002HOUSTON MAGAZINE GETTING RID OF ITS DOWNTOWN ZIP For its seventeenth birthday, sleek-stuff-about-downtown glossy 002houston magazine is stripping away the Zip Code part of its name to indicate its (longstanding) willingness to venture into Discovery Green (010), East Downtown (003), Bellaire (401), Montrose (swinging both ways: 006 and 019), the Energy Corridor (079), The Heights (007, 008, and 009), Pearland (584), Sugar Land (478 and 479), The Woodlands (380, 381, and 389), or wherever a nearby polo match is to be found. Starting with the January issue, the free publication’s new name will be Local Houston Magazine. “Local will continue to provide relevant news targeting those who live and work downtown, but with increased coverage throughout Greater Houston,” reads a notice sent out yesterday from 002houston magazine’s Spring St. editorial offices (in 007), “with editors covering food, culture, art and style for Houstonians who make Houston one of the coolest cities in America.”
*sniff* no love for 025 or 030. It’s like NRG stadium and the Astrodome and TMC don’t exist.
“… or wherever a nearby polo match is to be found.” This snark made me smile. Thnx.
I thought Montrose was a trio of 006, 098, and 019?
No love for the 098 section of Montrose either. At least El Real still loves us on Mondays.
Eh, 06 or fuggitaboutit :)
