  1. you know for the longest time i have been talking to the people over at Common Bond and told them they should take over the old Kona Grill location that way they could service the mall but also have a cool walk up there for those walking by or taking the bus etc... i thought it was a smart idea but they kept telling me they were looking at other uptown locations...

    anyway, i think the old Kona Grill is a perfect spot for something like CB or similar...hopefully that space gets filled soon as it's an eyesore seeing that space and the outdoor patio empty.

  2. I had posted this on the BLVD Project thread a couple of weeks ago but will post it here too!

    Hi all! I have been begging for a www.houstonbcycle.com location in Uptown for awhile now and of course just on or off Post Oak Blvd was the desired location...and lo and behold they have installed one now at 1500 Post Oak Blvd in front of the BHP/Woodside Tower building! Last night they had both regular bikes and e-bikes at the location. Just thought i would let everyone know!

  3. again, when a post comes off as arrogant and condescending the whole point is lost. hopefully those that do this try to keep that in mind when posting.  🙂

    Man I really wish rich people had better taste.

    HAHA...

    the funny part is when looking at the fireplace photo i was like dang they definitely have a spider problem...but then i realized that is marble and not cobwebs 🕷️🕸️ 🤪

    and the furniture isn't the best in that photo...and apparently bored rich people just sit in chairs that face each other and have staring contests all day...and a little ugly ottoman thingy for their cat 🐈‍⬛ ...of course

  8. so does anyone know, will there be some sort of renovation to the facade of the T Mobile store to make this all blend together? In the photo above you see the buildings are connected so i am hoping this will be the case...

    PLEASE...at least that!!! 😭😩

  9. So my best friend released a new single yesterday and he makes a fun mention of Numbers without saying the name:

    "You lived next to the club down off Montrose Street
    We could listen to The Pixies from your bedroom suite..."

    now he says on/off Montrose Street but obviously it was harder to say Westheimer in the song haha...plus it's an ode to Montrose in general which was our hangout area back in the late 90's and beyond. Oh and yep, his band Blue October used to play at Numbers as well! (He graduated from the Houston High School Of Performing and Visual Arts btw)

    anyway...love the new song "Where did you go I'm less of a mess these days" (love that title haha).

    Check it out on all streaming platforms and YouTube :)

  10. in major developments, the Burger King in the food court opened this week 🤪... haha

    from what i understand, Sugar Factory Express will be opening in late October/early November...we shall see! 

    "National dessert chain Sugar Factory will launch its quick-service “express” outpost at 5015 Westheimer Road in the Galleria area early this fall. Marking its second location in Texas, the celebrity-endorsed restaurant will offer its combo of “sweets, treats, and eats,” including smoking goblets and colorful, over-the-top dessert concoctions."
