Factory People Closing

My wife loves Factory People, a funky Austin boutique located on the always buzzing South Congress. It's always been very popular and received a ton of good press, even landing on the GQ100 list. I've always admired it for its style and cool architecture but apparently style and architecture weren't enough to keep the storefront open - it's going strictly online. Factory People is open for just a few more days as the whole store is 75% off. Got extra time while in Austin, walk a few doors down to The Continental Club. Roy Head of Treat Her Right fame plays on September 1st.

Oh... and here's a great place for a casual meal in Houston - Island Grill... also known as Island Smoothie. Popular with the Memorial area set, this tiny place has great pitas, healthy meals, smoothies, fish and much more. I'm partial to the fish pita. Located in a strip center at 5709 Woodway (right at Bering), there are a few spots inside and plenty of seating outdoors.
