  1. That's it, thanks! Pleasantly surprised they're still open. Kinda amusing to see that old Astros mural is still up in the batting cage area.
  2. Sorry to bring up an old topic, but I've got a question that's been nagging me. Around 1994-1996 friends and family used to go to an amusement center in the area of Almeda Mall. All I remember is that it was a nondescript metal building with no company name located behind the Target/Marshall's shopping center nearby. It was an arcade with indoor batting cages. For the life of me I can't remember the name of the place (never knew it to begin with.) Does anyone remember this place?
  3. Thanks for that. I'm not familar with The Magnolia Hotel, where exactly is that?
  4. I don't know if it's really called that, as I found these photos on Flickr with that title whilst looking at Houston urbex photos. Anyone recognize this club? Know where it's at? Does it still exist? What's its story? I doubt that's the original carpet since the Astros only used that logo from 1995-1999, and behind the bar they have a mini-original Astrodome scoreboard.
  5. Was on a mini-haitus, actually. Glad to see this thread grew somewhat! And when did you attend?
  6. Thanks for that info, tiger. Apparently my searching didn't go as far as yours did. I also found out that I have a co-worker that actually worked there, so I'm going to pick their brain a bit about it.
  7. Okay, now that the location has been verified, when did it change over?
  8. I thought so, but wasn't 100% sure. When did it get changed over to IKEA? I can remember around 94-95-ish first becoming aware of IKEA entirely.
  9. This may not be as old as some of the other buildings/businesses, but I'm still curious. STØR Furnishings International Inc. was an American furniture chain based in City of Industry, CA, that opened in 1987. It sold European-style furniture and ready-to-assemble furnishings. IKEA filed a lawsuit against the company shortly after opening, claiming copyright infringement, and was settled in 1988 with STØR being forced to change the layout of their stores and advertising. STØR was acquired by IKEA in 1992. The Houston STØR location was a franchised location. When the brand was purchased by I
  10. Hey guys, long time reader, first time poster here. Been a big fan of these forums for quite some time now, and thought maybe this would be a good source for a question I've had for a while - Back when I was in high school (I went to Houston Sterling, by the way...not Baytown Sterling) we had to do a research paper on a corporation for one of our business classes. I decided to choose The Southland Corporation, owners of the 7-Eleven company, who changed their name in 1999. One thing that had always fascinated me was the fact that growing up, there were never any 7-Eleven's in the Houston area
