"To say that Hill will be missed doesn’t begin to approximate it. With his passage, Houston’s own 'royal' in the fight for LGBTQ equality fades into history," writes Kim Hogstrom.

Congratulations and many thanks to all the candidates and their supporters...there is always next year! Cheers to Mayor Mondays at Avant Garden celebrating Montrose with 1/2 off libations. I trust that Montrosians will have one or a dozen for me! Mahalo from the former Mayor and his First Lady.

Please help our beloved Catbirds Lounge & Patio Bar bar manager to help recover from the crisis following vast Harvey damage!

Gastric dilation volvulus (commonly known as “bloat” or GDV) is a terrifying medical condition threatening mainly deep-chested dog breeds. Imagine your stomach “flipping,” or becoming so distended by gas that it essentially feels as though tied in a knot. Vomiting ensues, and death is a certainty...

How Montrose became gay

A wonderful person recommended I check out Professor Brian Reidel's work at Rice University and I appreciate the history he has painstakingly researched. Check it out.

In the 1980s, it had a significant LGBT population and was at the center for gay culture in Houston. Today, however, there's a sense this is no longer the case.

What an interesting idea. Why hasn't anybody thought of this before?

The Montrose Center

In case you had heard about this and wanted to go pay them a visit, it's worth considering the request of the The Montrose Center to please not allow them the exposure they want.

We are asking that people not come to the Center on the 16th between 10:30 am and noon unless you have business here. We do not want to give them any media attention or assist them in their mission to disrupt our services and guests. We have consulted with other Centers who have been protested and have been advised the best way to frustrate them is to not engage them. We have it covered and ask that there be no counter protest. We have made arrangements to protect our clients, staff and visitors and their privacy. Thanks everyone for respecting our plan.

What’s Arriving Now at the Sleepy Corner of Westheimer and Montrose | Swamplot

Although they already took over the Bobbitt Glass location at W. Gray and Montrose, First just a pizza place but now a full on Mattress Firm retail space) they apparently need even MORE space so they're pushing into the Montrose/Westheimer strip. How many mattresses do we need and, more importantly, what does this say about the changing demographics of our neighborhood? What do the marketers know and why do we even care?

The formerly bedding-starved heart of Montrose can now rest easy: Mattress Firm has arrived. The nation’s largest mattress retailer has snagged a new location in the former Blockbuster Video spot at 1002 Westheimer Rd. in the Westmont Shopping Cent
