  1. This place was on University Blvd. back in the mid 80s when I worked in the Medical Center. Believe it was close to Morningside - anyone remember the name of this place?
  2. Yes, it was a Globe and I believe Fed Mart before that, but could be mistaken.
  3. Sorry to hear that. Back in the day, had lots of great 'retail therapy' at Sharpstown.
  4. How about Sharpstown Mall, still around or bit the dust? I've heard it's very dangerous there. Friend of mine in Houston refuses to shop there.
  5. Why, thank you TJones! I haven't been to Houston in many years and am sorry to hear Westwood is no longer. How long has it been gone?
  6. I really had forgottten, but I'm pretty sure there were two clubs. The one you mentioned I believe was Van's Ballroom and had jazz, etc. If memory serves, it was indeed on one of the side streets not TOO far from the other, Van's Stampede Ballroom but am probably all wrong about this. You're amazing tmariar - thank you!
  7. Not real sure readam, but that address sounds about right. Seems like there were apartments, but not sure. No idea about whether or not it was a grocery store before. Guess I'm not much help, sorry. I do remember a *very* small bar/tavern across the street, if that's any help. Can't remember the name though, ugh .. tough getting old!
  8. Yes, they had a great C&W band. We used to go there in the 70s.
  9. I believe this used to be on Richmond, or was it West Alabama? Great place to be on Tuesdays and Thursdays for beer bust night! Whatever happened to this place, anyone know?
  10. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=GmwqpHsMExg Too cute - cracks me up
  11. I agree - what a treasure your aunt was!
  12. Thanks for the info - rarely made it to San Leon, but do remember the spillway on the highway (518?) from Bacliff to San Leon. Wasn't there a little park there with tables and swings for the kids? Also, come to think of it, wasn't there a club in San Leon called Castaways or was that in Kemah?
  13. Thanks plumber - I would have sworn Hillman's moved to San Leon. I'd love to get back to that area again - maybe someday! Have a nice weekend.
  14. Bacliff used to be called Clifton by the Sea a very long time ago, and I'm *thinking* that's the name of the restaurant there. It's right on the water, right? Back in the days I used to go there, that particular place was just another beer joint, owned by a very nice older couple. Can't remember now what it was called, but it was next door to a liquor store and across the street from a pretty brick home, right on the water. There used to be a nice public peer there, but I'm pretty sure that's gone now.(?) No progress at all plumber?
  15. Y'all are sure making me homesick. Alpha, I grew up the next street over from you on Swarthmore. Mom used to shop at JMH (Milton) and Weingartens as well. I remember her telling me about the little park where JMH used to be, but have never seen it. Need to make it back down there someday. Great memories - thank you.
  16. I spent a lot of time in my younger years in Bacliff and was wondering how it is today. I remember it as having only churches and beer joints .. maybe a couple of grocery stores. It's been about 12 years since I've visited, but any major changes in that area?
  17. Yes! The French bread was one of the main reason for our visits there. For years, it was a tradition for my mom, sometimes my sister, aunt and grandmother and I to visit Galveston. This was long before The Strand ever came about. Usually, we would poke around the stores and such downtown, have lunch at Fishermans Wharf (fantastic seafood poboys) and always a trip to G&G Bakery to buy up a bunch of their wonderful French Bread to bring home. Those were the days!
  18. I believe it was located at the corner of Avenue L and 13th? in Galveston. Years ago, I believe it closed down but did eventually reopen. The last time I was in Galveston it had closed again. Anyone remember this wonderful old bakery?
  19. lol yes, it was a restaurant
  20. It's been years since I've had a Keller burger, but have to agree with you. The BEST burgers and the COLDEST beer around!
  21. Thank you! I've been trying for a very long time to think of Udder Delight's name and here it is. Scrumptious ice cream, but never had anything as 'exotic' as avocado - yikes
