Houston Is Inspired…
Can I tell you how happy it makes me to live in a town, that believes in murals?
Be still my heart…with a photography/graphic designer background…any type of art has me palpitating!
Someday, I hope to take all the murals in Houston and make art prints out of them, to use in our home.
The historic district is full of beautiful art…you are surrounded by it, with every turn.
Metal artwork…showing the skyline of Houston.
After all this sightseeing, Jane and Tarzan had an APPETITE.
Much to my delight, we found the Spaghetti Warehouse in the historic district!
This town isn’t known for a lot of Italian eateries. You know…we are south of the border…smile.
So, when you find one…you pull the car over real quick!
As you walk in…you see the restaurant filled with nostalgia everywhere!
Our waiter told us, this started out to as The Old Pacific Railroad Warehouse.
You can actually see the original brick on the interior walls.
We were told that their iconic trolley is part of the Warehouse lore as many of our historic warehouse buildings had trolleys that went back and forth in front of the buildings during the late 1800s and early 1900s.
There also is talk of this place being haunted…oh, good grief!
Manager Sandra McMasters, who has worked at the restaurant for 15 years, tells it like this: back in the day, the warehouse was home to a pharmacy. The pharmacists who worked there accidentally fell down the elevator shaft one day and died. Oddly enough, it’s not the pharmacist who haunts the building but his heartbroken wife, who died exactly a year later. “Of a broken heart.”
I did some research on this, when we got back home and sure enough reports abound!
Whether, there really are ghosts…one can never know. But, this ONE thing I do know…
Our 15 layer lasagna was heavenly my friends and we will be back.
Have a fantastic week!
