Fitzgerald’s You will be missed & in our hearts forever…

Fitzgerald’s You will be missed & in our hearts forever…

Fitzgerald’s closed down and torn down this week.  42 Years in business its been around all of my life.  I remember trying to sneak in when I was 15 years old, ( I actually got in a few time … hhehehehhe).   Now with the prime corner in Houston Heights, i’m sure a big new retail business is coming.  Some talks of a new steak house, and some talks of a retail shopping center.  Hummmmm…. any ideas folks?

From Wikipedia

Fitzgerald’s was one of the oldest and widely recognized live music venues in the Greater Houston area. The club has been at the top of the live music scene in Houston since it opened in 1977. Fitzgerald’s is commonly referred to as “Fitz.” Fitzgerald’s closed and the 100 year old building was demolished in 2019. Wikipedia

I'm Allen ... nice to meet you. I was born and raised here in the Houston Heights. I went to school here from Elementary to High School and off to U of H. I love to blog, although i'm not that great at it. It's much harder then I thought. I like to play chess, meditate, read and enjoy fishing too (one time I caught a big shark!). My grandpa bought his house on 26th street in the Houston Heights for $55K in 1965 on a double lot, can you believe that?! Things sure have changed here for the better. I like to inspire folks with positive messages, and I hope to change the world. I volunteer at Divina Providence church, helping abused children. Someone helped me (Mr. Leonard Davis) years ago, so i'm paying the universe back. I was a kid with little direction, and left home at 14 years old. I never had a father, or father figure, in fact I never even seen a picture of my father. I was raised by my mother, who happens to be lesbian. She did her absolute best, but with food stamps & section 8, she can only do so much. Surrounded with turmoil & drugs all around me, somehow I made it thru. I think seeing how drugs can affect a person with my own two eyes, really scared me as a child. So it's fair to say I have had my fair share of problems. I don't share these issues to make you sad, I hope that it reaches a child out there to inspire him or her & that you can make something of yourself, even when you are given the worst situations. I also hope to inspire folks who are doing well in life. Give back to society with your time and or any efforts you can provide. I am a true example that one person (Mr.Davis) can make a difference in the universe. Luckily by the grace of God, Mr. Davis helped me. He was a pasture at a church, & took notice of me. It is super strange how one single person, can change the universe. Thank God
