Ophaka's, which is downtown, has good Thai noodle dishes. So does the Drunken Noodle in Town and Country shopping center at Alameda and Everhart.

For Mexican food we usually go to one of the two Acapulco restaurants. One is on the corner of Weber and Gollihar and the other is on Airline, close to McCardle.

For breakfast and lunch with a diner atmosphere, Price's Chef is always a good bet. It's at the corner of Alameda and Palmero at 6-points. The Nuevo Cafe and Hester's are also located at 6-points. The NC is on Ayers and Hester's address may be on Palmero as well. It's attached to the Bleu From emporium.

Our favorite Italian food is Luciano's. Oddly enough, it's also at 6-Points, on the corner of Alameda and Clifford.

None of these restaurants are tourist destinations. All of them are good.

"Ophaka's" is actually "Ophraka's" and "McCardle" is "McArdle." "Bleu From" is "Bleu Frog." Sorry about all that. Also, Price's Chef is only open for lunch, and I think that's true of Hester's and the Nuevo Cafe as well.

looking at the weather, it may not be optimal to go out to the beach in the near future.
i have the aquarium on my list of things to do (gf's never been....), but what other "indoor" activities does corpus offer? (besides the movies....or shopping....)

What is it about the weather that you think won't be good for going to the beach?

forecast has overcast predictions with possible thunderstorms 30-40% chance of rain.
granted we do have the same forecast in san antonio, and really haven't seen much rain, i'd just like to be prepared with a backup plan if a rain cloud ruins anything.

I'm guessing you'll have perfect beach weather, but if you don't, the Art Museum of South Texas is nice, as is the Art Center which is by the downtown Whataburger. The Museum of Science and History is kind of funky, but good for a couple of hours. The majority of the exhibits on the Lexington are inside.

You could check and see if the Harbor Playhouse or the Aurora Arts theater is having a matinee. Same goes for any TAMUCC productions or maybe something at the Performing Arts Center at TAMUCC.

And there's always the Selena Museum, if you're interested in that.
