If you’re fresh out of ideas for adventures to embark on for the weekend, you’re in luck — literally. Ahead of St. Patrick’s Day, swing by Sports Creek for yoga with leprechauns and green beer, or tour the city with muralist Hannah Bull.
If you like getting lost in the world of enchantment, magician Curt Miller will be in town all weekend with plenty of tricks to make you a believer, and rapper Bun B is bringing the entire city out Friday for his H-Town Takeover at the Houston Rodeo. Plus, you can taste Rosalie’s limited-time menu the entire month of March.
We’ve rounded up the five best things to do in Houston this weekend:
The Conjurer: An Intimate Magical Experience With Magician Curt Miller
Do you believe in magic? Well, Houston’s very own Curt Miller will convince you. Known as the Corporate Magician, Miller’s intimate act features audience interaction, family-friendly comedy, and up close and personal magic tricks. But hurry, Miller is in high demand, with only 37 seats per show.
JW Marriott Hotel by The Galleria, 5150 Westheimer Road. Friday, March 11-Saturday, March 12, at 8 p.m. Tickets start at $85. More information here.
Taste Rosalie’s limited-time Rose menu
Things look a little different this month for Rosalie, the Italian kitchen in Downtown Houston. The restaurant has a limited-time Rose menu, inspired by owner Chris Consentino's great-grandmother, Rosalie. Gleaned from romance, the menu features two entrees, a dessert, and suggested wine pairings. Diners can choose between the Lady and the Tramp spaghetti and meatballs, or Rose Chicken & Radicchio, a rose-brined chicken, garnished with blood orange and rose petals.
Rosalie, 400 Dallas St. Available through March. Meals start at $21. More information here.

The rodeo is in full swing, and Friday marks Black Heritage Day, commemorating African American ancestry and culture.
