Tilman Fertitta's Galveston Pleasure Pier Is Taking Shape

TILMAN FERTITTA WILL NOT BE DENIED. He promised Galveston a (no doubt overpriced) "Pleasure Pier" by Memorial Day, and it looks like he's well on the way.
The new amusement park, built on the site of the old Flagship Hotel, is expected to draw three million visitors a year.
Our Allison McPhail was down on the island shooting Mardi Gras and got this look at the project's progress.
