Daily Demolition Report: Living Improvements

2501 Riverside Dr., Riverside Terrace, Houston

Today’s edition of the Demo Report is truly a classic of the genre. Going or gone: The State Grille, a taqueria, a Darling house . . . but really, so much more. You can’t make this stuff up.

  • I can’t let the passing of the State Grille go uncommented-upon. I remember its previous incarnation fondly — it was The Black Angus, and the restaurant’s name was emblazoned in three-dimensional, hammered-on lettering across the side of the building. Every so often, some wag would steal the “g.” Truly, inside of my middle-aged female body beats the heart of a 13 year old boy. It would crack me up every time.

    The disgusted proprietors finally took to painting the “g” onto the side of the building in the appropriate place.

    Ahh, Houston landmarks.
