  1. Don't know if this is new or just new to me, but Google Books now has full-issue copies of Texas Monthly from 1973 to 1992. Very cool to see articles like the April 1973 (p.56) article on Montrose with photos, as well as the old advertisements. You can search all the issues using a search function on the left-hand side of the screen when you have any individual issue open.
  2. Looks like there were two pickle plants in this area - the Price-Booker plant and the Adam Bros. plant - though the Price-Booker plant looks like it was bigger. Saw elsewhere that there was a fire at a Price-Booker facility at the 2400 block of what is now Center Street in December 1919 - maybe the company rebuilt in the Heights? Anne Sloan's photo book on the Heights has a picture of a Price-Booker advertisement listing some of their products. Note the "Mission" trade name. I saw here that the Texas Price-Booker company got into a fight with the California Del Monte people over that trade
  3. As Sevfiv recently posted, pdf's of some of the HMRC's city directories are now available on the Houston Public Library's website. (They are Houston city directories, and so don't have pre-annexation Heights information, but do have post-annexation Heights information.) If you've got a valid library card number to enter, you can also access old Sanborn maps for Houston that include Heights-area locations on the library's website. (For example, if you go to the "1924-1950" maps, and then select "vol. 6-8, 1925", and click on key sheet "0c", you'll see 1925 map sheet numbers covering Heights-a
  4. Happy birthday! Big Top is great. The newish full backyard set-up makes it even better. I can't make it this time, but I know y'all will have lots of fun!
  5. Saw an update on this location this morning: http://houston.bizjournals.com/houston/stories/2010/04/05/daily44.html
  6. Sure thing. I don't know anything about independent pharmacies, and for all I know it could be a great one. But they need a good proofreader for that website.
  7. I assume it's this place: Health Fit Pharmacy

  10. I don't see any building permit suggesting this is happening, at least not at a Heights Blvd. address. Even checking by zip code, I didn't see anything. I know the poster was just asking, but I'd have to hear more to give the rumor any credence.
  11. I got some additional independent confirmation since I last posted. (Though of course this kind of thing is never 100% until the doors are open.) Yeah, I'm pretty pleased, too. Unless people were hoping the place wouldn't reopen as a bar, I think this is about as good an outcome as possible for a number of reasons. And I think they will do really well there.

  13. I forgot to check the permits - thanks!
  14. I don't have any information other than this: Roeders Pub was granted a liquor license in February for the White Oak location just east of Studewood that used to be the Heights Sports and Social Lounge. Does anyone know anything else? I've been to Roeders Pub in Montrose a handful of times over the years. It always seemed like a nice neighborhood place, with friendly people behind the bar.
