Today In The Paper

There is an interesting feature in today's Brownsville Herald about how historic sites in downtown Brownsville are being converted into small business locales. It's not available online (I hope sometime in the future the Herald will expand their website to include more of their daily features), but I encourage you to try and pick up a copy and if you are not in the RGV, then at the library. I hope more people will begin to invest in downtown Brownsville as a prime location for business and living. I love downtown Brownsville, and it just may be because I was raised and bred there and still live very close to it.

Talking about historic sites, in downtown Brownsville....demolition on our family's restaurant has begun. I got to see it today and it was a pretty sad sight to see. It's like pieces of a whole life being peeled away. My parent's are going to develop new office space there within a few months.

Well that's all for now. I won't be heading to Central Texas after all, but my baby nephew is on his way sometime soon. I was hoping to take some overdue border goodies to some awesome people in Austin...but alas I am delayed again. Sigh.

Also, big thanks go to folks at Tin Soup for adding a link to The Art of Brownsville! Woo Hoo!

Thanks should also go to
The Daily Texican
El Chisme

Also, if anyone has any suggested links let me know. I am trying to get in the know of all that is culture and art in the Valley so if I am missing out on anything let me know. I really want to buff up this blog as an awesome resource for promotion and commentary on Valley cultural arts.

Thanks!
I am glad to know that there are Downtown Brownsville supporters out there. About the El Jardin Hotel, I heard a rumor go round that there are hopes to renovate the building after The Capitol Theatre is renovated. I am not sure where I read that..it may have been in El Rocinante, but I was not able to relocate such a comment. I am going to google search the topic and comment about it in a new post for all to see. I would like to see the revitlization of downtown Brownsville. Thanks again for the comment. Please pass the link to more people. I want more people to become aware about the cultural and artistic aspects of Brownsville and the Rio Grande Valley border region.
