  1. An update: HPL hosted their grand reopening (virtually) TODAY! Yay! On their Facebook page from today (1/12/21), you can see the event recording including a virtual tour (can't seem to directly link to the event): https://www.facebook.com/houstonlibrary/
  2. I respectfully disagree. Businesses may provide jobs, but think of all the folks who commute, especially when you build an office campus somewhere like Greenspoint that have been historically and currently neglected. Those workers probably take the majority of their wages and spend them in other places. I applaud businesses and developers that are willing to work and listen to the communities they plan to move into and provide a thoughtful approach with how to work with communities to improve the surrounding neighborhood.

  5. Flores Neighborhood Library has been closed ever since Harvey, and I can't find any information about when or if it is set to reopen. The most recent news I've seen about it was from two years ago saying that they received a grant for renovations: https://www.houstonchronicle.com/news/houston-texas/houston/article/Flores-library-gets-United-Arab-Emirates-grant-13581740.php I've emailed HPL a couple of times to see what the status is, but I haven't heard back. I know they have a lot going on with COVID, so I'm not surprised, but it would be great to hear the status of this since it
  6. Is this HEB talk speculation/ rumor/ a dream? I'm just trying to gauge how hopeful I should be.
  7. Thanks! Folks on Nextdoor keep talking about Sprouts going in there, but I didn't think that was the case.
  8. This may have been mentioned previously and I couldn't find it, but have they announced the tenants?
  9. I also went last Friday night to see Tenet and had a good time. It was my first drive in movie, so I wasn't sure what to expect, but I thought, overall, it was a pleasant experience. There was one audio glitch in the middle of our showing, but they fixed it quickly and we didn't really have any problems. We brought a small AM/ FM radio, rolled down the windows, and snuck in our own snacks (I don't think you're supposed to do this, but no one really checked). Pro Tip: we arrived at 7:30 (movie started at 8:30, gates opened at 7) and it was already about half full, so get there early
  10. An article on it from last week: https://www.papercitymag.com/restaurants/el-burro-bull-new-restaurant-houston-henderson-kane-general-store/
  11. As previously mentioned, the owner has been doing pop ups every Saturday morning (more info on their instagram @oso.coffee). We stopped by there this past Saturday to check it out, and the owner mentioned that he was aiming to finish construction work by the end of this month and planning to having inspections done then, too. The inside is looking really nice, and he mentioned there was some plumbing work that needs to be done, tiling in the kitchen, and some woodwork. The owner was really nice, and the coffee was good too -- typical fancy coffee place prices and pastries from El B
