The folks gathered around the small cocktail tables in the Encore Lounge have one thing in common -- big smiles. That's because they've just spilled out of a performance by Fort Worth's most popular comedy troupe, Four Day Weekend. The small dark room located just outside the venue's performance hall is comfortable and inviting with brightly painted walls covered with pieces from local artists. The small stage at one end of the bar is custom-made for stand-up comedians looking to try out new material on a smaller audience. Just make sure you get there before or after a big show, because the bar closes during Four Day Weekend performances.
