When It Rains, It Pours: Super Happy Fun Land Faces Demolition/Relocation [11/08/2007 11:25:00 AM]:
What the hell is going on, people? I mean, I've known Houston's a blink-and-you'll-miss-it city since I first moved here, but lately it's been a little ridiculous. On top of the news that The Proletariat
is likely going to be knocked down to make way for the Richmond light rail
, now the folks up at Super Happy Fun Land
in the Heights are facing the wrecking ball, too
. 'Cause y'know, there aren't enough
condos in the freakin' Heights as it is, right? Dammit!
On the positive side, the SHFL folks had apparently been planning a move of their own anyway, so the landlord's deadline (end of January, apparently) isn't the crushing blow it could've been. The SHFLers are now in the process of looking for a new, bigger, better, sparklier place to live/host shows, and naturally, they're not letting the looming shadow of bulldozers & cranes get 'em down -- they've even dubbed this the "Super Happy Relocation Experience"; ah, gotta love those cheery SHFL folks...
At any rate, if you can help them in any way, whether it's with the moving itself or with the large piles of $$$ they'll likely need to get a new place, please contact 'em at "info" at "superhappyfunland dot com". Say what you will about the place, the Land of the Super Happy is definitely a unique little venue, and despite what the developers seem to think, H-town desperately needs places like that. Otherwise, we'd be Dallas, and nobody wants that.
