What to do in Houston? (not the obvious?)

Dear Patient Readers of Texas,

As a Chicago chowhounder, I am excited to visit fair city of Houston from Wednesday through next Tuesday and I wanted to see what the foodie community recommends for a six day visit outside the normal recommendations. I've seen most of the museums on my previous visits, tried the excellent Tex-Mex food, savored the sales at the Galleria, and gaped at the sheer size of the shops on Bellaire. But what else do you recommend for fun?

To give everyone ideas:
- I love the unusual
- I also love open-air markets (a la the Eastern market in DC or Union Square in NYC)
- Music + Food = Good
- Ethnic food is always welcomed
- I'd like to see something that is uniquely Houston that I can't get anywhere else?

Thank you ahead of time!
