I do hope AT&T does something with its entertainment library. There are lots of potential projects would definitely put the discovery district on the map. A true Game of Thrones or West World themed saloon. A Sopranos italian restaurant. A Friends -- which AT&T now owns the rights to -- coffee shop. Etc.


I like these ideas....

Do that for cowboy games.

Brilliant idea! What a great way to regularly draw out people to the city.

Not sure why any significant number of people would want to hang out on Main Street for football games being played 20 miles (or further) away.

Same reason why people go to watch parties, or watch games at bars. It's free, more convenient, different atmosphere.

It also helps that a lot of people are ditching Cable TV these days and don't have the ability to watch games at home any more. I realize you can easily get a cheap HD Antenna which will get you channels for free, but a lot of people (like myself) can't really be bothered to do that. Then again, I'm not a sports fan, so the fact that I don't have an antenna doesn't mean much. I will say that, even though I'm not really a fan, I would absolutely watch a few games here just for the experience of it all.

No kidding... Watching with a group of fans without having to deal with the hell that is Arlington, would be AWESOME.

Yeah, I know people who drive to Dallas to watch the Cowboy games because even they don't want to deal with the traffic and aren't the kind that wants to pay Jerry Jones prices for most games.

I'm imagining Downtown Dallas looking like the area around UT in Austin on Gameday. It's really cool to be in Austin on gameday and see everyone out and about wearing burnt orange. Would love to see something like that in Downtown as well.

It's been a while since I've seen the patios at Stone Street packed. From last night:

Ye Olde Scarlet Pimpernel Tavern (yes, seriously...) aka the old City Tavern space opened last night at 6. The space is definitely much improved. We'll see how they do.

This ex-high school English teacher also loves the name. "No, kids, a scarlet pimpernel is a flower, not a zit."

What is the new place called and what it's the concept?

1900 Elm: They went through all that trouble to get approval for a corner-facing entrance to this aborted restaurant only to remove the steps leading up to the door. No clue what's going on with this (maybe it needs to be ADA compliant now), but it seems like a comedy of errors at this point.
