  1. Nah - just more saber rattling by the opposition.

    Queer Us Folk

    It's all been going to Hell in a faaaaaabulous candy apple red handcart ever since the demise of the giant disco ball over Montrose & Westheimer during Pride. 🥷
  3. Not to mention the need for blackout curtains nearly a half mile away... and now they want to elevate Katy inside the loop.
  4. "We're downtown." Really???? That response is even worse than the busted door.
  5. Perhaps drinking was part of the event planner's creative process... or not... 🍄🍄🍄
  6. Fred's Italian Corner in the strip center at Greenbrier and Holcombe closed around the same time as Buon Appetito. 🥲 Let's also pour one out for Patronella's (Marvin Zindler's fave). Not quite the entire full on deal, but Spaghetti Western on Shepherd between Washington and the Katy is still around - haven't been there in a while, though.
  7. Some of us are old enough to remember when welcoming refugees (regardless of the reason for displacement) and helping them resettle was considered a very American thing to do.
  8. Also, it'll keep you from getting blinded by the jacked up brodozers' headlights.
  9. You can buy from dealer stock or you can order - the proportion of stock vs order varies from make to make.
  10. Can't help but wonder how much Weingarten Realty's recent merger with the current property owner had to do with this...
  11. Your calculations are OK, it's your example that's off. Apples to apples, at 28 feet, four inches in diameter the San Antonio pipeline has significantly more capacity than the 48 inch Alaska pipeline: https://www.ksat.com/news/2018/10/18/how-a-giant-water-tunnel-saved-downtown-san-antonio-during-the-flood-of-98/
  12. Rebuilding the Southwest Freeway interchange just might have a little teensy bit to do with congestion on the West Loop, as well.
  13. Depending on the size of the contractor and its creditworthiness, officers frequently personally guarantee the bond indemnities.
  14. Actually, the bonding company or companies for whoever is responsible will be the ones coughing up the cash (and as is often the case with insurance companies, it'll likely have to be dragged out of them) because public projects have to have performance bonds. Any litigation / arbitration will probably have XYZ Co as the named defendants, though. That said, whoever's bonding company(/ies) pays up will probably have to reimburse the bonding company (or as suggested, get cleaned out), since construction bonds are generally secured, typically at least with indemnities and unless often with hard assets.
  15. Mill and overlay is peeling off most if not all of the current surface and repaving with asphalt. It can work pretty well IF the asphalt bonds well to the substrate, and IF the substrate is in decent shape. It's what they're doing currently east of Weslayan.
  16. Sorry about the repetition - the "submit" button wasn't responding as it normally does.
  17. IIRC, at least when the stadium was built the measurement was front door to front door, and Annunciation "moved" its main entrance to accommodate the stadium. Again IIRC that's when Annunciation's fencing on that side went up.

  18. Never much cared for 3 Allen either - although its color seems to fit its theme.
  19. And for people who really, really have to park out in the sun or rain or whatever Nature has to offer.
  20. feh. Bro. Jordan probably expects people to use that stick behind the steering wheel that turns on those funny flashing lights, too.
