Cue up the Queen, another one is biting the dust in Houston.

Early Sunday morning (a/k/a An Ungodly Hour), that non-descript seven-story building at 2200 Post Oak, across from Maggiano's and Kenny & Ziggy's, will go boom.

Streets nearby will be closed from 6 am until 9:15 am, although parking should be easy enough to get at that time of day. The blast is scheduled for 7:15.

We'll be there to document the death of a building that once housed...the Norwegian Consulate! And a Compass Bank Drive-Thru!

Hopefully this one won't result in frantic speculation about whether a person was seen running in the building right before the big boom.

Probably the best place to watch, by the way, will be the parking lot between the Sports Authority and Maggiano's. BYOB.

Keep the Houston Press Free... Since we started the Houston Press, it has been defined as the free, independent voice of Houston, and we would like to keep it that way. Offering our readers free access to incisive coverage of local news, food and culture. Producing stories on everything from political scandals to the hottest new bands, with gutsy reporting, stylish writing, and staffers who've won everything from the Society of Professional Journalists' Sigma Delta Chi feature-writing award to the Casey Medal for Meritorious Journalism. But with local journalism's existence under siege and advertising revenue setbacks having a larger impact, it is important now more than ever for us to rally support behind funding our local journalism. You can help by participating in our "I Support" membership program, allowing us to keep covering Houston with no paywalls.
