Shawn Mendes & Charlie Puth

July 22 | Toyota Center

While you might not want to admit it, you've probably been jamming out to these guys in your car, and let's face it—they're pretty good. Before you unleash your inner Woo Girl to “Treat You Better,” Puth will open the show with popular hits “We Don’t Talk Anymore” and “Attention.” So bring yourself, bring your friends, bring your kids because the musical stylings of these guys are perfect for all ages. —Julia Gsell

Tickets from $39. 1510 Polk St. 844-379-0370. 

Houston World Series of Dog Shows

July 19-23 | NRG Park 

Coiffed canines will race through obstacle courses, catch Frisbees and strut their stuff all weekend long at NRG Park. Grooming and breed judging competitions during the week end with “Best of Breed” winners in each category and lead up to Friday, Saturday and Sunday, which each culminate with “Best of Show” winners. —Julia Gsell

Tickets from $10. 1 NRG Park. 281-536-0528. 

Bridal Extravaganza Show at George R. Brown Convention Center

July 22-23  | George R. Brown Convention Center

This event is timely especially after Florida-based bridal shop, Alfred Angelo, has apparently shut down all of their stores without telling their customers. Brides are now being forced to scramble for something new as the special day gets closer and closer. Brides, bridesmaids, mothers-of-the-bride, grooms and wedding planners can have their pick of over 350 vendors in 700 displays who cater exclusively to the wedding industry. —Bianca Rodriguez  

$15. 1001 Avenida De Las Americas. 281-340-7777.

Upgrade your yoga experience with Goat Yoga Houston

July 22-23 | Butler's Courtyard 

This is exactly what it sounds like: Bring your yoga mat and showcase your best downward dog, surrounded by at least 20 baby goats. The class is targeted towards beginners and includes an extra 30 minutes afterward for mingling with the goats. Make sure to meet the two newly adopted kids, Ray Charles and Conway Twitty, who lost their mom shortly after birth when she ran away during fireworks on the Fourth of July. Be prepared for unwarranted body climbing.—Hannah Lauritzen   

Tickets $35. 122 N Michigan Ave. League City, 281-638-9099,

The 39 Steps

July 21 | Alley Theatre

Get spooked at The 39 Steps. The play returns to the Alley Theatre as part of ExxonMobil's Summer Chills series. Four actors play over 150 characters in a fast-paced tale of adventure, romance and murder—not to mention an international spy ring—that's sure to have you doubled over with laughter. —Cara Maines

Tickets from $26. 615 Texas Ave. 713-315-5454.
