Away, away, with rum, by gum

The greater Houston Heights area, known primarily for its Axis of Liberal Bloggers, is also one of Houston's oldest neighborhoods. It was once an independent city, but like many such places was annexed by Houston in 1918. At the time, it was a dry city, and the area has stayed dry ever since.

Now a local restaurant is applying for a private, member's-only liquor license which is causing a nearby church to kick up a fuss. Tiffany and I eat at the Kaldi Cafe regularly. It's a fairly low-key place, favored by slackers and families alike. I really don't understand why there's a problem. Other restaurants in the area have BYOB policies, so it's not like you can't have a bottle of wine with dinner.

I'm rooting for Kaldi. We have an application to join their club at home, and I know Tiffany's all set to fill it out and pay her dues.

Ginger also takes note of this.

Hi Charles!
Thanks for your support of Kaldi Cafe!
Just a quick note to let you know we are very close! As a matter of fact, we are going to take original member applications only through September 1, then we are turning our paperwork over to the TABC.
Make sure that Tiffany sends in the applications and check so you both can benefit from being on the original members list!!
Thanks again for your continued support!!
