  1. Moved to Houston in 2002 when I was 22 ... Montrose was definitely a different place ... was out to the bars / clubs / restaurants several times a week. Now that I'm 42 I just don't feel the need to "go to Montrose" as much anymore. I did it for so many years and have basically moved on. I still go out to the montrose bars with friends every once in a while, and we have a blast, just don't need to do it every week... other parts of the city, like Downtown, can be just as fun and sometimes more fun. I just don't need to "be around other gays" every time I go out.
  2. Dang parking lot! *shakes fist in the air* 🤬 ... still looking beautiful, though! 😍
  3. There's a dumpster now out front so the new owners must have started working on it.
  4. Hmmm ... odd. The World Cup isn't until 2026 and it will be held at NRG, not PNC.
  5. I'm still trying determine if it's a good tacky or bad tacky ... lol ... it's different. If it's a successful business that helps my neighborhood I'll like it.
  6. I live about a block from here ... same distance to the rail ... it's a VERY easy / quick walk to the rail station ... even during the summer.
  7. There's one Downtown on the corner outside of Biggio's across from the GRB.
  8. Stopped by yesterday... definitely a nice CVS... big. Agree... great addition to the neighborhood.
  9. Yea looking like this development is gonna be just a tad successful... and by that I mean very successful. I'm sure the Downtown Aquarium is happy with both this and the Bagby Street improvements.
  10. Late 1970s... 😲😲😲 ... can't image having to walk blocks to your car in the mid-summer heat and humidity with no trees / shade at all... nothing but baking pavement... ugh what a nightmare!
  11. Agree... there's something about the stone with this building (all of it) that bothers me... it just doesn't seem to go with the rest of the building. Maybe once it's done and all lit up with people living in it I'll feel different. Still a very beautiful building and such a great addition to this part of Downtown. 😁
  12. Club 2020 is no longer a thing... it went from a night club to a church... 🙄
  13. Now we just need someone to open up where Lucky's Pub was in EaDo ... such a great space and location ... hate seeing it empty.
  14. Agree... had Sunday brunch a few weeks ago with several friends at the newish Acme Oyster House in Montrose... food was great but service was so slow and we were shocked that on a Sunday when they were obviously busy that they were closing between 3pm and 5pm. Well after a quick talk with our server we found out why... it was a labor issue... they were short staffed and the cooks were very overworked. So obviously we understood.
  15. I walk across Disco Green several times a week during the early afternoon hours (usually between 1pm and 4pm) and there are always people there ... especially now that more and more people are vaccinated and back to pre-covid life. Of course on weekends it's much more crowded but even during weekdays there are people walking around and kids enjoying the playground and fountains.
  16. I was literally trying to figure that out, too! lol .... I concluded "Twenty 24"
  17. Sign is up at the former Eado's / Lucky's Lodge in EaDo.... hopefully that's a temporary sign since it seems like it cost less than $10 to make. 🙄
  18. I walked by today and it looks like they are maybe ... key word "maybe" ... working on some of the other spaces in the strip center. They had the door of 1 other former place open (this is the 2nd or 3rd time I noticed this... I walk by several times a week going to and from downtown) and they had workers going in and out ... not sure exactly what's going on just something I noticed.
  19. They are also building booths for sitting on the outside side patio.
  20. I live near here and they've been working on the old "Lucky's Lodge" now for weeks... not sure if it's gonna be a new bar or restaurant (or both) but something is definitely going there.
