Reason No. 26: You remember who Taki was.
You cried when Taki died. (This was the giant Ice House dog.)


It bummed you out that they painted the Kool-Aid man white at Poison Girl.


They know just how you like your Rudz burger.


You actually read the Houston Press for the articles.


You'd better leave in about ten more minutes. You've got to drive back to Katy tonight.

That most douche bags live in tacky 3 story stucco monstrosities; and should really move back to the burbs..

Also, rather than Taki's death (RIP), a long-time Montrose resident would know that the death of Stray was important - so important that they printed T-Shirts with his picture on it that said "Hair of the dog"...

Seriously just drove by the other day and thought to myself, "I miss Taco Cabana."

Some of us remember when The Montrose was a place one could still get mummified and accidentally tortured to death.

If you're in Royal Oak so much that they recognize you, just go back to the suburbs, "bro."

Back in 2000 I walked into cafe brasil on a random Monday night expecting a chill coffee shop but instead found a mix of coffee hipsters, booze loungers, DJs, and awesome people watching, and from that moment on I knew I wanted to live there!!

Montrose is timeless and therefore one can never spend enough time in Montrose. Long live the 77006, its a way of life.

I remember when Mangos was called The Oven... But then, I also remember when Avant Garden was called Helios and remember when Helios was called The Mausoleum.

I remember when my rent wasn't so goddamn high too.

I also still miss the Stanky Whore.

When, pray tell, would the mayor "not have been caught dead riding in the Gay Pride Parade?" Was this at some point in the Seventies? Oh, wait... I'm willing to bet that the author of this piece wasn't alive in the Seventies. In fact, I'm willing to bet that the author of this piece hasn't spent all that much time in Montrose.

@gossamersixteen Chances are they will move back to the 'burbs when they have children. Too bad that their ugly condos will still be there when they leave.

@Jacob Majors We also buried Stray on the property. Stray was a grumpy, mean, old dog, but we loved him, too.

@Smedley Oh, The Oven... so much debauchery. 

And before the original Late Nite Pie, it was Chulo's Icehouse.

I don't think Brown, Lanier, or Whitmire ever rode in the Pride Parade and they were all 80s and 90s. For that matter, I'm not sure Bill White did, either.

@MadMac Bill White is a strong LGBT ally. I doubt that... not sure about the others though.
