We agree! "Robocop 2" (1990): For a franchise supposedly set in Detroit, the filmmakers sure spent a lot of time in Texas. The first "Robocop" was shot in Dallas and this follow-up was shot in downtown Houston and Fifth Ward. #nickelproud #TIL

    These are the 50 greatest Texas movies ever. Ever.
    You want to start a fight? Ask a room of culture vultures to cite the most "Texas" film ever made. Fists tighten and eyes narrow when somebody suggests "Reality Bites" deserves the distinction. Faces offer mortified incredulation when "Giant" is cast as representative of today's Texans. And don't even mention "Urban Cowboy."

Howard is Wheatley, through and through, and will always represent Fifth Ward proudly. An example of what one who puts in hard work should be and can do. http://bit.ly/2KGYv6c #mondaymotivation #nickelproud

    Dolphins cornerback Xavien Howard is a mentor on a mission in the Fifth Ward
    Don't tell Xavien Howard what he shouldn't be, or can't do. He isn't one to listen to such negatives. Howard has regularly turned doubters into believers, by following his own path and believing in himself. That's a significant part of the message he shared with a group of youngsters at his first football camp on Saturday morning.

"He’s having the pork-and-beef sausage made to his recipe by Burt’s Meat Market in Fifth Ward." Great (and tasty!) shout out to a historic and important Fifth Ward business. #nickelproud https://goo.gl/bJDHQQ Burt's Meat Mkt & Cajun Foods Henderson & Kane General Store

    Old Sixth Ward's Henderson & Kane General Store serves barbecue with a side of tradition and history
    The Old Sixth Ward just east of downtown may be Houston's best-kept secret. This tiny pocket of mostly late-19th-century Victorian homes is easily missed by those of us zooming past on Memorial to the south and a raucous stretch of Washington to the north.
