Thanksgiving morning, I drove to downtown Houston to watch the H-E-B parade. I saw an entrance to an underground garage, pulled in, paid $10, parked in a hurry and came up for air and the parade.
It was the first time I used the Theater District Parking Garage. Until this year, I could park in the Chronicle’s garage downtown, but we’ve moved to swanky new quarters at Loop 610 and the Southwest Freeway. Bye bye, free downtown parking.
When it was time to go home, I had absolutely no clue where my car was. No idea what level, what color, which entrance or which lot. I didn’t know there are three different underground parking garages, connected like the Chutes and Ladders kids game, in the downtown Theater District.
