The current tenants in the here and now are the following:
103 - O'Bannon's Taphouse (an Irish-themed pub, if the name didn't give it away)
109 - Paddock Lane
113 - Tipsy Turtle
It's been difficult to find out buildings about this strip simply because they change addresses. For example, there was a Marine recruiters at 105 Boyett in the mid-1990s (likely absorbed into O'Bannon's), and even until the late 2000s there was "Pinky's New School Tattoos" at 113 Boyett. Here a few more ads for your viewing pleasure.
late Whole Earth Catalog, this ad is from 1985 and is still around in Houston, Austin, and other major cities...just not in BCS.
Almost a decade earlier, you could get a motorcycle there (University Cycling).
At 109 Boyett, there was a small café here in the 1980s.
Gizmo's Cafe & Bar: it's from an old copy of InSite Magazine, this is now the site of Paddock Lane. Gizmo's was not the first tenant here, but it's what I have information for.
Other tenants I've picked up from city directories:
107 - Boyett Properties (I'm not sure if this was actually an office or just a placeholder since the Boyetts still probably everything on the block, found in 1986 and 1991 directories)
113 - U.S. Marine Corps (recruiters have been around since at least from 1986 to 2005...and to back it up about the directories being spotty, it wasn't listed in the 2000 one)
105 - The Cue (found in '96 directory)
103 - Hole in the Wall (2000 directory, I believe it was interconnected with Shadow Canyon)
By no means is the list complete! If I missed anything ("Ozone", "Vertigo" being among the not-here), please mention it in the comments!
Some other changes:
- You'll notice that the link to the "Forum" has been down for the last several days. In my quest to create one, much like how Houston Architecture.info Forum became a life of its own, the first step to have a better forum is to have a popular website to begin with, of which this was not. The forum hasn't been deleted but has gone nowhere, and is likely to remain so.
- This will probably be the last Wednesday post for a while due to Christmas break. This means that they're probably MORE posts overall, though I need to fix some of the older posts.
- As of when this post went live, a sudden change in information meant we had to temporarily pull our Mariel's post. Weingarten's did really exist!
