Texas is a little more complicated than 'wet' and 'dry'.
This might help.

DRY COUNTIES

Parts of Brazoria county are still dry. Manvel and Alvin I believe are still dry. Pearland just started selling wine in grocery stores last year. And unlike Houston, we didn't any liquor stoes close by in Pearland. I have learned to stock up at Spec's in Houston anyday until 9pm except Sundays.

Houston proper is alcohol friendly. Places like Lake Jackson not so much.

I don't think the alcohol laws are going to change anytime in the near future.

Probably not. The TABC code ran up on a sunset date just a few years ago. Unless something extraordinary happens I can't imagine the legislature revisiting it again any time soon.
