  1. A sign on the door states reduction goes to 30% off at end of this month. Not sure reason- maybe food prices went way up- or maybe participation went way down and wasn’t worth it anymore?
  2. Michaelangos Restaurant @ 307 Westheimer

    Sigh that huge tree was torn down along with that building-- nothing but empty lot now.
  3. El Felix " Mothers" house torn down

    The little pink house on Grant street across from old El Felix has been torn down and cleared away. I was always told it was built for Felix Tijernia Mother some time in late 40's?
  4. Development in east montrose (fairview & mason)

    From what I heard- the developer asked that the Montrose TIRZ lines be redrawn to include this development.
  5. Is there a building downtown that has a glass elevator attached to an outside wall?
  6. Was Southland Hardware location sold to developers?

    Hmmmm guess I should have waited- A ND post says Hardware store not going anywhere..... guess I'm jittery since the flea market thingy. :/
  7. Yucatán Taco Stand

    Moderator edit: User trymahjong created new thread entitled "Yucatán Taco closed? Is that a weirdly bad luck location?" It seems hard for restaurants to be successful at that Montrose location.
  8. 10 cool things about Houston in the 1980s

    Reading this made me think how much I miss the pipe organ pizza in memorial city...... what happened to that pipe organ after that place closed. another memory sparked a small restaurant La Grenouille Verte out in Memorial are, where we'd go to celebrate an anniversary. but also the number of people who just stood at each intersection downtown, the light would change and no one moved just stood there. Oh and the number of mounted patrol downtown.
  9. I read a post about this on my nextdoor site------is it true?
  10. Best neighborhood for gay families?

    Wow I hope I can be the voice of caution---- friendliness of neighbors might not be enough for a successful transition if the school your kids attend is a zero. Maybe a little research on quality schools, then do the pros and cons of each neighborhood.
  11. Requesting New Forum in Houston Neighborhoods Section

    With the completion of Emancipation Park, the designation of Emancipation Blvd as an " economic cooridor" and Mayor Turners promise of special monies set aside for third ward improvements......a stand alone category would be a good thing. There should be many new things that come up for discussion.
  12. Will COH ban single use plastic bags

    The discussion continues- Read the editorials in today's chronicle https://www.google.com/url?sa=t&source=web&cd=2&ved=0ahUKEwjF-brBjdnUAhWDZCYKHQB4CMUQFggOMAE&url=http%3A%2F%2Fwww.houstonchronicle.com%2Fopinion%2Feditorials%2Farticle%2FPlastic-bag-bans-11243618.php&usg=AFQjCNH8Hx6slbK7fDhs6ta6uE31G-E67Q
  13. Bars and clubs in the 70's

    Was this in one of those big houses that got torn down, where the Townhomes are now? Have any pictures?
  14. The Montrose Management District wants your feed back

    http://www.houstonpress.com/newsblog/2017/06/13/montrose-management-district-faces-not-one-but-two-lawsuits-from-business-owners wow maybe there was plenty of feedback
  15. More Murals Found

    Avondale is just at the beginning of trying to secure a wall for a mural painting
