In business for more than 25 years, Ray’s Alterations & Shoe Repair keeps heels tapping and pant seams from snapping with expert shoe repairs and garment alterations. A heel repair for women’s shoes ($10) or men’s dress shoes ($18.95) ensures continued metatarsal mirth and prevents disgruntled tootsies from retaliating by tying themselves around the bedpost at night. Ray’s expert tailors can hem a pair of pants—or a pant-shaped hat—for $13, adjust the waist for $18, or take out the hem on a plain ladies’ dress with no lining for $20. Men’s jackets are similarly tackled by the knowledgeable needle-wielders, with a full adjustment for $28 or just the sleeves for $25. Every alteration is different, so Ray’s offers on-the-spot fittings and estimates, with most small projects ready for pickup the next day.

Messages such as Are You Game? and Bang are scrawled in glow-in-the-dark graffiti on the black-lit walls of one of Indoor Tactical Sports' paintball and airsoft fields. The two-story facility, which declares itself the only indoor paintball arena in Houston, is air-conditioned to a crisp 65 degrees and houses a total of four fields where players can shoot at their friends with no-cleanup Reball paintball pellets or BBs from Airsoft guns. To ensure fair play, one referee for every 10 players patrols the fields and prevents participants from shooting their opponents in vulnerable spots, such as the working screenplay they carry around. In the gear shop, players can rent all the gear necessary to play, including guns, masks, ammunition, and air canisters.
