Jefferson Davis Park is officially renamed Parque Unidad. Star Telegram report on the City Council vote: http://www.star-tele...e189469449.html The signage might still take a while to reflect the change.

(Speaking of renaming, could we have this thread changed to a label that describes the broader topic please? Took me a while to find it)

The critically acclaimed Fuego Burger will open on South Hulen, Bud Kennedy reports. http://www.star-tele...e188447494.html

I think this address was once a Philly cheesesteak place and Which Wich before that, kind of across from Wal-Mart.
