"Who Said Beer Served No Purpose!?" Unique / Unusual / One-Of-A-Kind Tip by cmarsek

  Every college student's dream!

My brother and his two roommates flew into Houston from NYC and after lunch we drove by this house on the way to their hotel in the Galleria area. The house is located just off Memorial at 222 Malone. To find it, leave downtown and go west on Memorial past Shepherd. Turn right on Malone and the house is two blocks up on your right.

The house is not really a destination...but is something to see if you are passing through the area. It really is amazing to look at and wonder if the owner saved all the empty cans and then covered his house with them, or covered the house as he drank the cans. And was he perhaps drunk while he was covering his house??? It is definitely a one of a kind type sight...but don't get your hopes up too high, there is nothing to do but get out of your car, take a look, and then get back in your car. Enjoy your exploration of Houston!
