  1. agreed...Common Bond's continuous lines are proof there is a need for THIS type of bakery/cafe in the area and The Salty sounds like it will definitely give them a run for their money...btw for those that don't know, Common Bonds fresh baked goods are 1/2 price every single night the last half hour of opening! I go there often for this reason (unfortunately haha 🤪)

    anyway...to me there is always room for more bakeries...and donuts 😋

  2. somewhere on here (i think the Post Oak Blvd redevelopment thread) there was a link to an article i believe that stated they were being taken down during the Post Oak Blvd construction but not to worry...that they were being cleaned and shined like brand new and would be back up.) My thought is that once Aspire has the sidewalk done they will maybe then put them all up at once (some are still up btw).

    anyway i miss and love them too! they are like Uptown UFOs! 

    here is a related article: 


    but can't seem to find the one about polishing them and putting them back up...i remember it even said "not to worry they will be back"

  3. Since these festivals are so common and usually go off without a hitch, I really feel like for the most part it is no ones fault except those that promoted the surge (whoever that may be...) and those that did so. I think there was probably no way that anyone, security or otherwise, could have prevented this tragedy and it is so sad and horrible for sure. I tend to think that these crowded festivals can be problematic and wonder if there is going to be a time where they will have assigned sections or barriers or similar as that is the only way i can think of that these can continue without things like this happening... anyone else have thoughts or ideas how we can still have these festivals safely? I definitely enjoy ACL, Freaky Deaky, etc so hope these can continue...

    One note...i have only experienced something like this on a lesser level...i used to regularly go to Mardi Gras in New Orleans and have been trapped a few times in the crowd surge on Burbon Street...its like a giant wave and you have absolutely no control over which way you are forced to lean or fall etc... so i know how scary that can be and can only image what these concert goers experienced....scary stuff for sure. 

  4. So after being out of town for a week, last night i drove by the future site of Postino and DANG their awesome signage and new facade is up and the inside is completely finished and furnished and looks ready to open any time now! They have Now Hiring still on the outer fencing and bet the fencing is down within the week or so! This place looks super cool and am a fan of the Heights location (and Montrose a close second) but this looks to top both locations! So excited to have this in my area... 

    (and yes they are leaving the stone animals out front which is awesome haha!)

    ps...rumor has it the grand opening will be around Dec 6th with a possible soft opening that weekend prior Dec 3rd or so...
