Because we were intrigued (and thought you might be, too)—Fun #HoustonFact of the day: In 1905, Houston City Council passed the “Goo-Goo Eyes Ordinance” which fined men $100 for street harassment like cat-calling or whistling at women on the sidewalk, street or public space? The ordinance was later repealed but is still memorialized in this sidewalk placard Downtown.⠀ .⠀ .⠀ .⠀ .⠀ .⠀ #downtownhouston #houstonhistory #sidewalksquare #googooeyes #streetharassment #catcalling #publicspace #womenwhomeanbusiness #hou #houston #houstonwomen #houstoncitycouncil #didyouknow #funfact #downtown #cityordinance #cityofhouston #facts #ifyoudontknownowyouknow

The Farnsworth & Chambers Building was NASA’s first home in Houston. “MacKie & Kamrath, who designed many corporate, institutional, and residential buildings in the Houston area, were best-known for their modernist designs heavily influenced by Frank Lloyd Wright... In 1962 NASA’s Manned Spacecraft Center left Langley Air Force Base in Virginia and moved its main offices into the Farnsworth & Chambers Building while its permanent location, the future Johnson Space Center in Clear Lake, was under construction. A dozen nearby buildings provided additional office and laboratory space for NASA. The engineers and scientists of the Mercury Program, the United States’ first human spaceflight program, worked out of the Farnsworth & Chambers Building from 1962 until 1964, as did NASA’s seven original astronauts, “the Mercury 7”—M. Scott Carpenter, L. Gordon Cooper, John Glenn, Virgil “Gus” Grissom, Walter Schirra, Alan Shepard, and Donald “Deke” Slayton.” 📷: @e_jarvis; history: Texas State Historical Association. #modtexas #houmod #houstonmod #houstonhistory #houstonarchitecture #nasahistory #preservationhouston #texasarchitecture #midcentury #midcenturyarchitecture #postwarmodernism #modernism #buildingporn #midcentury #midcenturydetails #docomomous #texasarchitect #midcentury #midcenturyarchitecture #modernistarchitecture #muralarts #artmural #muralartist #archidetails #architecturaldetail #truetexas #txtimetravel

We can’t wait to share this amazing tasting room with you all VERY soon! This is Ben’s Den. Being that our distillery is where the original #unclebens rice plant was during WW2, we decided to give her a name to pay homage to the Houston history our distillery holds.

Inside the Buffalo Bayou Park Cistern. Built in 1926, it held 15 million gallons of water and was the source of Houston’s drinking water for decades. I’m so glad we toured it! Just amazing. #bbpcistern #houstonhistory #houstonwaterworks

On June 5th 182 years ago, Houston was incorporated as a city. As fourth generation Houstonians, The Teas family is proud to call this city home, just like the restaurant’s namesake, Dr. Merwyn Eugene Teas, did.
