Transcript HOUSTON VOICE / AUGUST 16. 1996 15 F@RR AND 5P Restaurant Review Be Yourself at Mackmurdo 's By WILMA SUM- MORS 1 recently took some friends to Mackmurdo 's, "Houston's Casual American Restaurant & Bar," at 6006 Westheimer @ Nantucket. Mackmurdo's serves lunch & dinner from 11:00 a.m. to 10:00 p.m. Sunday—Thursday, and 11:00 a.m. to 11:00 p.m. Friday & (L-P) Hostesses Osh, Saturday. Portions Mackmurdo's of ali meals looked like enough to feed David Duke's Summer Camp for Easily Influenced Idiots with prices ranging from $2.95 to $12!95. The interior is based on a theater concept, where the restaurant acts as a stage and the people are the actors. Individuals are invited to be and enjoy themselves. We certainly were!! While Mackmurdo's is not gay owned, there were certainly quite a few of Dorothy's friends in attendance that night! Not that I drink or anything, but I managed to taste a Frozen Mackmurdo's which was pureed mandarin oranges blended with vodka (no, it wasn't McCor- mick), fresh tangerine juice and served frozen with a splash of Grand Marnier. Mackmurdo's also offers a wide variety of beers and other cocktails, but after the Frozen Mackmurdo's, who cared? The waiter purported that some ofthe menu favorites are crab cakes, grilled chicken salad, ravioli with gorgon- zola, pumpkin seed crusted rainbow trout. ...wait a minute, I seem to be getting hungry, so bring on the fork! Okay! Much better now! To continue, the grilled loin of pork and roast stuffed chicken are also favorites. Yes, Cuervolyn, there were quite a few tasty-looking vegetarian dishes available. I started out with a cup of tomato basil soup—absolutely deeeelish! The soup was a Castillian cream with romano& garlu .read is served ono you start with your appetizers. Pulleez gir[s you must serve the bread warm!! Even though the menu was tempting me with items like grilled sirloin strips (you all know how much I despise beef), spaghetti with calamari & shrimp and scal- lopini of chicken, I went with the spaghetti marinara (even Grandma can't at & Peggy get ready for a grand evening at mess this up). To my surprise, the spaghetti was incredible! 1 don't know whal Mackmurdo's does with their basil & garlic, but I would love to tiptoe through their garden at my earliest convenience—without the pumps! Don't burst the girdle yet—you simply must save room for dessert. I guess the waiter noticed my fit & trim physique and decided I had to have a piece of their rice pudding with cinnamon & sweet cream. Someone call Betty Ford! I'm hooked!! In case you are interested, they also serve white chocolate torte with pistachio sauce, fruit & nut tart with honey vanilla sauce and poached pear with vanilla ice cream & raspberry sauce, to name a few.' The ambience was exquisite, if you like loud barns!! A little acoustical tile would seem to be the cure. Once the Sun Goddess decides Houston has sweat enough, the fenced outdoor seating will be a nice place to sit, knit, and have fits looking al the beautiful people driving down Westheimer. General Manager Steve Oxen, formerly of Auntie Pasto's, Rusty Pelican, Pappadeaux and Two Pesos has his crew ready and waiting for you. Call me a cab—it's time to continue my Waist Watchers Diel at my next stop!! Be forking with you real soon!! Rating—3-3/4 triangles RATING SCALE P.,k m, U,., IV, ..J ,o„ I. U.,„!

Theft Reduction Campaign The Houston Police Department unveiled a new THEFT REDUCTION CAMPAIGN aimed ai reducing theft and hurglary of motor vehicle crimes in the downtown Central Business District. The campaign's theme, "Downtown Houston, Lowest Ifi Crime, Help Keep It That Way." is an awareness message that encourages community participation with a simple crime prevention message: DO NOT LEAVE POSSESSIONS IN YOUR VEHICLE. The Theft reduction campaign is a year long effort to reduce theft by a minimum of 5%. Theft continues to be the most reported crime in Houston, bul it is among the most preventable The theft reduction signs should be installed in ali parking lots and garages in fhe downtown Central Business District by Sept 30, 1996. The on-going theft reduction campaign will have monthly crime prevention goals through July, 1997. The campaign theme: "Downtown Houston, Lowest In Crime. Help Keep It That Way, is based on per capita total reported cr.me, tor any major U.C.R. reporting area in Houston. For the period 1991 to 1995, Uptown Business District, followed by the downtown Central Business District had ihe lowest total reported crime. Major U.C.R. reporting areas include the twenty (20) Master Police Districts and the six (6) Special Reporting Districts including, Central Business District, Neartown Business Area, Uptown Business Area, 3rd Ward Area, 5th Ward Area, and the Greenspoint Business Area. Per capita population is based on residents or employees who spend 8 to 10 hours per day in the areas and does not include transient or short term visitors. This definition of per capita more closely aligns business areas and neighborhoods and only includes those who spend significant portions of their day in an area. The downtown Central Business district has a daytime (8 to 10 hour) population of approximately 141,000. For 1995. reported crimes per thousand were 13.46 as compared to the next lowest major reporting area of 20.26 for the Uptown Business Area.
