That hurts your argument even more. Hotel taxes are primarily paid by non-Harris County people.

My cousin has a dog named Deogy. His other two dogs are Spot and Fido. True story. Say what you want, but every time a person comes over and meets the dogs they think it's the coolest set of names ever. So "on the nose" it's actually a tad clever.

But they are still taxes and could (and should) be used for general revenue, not a Billionaire's playpen.

They only exist for the playpen and the billionaire doesn't own it Harris County does.

NRG Stadium sounds okay to me. It's the college bowl games that are especially bad. Beef o Brady's Bowl? Jeez.

Interesting. Sort of opens up a "what would you call it" train of thought.

I would call it The Biggest Game In Franchise History Stadium.

Not sure about now but in the past if you lived in harris county and stayed at a hotel you could show your license and they would take that tax off.

I don't remember the "Abyss" though I'm sure I have stared into it, a bunch!!!
Dude, Cardis is the name I was trying to remember! That place was ground zero for hard rock and metal bands back in the day. I've puked in that bathroom too many times to remember. Back before I know what limitations were, y'know?!

Very cool that you saw Diamond Darrell before Cowboys From Hell. I saw Pantera every time after that album, but by then they were playing bigger venues.

Lol, I once saw Dee Snyder damn near get a guy killed when Twisted Sister was there. The guy's big offense was he didn't get up and clap his hayands up high....lol.

I miss that place. There was one in Austin for a while but there was only one Cardi's.
