The Soon to be Well Known Marina Cafe in Kemah!
Posted In: Kemah News Posted by James Brockway on 09/23/2014

I hesitate to send this blog out about Marina Cafe because I’m afraid more people will start going to this restaurant and I’ll have to wait in line, but after eating there for the first time this past weekend, it would be unfair not to share this experience to everyone in the Kemah/Clear Lake/League City area.

Marina Cafe, located at 620 Marina Bay Drive opened in December, 2013 and is owned by Jim Ginger. If I had to pick what I liked best about the place, I would say location, menu and staff (all of them vying for first place on the list). When my wife and I and her in-laws arrived there this past Sunday for brunch, I must admit I was skeptical since I already had my own number one brunch location in the Clear Lake area and I’m a creature of habit; plus, I’m gluten free and I’m always wary that there won’t be many selections for me. But when we were seated outside on the back patio overlooking a peaceful canal that feeds into Clear Lake, I knew that the location test had been met. Next test, the staff. Tiffany Carroll, the manager, immediately greeted us with a patient smile although she was scurrying from table to table, making sure no one waited for long. When I asked about gluten free items, she said they had great gluten-free pancakes that a few of her customers had requested they start making. The staff test had now been met-pleasantness and willingness to meet the needs of customers ranked high on their agenda. When our food arrived, in a timely manner, it was fantastic! Now as a celiac (gluten-free person), I tend to have low expectations-I’m just happy to see gluten free items show up on a menu, but the food was delicious. My wife, who had the tamales, loved them. My sister-in-law, who has been to Marina Cafe several times with her family, and was the person responsible for us going to the restaurant, offered up more suggestions from her past experiences: BBQ Shrimp Street Tacos, the Classic Reuben and the BLT!

I’m looking forward to my next visit!

Watch via Webcam as the Boeing 747 Space Shuttle Carrier is Reassembled
Posted In: Clear Lake News | Nassau Bay News | Webster News Posted by Pam Moore on 05/27/2014

Space Center Houston, located at 1601 NASA Parkway, is in the process of building an exciting new $12 million complex to celebrate Houston’s leading role in space exploration!  This new Texas landmark will be the first place in the world where visitors can see the full-scale Space Shuttle model and the retired Shuttle Carrier Aircraft (SCA-905) in classic piggyback configuration.

Space Center Houston has aimed a webcam at crews as they reassemble the modified NASA Space Shuttle Carrier that rolled down Highway 3 from Ellington Field and then traveled down NASA Parkway late in April. Watch via webcam at: http://spacecenter.org/giving/747-project/.

The photos (below) were taken on April 29th, after the Boeing 747 had completed its first day of travel and was “parked” parallel to Highway 3.
