New Smoothie King Opens at 10560 Westheimer


A new Smoothie King, complete with a drive-thru window, opened in Westchase District last week at 10560 Westheimer. Store manager Veronica Zepeda and her staff are serving 32 oz fruit smoothies for $5 and meal-replacement smoothies for $6 on Fridays, so drive by and say hi.

The location, which was the former home of Logan Farms, has 2,350 square feet of commercial space available for lease - we think that could result in a fruitful blending of businesses. For leasing information, contact Bill Robertson with Royal Management Group, 713-952-9900.

WDCF Fundraising Breakfast Nov. 1 at Cantina Laredo

WDCF Fundraising Breakfast Speakers
HD Chambers and Scott Muri will be the featured speakers discussing "Follow the Funding: How Texas Redistributes Your Taxes for Public Schools."

What's more refreshing than a cold glass of orange juice first thing in the morning? How about a candid conversation among West Houston's education leaders about public school funding issues prior to the next state legislative session in January? How about BOTH things together?

Join school superintendents HD Chambers (Alief ISD) and Scott Muri (Spring Branch ISD) for breakfast on Thursday, November 1 to hear inside perspectives on the challenges facing public school funding in Texas from two of the city's top public education officials.

The breakfast will take place at Cantina Laredo, 11129 Westheimer Road. The event will kick off with networking at 7 a.m., followed at 7:30 a.m. with a seated breakfast and presentation.

Sponsorships are available for $200. They include breakfast and premium seating for four. Individual seats may be purchased for $55. Proceeds benefit the Westchase District Community Fund.
