  1. That was it. My Mom used to work there when I was a kid. Knew Leonard Wells from there. Later opened his own men's store in the Galleria area (Fowler and Wells).
  2. Ha. Although that would be nice I'm sure the last thing developers are worried about is keeping your car dry.
  3. I agree with you about Austin although none of that has stopped other tech companies from locating there. If they build out in the suburbs of a city then I don't see how mass transit or traffic is relevant.
  4. Not sure about this. That would place it less than 5 minutes from their Bellaire store. Traffic around Meyerland plaza is already bad. This would just make it worse.
  5. Perhaps they will build on whats left of the old Westbury Square. That area could use a nice grocery store.
  6. Same problem here. I thought it was just me but I've tried four different browsers and still get the same error message.
  7. Wonder how many people will just walk away from their mortgages if it's more that lot value?
  8. Very few musicians can afford to live in Austin these days. Heck, very few people can afford to live in Austin these days.
  9. Bumping an old thread since HCAD raised the appraisal of my Houston house by around 30%. Tried the online appeal but they only knocked off a couple of thousand dollars. Anyone have any new suggestions on a property tax appeal company? Anyone try Jubally with sucess?
  10. Saw Quicksilver at the Coliseum Feb 23, 1970 and June 6, 1971. Saw Jethro Tull at the Village Catacombs, I believe in 1970.
  11. Followed his twitter account to this explanation: http://houston.culturemap.com/news/city-life/05-15-17-why-ken-hoffman-left-the-chron-for-culturemap-in-his-own-words/
  12. http://www.chron.com/life/article/Farewell-to-longtime-columnist-Ken-Hoffman-11146738.php That was kind of out of nowhere. No farewell column?
  13. Auntie Pasto's is supposedly in the works of building a new restaurant directly behind the existing one.
  14. Venue was great. Parking and traffic a nightmare.
  15. I don't think Bellaire residents would go for a mini-mall. They rejected that in the 80's where the Episcopal school sits. Residential would be nice although not sure anyone could afford to develop it. No matter what they do the city is going to loose big on taxes. Especially if HISD grabs it. The last thing they need is another non-taxable entity in a city that is already full of churches and schools.
  16. Me too. Already have tickets for two events.
  17. Not sure if i can handle the Galleria traffic. When exactly in 2017 is the one in the Village suppose to open?
  18. Nothing is going to completely eliminate mosquito's but I purchased one of those propane foggers last spring and it did seem to help keep them under control.
  19. The Texans will have to greatly improve if they want to play in this coming Super Bowl.
  20. I use Chrome also but Opera is still my favorite. Amazing it's still around. Works well on my phone also.
  21. Get Opera. Much much better web browser.
  22. No problems at all. I prefer it over giving out credit card information.
