5 things to do this weekend

February 24, 2017 GMT

The world is a little better when the weather is wonderful. With that in mind, this week’s five pack of things to do includes outdoor options.

But, if you’d rather stay inside, we got you.

Billy Crystal

You know what you’re getting with this veteran and dependable comedian/actor: middle-of-the-road humor that’s usually entertaining. But this night might be a bit different as Crystal takes questions from moderator, and fellow comedian, Bonnie Hunt.

When: 8 p.m. Saturday

Where: Smart Financial Centre, 18111 Lexington, Sugar Land

Tickets: $54-$154; 281-207-6278, smartfinancialcentre.com

Houston Creole Heritage Festival

A celebration of Houston’s diverse community and heritage of the Creole/Cajun culture.

When: 9 a.m.-9 p.m. Saturday

Where: Discovery Green, 1500 McKinney

Tickets: $10; houstoncreolefestival.com

Levy Park grand opening


Outdoor celebration with live music, food trucks and family activities. Grupo Fantasma performs at 6 p.m.

When: 10 a.m.-6 p.m. Saturday

Where: 3801 Eastside

Information: levyparkhouston.org

Fake news films

Though best known for pouring beer, the Alamo Drafthouse is biting into the fake news bit by hosting screenings of movies about or involving journalism. On tap today: Sam Raimi’s “Spider-Man” films, “Broadcast News” and “Fletch.”

When: Noon Saturday

Where: 531 S. Mason, Katy

Info: drafthouse.com

Surreal life

Gazing at a Ron Mueck sculpture, you confront what it means to be human at a level that’s more than skin deep - literally through pores and hair and body fluids that are part of the realism in his scaled (up or down) sculptures. See the work up close as the Museum of Fine Arts, Houston, opens an exhibit of his work.

When: 12:15 p.m. Sunday

Where: 5610 Main

Information: $13-$18; 713-639-7300, mfah.org
