Which Houston neighborhoods were designed to look like English cemeteries? Why does U.S. 59 outside the 610 Loop veer off at a 90 degree angle towards Sugar Land? Houston housing expert Scott Davis answers these questions and others as he shares his research on Houston’s development history with Nancy and Erin.
In typical millennial fashion, Looped In co-host Erin has picked up and moved. She put Houston in her rear-view mirror last week when she took a three-day road trip to her new home in the Washington D.C. area. In this episode of Looped In, Nancy gets Erin to share tales of her cross-country road trip, including the bars, the Walmarts and the road-side casinos she saw along the way. Oh, and “the leaves!”
Nancy and Erin hear from H-E-B's Scott McClelland, who is hoping Heights residents vote 'yes' Tuesday on the ballot measure that would allow off-premise beer and wine sales in what is now the dry part of the neighborhood. He has a lot riding on the vote.
On Nov. 8, residents in a corner of the Heights will vote on a measure that, if approved, would allow stores to sell beer and wine for the first time in more than 100 years. Heights resident and real estate broker Bill Baldwin loves his Cabernet, but wants the neighborhood to stay dry. Just days before the election, Baldwin joins Nancy and Erin to explain his position and why he’s going up against a beloved grocery chain to oppose the measure.
