Houston Ice Festival

Feb 1 | Saint Arnold Brewing Company

If you’re missing that frigid winter weather, you can get a shiver of that 32-and-below-inducing feeling at the inaugural Houston Ice Festival. In addition to the family-festival standards of food, music and arts activities, the day-long event features interactive ice sculptures and an ice sculpting competition where four of the country’s best chiselers—including Houstonian and festival organizer Reverend Butter—will battle it out for the ultimate title. It’s sure to be a lot of fun as the competition heats up. Free. Saint Arnold Brewing Company, 2000 Lyons. More info and tickets at

Guess Who’s Coming to Dinner

Thru Feb 16 | The George Theater

Even though this stage adaptation of the Academy Award-winning film is still set in 1967, Guess Who’s Coming To Dinner continues to touch on themes that remain relevant today. It’s really no wonder A.D. Players Mainstage chose to kick off its 2020 season with it. Tickets from $25. The George Theater, 5420 Westheimer Rd. 713-526-2721. More info and tickets at
