  1. Agree on Los Tios. The food is just plain old school Tex-Mex, not really fantastic but their Margartias are awesome. If I have three margaritas there I need to be shoveled out of my chair.
  2. I never, ever rent a car when I'm out of town on business. I either use taxis, walk or Uber. You can get an Uber into downtown from this location for about $5-$7. I live right up the street and use Uber every weekend night. It's so cheap it's not even worth putting on the expense account. That being said, you're a little under a mile from a tunnel entrance from here. If I lived here and worked downtown I'd walk it everyday unless it was storming.
  3. Numbers would do well in that building.
  4. Surveyors are on the Tila's site today.
  5. I actually go there quite often even though it's not the best food because I live very close, so I can walk over and can bring my dog. The waitstaff tell me Tila's is a very difficult place to work.
  6. I went there last night and talked to the manager, didn't ask about this specifically but he said business is great. I kind of wish they would close though, we could use a better restaurant on his corner. The food is just OK and the margaritas are not very good.
  7. OK, I just counted. Almost 1/3 of the topics on the unread stream are garbage from bots. We've got 10 votes for getting rid of them on here and none for keeping. It's becoming more and more painful to come to this site to see real posts. Can someone please explain why the site has decided to use these spam bots? If you're getting paid for linking to news articles great, you have to make money. Otherwise you are just driving people away from the site for no reason.
  8. Still under construction. It's been over 4 years now. This has got to be even longer than block 334 was. They've really never stopped working on it, just never many people on site.
  9. If they are getting paid for it I would understand. If not, why clutter up the site with garbage that no one reads or comments on?
  10. I can't imagine why anyone would think these bots are a good idea. Is the site getting paid to have these bots post? If so at least that would make sense.
  11. Yes, the bots are ruining HAIF. I've ignored H. Ham and Otto Mation but still see them in the unread content feed. I find myself coming here less and less because I have to weed through so much garbage.
  12. http://www.chron.com/entertainment/restaurants-bars/article/Teala-s-site-to-become-new-neighborhood-10834308.php
  13. The people that live in the neighborhood do. I walk to Kroger, Buffalo Bayou Park, River Oaks Theatre all the time and I see my neighbors out walking quite often.
  14. We got bike lanes way before critical mass. They were mandated by the feds. Even my hardcore biking friends hate critical mass. The PR damage they've done is far worse than any good they've done.
