  1. I've searched some, but could not find anything on this, but as I pass by it on my way in from Austin, I have to ask, 'Why is there an air traffic control tower on top on the new Memorial Hermann Hospital at Town & Country?' At least that's what it looks like. Anyone know the story on the top of this hospital?
  2. This is certainly good news as for a long time, this stuff was unaccounted for: http://bill37mccurdy.wordpress.com/2010/03/31/the-houston-sports-museum-is-back/
  3. We (Saint Arnold Brewing) are nearing completion of building our new brewery in this building that apparently dates back to the 20's. Does anyone have any early photos of this building? Here's a link to what we're doing: http://www.saintarnold.com/brewery/new_brewery.html
  4. I remember a story that he bought a French Villa, and had it disassembled and moved to River Oaks-anyone know if there's any truth to that? He was one of the wealthier guys in the country back in the day.
  5. I also have one of these. I believe there were many incarnations of H & H (one of which was Stevens & Pruitt), but I think the ones on that album were the originals. There is also available the two Beatles shows at the Sam Houston Coliseum, hosted by KILT's, The Weird Beard.
  6. I was also there-I was actually close enough to see him playing. I got turned on to 'Oxygene', which is still a pretty good album. I have the LP and VHS of the show(not complete, but the one they were selling). You guys might also remember that the Fire Dept. nearly canceled the show at the last minute due to some safety issues, and people in the areas that were supposed to be cleared out, but suddenly JMJ and crew could not understand English, and started the show anyway. JMJ also left town owing a bunch of $$ to lots of folks, one was HLP, where I worked at the time. It was a great event though!!!
  7. Here's a few more that I remember going to as a kid: John's BBQ-just off Houston Ave. -lots of politicos used to go here for lunch(dad was one of them of course!) Majorca's-a Mediterranean restaurant in Clear Lake-I believe it was on the (what is now) the South Shore Harbor side. Chesterfield-was under the First City bank Building-Leo Kalinsakis owned it-first time I ever had lamb shank. Bayou Inn-on Heights, just south of I-10-fried quail on Tuesdays. Oggerro's -family owned Italian on Bellfort near Mykawa. The Warwick-back in the day, best Mother's Day/Easter buffet Joe Lee's-near Jimmy Walker's in Kemah. Had excellent turtle soup. Bars: Joe Star's Omni-in Montrose-lots of punk. Damians/Carnaby's-owned by the same folks. Both were houses that had music/beer. One was behind the River oaks theater, and one was in the Montrose. Mainly jazz, but I saw Eric Johnson there when he was about 17 years old. Corky's-still miss Jimmy Don Smith & The Cold Cuts! Rockers-I think it was on Gessner. Saw the Talking Heads there. Texas Opry House-legendary live music bar. Saw Devo, T. Heads, Johnny Winter, Rory Gallagher, and many more. The Nesadel Club-Pasadena-owned by S. Cryer & Micky Gilly back then-before the 'feud' FM
  8. "We should have had some beer brewery's in the mix somewhere? " Saint Arnold has been around since 1994-we turn 14 June 7th, and, for a microbrewery, that's a lifetime! FM
  9. Dinner Theaters-I remember The Dean Goss Dinner Theater(and all the drama surrounding his back-to-back wives that were murdered in his house), and The Windmill Dinner Theater. Any more?
  10. If anyone has been around Houston for the last 25 years or so, and you are a blues fan, you probably knew Rory Miggins, former owner of The Local Charm on Telephone Rd. He passed away yesterday of cancer at the age of 50, and his father Larry, played for the Houston Buffs-bopth St. Thomas grads as well: http://blogs.houstonpress.com/rocks/2007/1...ory_miggins.php
  11. I could not decide where to post this one, so this forum won, but in today's NYT, there was this story on the tunnel system in Houston: http://www.nytimes.com/2007/08/21/us/21tun...amp;oref=slogin
  12. I hope I'm not out of line by posting this, but I figured that if dad's old friend Mayor Cutrer had a topic, dad certainly deserved one, and I'd love to hear comments from anyone that knew him. If the topic get's bumped, so be it. http://www.chron.com/disp/story.mpl/deaths/5027809.html
  13. I think that is the 'Witch's Hat' house that was off Fannin (I think) near what is now close to Mid Town. FM
  14. Yes, it was their last venture together, as they divorced shortly thereafter (or maybe even during Blues Burgers existence). I knew them both well, from their Washington Ave. bars. If memory serves, Pete was at Chelsea 804 prior to that. After Blues Burgers, Pete went to DFW to work for The Ginger Man, then to the Flying Saucer, and the last time I saw him before he died, he was working (albeit on sick leave with leukemia in remission) at Lone Star Park in Grand Prarie.
