What is concerning is the rate at which new restaurants and bars spring up, only to quickly disappear, leaving their discarded husks (for example Bernadine’s and Hunky Dory). The streets are not able to handle the added traffic and there is little room for on street parking. The businesses move into the neighborhood that already has laws in place, and then hires out of town companies to get them over turned. After the restaurants move on, who knows what will happen in the Heights.
Another concern about more alcohol sales is that every weekend brings a carnage of drunk driving deaths in Houston. What we really need is to have the legal limit for driving reduced to 0.02 or at least 0.05, as it is in most of Europe. However, our state representative is busy with misguided misandry, SB4260, “A Man’s Right to Know.” It must be the Russians that keep these charlatans in office.
Heights homeowners in for a shock
The draft of the Design Guidelines severely restricts what you can do with your property. We think you should have a vote in them. To that end, we have created an online petition. We will take your affirmation by signature about a wanting a vote, and any comments, to City Council.
You should have gotten to review the guidelines to determine if you wanted these restrictions BEFORE you were asked to sign up for historic district. Since you were not given that opportunity, we hope Council will allow you to decide now that the restrictions are going to have a big impact on what you can do with your property.
Here is a link to the petition:
Karbach Brewing Co. adds new summer beers, menu items, executive chef
Karbach is no longer a Houston Craft Brewery as it is owned by Budweiser. Support local such as Saint Arnold, Brash, Buffalo Bayou etc.
As long as Karbach continues to be brewed at its local brewery it IS a Houston Craft Beer. Its when you move the production to a larger mechanical brewery that it no longer becomes a craft beer. Hopefully Budweiser will keep it that way and the article appears to validate that. Keep it craft. Keep it Karbach.
