Transcript LOCAL COLOR sandwich, a 2,000 calory snack of bacon, cheese and beef from which few walk away hungry or walk away at all, for that matter. Boye, 24, says he has no desire to become a franchise:"! just want to get the air conditioner in this place fixed-that's my ambition now," he said, mopping both brow and floor. Up on Bissonnet, next to Hard Thymes Soup Kitchen (hours: almost never), it's worth wading over construction debris to get to Munchie's, which not only has 50 brands of beer at prices from .75, but also features on weekends a classical music quintet. The place has an ice-house layout, so you risk the big SLE at picnic tables outside, but as you sit and scratch that possible bite, you can't help thinking this is the way it s'posed to be, and dammit why can't we enjoy outdoors everywhere like at this homey little joint? Neal, at Neal's Ice Cream, just in front of the River Oaks Tennis Club on Kirby, has just brought in Houston's first Italian lces(fifty cents) in many flavors including watermelon. Neal has been open only a few weeks, and you will see him in the backroom, making the ice cream, wearing surgical greens. He was a medical student in Grenada for a few years, but decided ice cream did more for people's health and state of mind than medicine. Neal has a mid-west dairy state background and he says most of the other ice cream in Houston is an udder disaster. Mellorine?He wouldn't even bring himself to discuss it! ENTERPRISE Jim Alexander serves desserts- right in the kisser. He and Glen Sanders operate Pie Got-U (going on 200 dissatisfied customers.) The standard hit costs $30, with the hit simple, a Polaroid picture and a description of anything you may have missed about the incident. For deluxe services, up to $75, Jim and Glen really go to town, collecting gossip, composing limericks, and cataloging the victim's sins, life right before the hit. Up to now, the meringue-mashing has gone to presidents of airlines, oil company executives, and television personalities with no hitches except the manager of Hugo's, who objected strenuously to the flavor of the occasion. In case you never heard of Aron Kay, (the original Pie Man, imaginatory ancestor of Pie-Got-U,) tossing pies, a silent screen laffgetter device, became nationally prominent in the Nixon years. Kay, a master of disguise, an anarchist, and loosely tied to the underground press, put pies in the face of Henry Kissinger, Howard Hunt, and the mayor of New York, Ed Koch, (the only one who sued him- unsuccessfully). Some of Kay's imitators did less well- the young man who pied the Guru Maharaj Ji (the teenage god) had his arm nearly broken by holy thugs, and the attempted pie-ing of former Wisconsin governor Patrick J Lucey (now John Anderson's running mate) resulted in arrest and alleged beating of a prankster. Kay himself retired from the business in 1978, produced one recipe book of tossed d'^serts, and is today half- underground, since he is wanted for misdemeanors around the banquet table in a dozen northern states. "I'm a cockeyed optimist- or maybe a Pollyanna," said Barbara Busby as she opened her new contemporary gift shop, Domicile at 2423 Rice in the Rice Village. "I just got back from the Dallas market and no one was buying anything- I was buying everything in sight,"she said. The results of the choices of Busby, the former director of interior design at Foley's, will be evident during her grand opening week, September 15-20. Each day of the week visiting experts will demonstrate different items that are stocked in Domicile, including toys and games, crystal, kitchenware, and home furnishings. Busby plans to stay open on Thursday nights, an experiment she is conducting along with the Village Cheese Shop, in an attempt to bring people back to the University shopping area. Busby's husband , Don Huddle, is a professor of economics at Rice, but Busby says his role in the new store will be "strictly behind the shelves." If you pass by Iszadora's , 1500 West Alabama, you may see the store staff out front shaking hands with passersby, clipping the hedges in a sunbonnet, picnick ing or standing on the stair of the period clothing shop. They can't complain, even though they are paid only in attention- their heads are filled with air alone.Like a lot of employees , you say?Not exactly, these are 1940's mannikins, decked out by manager Stuart Axelson, to demonstrate a little of his selection of fashions which date from Victorian to the 50s. Each room in the store represents an era of the past, and the shop is the largest carrier of vintage furs in the city. It also has period Western wear, lingerie, jewelry, and toys, with prices ranging from $35 for a black crepe dress to $350 for a black silk turn-of-the-century gown. Axelson, Mary Van Osdell, and Robbie Alba own the shop and stage occasional dress-up parties to exhibit their range and newly acquired items. Said Axelson, "Most of my customers are collectors. Some of them are a little weird- people who like to wear old clothes and live that kind of life style. There's an old clothing clique in Houston, and I myself run around with the owners of Hollywood Legends, Air, Flashbacks, and Peabody's, and we talk about the scene , I have been really happy with the response we get, from actors, female impersonators, collectors, and customers who are looking for something unusual or special to wear." Mary Ann Williamson, owner of the Heights Book Store (motto: Read a Book, Help Stamp Out TV ) announces her grand opening and a Whippersnapper Workshop for September. Every Sunday from 11-2, she will have the Sunday NY Times at prices cheaper than the Avalon Drug Store, and a runner who purveys Benny Boyle and Barbara Williams are cooking burgers again at that orange barrel at Mandell and Richmond. (See story) One of Iszadora's mannequins seems to be enjoying a picnic on the shop's lawn at Alabama and Mulberry. (See story) 10 HOUSTON BREAKTHROUGH
