Cowtown: The Week That Was

There are plenty of odds and ends around Cowtown that I've been meaning to catch up on from fellow bloggers in the Panther City:

  • Bernie over at Cowtown Chronicles got us up to speed on the doings at the Rahr Brewery and their new German-style IPA, “Stormcloud.” Also, Rahr's got its own blog that's pretty good, so check it out.

  • Over at Stash Dauber-land, Ken's got an update about WRECK ROOM STORIES: True Tales from the Home of Rock 'n' Roll in Fort Worth As Told By the People Who Were There, which will be for sale at the Woodeye/Daddy's Soul Donut show this Saturday (4.21.2007) at the Wreck. And, just for you Paul, there is a cool post on Japanese Rock that you need to check out.

  • At Fort Worthology, I think we need to give a nod to Kevin's general excellence keeping us posted on all the new development going on. I'm quite shocked by just how much new stuff is getting built. In five years' time, the downtown skyline is going to be radically different. Hell, the 7th Street corridor and the whole Fort Worth South area will be different.

  • General Rumor-mongering: I heard that the old Black Dog was going to be re-born at the old 7th Haven space on West 7th. ... Also, during the latest round of layoffs at Radio Shack, supposedly someone had a heart attack when they got their pink slip. (Ouch!) Don't forget to pay you're COBRA premiums.

  • FRED'S UPDATE: I went to Fred's Thursday night and did not have a positive dining experience. I ordered my all-time favorite Fred's meal, the Chipotle-butter ribeye, and to make a long story short, I left an hour later with an empty stomach, a refund and a surly attitude. So I sent an e-mail to Terry Chandler and this is the response I got: "Friend Steve, Terry Chandler from Freds here. I am flabbergasted to say the least. Please do not let this affect your opinion about Freds Cafe. I know its hard to swallow but if you would come back I'll buy you a steak." THAT is customer service. All is forgiven. You had me at 'Friend.'
