Toopee's Coffee House

1830 W Alabama
Houston 77006

Owner: Caroline Burum

Toopee's was a popular lesbian coffee place/restaurant
from around June 1994 through 1999

First mention of an event there was September 1994   



and jumping to 1997 for the next one I found...
they did very little advertising


This article helps...
saying (in October 1997) that "last June marked the second
anniversary", it began in June 1994...
