Want to have fun on a budget? Well, if you’re strapped for cash and don’t want to break the bank, here’s a list of fun and affordable things to do this weekend.

1. Kaval Boat Rides Kinder Lake

Each kayak will be piloted by one of our professional guides. Children must be signed in by a parent or guardian, no exceptions. Parents, you don’t have to ride if you do not want to.

2. A Few Good Men

A Few Good Men is Sorkin’s first play, which ran for nearly 500 performances on Broadway in 1989, became an Oscar-nominated film in 1992, and was re-conceived for a 2005 London revival. Originally inspired by true events (Sorkin’s sister served with the U.S. Navy Judge Advocate General’s Corps [JAG]), this taut, tense thriller erupts when two Marines are accused of the hazing death of a fellow Marine at Guantanamo Bay. This hard-hitting, suspenseful story puts the Marine code of honor on trial. The event is Mar 23-24. Location: Alley Theatre, 615 Texas Avenue, Houston, TX 77002. Adult Admission: $26.
