  1. Ruggeiro's (sp?), they had great Sicilian pizza.
  2. Bounded by South Main, Willowbend, and Stella Link. It went almost to O'Meara on the north. It was called South Main Golf Club. By the time I got to Houston in 1968 it was a nine hole course, but each hole had two distinct tee boxes so you could play 18 holes that were different. It lasted, in a shrinking footprint, into some time in the 90s or early 00s.
  3. Luke's and Annie's were the same thing. IIRC there were four locations. The story I heard was that Luke and Annie (don't know the last name) got divorced. She got one site. It's the only one left.
  4. On a related note, just north of Hillcroft and Main, but still south of W Airport, there uses to be a dive-through milk store called Mr Fresh. I worked there as a fifteen year-old back in the mid-70s. I would even have to close up, lock up, and put the receipts in the safe alone after 10 pm. I can't imagine that happening today.
  5. No. Meyer Speedway and Butler Stadium were next door to each other. Meyer Speedway was the where the empty land now is between Butler and Hillcroft. I grew up in South Westbury, between Chimney Rock and Hillcroft. I could listen to track meets with my window open back then. If you look closely at Google Earth you can see the outline of the old oval. The north edge is about even with the baseball field at Butler.
  6. If they could take down just the upper east it would be awesome. The front of the upper west is already a great place to watch football. Without the east the view of the campus and med center would be awesome. Alas, I don't think it's possible to take it off easily.

  8. Tarp is off the north endzone in preparation. https://twitter.com/Chronicle_Owls/status/563834154865811457/photo/1
  9. The previous plan was to tear out and renovate the south endzone facilities. The plan that is moving forward is to do the building on the north, so it opens on both the field and the practice facility. I don't think there was ever a plan to include a field house/gymnasium. Tudor Fieldhouse had a $23mm makeover in 2007.
