It's been closed since Hurricane Ike, but today the Spindletop Restaurant in downtown Houston finally reopened. The restaurant, atop the Hyatt Regency Hotel, is Houston's only revolving rooftop restaurant. It first opened in 1972, but suffered extensive damage during Ike.

In its 38 years, it is estimated some 1,800 couples have become engaged in Spindletop.
