  1. A pic from the other night and the cocktail menu. You can see the churros with boozy whipped cream.
  2. I know there wouldn't be a drive-thru, but would love a donut place to pop up in the East End. Maybe here would be a good place?
  3. I completely agree. Food was cooked well, which is what I was looking for. However, if I had known it was going to take that long I would have gone to Roostar 😄 For the first few weeks they were open, they were literally running out of food on Sundays. They are closed on Monday/Tuesday so I kind of get it. The waitress we had there was really good and she said she was actually driving down from Cleveland to work. She was also taking shifts at two other restaurants trying to decide which one paid more. Restaurant labor shortage definitely real!
  4. Had lunch at Acadian Coast today and it was pretty rough. There were 3 of us, and we were the 8th-10th people in the restaurant, and it took more than 30 minutes for us to get our food. Waitress said that it was the head chef's first day off after working 23 days in a row and the sous chef just had a baby and is out, so the line cook was the only one back there and that she was having to help prepare the food. I know things are tough in the industry, but not a great experience. Lunch took north of an hour.
  5. I'm pretty sure the address is 2024, so I'm guessing it is that.
  6. It's Chili's Suburban Couture. Also, I'm guessing the realistic scenario is something like a 7/11 with their Laredo Taco Company in it, but maybe you'll get an actual separated spot.
  7. Permits issued for building permit. Looks like gas station is moving forward.
  8. Went by Night Shift last night and was really impressed. Service was really good and the drinks were really good. I think cocktails were fairly priced at $10-$12ish. The frozen drink Saturn (I think?) is passion fruit-based and delicious. They have a pretty limited food menu, but the churros for $7 were great. Manager said that their rooftop deck will be opening very soon. Business has been pretty brisk and they are really committed to being open until 2am 7 nights/week. Their menu mentioned that Sat/Sun brunch is coming.
  9. Excited for safe standing in the supporter section!
  10. I think that it'll be interesting to see what happens with the Transit Oriented Development now being in place. Basically all of these streets have some form of reduced parking minimums/pedestrian realm stuff/etc. There's a longer brochure out there, too. I think some interesting projects may pop up eventually. Yes, Hardy Yards is stuck in a rut, but these things happens. Things aren't dead.
  11. Hahaha. It's all good. And you're right, there are no westward plans. I was super excited when they added Washington to METRONext like 45 days before the vote but then they pulled it. Honestly, them going to 3 BRT stops along Inner Katy might "scratch the itch" for now.
  12. Please don't think I'm trying to dunk on you or anything, but they've had extensive talks and pretty much have a modified combined route laid out for green/purple line extension to Hobby laid out. The airport really wants them to use Telephone so that they can build a new car rental center there. Also, this is part of METRONext. This article is from about 2 years ago: https://www.houstonchronicle.com/news/houston-texas/transportation/article/Metro-leaders-optimistic-about-shared-13799310.php You are right that nothing is finalized (and there are a bunch of railroad tracks to cross),
  13. Cafe TH is closing. Last day is on Thursday.
  14. Far off? They'll be breaking ground in maybe 4-5 yearsish?
  15. If you don't like looking at the aesthetics of seeing wheels then maybe just close your eyes while you wait for it?
