Top events you don't want to miss this weekend
Ever been to a queso bowl? Or seen the Sound of Music live? Those are just a couple of events topping what to do this weekend, plus a show with Maverick City and Kirk Franklin.

HOUSTON, Texas -- This weekend, the hills are alive with a Houston stage return of one of the most cherished movies of all time. One of the hottest musical acts of the summer heads to town, as does a decidedly clean comic. A local brewery gets totally cheesy, and the Moody Center presents a fun family day. And, some female bartenders take action following a controversial Supreme Court ruling.

Enjoy and stay cool. Here are your best bets for the weekend.

A.D. Players presents The Sound of Music

Vienna, 1938. The hills are alive with the sound of music - at least that's what Maria believes. The iconic American musical follows the story of free-spirited, young Maria, who finds her place, purpose, and love within the home of the Von Trapp family. Set against the backdrop of the building conflict with Nazi Germany, this story of triumph in the face of adversity has stood the test of time. This is event is through 2:30 p.m. Saturday and runs through 8 p.m. Sunday, August 14.
