Welcome To Case's Column

Let me say a big welcome to all of you for joining me here. I'm going to call these blog meetings Case's Column. I wanted to use "Corner", but that was already taken. Since 2008, it's been a real privilege to come on here and share some of my life with you, and it's a big world where we live.

In these blogs, I'll just speak whatever is on my mind, but we will be playing within the rules here. I may pick a particular topic, point out an event, or shoot the breeze. I'm a little bit of an essayist at times, so I'll just speak what's on my mind, and I might tell a story or two. Or, I might spew out an opinion or three. There will be some serious moments, some tender, some poignant, but there will also be those moments that you'll just bust out laughing. But, hopefully, everything will be in good fun here. And, of course, there's a place below for your comments and thoughts as we go along here. So feel free to join me for the ride -- I sure as heck hope I'm doing this right and not making any mistakes.

Thanks for taking your time in reading Case's Column. Hopefully, you'll enjoy being entertained by it as much as I've enjoyed putting these writings together. And thanks for the time you spend in City-Data.com, where it's great to be alive!

Sometimes, when you drive around a city, you just never know what you're going to run into. Well, I just happened to be strolling along Westheimer Road near Houston's Galleria District, and, lo and behold, your writer made an interesting discovery.

And because this website is City-Data.com, it's another opportunity to inform the masses.

Katz's Deli has always been an institution in New York City. It has also been an institution in Houston for more years than I realized. They've been in the Montrose area for nearly twenty-five years, but they've since added a location in The Woodlands. Your writer has had the pleasure of stopping there on more than one occasion, and each visit had been good every time. That aforementioned discovery that I made yesterday happened to be a new Katz's location. And here's the bigger surprise: It's not number three!

You see, a location in the Heights area of Houston actually opened a couple of years ago (Yes, during the dreaded plandemic). I did not know that, so, evidently, that one flew under the radar screen. Reportedly, that specific site, as well as the others, are still doing well. But this new one near the Galleria just opened up. They'll have a good clientele over there, although I wish that they'd have considered Katy for their new site, as that is a hot area to be right now.

Oddly enough, my first experience with Katz's happened in Austin many years ago, when they had an eatery on the famed Sixth Street. It has since closed, but to this day, Katz's cannot find a suitable location in Austin, as ludicrous as that sounds. I'm surprised that they haven't considered the Domain area, and that's where I would have looked first.

Hopefully, they'll consider that sometime. For now, though, I'm planning another trip to Houston in November, and my sights are set on that Woodlands location. As to what I'll get, that remains to be seen. This writer just looks forward to sitting at a Katz's and soaking in the New York deli experience.

    Case, it looks like you've given me a new "go-to" if I ever get back to Houston. You've talked me into it.

    And your Astros are playoff-bound, too!

    What really made my Houston trip..........other than the great food?

    When Phlash Phelps played Glen Campbell's "Galveston" on '60s Gold while I was on the west side of Houston. Great stuff!
