Last week I decided to check out the bookstores on I-45 North. I went in all of them on Thursday and Friday evening.
Here is what I found:
There is a bookstore located in the shopping center at approximately 11471 North Freeway, Houston, TX 77060. I did not go in there because it looked dead. It was located next to a Titty Bar and a Mexican Restaurant. The odds of finding BBC there were pretty low. PASS
There is a Katz’s but it does not appear to have an arcade. I skipped it. It’s next door to Tool Club.
10206 N Freeway – 24 / 7 Video. Seems to be run by the same folks who own the one on 290 and the one in SE Houston. Pretty damn clean for one of their locations. But dead. I went in to check it out anyhow. One pudgy Mexican guy. Clerk was polite. Seemed like there was a homeless person camping in there as well. They have video of the parking lot, which I always appreciate. Several booths were locked. Several others had missing doors. There were paper towels in a dispenser in the arcade. The bathroom was clean and stocked, but had a sign not to flush paper…. ick. Big arcade with at least 20 booths, lots of potential. I checked this out again late Friday night and parking was empty. Not sure how they make money.
8920 N Freeway – Video Store. Seems to be related to the Gifts & More in SW Houston. Same paint scheme. Very clean. Crappy video quality. Bathroom does not lock. There were a couple of Mexicans there when I was there… .nothing I’d fuck. Don’t get me wrong, I’ll ride big latin dick. I just don’t do little pokers! Polite attendant and overall nice store. There is a “Spa” aka whore house next door. Saw another fat Mexican pissing in the parking lot as I was leaving. Really hot… NOT.
7720 N. Shepherd. I-45 24/7 Video. This is a big sleazy, dirty bookstore. Booths are torn up, buttons hardly work, speakers are fucked up. Ice Cold AC, Bathroom lock is backwards. Toilet paper present. Went in on Thursday and it was dead. Went back Friday and it was busy…. tired queens, scary CD’s, and a couple of older black guys. Had to wake the attendant up Friday. He was fast asleep. lol. Parking lot has huge potholes and there was someone sitting in the same car both nights in the parking lot. Lots of fun could be had here with the right crowd. I get the anything goes vibe from them.
Houston 420 – 4121 N Freeway. Never saw any cars there. Google has busy data on it…. suggests it should have been hopping. The other 420 locations are anything goes.
That’s about it. Did not find any hot action but there are some promising places to follow up on.
