Things to do in Houston this weekend

-- The Houston Auto Show, now through Sunday the 30th, is offering free test drives on dozens of different models -- GMC, Buick, Chevy (including the Camaro), Toyota, and Kia. There are also free gifts for test-drivers.

-- The Chevron Houston Marathon and the Aramco Houston Half-Marathon will run through the streets of H-Town on Sunday.

This lists the street closures, so whether you're spectating or avoiding you'll know where to go. If you need a reason not to go, click here.

-- Sam Houston Race Park's thoroughbred season gets under way with the Connally Turf Cup, a $200,000 affair attracting some outstanding entries.

-- And if that's not enough for you, check out Artopia, sponsored by the Houston Press.

-- In a more partisan vein, the HCDP Comedy Showcase will be Sunday evening from 6-9, in coordination with the Houston Comedy Union.
