Twice in the last decade, Houston Press have compiled list of the 100 things every Houstonian must do. The first list was nearly 10 years ago and limited to a very small radius around the city (30 miles). In 2017, it was expanded it to include distances slightly farther away — up to 100 miles — given at how much is so close to us. How can we exclude the Gulf of Mexico?

In 2022, many things have changed and some remain the same. If you are familiar with these lists, you’ll probably see a few old favorites. They are classics for a reason. We’ll point them out as we go along. If not, now you can take a look at all the stuff you need to do in the coming weeks and months. We’ll be releasing these 10 at a time over the next couple months, so enjoy and (cue Jurassic Park music) welcome to the Houston Bucket List, 2022 edition.

Have some vegetarian Indian food inside a Hare Krishna temple at Govinda’s.

One of our favorite things to do with visitors from out of town is take them to the ISKON of Houston temple on 34th Street in Oak Forest, drive around back and introduce them to Govinda’s, the lovely little Indian food buffet serving up vegetarian (and vegan) food six (Note – we are actually open seven days) days a week. Like all buffets, it’s reasonably priced, but unlike most, it is absolutely spotless and loaded with Indian classics that rotate from day to day. Twice (it is three times on Wed, Fri and Sun) each week, it goes 100 percent vegan as well. And, if you feel so inclined, visit the temple for Darshan when it is open. It’s yet another way to explore Houston’s extreme diversity and get some killer food in the process.
