Thanks for posting. Just noticing that La Bodega at The Backyard shows as coming soon. It's actually been there about a year FYI.

West End #1 is closed, right? Makes West End #3 seem unlikely.

Does anyone know if Eskimo Hut is closed permanently? It's been closed for several weeks and their coolers are mostly empty.

I thought that was what was being built in Harvey by the mattress store. Am I wrong?

They were open a couple of weeks ago and had plenty of beer.

Republic Steakhouse new location is no longer a work in progress -- new location is up and running and looking good.

Maddie Joy Boutique has been open since the end of October. It's a great shop. As I understand it, the owners are associated with/same as the owners of Witt's End. Maddie Joy is a more affordable version of Witt's End and they skew toward fashion for women in their 30s and 40s. I highly recommend it.

Interesting. I was under the distinct impression it was a pet boutique.

A couple years ago I can remember KBTX or the Eagle reporting that Dunkin Donuts and Carl's Jr were coming and neither one has materialized.

Someone has franchise rights for Dunkin in BCS and has had several close calls on selecting a location. My understanding is that if the owner doesn't build within a certain time the franchise rights opencback up for the market.

Dunkin corporate is the holdup - not the franchisee. They have a model that they will approve - from what I hear - and franchisee can't find space that comes in on their approval - but not without franchisee trying. That may be just one side but what the Tom toms say.

Right, me too! I was a regular and knew the manager and staffhad no idea they were closing. Hoping it's just for the break.

Why does Gringos keep popping up? Did they recently file for a permit?

From what I remember, they did have a space--in front of the Embassy Suites, and they tore down the building where Lovan Animal Care was.

I remember them saying Carl's Jr. at the same time as Panera Bread was coming, and Panera Bread took about a year to get built (it was a foundation for months). From what I could tell though, Carl's Jr.'s Texas expansion has more or less bombed, with no stores opening in years and a number closing.

The original owner of West End Elixir (on the actual West End of Northgate) divested himself of that entity some time ago and is focused solely on the Downtown Elixir and 5 Knocks bars for now.

There still might be one of his bars coming in the future on the south end of town.

Does anyone have any more info on Nobilitea? They closed auddenly and without warning. It was one of my wife's favorite study spots given that it was too far from campus to be inundated by over-chatty students looking to "study."

Other than the poorly received GoFundMe that went nowhere?

The following business have applied for or been granted TABC licenses in the area:

MOD Super Fast Pizza (in the Jones Crossing development)
The Angry Elephant (for their second BCS location Boonville and Copperfield)
Art of War Sake Bar
Hush & Whisper (new distillery from the Astin Partners)

There's others, but mostly gas stations, renewals, etc...
