    If I'm being honest I called and they seemed confused but they said they weren't moving. That wouldn't make any sense lol

    Haha exactly and they DID realize how dumb their original post was!!! They posted this just now on their story after they posted the new post:

  3. regarding HOB, my best friend has played the main stage so many times that i just have good memories of both the venue and the restaurant where we got to eat free when they had a show haha! and honestly the gospel brunch was fun in my opinion...but anyway...

    yeah even Guadalajara was closed! doh! i always default to tex mex when able 🤪so i would have gone there for sure but nope, they are closed on sunday's as well!

    but love Phoenicia since it opened to this day but they close at 6pm on sundays so we even were a little too late for that darnit! 

    anyway...Greenstreet get your act together! haha

  4. well dang the pandemic destroyed this development in my opinion... (despite it already being a failure to some standards)

    went to see the amazing band Forester last night at HOB Peacock Room and most restaurants were shuttered or closed including House Of Blues main restaurant as apparently they are no longer open on Sundays (which their gospel brunch used to be a popular staple...)

    I had a hard time trying to find a close by place to eat around 5pm so i went to the former Lucky Strike bowling alley that was "luxury" bowling complete with dress code etc...and now it is called 818 Bowling and man oh man...let's just say it's devolved... 45 min wait for subpar fried food no less (yes i ate horribly but to be honest nothing else appealed to me much) and the staff was just hanging out and eating openly at the bar as well...then it just looked a little run down and dang they play their music waaaaaayyyyyyyyyyyy too loud to enjoy any conversation in the bar/restaurant. BUT they did brag about most everything on their menu is 10 to 15 dollars and that bowling is only 10 dollars per hour...so hey if you are looking for the Dollar Store version of Pinstripes then this is your place! ;) 

    but again, sad to see that this development has never really taken off or lands the right mix of businesses...

  5. Regine's Mediterranean Restaurant that is taking over the old Tasting Room is now completely hollowed out...beginning late april, early may they will begin the build out. 

    and in more Rocambolesc news, one of my best friends works as a bartender at Mad and says they serve their gelato there and it's amazing so he has me even more excited about this place! 

  6. It was super fun!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! but omg my friend got suuuUuUUuuUUuuUuuper drunk on all the free samples of liquor...let's put it this way, he doesn't remember leaving while screaming to the Amazon driver leaving Post that he loves Amazon and then trying to do parkour (very poorly) until we got to my jeep...

    thankfully i got it all on video 🤪haha!

    so fun though to see this place buzzing and alive...dang it's such a cool place and wish they would just do these markets in the parking lot on the regular!

  7. hi! posted this on the BLVD thread but will post here as well!

    has anyone seen the new pedestrian touch screen that was installed at Westheimer and Post Oak Blvd on the north east corner (in front of Embassy Plaza (the old Ethan Allen building) 5002 Westheimer Rd 

    They look much like the large touchscreens in the Houston Galleria to find stores and more...pretty cool! Are there more that i didn't notice yet?

    OH and in regards to the giant circle rings that have been missing since road construction i was told today by the Uptown Houston offices that they are having to completely re-engineer them since the roads widened! So they have been rebuilding them and hope to have them up sometime this year but they WILL be back! I miss my UFOs!!!!!!!
