a tense and tearful post-routine encounter with his trainer.

    The ISU said raising the age limit was on its agenda long before the Valieva case and acknowledged it had a duty of care to elite teenage athletes.

    Ahead of the vote, chief executive Fredi Schmid said the ISU had faced media pressure and a “major attack” following the Olympics and reminded delegates that the reputation of the global body was stakes.

    “The moment of truth is obviously today because the credibility of the ISU will also be scrutinized. The media and the public will be watching us very closely so remember that,” he warned.

    Russia’s biggest names in figure skating have played down the decision – which will be in place for the 2026 Winter Olympics – with former coach-turned-media personality Tatiana Tarasova telling TASS: “We will win anyway “.

    Former skating star Alexander Zhulin, now a coach, told TASS: “The decision is mainly against us.

    “It’s obvious to everyone that at 15-16 our girls can’t be beaten. Everyone is against us now, so this decision was not surprising.”

    Russian teenagers Anna Shcherbakova and Alexandra Trusova won gold and silver in Beijing. Valieva was fourth.

    “Children First”

    The ISU medical opinion supported raising the minimum age to 17, arguing that it would benefit young skaters physically and mentally and help prolong their careers.

    “I believe that as administrators of the sport of skating, it is your moral obligation and duty to provide these young skaters with the opportunity and time to develop…the skills they need to succeed. at the senior level,” said Dr. Jane Moran. of the body’s medical commission said.

    “They have the right to develop as people during their teenage years… They don’t need us to force them to compete.”

    A medical report said the change would give junior athletes time to reach skeletal maturity.

    He also warned that some elite teenage athletes could experience delayed puberty by an average of two years due to the physical demands of training.

    He noted that some were at higher risk of developing eating disorders.

    The Athletes’ Commission surveyed almost 1,000 athletes and coaches, and 86% were in favor of lifting the age limit.

    Some representatives of smaller countries argued that the changes would negatively impact their talent pool as skaters and their ability to send athletes to elite competitions.

    But other smaller skating nations like Iceland and Ireland have argued the focus should be on protecting youngsters.

    “We have to remember that it’s about children first and athletes second,” said the Irish representative in Phuket.

    An amendment to raise the minimum age to 16 and then wait until after the 2026 Olympics in Milan-Cortina to reconsider the issue was defeated.

    Ice skating set to gradually raise minimum competition age from 15 to 17 after Kamila Valieva doping scandal https://figuristka.org/ice-skating-set-to-gradually-raise-minimum-competition-age-from-15-to-17-after-kamila-valieva-doping-scandal/ Tue, 07 Jun 2022 12:24:00 +0000 https://figuristka.org/ice-skating-set-to-gradually-raise-minimum-competition-age-from-15-to-17-after-kamila-valieva-doping-scandal/ The decision, taken after a vote at the 58th Congress in Phuket, comes after Russian skater Kamila Valieva, then 15, was embroiled in a doping scandal at the Beijing 2022 Olympics in February, which overshadowed the Games.

    The decision, taken after a vote at the 58th Congress in Phuket, comes after Russian skater Kamila Valieva, then 15, was embroiled in a doping scandal at the Beijing 2022 Olympics in February, which overshadowed the Games.
    In a statement released on Twitterthe world governing body said: “The ISU Congress has voted in favor of a gradual increase in the age limit from 15 to 17 years in the interests of the protection of physical and mental health and the emotional well-being of skaters.

    “There will be no change for the 2022/23 season, an increase to 16 for the 2023/24 season and an increase to 17 for the 2024/25 season and subsequent seasons.”

    Valieva tested positive for the banned heart drug trimetazidine, which can help with endurance.

    Even though the test was conducted in December 2021, it wasn’t analyzed and reported to the Russian Anti-Doping Agency (RUSADA) until February, resulting in Valieva’s provisional suspension – a day after she helped propel the Russian Olympic Committee (ROC) to a gold medal in the figure skating team event.

    But the skater was reinstated after an appeal and the Court of Arbitration for Sport (CAS) authorized her to compete in the Olympics, citing specific provisions related to her protected status as a minor.

    Valieva then competed in the individual figure skating event, where she fell several times and left the ice in tears, finishing in fourth place.

    The World Anti-Doping Agency (WADA) said it would investigate those around Valieva – the adults responsible for her skating and well-being.

    CNN has contacted the AMA for comment.

    Global Athlete, a group that works for change in the world of sport, has previously called for “immediate reform” of anti-doping systems and better safeguard protocols.

    “Raising the age limit is an important step, but a more important step is ensuring that athlete protection protocols are in place by all national federations,” said Rob Koehler, chief executive of Global Athlete. , in a press release.

    “Raising the age limit cannot be responsibly dissolved to ensure the protection of minors. Young athletes will continue to train to achieve their dream of international competition, therefore, a wide range of best practice protocols must be in place to protect every young child who enters the sport. This has to include reporting lines independent of third parties.”

    “The moment of truth is obviously today because the credibility of the ISU will also be scrutinized. The media and the public will be watching us very closely, so remember that,” he said.

    “Children First”

    The skating body’s medical opinion backed raising the age limit to 17, arguing that it would benefit young skaters physically and mentally and help prolong their careers.

    “I believe that as administrators of the sport of skating, it is your moral obligation and duty to provide these young skaters with the opportunity and time to develop…the skills they need to succeed. at the senior level,” said Dr. Jane Moran. of the body’s medical commission said.

    “They have the right to develop as people during their teenage years… They don’t need us to force them to compete.”

    A medical report said the change would give junior athletes time to reach skeletal maturity.

    “The concern is that during a period of known skeletal vulnerability, the adolescent athlete may be exposed to excessive training and competition loads associated with high level competition, which puts the athlete at greater risk of injury,” the medical report said.

    He also warned that some elite adolescent athletes could experience delayed puberty by an average of two years due to the physical demands of training and insufficient energy intake.

    He noted that some were at higher risk of developing eating disorders.

    The Athletes’ Commission surveyed almost 1,000 athletes and coaches and 86% were in favor of lifting the age limit.

    Some representatives of smaller countries argued that the changes would negatively impact their talent pool as skaters and their ability to send athletes to elite competitions.

    But other smaller skating nations like Iceland and Ireland have argued the focus should be on protecting youngsters.

    “We have to remember that they are children first and athletes second,” said the Irish representative in Phuket.

    An amendment to raise the minimum age to 16 and then wait until after the 2026 Winter Olympics to revisit the issue was defeated.

    Hektor Giotopoulos Moore sits in front of me on Zoom and begins listing countries, raising a finger for each new one he names.

    “Germany, Austria, Croatia, Belarus, Estonia,” Hektor says before raising his left hand, “oh, Australia and Russia of course,” he adds sincerely.

    Hektor, 19, has just listed all the countries he has traveled to in the past eight months with his figure skating partner, 16-year-old Moscow-born Anastasiia Golubeva.

    “It’s amazing,” he says, recalling the multiple international figure skating competitions the duo took part in between 2021 and 2022.

    Estonia, although just another country on his list, was the country in which Hektor and Anastasiia not only earned a silver medal, but made figure skating history.

    In April, the duo took part in the 2022 International Skating Union (ISU) World Junior Figure Skating Championships in Tallin, Estonia, and became the third Australian pairs team to medal at a world junior championship.

    When I ask the Melbourne-born junior champion what it’s like to win silver in Tallinn, he describes it as nothing short of “incredible”.

    “It was an amazing feeling at the time. Very proud and happy. I was proud of Anastasiia, myself and my coaches. Being there with them and having this achievement all together was a very nice experience” , he said.

    Anastasiia accompanied Hektor on the Zoom from her home in Sydney, beaming from ear to ear and sporting a jacket embroidered with the Commonwealth coat of arms.

    She admits winning was a whirlwind and she “didn’t really understand what was going on”.

    “We had the medal ceremony of course, but it wasn’t until I got home in the evening and phoned my mum that I was like ‘oh, I just finished second of a world championship!'”

    WATCH Hektor and Anastasiia’s silver medal performance at the 2022 International Skating Union (ISU) World Junior Figure Skating Championships in Tallin, Estonia.

    Anastasia tells The Greek Herald that she fell in love with ice skating at the age of one while watching her three-year-old sister skate in Moscow.

    “My mother told me that I had to wait. At the age of three, I was like ‘no, I can’t wait! I have to get on the ice and skate,” she says.

    As for Hektor, he took me to the town of Penrith, in Sydney’s Greater West, in 2010, where he and his siblings attended a public ice skating session.

    “After that, my older brother and sister wanted to try classes, so we all went to try classes. My older sister said ‘No, it’s not for me’, my brother and I skated together for a little while, but he stopped and here I am 12 years later,” he says.

    By “here,” Hektor is referring to a trip that saw him spend half a decade traveling between Australia and Russia to train in pair skating.

    “I skated alone for seven years, then in 2017 I went to Russia to try pair skating. I have been skating with Anastasiia for a year and a half now,” says Hektor.

    Olympic dreamers

    Hektor and Anastasiia are only at the start of their four-year campaign to represent Australia at the 2026 Winter Olympics in Italy, however, at the moment their focus is on Anastasiia who is taking her ninth grade exams. year in Moscow.

    During competitive seasons, the pair have 10 on-ice sessions a week – sessions Hektor describes as physically and mentally demanding.

    “You have to be extremely fit and I also have to be able to lift it over my head and throw it all over the place, so you get the physical sense of it. But it’s also very technical – you have to know what you do and be able to correct a small mistake at the time, otherwise you end up on your back,” he says.

    While struggling with the high risk and physically demanding nature of the sport, Hektor says there are still gendered assumptions that figure skating is a “wuss sport”.

    “Overseas you don’t really understand that, it’s more in Australia that people say ‘play rugby’ but I haven’t had any real challenges with that,” said the silver medalist.

    “To anyone who thinks like that, I would say try first because it’s a tough sport.”

    After completing their exams and given the Russian-Ukrainian conflict, the duo will meet in Belarus in June to resume training for the competitive season starting in August.

    As exams will soon be over for Anastasiia, she explains that the upcoming season is her “vibe”.

    “I love competition, it’s so much fun for me,” she says, which Hektor agrees “Competition is a big challenge but also gives you a huge adrenaline rush – it’s a great feeling. ”

    As the zoom interview expires in 60 seconds, I hastily ask Hektor what advice he has for anyone looking to tread a similar path to him: “take risks, get out of your comfort zone – try everything and do not hold back”.
