Bilao's Department Store At 8719 Katy Rd.


Recommended Posts

     Bilao's Dept store and Western Skies Motel on Old Katy Rd between Blalock and Wirt.  Supplied the lettered jackets the football players wore.  Now strip centers and office parks when they put in I-10.


     The Dad's Club off Katy Rd / Blalock.  'Sock hops' every Friday night where us teenagers could work off our adolescent energy.  We all wore white socks and had to take off our shoes so as not to damage the hardwood flooring.  KILT Radio would provide the DJ's playing original rock and roll.  Now a swim club and athletic center.


     Monterey House Mexican Food?  Long gone.  Last gasp was a contaminated food lawsuit in Baytown because a worker didn't wash his hands.
