  1. yeah i wondered! thanks for the update @hindesky!
  2. interesting...next time i ride my bike by i will see if a notice is posted up yet
  3. yeah love the Hotel Granduca and with all that is popping up in Uptown Park it is becoming more and more popular! i will say that i truly love Hotel Saint Cecelia so i was hoping for something more along that vibe in design...but this is cool.
  4. Yes please πŸš΄β€β™€οΈ πŸƒβ€β™€οΈπŸ₯ͺβ˜•!!!
  5. i gotta say, i love Montrose STILL but man nothing will ever compare to Montrose back in the day...
  6. yeah that is awesome...i am kinda sad that it wont be 2 stories as that is one feature i really like about the montrose location
  7. sort of close (the old location but also very close to the new location..) it's where The Hallmark currently stands: https://thehallmark.org/
  8. good lord! πŸ’€
  9. got invited last night to go to Uchiko as part of their soft opening and wow was the food good...and since i am not the biggest sushi fan, i had to try their appetizers: Brussel Spouts (and omg just freaking incredible)...and the Karaage (incredible as well!)... the service was great, people were super nice, chris loved the sushi (as expected as he frequents Uchi) and he had a couple of cocktails he said were made perfectly. I recommend sitting at the full bar for quick service...or if not in a hurry, ask to sit at one of the handful of booths in the main dining area...those were awesome. anyway...super fun to be able to walk here last night and see the place buzzing! you CAN definitely walk in tonight or tomorrow and chance getting getting a table or a seat at the bar without an invite or reservation...they are closed sunday to take a 1 day break before the big grand opening. (IF you get in tonight or tomorrow they are doing a Soft Opening discount so our tab was about half...so we left a nice tip of course!)

    i think the main problem is the access to that lot and the way it is configured to be honest but yes i will say that more often than not the streets are packed with parked cars as the lot is full...especially thurs to sun.
  11. thanks for the update @mkultra25!
  12. anyone have updates on the rebuild/renovation? dangit i miss this place
  13. super cool place and actually loved the upper deck patio (although why in the heck didn't they put a small bar up there too!?) but yeah...wowsa on a weekend not only is parking a mess but plan on spending 15 min to 30 min trying to get through the streets/traffic just to try and find that parking. one night we actually just gave up and went to Kirby Ice House it was so crazy
  14. it's such a cool little space...i hope this sticks!
  15. SO...i have lived on McCue for approx 26 years...(minus a short 2 year stint on Post Oak Blvd)... anyway...i rented at Carriage Square 2320 Mccue for 14 years...(I only moved because the guy that purchased the building wanted to renovate it to what it is now) then rented at 2400 Mccue for 4 years then purchased a condo at 2503 Mccue (the ugly step sister on McCue and i hated it but it was a good deal and ended up meeting one of my now best friends there but a smart move when i made back 150 percent of my investment!) and now an owner of a condo at 2400 Mccue. i cannot believe that the gentleman that purchased and renovated 2306 and 2320 Mccue is now selling the properties...wowsa! I mean good for him as he is probably going to make a killing... but crazy to think that something like the above could now be my next door neighbor...little McCue is growing up i guess. I wonder when someone will try to buy out our measley 4 story building haha! edit to add...the main point is that i love my street and my part of town (i have worked a block away from McCue for about 25 years as well!)...it is so crazy how much my street and this area has changed in all this time...i love houston and frequent montrose and the heights but love Uptown Houston the most...so yeah i am happy to see all this growth!
  16. me and my buddy chris shall be there opening night! can't wait...and this is coming from someone that doesn't like sushi haha! πŸ€ͺ
  17. true that @Naviguessor! i don't eat sushi but one of my best friends does and he swears by this place...and when i have gone with him we sit at the bar and man the servers are all so nice and a few are hilarious. always a good time!
  18. there have been surveyors and a piece of equipment (drilling machine maybe i don't know machinery that well haha) in the field everyday...including yesterday when i went to the bank!
  19. actually the roads have gotten so bad (and the lanes really are pretty thin, especially there near montrose heading west on westheimer) that most of the 82s tend to ride the middle of the road lower westheimer between Taft and Shepherd! yikes...i hate that but yep, that's what many of them do.
  20. probably saw you there then because this was my "after concert go to" as well! haha
  21. wowsa informative post @hindesky ! had no idea about any of that! while in a way it's sad to see this end of Westheimer change more and more into the rest of Westheimer it is good to have it cleaned up and i guess this is how they have decided to go about it. Shawn is killing it...dang! which by the way i love tacos etc and have never been to Pistoleros...how is that place?
  22. well dang good for uchi then but that sucks as that was a cool little hangout spot!

    I understand that...but dang this place seems to alwayyyyyyyyyyyyyyys be busy and the cars pulling in and out often seem to wreck havoc in regards to traffic on montrose...so the expansion and more parking would be warranted for sure!
