  1. Mike at Mountain Air has been our A/C guy since 2006... he's great! Cannot recommend him enough (and I'm actually calling him today for a furnace check)
  2. Town & Country/City Centre *update*

    Cyclone Anaya's is going to open October 6th. Nice!
  3. Town & Country/City Centre *update*

    New addition coming to CityCentre - 7,000 sq. ft. Tasting Room with a 6,500 sq ft patio. Nice!
  4. Reminds me of the corner of Winrock and San Felipe... they tore down a series of apartments and built 1 CVS and 4 banks, three of which are next to each other. Simply stupid and adds nothing to the area.
  5. Town & Country/City Centre *update*

    The plan is for another mid-rise but, yeah, it may be a while. I have no doubt that it will eventually happen. The places is primarily leased with restaurants and it gets packed in the evenings. Ruggles Green should open any day now and I think Cyclone Anaya's is close.
  6. Town & Country/City Centre *update*

    Spending more and more time at CityCentre and am really amazed on how busy it can get during the week. We were there last night and were commenting on how it looked like a weekend - patios at Ra, Yard House and Brio were full... plenty of people at Straits... people hanging out at Monnalisa... kids running in the plaza and a surprising amount of car and foot traffic. The permanent Ruggles Green sign is up and we also spotted this - http://www.floraandmuse.com/ will be opening. Cyclone Anaya's is coming along as is McCormick & Shmick's (not part of City Centre but across the street from Eddie V's). Nice!

    Funny... we had dinner on the sidewalk at Cafe' Rose' on Saturday night... one table was full of German speakers and another was a group of Scandinavians... couldn't pinpoint the exact language.
  8. What More Could You Ask For?

    I'll take it...
  9. Ignorance Is Bliss...

    Is that the Jenkins designed home? It was in bad shape and the terracotta tile looked so out of place. Glad to see it is getting fixed up.
  10. Town & Country/City Centre *update*

    Brio had a wait on Monday night... the place was buzzing.
  11. Ignorance Is Bliss...

    The bulk of the mods designed on Kimerbly were built by Floyd... at one point, he owned the whole block and then sold off other lots to a young upstart developer named Kickerillo. The house on Butterfly was always poorly maintained... I never saw any evidence of upkeep, be it the house or the lot. The house had a big crack in front and it looked like someone just filled it in with terracotta-colored spackle. A sad story - it was a great house with a pedigree, recognition and a great architectural connection. A sad loss. The best we can hope for is something like what is going up on the corner of Boheme/BW8. BTW, we walked through the house on the corner - you can see it take shape - very cool house. Who is the architect?
  12. Nice quasi-mod on Bunker Hill

    WOW!!! Really really sad to see that torn down. I talked to the owner once - it was a very cool house... http://spacecitymod.blogspot.com/2007/08/100-paul-revere.html
  13. Town & Country/City Centre *update*

    Actually, if you look at where the majority of growth has taken place in Houston (Sugarland, Katy, NW Houston), CityCentre is pretty much the population center of Houston. It has been shifting west for quite some time and that's why it was named City Centre. We went to Yard House last week for lunch - no problem getting in. BUT... we called the previous Friday night and it was a 1 1/2 hour wait. We've also had a chance to check out Cafe' Rose... very nice place for an espresso and a light bite.
  14. 1956 Parade of Homes

    very very cool...
  15. Town & Country/City Centre *update*

    Opened since the last post on this thread... Yard House Straits Bistro Alex Cafe' Rose' Under construction... Cyclone Anaya's Ruggles Green Chipotle Brio Tuscan Grille CityCenter hosted a NYE party on the plaza and it was full of people - band was playing outside, all restaurants/bars were full and there was a midnight fireworks show.
