WASHINGTON CORRIDOR — Washington Ave biker bar Outlaw Dave’s Worldwide Headquarters recently closed after five years of operation. The location was home to his radio show and also was known for the ‘surprisingly good bar food’. The DJ felt that he had "to focus [his] energy on being more effect at the rest of [his] endeavours".

UPPER KIRBY EXTRA — The Rice Box truck will be closing up shop to transfer into a brick-and-mortar location in Greenway Plaza. John Peterson, the owner, wants to set a high bar in the Greenway food court and be an example for others to follow. Meanwhile, both trucks will continue to operate on the street: one in Montrose across from Poison Girl and the other at University of Houston. [Houston Press]
