mellicious: pink manicure (skeletons)

I am still getting used to my new neighborhood. I know where the grocery store is, of course, and the library is practically right across the street, which is always nice. There are not many (non-fast-food) restaurants nearby, but there are a HUGE number of service providers, I guess you'd call them, of every kind. There are hair stylists and accountants and doctors and car care places galore. I'm not sure why, exactly. Of course, it's a high-income community, overall, I guess that's part of the answer, at least. And I think the answer to the dearth of restaurants is that they're all over closer to the freeway. Clear Lake has a ton of restaurants - I think I read once that it was one of the highest concentrations anywhere in the US - and since Friendswood sort of adjoins Clear Lake, a lot of potential retaurant owners probably figure there's too much competition already.

(Meanwhile, I have been craving Joe's BBQ ever since I answered the food meme a couple of days ago. I think we are going to have to go to Alvin - the opposite direction from Clear Lake - this weekend.)

It sounds like you kinda traded up, other than the lack of restaurants. There's not much of a downside to having all those businesses handy.

We had to satisfy the BBQ craving this week after we caught part of a "Ramsay's Kitchen Nightmares" where he helped a soul food restaurant. There's just no substitute for really good barbecue.
