Some call it the Eighth Wonder of the World. Others refer to it as the albatross no one can figure out. Whatever it is, the Astrodome has a special place in Houston’s history. Ahead of what could be a potentially historic day in Harris County’s Commissioners Court, Erin and Nancy get the backstory on the latest proposal for the Astrodome from the Chronicle’s (County/dome) reporter Mihir Zaveri.
Erin and Nancy give a shout out to the GBV -- or Glenbrook Valley -- in the latest episode of Looped In. It has been called the neighborhood “where Don Draper would live if he landed a big oil account.” While, this neighborhood in southeast Houston near Hobby Airport is somewhat overlooked, it has been growing in popularity as Inner Loop neighborhoods slip out of range for a lot of buyers. Realtor and GBV resident Robert Searcy guest stars and helps give details about this swanky historic ‘hood: the swingin’ parties, built-in martini bars and pink-tiled counters and, most importantly, the affordable deals.
Nancy and Erin talk about a few different upcoming and recent stories they have worked on for the Chronicle. They explore some of the quirks of land use in the Texas Medical Center and revisit one of their favorite topics: millennials. The land ladies also discuss one of their not-so-secret reality TV obsessions and their hope to bring on a famous guest.
In this episode of Looped In, Erin and Nancy talk about the latest, greatest and most controversial music venue in town: The White Oak Music Hall. To help them out with analyzing the saga and Houston's entertainment scene, they welcome chron.com reporter and man about town Craig Hlavaty as a guest.
