Transcript JANUARY 16. 1987 / MONTROSE VOICE 21 A Travel Rally and the Changing of Tuam Around Town by Elroy Forbes Montrose Voice Social Director d Travel Rally Merlin, Ken Simmons, Reba Wench, King Henry VIII & Queen Anne Boleyn, The Mystery Monk and Fifi, the French Wench, three members of the British Caledonia Bagpipe Band were but a few of the entertainers as some 500 travel agents and guests filled the Central Ballroom ofthe Hotel Inter-Continental Wednesday night at the British Caledonia Travel Show. A mystery play was solved and two winners won round trips to London. Other drawings included a free trip to Paris, Amsterdam, Geneva and Brussels. Some 32 booths promoted European tours, continental hotels, castle tours, English pubs and the like. A lavish buffet and several bars treated the crowd as royalty. Attending agents from our community included Advance Travel's David and Ted; Kevin Hill of World Travel International; Glenn Slade of Adventure Tours; Almeda Travel; Atlas Travel; Freda of Travel Unlimited; and Kenn of International Travel, plus many others. Mike Wiengart, founder of Houston Business Journal, now president of Utopia Travel was there. On Monday, the entire show goes aboard a Mississippi River boat to %?im gLHHD The old Exile The day after Christmas, the historic Exile Club on Bell Street was bulldozed. A slice of history bit the dust. But on Valentine's Day, Exile II will open on Tuam at Baldwin Street. The new club will have a stage, dressing rooms, game room, a long L-shaped bar, a cruise rack and a half-block parking lot. The space, formerly the Greek Island Restaurant, is up the street from popular Harry's Restaurant and The Lazy J. Owners Tony, Peter (Smokey) Elijelizalde, Bob Weaver and Joel Cooper plan to preserve the best of the old Exile with super innovations. At 109 Tuam, you can wave goodbye to the Same OI* Hole. New owners are carefully redoing the building to open the later part of February. Watch for King Henry VIII and Queen Anne Boleyn are yours truly and Catherine Pirsarski at the British Caledonia Travel Show steam out of New Orleans. I want to be there for that. □ Our Changing Landscape The old trolley line stopped on Fairview al Mandell. For five cents you could ride up Fairview past Taft Street, around the bend and onto Tuam. At Smith Street you connected with the trolley for downtown. The trolley lines were closed in the 40s and the tracks taken up. Except for some minor changes, Tuam has remained the same. Today, Tuam is about to leave its sleepy past and rival Pacific Street for action. A few blocks north lies the BRB. Going east, with some clever driving, you can can reacji The Venture-N. announcements about this location. FYI: remember the Wonder Bar, Montrose at Westheimer? That may give you a clue as to what will happen at this location. Meanwhile, improvements will convert the top of the 01' Hole to an apartment. The popular patio will be remodeled, too. Farther up Tuam is a structure that has caused much controversy. Conservatives claim it is a waste of "our" money. But civic groups such as Avon- dale, Neartown, Neartown Business Alliance and The Greater Montrose Business Guild plan to send awards to this unique HL&P substation. A square block of unsightly electrical transformers was changed into a landscaped pavilion containing plaques to honor outstanding Houstonians who lived near (his new landmark. Brick, tile. The owners of Exile II glass and aluminum have transformed this block into a marvel of urban design. Next time I will tell you about changes on West Gray as it transcends out of decay. □ Alley Benefit 1 hope that you have your tickets for the Jan. 30 and 31 performances of Larry Kramer's The Normal Heart.

The last party was one of the best of the year. Kevin Trayor, visiting Houston from Seattle, had his truck stolen from behind the Boobie Rock while he was exploring the mystery of Mary's. Naturally he wants the two-tone brown Ford F-100 pickup truck back. If you see Washington license PDQ-003 on a 1983 pickup, please call 522-8970 and leave word. All of Kevin's luggage was inside the cab. The Wildlife is really back at Mary's. Saturday at 11:00 p.m. there will be a "Welcome Home Pickles" celebration. Hot deejay David Royalty reports the Brazos River Bottom signed a contract with Isaac Pay ton Sweat, also known as the king of the Cotton Eyed Joe. He will perform four shows in two days, Jan. 30 and Feb. 1. David is so excited he spun the first public playing of Isaac's newest song, "The Joe Bailey Roll" and is anxiously awaiting for the disc to hit the national charts. Decorator Warren Duncancson has arrived back from Hawaii after a vacation with Tony. W.D. stopped over in Los Angeles to visit an ailing aunt when he met the Rev. Jesse Jackson at L.A. International Airport. Warren had to purchase another ticket for, in his excitement, he had Jackson autograph the only thing handy, his air ticket. While Warren is busy getting ready for the Christmas in Montrose meeting (Jan. 26, 7:00 p.m., 1413 Westheimer), Tony has flown on to Chicago for business. Robert Howery reported, while dining at Charlies, he is planning a London playcation in the very near future. Others in the crowd included Joe Porro, Tim Pah I, and Alton Marshall. To the unintiated who may have stumbled into The Ranch last Tuesday, the mayhem was centered around Becky's birthday celebration. Congrats and many more to Becky. ,., ......;
