The notable lifestyle advantages of taking up residence at 2520 Robinhood, the condo building off Kirby just north of the Rice Village: convenient shopping nearby, no lawn maintenance, plus . . . it’s so easy to tweak those pesky customers at the tiny little mostly open-air bar right next door!
“They have been tormenting us, basically, for the last five years,” Hans’ Bier Haus owner Bill Cave tattles to the Houston Press‘s Craig Malisow. How?
throwing eggs and roofing tacks; using a laser-sighted gun scope to train a red dot on various customers, thus freaking them out; throwing beer bottles and cans . . .
Sure, it sounds like a little fun nighttime activity from condo balconies above such an easy target. But do the merry residents of 2520 Robinhood realize the people they’re toying with have been . . . drinking?! Cave tells Malisow he’s “decided to file a lawsuit against every resident, because even if a particular resident didn’t take an active part in the war, they all were complicit” in the off-bar games.
Cave reports the latest incident earlier this month, when the courtyard bar with the bocce court hosted a party headlined by the Ronnie Renfrow Big Band:
Cave says he invited the residents to that party.
“And how did they repay us? . . . I come to find out that days leading up to the party…they’d be soaking down my backyard with the water sprinkler so it would be waterlogged, so the effect would be even…greater when they turned the sprinkler on us right after the party started.”
