Ready to see some fun pix from around town? Here’s the guardhouse for the loading dock at the Igloo plant in Katy, as captured a while back by blogger Donna B.
A few more:
A couple excerpts from a larger set of photos by Flickr user meltedplastic, showing a few finds at the abandoned Heights Armature Works at 107 Yale, near I-10 and White Oak Bayou. A place to relax and enjoy the scene:
And a colorful collection of drums on site, a familiar sight to many EPA workers. Wonder what’s inside!
Last, the brand-new storefront of Vinoteca Poscol at 1609 Westheimer near Mandell, in the strip-center space formerly occupied by CafÃ© Montrose.
Katharine Shilcutt Gleave, who snapped this shot for Eating Our Words, explains:
Marco Wiles, local celebrity chef and owner of the popular Da Marco and Dolce Vita, is behind this latest venture and the possible creation of a trifecta of amazing Italian restaurants within spitting distance of each other (Da Marco is across the street and Dolce Vita is a few blocks up at Whitney). Word is that Vinoteca Poscol will be a wine and coffee bar cum Italian market, although its uncertain whether they’ll be curing their own meat (hence the salumeria on the awning) or sourcing it.
Vinoteca Poscol is expected to open this March.
