The Shutter

A local institution has hosted its final party this past weekend. Blanco's is now closed for good, and CultureMap's Marene Gustin shares her nostalgic goodbye. "For more than 30 years Blanco's was a mainstay of the River Oaks area, the dusty little wood frame honky tonk known for boot scootin' and burgers in the shadow of high rises and million-dollar properties. The one-story blue building began life more than four decades ago as a day care center before morphing into a bar called Hondo's." [CultureMap]
