We’re heading into the first weekend of 2013 and NEWS 92 FM’s Martha Martinez has some suggestions. Here’s what to do in Houston this weekend, in 92 seconds or less:

Two takes on ice for your pleasure: Friday evening, the Houston Aeros host the Texas Stars in AHL hockey action at Toyota Center. Game time, 7:05 p.m.

On Saturday, head to Discovery Green for the Fifth Annual Ice Carving Competition.  Artists from across the country will coax sculptures out of giant ice slabs with chainsaws, blowtorches and chisels.  From 10 a.m. until 5 p.m. Very cool!

If you prefer to float over your water, take in the Houston International Boat Show at One Reliant Park.  It’s the biggest show of its kind on the Gulf Coast, with more than a thousand watercraft, from jetskis to luxury yachts.  It opens Friday and runs through January 13th.

At McGonigel’s Mucky Duck Friday, it’s a double show, with Texas Johnny Boy and the South Austin Moonlighters; on Saturday, it’s Shake Russell.

Barrio Dogs hosts a community awareness and pet adoption day from noon until 4 p.m. Saturday at Natural Pawz in River Oaks, near the corner of West Gray and Shepherd.

Also Saturday at the Houston Museum of Fine Arts at 4 pm, it’s the Houston Film Critics Society Awards: Best of 2012.  Admission is free, but tickets are required.  A few are still available.  Call 713-639-7771 for yours.

Sunday at the Grand Opera House in Galveston, it’s “Shatner’s World:  We Just Live In It.”

The incomparable William Shatner is on stage to share his life in video clips, witty stories and heart-felt reminiscences.  Show time is 7 p.m.
