New restaurants on Century Drive

restaurant next level burger

Next Level Burger offers 100% “plant-based” burgers along with sandwiches, salads, soups, and a kid’s menu. They are open for breakfast, lunch, and dinner. I had the sun-dried tomato basil burger yesterday along with sautéed kale. Both were great! Their kid’s menu looks promising for my somewhat picky kids…might have to take them soon. To view their full menu, go to

Chicken Bonz is another new restaurant on Century Drive. I haven’t been there yet. They have chicken, burgers, salads, a variety of dipping sauces for the chicken pieces, and picnic take-out specials. Go to for their menu.

Footzone has “noon runs” on Wednesdays…meet at Footzone downtown at 12 noon. Runs are 3-5 miles with different pace groups. You can also order a taco from the Taco Stand and they will deliver it to Footzone and have it for you when you return. They also have a “Mom’s Running Group” on Thursday mornings at 9:30. Runs are 3-4.5 miles with different pace groups. Both runs are free.

How about “Laughter Yoga”? That sounds pretty fun! A half hour of simple movements that facilitate laughter and childlike playfulness during your lunch hour. Fun, energizing, and healing. Every Tuesday from 12:30-1:00 at the Center for Compassionate Living – 339 SW Century Drive, suite 203. Donation basis.

Fleet Feet on NW Galveston has Saturday morning runs on roads and trails from 8:00-9:30am. Meet at Fleet Feet, all paces welcome. Free.
