Things to do in Houston when you're dead... In March.
I'm being sent to a training for work at the beginning of March. I will be in the vicinity of Rice College with unknown means of transportation.
Where can a guy pick up some practice in the area for a few days?

You're, I'd guess, a 20 minute or so drive from Elite Martial Arts; a great group of guys, they do BJJ, Kickboxing, FMA, anything you can imagine. They have a whole mess of classes throughout various times, and I think are somewhere in the neighborhood of 100 bucks a month.
A longer drive (i.e, probably 40 minutes) will get you to my Boxing gym. They do straight up boxing, and have kickboxing classes Mondays and Thursdays. They're open M-F 5-9, S 10-12. Also a really good gym, the guys are fairly friendly, only 35 bucks for a month.

Elite Martial Arts is a good place, I know a guy from the club I used to frequent (the University of Houston MMA Club) who trains/has trained there. Don't know what their open mat policy is or how much they charge for mat use, though. You could also try out the Houston Metro Fight Club, which is close to the University of Houston.
On another note, while you're in Houston you should try eating at Niko Niko's, which is a good Greek restaurant on Montrose, as well as This is It Soul Food on West Gray.

One place you might want to avoid from that list is Bam Bam Martial Arts, which I hear is kinda pricey. However, I'm not sure if this translates to expensive mat fees, as I've never been there.
