2. Modern general store set to open second location at historic Houston Famers Market. It's the latest step to transform the market into a citywide destination for food lovers.

3. Pioneering Washington Avenue bar will make way for new late-night pizzeria. The bar's success paved the way for its founders to open Cottonwood and La Grange.

4. Cold Shiner still flows at reopened legendary Houston dive bar. The design has changed, but the welcoming atmosphere remains.
