  1. Did anyone go on the tour today? What houses did you like and why? How would you rank the houses, top to bottom? Dream
  2. I want to go look at samples of existing white terrazzo floors. Can you think of locations around Houston with great examples of perfect terrazzo floors? Like the Exxon building in downtown Houston. I'm considering putting these into my new house. Thanks, Dream
  3. it looked like they put a basement in the building, plus no windows, it looks like a weird big box. good location though. what about the boat store across the street? doesn't fit the hood at all. dream
  4. I"m really happy to see this coming back from the dead. I don't think the loss of retail space is that big of a deal, small and large retailers come and go very often in the village. It's a tough retail market with the limited parking. I really hope they put some serious thought and planning into the public spaces as that can really be a draw for the walking public. dream
  5. I went here last week for lunch. Jamie's Bistro looks great and the food is awesome! Go today! Dream
  6. it seemed like the thread was turning into the dog lovers versus the kid lovers and no middle ground. the city has health regulations that don't allow dogs/pets inside a restaurant. i don't care if someone sits out front with a nice dog and eats their meal. will i give the dog water? yes. will i give the dog a treat? yes what if it's a big huge pit bull with tatoos and scares every kid that walks by it? i'm not sure and understand the parents who are concerned. bike rack: yes tables and booths: yes, both counter or full service: counter byob: yes grassy play area: yes coke or pepsi: coke thanks for all the feedback, i got a lot of emails from the mama mafia and the heights kids club blog. the info was great, we are looking forward to opening this summer and meeting everyone in the area. dream
  7. It seems like our customers who walk to our restaurants now with their dogs always sit on the last patio table away from the door. We basically, "don't ask don't tell" and this has worked. We were thinking of having a little can of dog bones and access to water for these customers by the last outdoor table. Dogs are not allowed in the dining room or allowed to go thur the dining room to get to the back yard per coh health code regulation. That's were we are on this issue so everyone can chill. dream
  8. We are making design decisions now in the planning process for this restaurant opening. We have some choices in how we are going to set this restaurant up and how the customer will experince JNH. I'd like some feedback. Look for us to open this summer in June. Thanks, Dream Booths or tables and chairs? Counter service or full service? Should we close at 10pm or 9pm? What time should we open on Sunday noon or 11am? How many high chairs will I need 4, 6, or 8? Will the neighborhood walk or ride their bike? How many bikes should the bike rack hold? Patio out front under the awning or in the back with a big grassy play area? Coke or pepsi? Access to water for dogs outside and free dog bones? Y or N
  9. This is a great thread. I have not been to Pie in the Sky yet but will stop by in the next few days. Every new place has issues with staff, training and working the kinks out. It's really great to see how passionate the Heights residents are about supporting and recommending a new restaurant in their hood. It sounds like if you're going to open a restaurant in this area you had better be ready to go from day one because the people are coming to eat. I'd like the residents of the Heights to give me some feedback (posteres in this thread) on some questions I have about our restaurant design and customer experience. I will be posting these questions in the Heights section, in the Jenni's Noodle House thread. thanks, dream
  10. in the back of "atomic ranch" magazine they have a few companies that sell sculptures like the one you want. you can but the magazine at issues on shepherd. dream
  11. niche, i really appreciate how you were an "open book" during this whole process of losing your job and going on the job hunt. reading thru the posts from the start and seeing how you dealt with this, planned your next step, and marketed yourself has been a real eye opener. this downturn, esp commercial real estate, has been brutal. the way you have been turned down at every corner must be very frustrating. thank you and i wish you the best of luck. fyi: my 2 cents: you are a smart guy, you should start your own business, hard work and a little luck is all it takes. what's the worst that can happen, it doesn't work, so what, at least you tried. dream
  12. sounds like this is what you are looking for, great neigborhood, very close to action in midtown, montrose, and close to work. i would make sure you had an assigned parking spot in a gated secure area. there is some crime around here and cars get broken into. dream
  13. it's all true. lease is signed, architect is working on the plans. we will be located at the southeast corner of 20th and oxford street. look for an april opening. dream
  14. these guys have every right to build this project as it was initialy designed. i live in this neighborhood and i've been sitting on the sideline watching this unfold. this piece of land is not restricted, they have rights as property owners to get the highest and best use out of this piece of property. they were smart enough to buy a great property in a prime location. there is demand for what they are going to build and they recieved a permit to build this as it was originaly designed, submitted, and permitted. the mayor and city counsel had better realize they stepped beyond their authority and have interfered with these developers basic rights. they have hindered their ability to bring a viable development beyond the planning stages, the city has wasted buckhead's time and money. i wish we had zoning in place so we could regulate types of development inside the loop. but we don't have zoning in htown so anything goes. i want smart developement, head in parking, bigger/wider sidewalks, retail bundled with commercial, more paking garages and less parking lots, more green space, some side streets could be closed for pocket parks and community gathering areas. dream
  15. so what is the new owner, dillick, plans for this property. is he going to demolish the apartments and build something awesome. i just worry that they will not do anything until the economy recovers. i hope the buildings don't just sit vacant. this is a great location for some type of mixed use retail, mid rise, multi-family project. has dillick ever done anything like this before. can he self finance? dream
  16. Jenni's Noodle House is opening a new restaurant at the corner of Post Oak and Westheimer. We are looking for 3 amazing individuals to work at the counter to take orders, meet great people, and fill up their tip jar. Previous restaurant wait staff experience is a plus but not a must. Applicants must be willing to work full time lunch, dinners, and weekends. Qualities we look for in co-workers are fun individuals, non smoker, Asian food lover, dynamic personality, funny, open minded, and really just people that we want to be around every day. If you are looking for a job or a better job than you have right now and you think Jenni's Noodle House is right for you then we would like for you to send us a r
  17. i drove by today. it's a small box with a flat roof, very hard to tell what's going on behind all of the plants in the front yard. it is a mcm design, with contemporary lines, it also looks to have a big box on the roof, could be a skylight? very busy street in a bad neighborhood but for 65k you can get a cool house and fix it up with a kick butt alarm system. could be a good deal for an mcm enthusiast on a budget. dream
  18. anyone have any news about who the new retail tenants are going to be in this development? what is the status of the development is the office still being built? the whole foods? is there a residential component moving forward? what about the hotel? i know the economy is tought right now but this is one of the top 5 locations in houston? anyone? dream
  19. i've read a few places that lucky strike is out of money and will not be opening up in the pavillions at all. what do you guys think of this? is the pavillions doomed? dream
  20. thanks for all the advice guys. i think i've got it figured out with the help of my brother in law. we are ripping the cd's into the computer and then loading them to itunes and then to ipod, like geoff said. dream
  21. i need a few ipods loaded with music, i have about 500 cd's i would like put on an ipod and i'm looking for a company or dj who could take my music and their music collection and create different playlists on my ipod. i don't have time to do this and was looking for a service like this. anyone heard of something like this and how much it would cost? Dream
  22. sold the smart car on ebay a few days ago. thanks for the feedback. dream
