30 Years ago I lived in Houston and we used to go to a bar called Maribelle's...it was PINK and up on stilts on the sand, kind of open aired....had a lot of fun times there. I am planning a trip to come back and visit in October and was wondering is the ORIGINAL Maribelle's still there and if so can you tell me where??
Also remember a bar called the TURTLE and if someone asked you if you were a turtle you had to answer in a certain way or you had to buy a drink!

Maribelle's was washed away by Hurricane Ike, but opened up in a strip mall on NASA #1.

Turtle is still there.

Maribelle's isn't the same though! Last time we went... they played nothing but Tejano music.

Last night (8-15-84) my wife and I spent in Texas we partied at Maribelle's in Kemah with her office buddies. The very one you speak of. I have a picture but nowhere to post on here. Yes, opened air...that night had a three piece combo and we rocked, barefooted on the wooden floors. Then someone broke a bottle and ruined that gig.
