Incomplete de-Dowlingization, Incomplete Emancipation, in the Third Ward

4700 Emancipation Ave.

PERHAPS A LITTLE CONFUSION IS A GOOD THING --  
IT MAY MAKE FOLK WONDER WHAT IT'S ALL ABOUT 

Wrong Signal: Dowling Next - Not any more 

How many people even knew who Dowling was prior to the controversy and the campaign for street- rebranding? - It's been a long time for sure. 

The Holiday Clock Stopped Long Ago - Time for a reboot.

Good Bye Sullivan's


After 20 years, Sullivan's on Westheimer at Westcreek / River Oaks District is closing, reportedly being forced out by a steep hike in rent upon expiration of its current lease.
