  1. It was about time. At this rate, it will be finish once I retire. lol
  2. As long as parking comes with better lighting for the area, I am all for it! That is the most sketchy part of the walk home after enjoying an Astros/Dynamo game.
  3. UH made one mistake with their stadium. It should had been next to I-45. It would had been such a big statement for UH and Houston.
  4. Teapresso has their soft opening going on right now. They will start opening at 7am next week.
  5. The Trumpers got to eat somewhere I suppose. I went to the one in Rice Military several years back. It was empty and the food was bland and overpriced. Never went back and that was before the shenanigans from below. https://houston.eater.com/2020/4/23/21232948/memorial-federal-grill-harris-county-reopening-coronavirus
  6. Some of these tenants have been known for awhile. There was a file on the Midway site that appeared to have been uploaded by accident. It is somewhere in this tread probably towards the beginning of the year.
  7. This morning I saw a big tent and what appeared to be catering trucks. Groundbreaking, maybe?
  8. I guess Rooftop wont be coming back to this location. "Sad news for fans of the cinema club’s buzzy drive-in movie experience, The Drive-In off Navigation. “We’re sad to say that due to complications with city permitting, we aren’t able to re-open this venue,” the email notes." https://houston.culturemap.com/news/entertainment/08-05-21-rooftop-cinema-club-uptown-blvd-place-tickets-august-11-september-movies/
  9. Does anyone know what is the reason for Rooftop Cinema stopping movie screenings?
  10. Exactly my point! The Heights have been successfully fighting affordable housing. Karla Cisneros sure loves putting these type of projects in the East End, but fight them off in her neighborhood in the Heights.
  11. Thank you for sharing. I was not aware about the institute or the festival, but I will definitely add it to my list for the next time we are in San Antonio. I have to admit I have taken San Antonio for granted most of my life and mostly treated it as a pit stop in the way up to North Texas or the way down to South Texas. I appreciate the tip.
  12. Man, nobody should have to be worry about giving their constructive opinion be it a minority woman or a White man. I hope I didn't come across the wrong way. As I said, I agree with you. I was just expressing a general sentiment I have experienced growing up when people say something is too much of something, it is usually in a negative connotation. I was born and raised on the border and way too many people from outside the area flat out told me it is too "Mexican" or too "Hispanic" for them. In my teenage years, I moved to Oak Cliff in Dallas and over there people said it was too Black. Then I went to college in Waco, and over there the complaint was people were too religious, uptight, or a bit backwards. Neither was a panacea, but I enjoyed all of three despite any perceived shortcomings. With that said, I agree more should be done to highlighting the German, Irish, and polish ancestry of the area. Also not sure why Houston doesn't highlight more the original Chinatown was located in East Downtown.
  13. Let me start by saying I agree with you overall as one of those Hispanics living in the area. HOWEVER... the argument is usually presented in a disingenuous way. One counter example is Texas overall. Most White Texans are oblivious to Texas (Tejas, or Tejas and Coahuila) history prior to 1836. They often don't recognize that over the last 500 years, Texas was part of Spain or Mexico for over half of that period. Do I need to get started on the history of Native Americans in the state going back millennia. BTW, drinking margaritas on Cinco de Mayo doesn't count as recognizing Hispanic history or culture just as it doesn't count when I drink Guinness on St Patrick's day. My point is that there is usually a double standard when something is too Hispanic, too Black, too Asian, etc. It is just as irritating when I see people whine and loudly complain about affirmative action (mostly benefiting minorities and White women), but all of the sudden they get really quiet about legacy admissions (mostly benefiting White men). I know you are probably well intended and I don't get a negative vibes from any of your comments. Again, I agree with your view. I just think that should be the case across the board not just regarding the East End.
